A substantial five bedroom farm house of approx. 3700 SQ FT dating back to the 1600s. SUPERB PERIOD FEATURES including a stunning gallery landing. Other benefits include OFF ROAD PARKING, EN-SUITES to three of the bedrooms and A LARGE GARDEN lined with mature shrubs and trees.
We believe the original part of this substantial Country Manor House was constructed in the post medieval period circa 1606. This attractive home was later extended in the late 1800’s to provide a sizeable property retaining many of its key features and offering an abundance of character with its thatched roof, beamed ceilings and open fireplaces.
You will be instantly impressed by the opulent entrance hall where eyes are drawn towards a wide staircase and galleried landing. To the right of the hall is the grand dual aspect sitting room with a high beamed ceiling and feature open fireplace. From here is the family room where access can be gained to the garden and dining room. The dining room which can also be accessed from the hall is situated within the original part of the house and features low beam ceilings and an original open fireplace. A door from here leads to the utility room which in turn leads to a study, WC and kitchen.
The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys a double aspect and is well equipped with wall and base units with granite worktops over. Integrated appliances include a gas Rayburn oven, eye level NEFF double oven, NEFF 4 ring has hob and dishwasher.
The impressive first floor landing is illuminated by a large lantern window and provides access to five double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is a lovely sunny room with a double aspect to the front and side elevation and benefits a dressing room with storage space and shower room. Bedroom two also benefits a generously sized ensuite bathroom and bedrooms three, four and five are all serviced by the spaciously sized family bathroom with roll top bath, his and her basins and a walk in shower cubicle.
Agents Note: Part of the current garden will be sectioned off and retained by the current owner.
