Plovers Barron is a Grade II listed cottage believed to date to the 16th century and having been extensively restored in 1986, offers good sized 3 bedroom accommodation with an abundance of charm & character throughout.
Originally constructed as three individual cottages, the property fell into considerable disrepair before being sold some 30 years ago and was then transformed into one dwelling whilst retaining as many of the original features as possible.
No stone was left unturned in the renovation works with the roof being part thatched & part slated enhancing the properties character, whilst oil fired central heating was an added addition.
One of the many features in the property is the original plank & muntin screen wall in the entrance hall which has been fully restored together with the inglenook fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams.
Two reception rooms and a cloakroom are situated on the ground floor together with a kitchen benefiting from built-in appliances and a feature oil fired Aga.
On the first floor is a master bedroom with an en-suite and adjoining dressing room/study plus 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom.
The large rear garden measures approximately 120` x 37` with a stone patio area immediately adjoining the property, whilst the majority of the garden is lawned with mature hedge boundaries, flower & vegetable beds, an orchard and an attractive stone summer house/outbuilding.
To the front of the property is an area of hardstanding leading to the 21` x 18` garage with up & over door, power, light, water tap and door to the rear garden.
