OVERVIEW Steeped in history, this property offers a wealth of charm throughout with family-sized living accommodation in addition to an annex within the old bakery which can provide independent living for a teenager or adult children, or indeed for different generations of a family living under one roof! Bakery Cottage and the old bakery have been linked by the entrance hall of the home and this is accessed through a solid oak entrance door with a separate door entry into the annex accommodation, which features a sitting room with original bakery oven, varnished timber floor and pleasant views out to farmland at the rear.

The main house offers four bedrooms to the first floor, with the master bedroom offering a range of fitted wardrobes and pleasant views of the private lawned gardens. Completing the accommodation on the first floor is a bathroom featuring a four piece suite of stunning and stylish appointment. On the ground floor, there are three/four reception rooms to the home, with the principal room being the living room, a dual aspect room with exposed brick open fireplace and with an enclosed staircase off which provides access to the first floor accommodation. An open plan feel exists to the dining/sitting room where between the two rooms is a large opening with an exposed ceiling beam and there is oak engineered flooring.

The property benefits from a combination of double glazed units and has oil fired central heating, with the heating system operated by the 'Alpha' range oven in the kitchen. Externally, the property offers off-road parking via a private block paved driveway comfortably for 2-3 vehicles and has the added benefit of a further off-road parking space at the foot of the private lawned garden, which itself is notable in size. Linked to the property is the old bakery which is part converted to provide further living accommodation but offers two further compartments used as storage facilities currently but could indeed provide further accommodation.
