Property Description: DESCRIPTION
With over 3500 sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors, this semi-detached character home offers great versatility and flexibility including the possibility of creating an annexe for a family member or holiday lets. In brief the accommodation comprises six bedrooms, three reception rooms, three bathrooms (two en-suite shower rooms), utility room, downstairs WC and double garage. The property is believed by the current owner to date in parts from the 17th century with later additions.
From the open wooden porch with slate roof, the front door opens into an entrance hall with plenty of space for coats and shoes and access to the downstairs WC. The door opens to a large kitchen/diner/family room with French windows opening to the side garden. The fitted kitchen boasts a range of wooden floor and wall mounted cupboards with painted doors and oak work top inset with a Belfast sink. An oil fired Rayburn with ovens and hot plates gives the room a cosy feel, and additional storage is provided by a generous walk-in pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room with cupboards, space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and a boiler providing instant hot water for the kitchen. From the kitchen there is one of the two staircases which access the first floor.
From the kitchen is a cosy snug (currently used as a playroom) with double French windows opening to the rear patio. An electric style woodburner sits in the hearth. From the snug there is access to the inner hallway, which boasts a solid floor of local limestone and granite. A cupboard houses the oil fired boiler and an enclosed porch opens to the rear patio. Doors open to the sitting room, which overlooks the front garden and boasts exposed floorboards and an exposed stone wall with granite lintel over the fireplace, and 3rd reception room currently used as gym/cinema room. A staircase (the second of two) leads to the first floor from the inner hall.
The master bedroom is situated on the first floor featuring a walk-in wardrobe and generous en-suite shower room. Double aspect windows overlook the garden and countryside to the rear. There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor, with the rear bedroom boasting a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and en-suite shower room, and another with substantial wardrobe space. A large landing with exposed beams is currently used as an office area. The family bathroom boasts a bath, walk-in shower, basin and WC. From the large landing is a stair case to a double bedroom with Velux window and a second staircase from the first floor leads to the final double bedroom (used as a music room) which also has a cloakroom WC offering potential to create an en-suite shower room. OUTSIDE
With walled gardens and a gate for vehicular access to the driveway, the property offers enclosed, pet-friendly gardens to the side and front of the property and a high degree of privacy. Enjoying a sunny South facing aspect, to either side of the driveway are lawns with well stocked borders. The driveway allows parking for several vehicles. A path leads round the back of the property to a private paved patio, enjoying the later afternoon and evening sun with access into the house via a rear porch and doors into the snug. SITUATION
