This unique and individual character property has been the much loved family home of our vendors for many years, now in need of some updating it presents the perfect opportunity for buyers looking to create their own dream home in the country.
Set up a long private driveway which allows the property to enjoy a high degree of privacy, you arrive at a parking area with ample space for several vehicles. Continuing through a pretty wrought iron gate you arrive to the front elevation of the house and the beautiful front garden. The house features a handsome painted stone façade with a lovely traditional clay tiled roof and pretty porch.
On entering the property, there is a welcoming entrance hallway with a sitting room to the left with a lovely inglenook fireplace with a gas stove and a characterful exposed stone wall. To the opposite side of the hallway is another generous reception room, again featuring a smaller period fireplace with a wonderful Oak mantle, and a delightful window seat. To the rear of the ground floor is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of beech fronted units with space for a 'Rangemaster' style cooker and a free-standing fridge freezer. There is a practical tiled floor and access to a small side utility space.
A third reception room, which is currently being utilised as a storeroom, has huge potential to be transformed into a formal dining room or even a kid's playroom/fourth bedroom. There is also a useful ground floor bathroom with a full three piece modern bathroom suite.
On the first floor are the three bedrooms, two of which are good size doubles with the third a generous single, along with a further shower room.
