THE PROPERTY
The Gate House, superbly set within the conservation area adjacent to the church, is an excellent example of a characterful family home that is believed to date back to the early 19th century. The property presents in the main painted brick elevations below a hipped slate roof with a wonderful selection of large sash windows, many of which retain their original shutters and with a formal porch with stone slab flooring to the front. Attached to the main house, by a link is a large thatched playroom/studio which is also attached at the ground floor level, to the neighbouring Gate House Cottage. The accommodation extends to over 4,000 sq ft (excluding the outbuildings and garage that could subject to the necessary consents, afford further accommodation if required) with many of the original character features intact such as the beautiful banister handrail to the stairs, cornicing, picture rails and very appealingly the traditional service rooms: utility room, scullery and pantry.

Glazed doors leads into the porch which in turn gives access via a six panel entrance door with fanlight above to the hall. All the principle rooms lead off the front to rear halls, with a main staircase to the front and a secondary staircase to the rear. The sitting room benefits from the superb proportions traditional of this era, with a shuttered sash window to the front and French windows to the side elevation and garden. The study, across the hall, like the sitting room also benefits from duel aspect windows and a working fireplace with marble mantelpiece. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a LPG fired 2 oven Aga Range cooker set into the original high mantled fireplace, base and wall mounted kitchen units, a work surface with inset double bowl, single drainer stainless steel sink unit, four ring electric hob and a built-in oven and separate microwave oven. The floor is tiled and the door to the rear hall is split with a butlers serving shelf. Another door leads to the scullery, pantry and hobby room beyond. The dining room is superbly proportioned to allow for both large round and long formal dining tables, with two large casement windows to the side garden with fanlight windows above and a fireplace with brick hearth feature. A door leads off to the side hall, which in turn gives access to the cloakroom and the playroom/studio, which provides access to both front and rear gardens. The thatched playroom/studio is a superbly versatile space with ½ glazed double doors and windows to the front garden, vaulted ceiling, exposed timber floors and a fireplace housing a log burning stove. At the rear of house is a large utility room accessed from both the rear hall and a door to the external passageway which divides the property from the outbuildings. The utility room houses the oil fired boiler (replaced in May 2015) and hot water tank with an ‘all year round’ radiator located below a ‘Sheila Maid’ clothes rack, there is also a sink, quarry tiled floor and door leading outside.
On the first floor there is a split landing which leads to five well-proportioned bedrooms with 2 family bathrooms and a 3rd wc with 2nd stairs to the rear.
