The Property Built in 1880, this house has much to offer and combines period character with great flexibility of living space. The current layout is ideal for someone who wants to work from home or needs a hobby area are there are various workshops, but equally these could be converted to create further living space if desired, and the bedrooms which are quite small could be re-configured by removing the stud partition walls to create fewer but larger rooms. The house has been well looked after and has double glazed windows set in wood frames retaining the period feel. There is plenty of entertaining space in the four reception areas and the vendors had plans to knock through the kitchen into the snug to create a larger kitchen/living space. Overall this house has plenty of space, is well maintained and offers considerable potential to re-model should a new owner desire.
Outside The garden lies principally to the south and is very private particularly for a house in the centre of a village. It is divided into two principal areas; one is lawned and enclosed by a brick wall and the other is shingled leading onto a raised sandstone terrace in front of two of the workshops. There is plenty of room for parking and the workshops offer potential for various uses. Overall the property is set within 0.075ha (0.19ac).
