A delightful Grade II listed building with classic rustic charm, offering a variety of original features such as exposed timber beams, panelling and flagstone floors. The property has been tastefully decorated throughout, an elegant combination of neutral wallpapers and sympathetic paint colours that highlight the original architecture.
To the ground floor, the entrance and reception hall provide a welcoming feel, and lead to a number of reception rooms. Both the formal dining room and sitting rooms have a cosy look that is created by the exposed timber beams that cross both the walls and ceilings and open fire places. The expansive open plan Mark Wilkinson kitchen/breakfast room has been presented in a modern style. The bespoke fitted kitchen cabinets have Granite worktops and there is a central island, a range cooker, integrated appliances and sandstone flooring throughout. The impressive glass topped Orangery has 360 degree views, with doors leading directly into the garden, and is a wonderful space in which to dine and entertain whilst offering an abundance of natural light during the day. A utility and shower room complete the ground floor.
Upstairs is a generously sized, triple aspect master suite with vast integrated storage and elegantly styled en suite bathroom. The characterful exposed timber beams extend to the upstairs décor, where they feature in many of the bedrooms, as does an original fireplace in one of the double bedrooms. The family bathroom serves the remaining four bedrooms.
