Going through the front door and into the lobby area the first feature is right in front of you. This magnificent oak staircase is still in its original state and looking up you can see the very top of the building. It truly is a work of art in itself. To the side of the door is the original stone sink set into the wall.
To the left, through the stone doorway you enter the dining room (approx 37m²) and you are immediately faced with more craftmanship - an incredible open fireplace and two massive oak pillars, one at each end of the room, give it a grand and majestic feel but on a comfortable and cosy scale. This would make the most perfect setting for any Christmas get-together. There is also a little brick bread oven alongside the main fireplace which is another lovely feature. The floor has terracotta tiles and underfloor heating, there are windows to the front and back of the property and a door leading to the back garden.
From the dining room you enter a large kitchen (approx 14m²), with its vaulted ceiling and oak beams alongside other features set into the wall such as ornate corbals and 2, yes 2, pretty little bread oven features. There is ample work surface and cupboard space and a breakfast bar facing the long picture window that overlooks the garden to the side of the house. This room has an electric radiator. Through a door you enter a large utilility room(approx 8m²) for white goods, the electricity meter and even more storage. Terracotta floor tiling is throughout. There is a door to the front of the house leading out to the drive.
To the right of the Lobby area, you are again struck by even more fabulousness in the living room (approx 40m²) with a monumental stone fire place with ornate feature brick work at the back and a large wood burning stove. This room also has the feeling of magnificence in a warm and cosy way. Just think of those cold winter nights being snuggled in front of the warmth of the blazing fire. There are windows to the front and back, a big built in cupboard with oak doors and oak beams throughout. This part of the house also benefits from underfloor heating.
Leading off the sitting room is a cloakroom with toilet, sink , it also houses the hot water immersion heater.
Up the beautiful staircase to the first floor there is a landing area with a window looking out to the far reaching countyside. Under the window is a cast iron radiator.

Potentially Bedroom 3 (approx 30m²)
This room is in the apex of the roof but is large and has good head height throughout. It has three windows to the front, side and rear of the property. There is also a huge interior apex window where the light from the landing streams in to fill this space. Half of the floorspace is covered with lovely terracotta tomettes.

The large mature garden surrounds the house, the land is 1.9 hectares and comes with a pond, 2 wells, a beautiful woodland area. 2 substantial outbuildings with great potential. There is ample space if you wanted to build a swimming pool (subject to planning permission) or create your own small holding.
There is a large barn split into 3 sections, one houses the oil tank/boiler and log storage, the middle section could become a garage/workshop and the third section is already divided into 2 rooms as this used to be the dressmaking factory, electricity and plumbing are already in place but will need updating.
