Description: A very pretty 2 bedroom Victorian semi-detached house set within the heart of the village.
Typical of the period, with high ceilings, large sash windows giving lots of light, with the more recent additions to include a reception hall and front entrance, as well as an extension to the kitchen/dining room. The extensions have seen the tasteful use of old stock brick and slate to harmonise properly with the original building.
The interior of the property has retained many of the original features with a pretty bay window and planked flooring both in stripped, polished pine and a Victorian style open log fire to the sitting room.
The family room has a pretty open fireplace with a door to under stairs storage, stripped pine flooring and original naturally polished pine cupboards to one side of the fireplace. The original window overlooks a small courtyard.
There is a walk through access to the kitchen/dining room with polished terracotta tiled flooring and a range of high and low level cupboard and drawer units, a fitted SMEG 5 ring gas hob with electric oven and stainless steel extractor over. The working surfaces are hardwood, with a porcelain sink unit and mixer tap. Double aspect windows give lots of light and a stable door gives access to the rear garden.
Both bedrooms are doubles with large sash windows and bedroom 1 has a large ensuite bathroom. There is a shower room on the ground floor and both bathrooms have been attractively refitted with the ensuite featuring a Victorian enamelled bath.
The front garden has a winding old brick cobble edged path from the separate, double off-road car parking area owned by the property. There are pretty gardens to the front and rear and the property is set quite a long way back from the road with well-maintained lawns, and shrubberies. The rear garden has a large paved terrace area, part edged in old cobbles with a pergola, wisteria, clematis, vines and a seating area for summer dining and barbecues.
At the rear of the garden there is a purpose built detached office with power and Wi-Fi connectivity.
