Cranford is a fascinating Grade II listed detached period house in a conservation area. The house is mostly built of stone elevations (with some brick) under a tiled and thatched roof. The roof was re thatched partially in 2008 and the remainder in 2017. There is oil fired central heating. Originally a 17th Century farm house, the property has been extended over the years. There is a fine regency styled wing which was once a shop but now used as a self contained annex as there is a ground floor bedroom, kitchen and shower room adjacent. There are many delightful period features and the house has an atmosphere and charm of its own. Outside there is a courtyard and workshop/garage which is currently used as an art studio. Superfast broadband is available.
On the ground floor a door leads into a fine flagstone entrance hall with a door on the right leading into the regency style drawing room. Oak floors (throughout), two multi paned windows to the front and fine regency casement doors with fan light over to the rear. There is a hamstone fireplace with inset wood burner. Door leads into kitchen with units, built in oven and hob. To the rear there is access into the courtyard as well as a shower room with large shower cubicle, wc and basin. The bedroom to the front is double aspect and has a period former fireplace. Returning to the entrance hall a door leads into the magnificent galleried dining room with high open vaulted ceiling, first floor galleries and an attractive decorative fireplace. From the dining room, double doors lead into a good sized office with windows to the front and in turn a door leads from the office into the sitting room which is double aspect with window seats and has an attractive hamstone open fireplace with beams. The kitchen is fitted with a range of oak units and has an AGA inset into a former inglenook fireplace. Just off the kitchen is a good sized pantry as well as boot room with tiled floor and door to rear. From the boot room there is access into the utility room with tiled floor and a shower room comprising shower, wc, natural stone basin and cupboards.
On the first floor is a landing with galleried doors overlooking the dining room, two linen cupboards and loft access. The master bedroom has a range of built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room comprising shower, wc and wash hand basin. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom comprising roll top bath, vanity unit and wc.
There are neat gardens to the front of the property, but the majority of gardens are to the rear. There is a fine walled garden mostly laid to lawn with attractive herbaceous borders also with pond and pergola. Adjacent to the house is a sun terrace and to the rear are several gardener's potting sheds. To the side of the property there is parking for two cars beyond which double gates and personal door lead into the courtyard where there is further parking if required. In the courtyard is the large detached garage/workshop/office outbuilding with power, light and plumbing. There is also an oil tank and amenities storage and an opening within the hamstone into the principal garden.
