We have pleasure in offering to the market this simply stunning Grade II Listed character conversion which offers a deceptive level of versatile accommodation as well as a wealth of character and features. Over recent years the property has seen a sympathetic programme of refurbishment combining the benefits of contemporary living with the elements expected of a more traditional home and occupies a deceptively large and established plot which extends to approximately a quarter of an acre.
This superb home is large enough to accommodate a growing or extended family and every room offers its own individual elements of character, immaculately presented throughout and finished to a high specification with a great deal of thought and attention to detail but still retaining a homely atmosphere throughout.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall which leads through into two reception rooms, the sitting room has an exposed brick fireplace and beams, dual aspect and access out into the westerly facing garden. The formal dining room links through into a stunning kitchen with dual aspect and high vaulted ceiling, appointed with a generous range of bespoke units and central island. This flows through into a secondary hallway with utility area and what is currently utilised as a home office.
From the entrance hall, stairs lead down into a fantastic snug partly located in the basement, making an ideal home office or teenage games room tucked away from the main receptions.
The versatility of the property continues with a ground floor suite providing an excellent space either as the master bedroom, guest suite or ideal for extended families with a dependent relative.
To the first floor, there are two further double bedrooms, one with ensuite and a further bathroom and to the second floor, there is a further double bedroom in the eaves.
The property occupies a delightful plot accessed off a private driveway and looking into a courtyard setting to the front with private gardens to the side and rear, being of a generous size and beautifully established with an abundance of trees and shrubs.
Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate this fascinating and beautifully presented character home.
