Full description

Located in the heart of this highly regarded village of Somerby is this charming period property which has a wealth of history and an abundance of character known locally as the former village shop.

The property boasts large proportions with high ceilings as well as a substantial vaulted cellar which the current owner has converted and would make an ideal office or family room etc. In brief the accommodation comprises an entrance hallway, large lounge and dining room, refitted breakfast kitchen, vaulted cellar whilst on the first floor is a galleried landing, three double bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room and a further large family bathroom.
