The Old Parsonage is reputed to have its origins in the 18th century with extensive 19th century alterations. The house is Grade II Listed, being of Architectural and Historic Interest and accordingly its original period features have been retained and greatly enhanced.
Constructed with rendered brick elevations beneath thatched roofs (re-ridged in 2013) and with slate roofed extensions; It has been sympathetically restored during the last 20 years or so and the result is a light and characterful easy flow of rooms on both ground and first floors.
Numerous noteworthy features include:- sash windows with shutters, fine open fireplaces, an elegant staircase, Victorian patterned floor tiles through the reception hall.
The L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of painted wood cupboards and drawer units, a blue Aga and tiled floor.
The bathrooms have recently been re styled to a high specification and there is gas fired central heating throughout.
Adjoining the main house is the former Coach House; converted into a stylish self contained annexe/apartment in 1995. This is ideal for guest accommodation, anyone working from home or as an annexe for a dependant relative. It would also lend itself to a holiday cottage/letting cottage if required.
