vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. At the southern end
of the hall is a magnificent sitting room with an attractive
corner fireplace and French doors to the garden. There
are 3 well-proportioned bedrooms and a well-appointed
family bathroom with panelled bath, walk-in shower
cubicle, WC and wash hand basin set in vanity unit. The
kitchen/breakfast room is a good size and is fitted with
traditional kitchen units and appliances and has planning
permission to substantially extend. The planning
permission also allows for an extension to the side of the
property, which could be made into an impressive master
bedroom suite and a utility room.
Gates open onto a gravel drive, which sweeps around mature trees, shrubs and lawn to a parking and turning area in front of a double garage and modern timber workshop. The workshop has lighting, power, electric heating and plumbing. A sandstone path flanked by lawn leads from the parking area to a terrace by the entrance porch. At the rear of the property is a further terrace by the kitchen, with an expanse of lawn stretching out beyond. Within the garden is a pond, well, greenhouse and some lovely mature shrubs and trees. The end of the garden turns from lawn into woodland, where there is a
garden store and log cabin. At the end of the woodland is a
gate onto adjoining private woodland, with public footpaths
running through it.
