This property has a fascinating mix of architectural designs and period features representing many centuries; parts of it dating back to the Tudor period and others being Georgian. The internal decoration is that clever blend of the contemporary alongside period features, making this a very well presented property which has been extensively refurbished to include rewiring and secondary glazing. It is a handsome terraced house constructed of brick with a timber frame but faced with Bath stone from the Georgian period. The house has a roof of both slate and tiles and is perfectly placed in the centre of this very popular village. To the left of the entrance hall is a reception room which features exposed beams and a useful cupboard. A few steps lead from the entrance hall into an inner hallway from which all the other rooms on this floor are accessed. The sitting room is a lovely light and airy space with views of and access to the garden. It features wooden beams, a multi-fuel stove, an attractive limestone floor and a small area off to one side which could be used as a study. The dining room, currently used by the vendors as an additional sitting room, has a window with attractive shutters, a stripped floor of elm wood and a feature fireplace constructed of mellow brick with a stone mantle and slate hearth. The kitchen has a window overlooking the garden as well as a glass sky light flooding the room with natural light and is fitted with a bespoke range of floor and wall units in a most attractive design. It has a Travertine limestone floor, Star galaxy granit worktops, an electric range cooker with a halogen hob and includes plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. At the rear of the kitchen is a single WC and a door accessing the garden. The extensive basement is spacious, well lit and is accessed from the inner hallway. Part of it is currently used as a workshop and it includes many period features and some of the history of the property can be learnt from the exposed wood, brick and stone in this area. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a family bathroom attractively presented with contemporary fittings. Many of the rooms feature exposed beams, period fireplaces and some have built in wardrobes. There is an extensive roof space which is reported to cover the same area as the first floor, less the bathroom. It is believed there was once a staircase to it but this was removed some time ago.
Garden and grounds
To the rear of the property is a private walled and terraced cottage garden constructed of paving stones and weathered brick beds. There is a sun terrace area with space for garden furniture and steps lead to the various levels where the beds are filled with roses, mature shrubs and other seasonal flowers.
