The interior oozes traditional charm throughout, evident immediately due to the traditional floor tiles in the entrance porch. From here, a part glazed door opens into a warm and welcoming hall with lovely timber panelling to dado height – something that features throughout the interior. The timber staircase extends to the upper floor. To either side of the hall lie both public rooms; the lounge features a magnificent feature fireplace, exposed floor boards and fabulous full height windows. The dining room is a great space for entertaining – lots of room for a large table and chairs and again with feature fireplace and floor to ceiling sash and case windows. A hatch to the rear opens to the adjoining kitchen – this is a lovely space, presented in traditional farmhouse style with a great range of units, space for every day dining and an external 9 pane glazed door. The ground floor cloakroom with WC and pedestal sink provides a useful ground floor facility.
The first floor hosts a lovely galleried style landing with window to the front. Bedroom three, a pleasant double room lies to the rear of the landing as does the shower room which is very freshly presented. To the front bedroom two is a generous double with built in storage and large windows. A step from the landing then leads to the impressive master bedroom – providing a real sense of grandeur this is a beautiful restful room, again with large windows and magnificent feature fireplace. Built in cupboards provide good storage.
A permanent staircase extends off the first floor landing to a fantastic attic space. Fully floored and with velux windows to the front and rear. There is obvious scope here for further development and conversion, subject to consents and would make an ideal studio or office space.
