Description

This beautiful family home originally dates back to the 16th Century and has been sympathetically extended with a recent oak framed addition. The original part of the property was formed as two separate cottages and was knocked into one residence in the 1970s. The current owners have created a new layout to suit modern day living with a great family entertaining space over looking the garden. There are some areas that are in need of finishing, giving the option to make a personal mark on the property.

The current main entrance hall is approached from the side of the property entering into the newer part, immediately you are hit with the enormous light that floods through the glass panels. There is a useful downstairs cloakroom and oak staircase leading up to the first floor. Off the hallway is the formal sitting room with great character features including the Quarry tiled floor and double sided woodburner that is shared with the dining room. There is a door from the living room that leads into a space that is currently unfinished, this could become an office or boot room dependant on desire.

The real heart of the home is the kitchen breakfast room, designed for entertaining, offering a centre island, space for dining table or sofas and French doors to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with two single ovens, large integrated fridge and dishwasher. The formal dining room is conveniently located just off the kitchen space with beautiful quarry , the room could be easily transformed into a snug area or play room. The kitchen area extends along a galley which is fitted with storage cupboards and extra worktops, the boiler can also be found here. At the end is the utility room fitted with a Belfast sink, integrated freezer, additional storage cupboards, plumbing for washing machine and space for dryer.

The first floor landing has doors to all bedrooms and the family bathroom. All bedrooms are doubles and all have fitted wardrobes. The most impressive of the bedrooms is the master, with a vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling windows over looking the garden along with a modern ensuite shower room. The family bathroom is fitted with a four piece suite with ornate roll top bath and separate shower.

There are gardens to front and rear mainly laid to lawn with shrub boarders. The rear garden is enclosed by fencing creating a safe space for young children or dogs. The hardstanding out from the patio doors could easily be transformed into a large patio or decking area. PLEASE NOTE: There is a shed at the top of the drive as you come into the property.
