A spacious detached family home offering part character and part modern accommodation extending to about 2,500 sq ft. The original cottage dates from about 1620 and features an inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove together with wall and ceiling timbers. There have been several extensions with the latest being added some 21 years ago, creating a large kitchen/breakfast room and family room. There is also a large hall, sitting room, dining room, cloakroom and utility room on the ground floor. On the first floor there are six bedrooms offering plenty of opportunity for re-altering or home office space. Outside there are large expanses of lawns with shrubs, trees, flowerbeds, a number of vegetable beds, gravel parking and heated swimming pool. The property has been well maintained and looked after, the thatch was replaced in 2015 and a new heat exchanger for the swimming pool was installed about 18 months ago. The lofts are boarded, insulated and have ladders. There is oil fired central heating by radiators and the windows are double glazed. Vacant possession is offered.
