As you enter into the property through the front door you are welcomed into a beautiful, architecturally pleasing entrance hall with curved walls and arched ceilings.

To one side of the entrance hall, a door leads you into the dining room, a great room for entertaining famly and frends which includes a feature fireplace with a wood burner and curved recess either side is a real focal point. From the spacious entrance hall the main staircase turns and rises to the first floor. The living room is, again, a beautiful place to be, with a large feature fireplace encompassing a wood burner with a back boiler which works in conjunction with an oil fired boiler and a historic range in one corner which harps back to former times but is now a decorative feature. A sash window overlooks the front and allows the natural sunlight to pour in. A further, smaller room is found which is currently utilised as a home office.

The kitchen epitomises the ‘country kitchen’ style with solid wooden work tops and cream units, an inset Belfast sink is a real treat, whilst incorporating modern conveniences such as double electric ovens, electric hob, dishwasher and two fridges. There is a space for a breakfast table and a further wood burner, a great place to enjoy a cosy, warming tea after a cold winter's day. Beyond the kitchen a sizeable utility room wth further units and work top with space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer and somewhere for your boots and coats! A storm porch gives you access to a private courtyard which allows you to enjoy the morning sunshine whilst enjoying a bite to eat. A further door from the kitchen takes you into a small hallway with a stable door to the rear courtyard area, a cloakroom WC which houses the "Worcester" oil fired boiler and also to a striking original wooden door with a granite archway which opens to the second staircase to the first floor.
As you rise the original main staircase, you are bathed in natural light from a tall window on the half landing allowing the staircase and landing to feel bright and spacious. The landing itself is grand in size with the high ceiling and coving continuing. Three bedrooms overlook the front garden; two of which are double rooms with generous proportions with the master bedroom benefitting from a well presented en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is a large single room, perfect for a child or guest room. The family bathroom is of sizeable proportions with a power shower with a rain effect attachment, roll top bath, WC and basin. From the landing an airing cupboard which houses the hot water cylinder and central heating controls allows for all your linen to be kept warm.
A door takes you to a small landing from the secondary staircase where a further double bedroom is found. These secondary stairs then take you up into the loft which has been converted. This area is currently utilised as a holiday let with a kitchenette area including integral fridge and breakfast bar for guests. The beautifully presented bathroom comprises of a shower, WC and basin. The bedroom is a charming double room with vaulted ceiling and exposed A-frames.
The property is blessed with many features that are desirable. The garden itself is sizeable and is mostly laid to lawn with a south westerly aspect so you can relax in the sunshine or entertain family and friends. A number of apple trees provide an abundant supply of fruit to cook up in the charming kitchen. The garden is, to a degree, a blank canvas with plenty of space for your green fingered imagination to run wild!
Beyond the garden a solid wooden barn can be found, currently utilised with one stable box and a larger workshop with power connected, giving plenty of opportunity to return it into further boxes for horses. The land is split into three separate paddocks, all of which have a water supply. The largest amounts to approximately 4 acres, the second paddock is approximately 2 acres and both are gently sloping and free draining. The final paddock is approximately 1 acre in size and slopes down towards a brook.
Two stone barns which have electricity already connected have planning permission for conversion into two separate one bedroom annexes. Building work has started on both by putting a portion of the drains in which means the permissions have ‘started’ and are now everlasting.
To the rear of the main house a small single storey outbuilding with electricity again connected.
The water supply to the house and water troughs is by way of a bore hole whilst mains water does come to the property and supplies an outside tap currently.
