You enter through a pair of 5-bar wooden gates at the entrance to a sloping driveway with plentiful space for parking and turning. Built in the 1930’s the property has a real Arts & Crafts period feeling to it with stone transom & mullion windows, quoins in the stone work and label moulding detailing around the entrance porch. Inside the porch you are greeted by a fine solid wooden fillet door with decorative nail heads and strap hinges and by a wall mounted Gothic wrought iron working mechanical door bell.
Once inside the hallway the first thing that strikes you is the stripped wood open well staircase with decorative balusters and newel post with a grand finial and sympathetic carpet runner. The entrance hallway provides some storage, small seating area and doors to the lounge, reception room and kitchen.
The bright spacious lounge is enhanced with box bay to the southern aspect letting in light. Solid wood flooring throughout and with feature log burner set within a decorative stone surround. Further finishing touches are modern wall lights, LED ceiling lights and wall mounted audio speakers.
The reception room lends itself to use as a formal dining room or informal family or children’s room. You find solid wood flooring throughout and another feature log burner set within a wooden fire surround and mantel, typical of the period, with a mirror set in to the overmantel. Modern touches again include wall lights and wall mounted audio speakers and floor to ceiling radiators. Glazed French style doors lead to the conservatory.
The conservatory is bright and airy with glazed roof and windows set on a dwarf stone wall. Solid wood flooring throughout with floor mounted miniature period radiators. French doors lead out to the garden whilst a pair of wooden bi-folding doors open up giving access to the kitchen.
The kitchen has a nice open-plan feeling to it with a practical central island for dining and preparation. This aspect of the kitchen provides a range of wall and floor units with granite work surface atop and large double oven cooker with matching chimney cooker hood. To the rear of the kitchen are further wall and floor units with wooden work surface, a large pantry and downstairs cloakroom.
To the first floor you have access to three double bedrooms, single bedroom and family bathroom. Usefully any wasted space on the landing has been utilised to provide additional storage cupboards. Two double bedrooms and furnished with their own ensuite shower rooms with WC and wash basins. The family bathroom has a good size walk-in shower, bespoke bath area and feature stained glass window along with WC and wash basin.
From the first floor landing a further open well staircase takes you up into the double bedroom in the loft conversion. This could be a children’s delight with bedroom and further snug area and hidden storage room. Velux windows provide natural light and afford lovely views.
Externally the rear garden has a stone laid patio/seating area which can be accessed from the conservatory. The remaining garden is laid to lawn with a fenced area currently housing a few chickens and further on a decked seating area with small feature pond and lighting. To the rear of the garden is a raspberry patch and compost area. To the side aspect of the house is a large wood store and access to the garage. The garage has lots of useful storage space and is wider than a standard garage so accommodating for modern vehicles.
