Offering a wealth of character and features and a particularly versatile level of accommodation over two floors, including a substantial single storey element attached to the rear which could be utilised as a separate annexe, making it perfect for extended families with dependent relatives, or even separate accommodation for teenagers or home office.

In total this unique home provides up to 5 double bedrooms, 4 bath/shower rooms and 3 receptions as well as beautifully appointed bespoke farmhouse style kitchen in pippy oak with granite work surfaces, attractive flagstone flooring and high specification integrated appliances.

This in turn links through to a cosy everyday sitting room, again with attractive fireplace and leading through into the entrance hall with cloakroom off.

Every room offers its own elements of character with much of the original property having attractive stone mullion leaded windows, exposed internal brick and stonework as well as beamed ceilings. This is complemented by tastefully modernised bathrooms and gas central heating as well as relatively neutral decoration throughout.
