SSTC: A wonderful opportunity to acquire a delightful a semi-detached house which enjoys an idyllic semi-rural location within this popular hamlet. The property is understood to date from circa 1860 and therefore has numerous period features typical of its age, whilst also benefiting from sealed unit double glazing and oil fired central heating.
The property was sympathetically extended to provide spacious and versatile accommodation. This comprises an entrance porch which has been built in a traditional style in oak with the original front door leading through to a lounge with fitted wood burner and aspect to the front. A latch door takes you through to an open-plan kitchen/dining room with oak flooring. The kitchen is fitted with a range of oak fronted units to base and eye level, with complementing work surfaces having an inset double bowl porcelain sink. There are a number of integrated appliances including an electric hob with extractor hood over and an eye oven/grill. There is also space for a 'fridge/freezer, plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. From the dining area French doors lead to a courtyard garden and there are stairs rising to the first floor with storage cupboards under. The oak flooring continues into a double aspect sitting room enjoys a wonderful aspect over the gardens. This room could also act as a ground floor bedroom as it has an adjacent shower room fitted in a contemporary white suite and comprising a shower cubicle and wc. From the first floor landing and approached via latched doors are two double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has views over the garden and has oak flooring. The second bedroom has exposed floor boards and a sealed fireplace with wooden surround. They are served by a contemporary bathroom suite with power shower over the bath, wash basin and wc. The limestone tiled floor has under-floor heating and there are also storage cupboards and an opaque window giving borrowed light from the landing. The third bedroom is an attic room with views over the garden and countryside in the distance. Further exposed floor boards, eaves storage and small loft space.
Externally and to the front is a double-width gravel driveway with lighting and a beech hedge with pathways to the front door. The gardens extend mainly to the side, continuing to the rear and siding on to fields. The gardens are a delight and are a particular feature, having previously been professionally designed, planted with numerous trees and shrubs including flowering Cherry, Magnolia, Acer, Oak, Plum, Apple and Hawthorn. There are two useful outbuildings in the form of a large workshop, garden store and office/studio with power, light and storage space. This is approached via a bridge over a pond . There is also a boiler room/garden tool store housing the 'Grant' oil fired boiler (installed September 2014).
