Full description

This attractively presented, detached brick-built property is set in the heart of the sought-after village of Croston. The well-proportioned accommodation includes four separate reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen, master bedroom with en suite and three further double bedrooms.

The gated driveway provides ample parking for several cars and leads across the cobbled courtyard to a double garage adjoining the converted stable block. Upon entering, the vestibule displays the original tiled flooring and mat-well before passing through a half glazed internal door into the sitting room that lies beyond.

The generously sized room is the first of four equally well proportioned reception rooms the property offers and makes for an excellent greeting area with its exposed floor boards, high ceilings, neat coving and traditional open fire place with tiled surround, and the room has a light nature due to the large Upvc window to the front. Exposed floorboards continue from here into the charming snug which is situated just off the breakfast kitchen and gives access to a number of rooms in the property and houses the staircase to the first floor. The rooms has a set of single glazed wooden windows set either side of a single glazed patio door opening onto the courtyard to the rear of the property, a multi fuel burning stove sits in a hearth to one side and there is space for a settee under the open staircase.

Following on, at the front of the property is a large and comfortable family room with high ceilings, neat coving and tasteful modern décor, a traditional fireplace with ornate wooden surround, a tiled hearth and large Upvc double glazed window to the front. Again, off the snug is a good sized utility which runs parallel to the family room, it houses the updated gas combination boiler and offers space for a washing machine and tumble dryer as well as additional storage, essential in a family home.

The breakfast kitchen is set within a single storey extension which links the main part of the property to the stable block and garage and used to house the bakery. There are large Upvc windows to one side, overlooking the courtyard, and a side door situated half way along the building giving access to said courtyard. The galley style kitchen has red quarry tiled flooring, vaulted ceilings and a good-sized pantry cupboard. The kitchen is fitted with a wide range of white gloss units and a butcher's block style walnut worktop and end panels. There is space for a 600mm range cooker, fridge freezer and automatic dish washer. The space opens into a breakfast area with space for a dining table and chairs to one side. Finally, to the rear of the kitchen there is a down stairs W.C. with ornate tiled floor.

You then pass into what was once the stable block. This two storey building has been tastefully and sympathetically converted, retaining many original features such as beams and newel posts, a mix of Upvc French doors opening on the courtyard gardens, upstairs port-hole windows, a Juliette balcony and Velux sky-lights coupled with a modern décor bring the stable block into the 21st century and getting the balance of old and new just right. The additional downstairs living space is currently used as a dining room providing ample space for the twelve seater table and additional furniture, as well as a small cloakroom to the rear of the stables and, upstairs, bedroom four creates a very good sized double to rival the master in terms of space. However, this space could have a multitude of uses such as home office, play room or even annex accommodation.

Returning to the snug, a turned staircase rises to the first floor from this central room, before reaching the landing which gives access to the three high ceiling bedrooms, a bathroom as well as the insulated loft. The master bedroom overlooks the front garden and enjoys a decorative fireplace and a central pendant light. The adjoining half tiled en suite has an opaque window to the rear and is fitted with a corner tiled shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin, low flush W.C. and a heated towel rail. Bedroom two enjoys the same outlook to the front, a decorative fire place to one side and is a good sized double room. The third double room in the main body of the property faces to the rear of the overlooks the converted stables, garage and courtyard.

The partially tiled family bathroom has an opaque window to the rear, tiled splash areas, timber panel effect walls and checked laminate flooring forming the backdrop to the traditional three piece white suite.

Set slightly back off the road-side, a walled and gated front garden leads to the timber front door which is painted in a deep red complimenting the arching brick surround and red brick facade of the property, once the local village bakery. A cobbled driveway runs to the right-hand side of the house and provides parking for numerous cars, a timber gate part way down separates the driveway and the courtyard gardens to the rear of the property and gives added security and privacy to the home. Once through these gates, a single story double garage adjoining the stable block lies ahead with a large integral store to the side. The cobbles continue across the full breadth of the courtyard to create a large, safe and secluded area that can be accessed from the kitchen and snug. The border area is planted out with an array of shrubs and pretty clematis climbs up trellising attached to the two storey stables.
