This property, which would make a wonderful B&B or simply a spacious family home or holiday home, is arranged as follows:
The front door opens onto the entrance hall (7m²) with tiled floor where you will find the first staircase (with under-stairs storage) and doors to the left and right. To the left is a sitting room (16m²) with wooden floor, large window to the front and a wide brick and beam fireplace with wood-burning stove. To the right you enter the dining room (17m²) with tiled floor, white painted beams, patio doors to the front, a built-in corner cupboard, open fireplace and a shallow shelf running all around the room at picture rail height. Beyond the dining room is the country-style kitchen (28m²) with tiled floor, exposed beams, some exposed stonework, fitted units, range-style cooker, and a wood-burning stove. There are windows and a glazed door to the front, and also a door to the area containing the second staircase. This area (11m²) is currently used as an office / storage area, and another door opens to the ground floor bathroom (4m²) with bath, washbasin and toilet.
First floor (part accessed by main staircase):
At the top of the stairs a landing gives access to 3 bedrooms, all with windows to the front. This whole level has wooden floors. The first bedroom (12m²) has an ensuite (4m²) with shower, toilet and washbasin. The other 2 bedrooms (both 10m²) share a separate shower room accessible from the landing (4m²) also with shower, toilet and washbasin. There is also a hatch with pull-down ladder to access the attic space from here.
First floor (part accessed by second staircase):
At the top of the stairs, you arrive directly in a second sitting area with some exposed beams, currently arranged as a TV room with a corner sofa and a window to the rear. From here an open doorway leads to the master bedroom (20m²) with exposed beams, 2 windows to the front, an ensuite (4.5m²) with shower, toilet and washbasin, and a walk-in wardrobe (3m²).
To the left of the house a wide alleyway (with lockable doors both ends) connects the front and rear gardens. From here, a door to the left leads us to the workshop (41m²) with concrete floor and large garage doors to the front. To the left of this is a double height room (25m²) with concrete floor, complete with ancient bread oven. To the left of that is a room currently used as a utility room, housing an occasional kitchen, laundry equipment, extra freezers, etc. Accessed from the rear garden but above the alley and workshop is a huge games room (66m²) on two levels, which could also be used as a gym/exercise area, crafts room, or work/meeting space. At the far end of the garden (by the second entrance) is a hangar (75m²) offering covered parking (on an earth floor) and at the end of that a wooden shed with concrete floor (22m²).
Outside: The main entrance to the property is via a curved drive up to a gravelled area in front of the main block of outbuildings to the left of the house. There is also pedestrian access via a gate with steps up to the more formal garden area directly in front of the house, featuring decorative box hedging, wisteria and a well. This section is also fenced and gated for the security of animals or small children. There is a large section of garden to the left of the house, which then wraps in a broad band around to the rear and on beyond the house to a separate entrance from another road. It is here that you will find the hangar and shed.
