Restored and converted Grade II Listed former public house at the heart of the village

Believed to date from the late 18th century, Bell House is a handsome double-fronted family home providing almost 2,800 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over three floors together with almost 700 sq. ft. of outbuilding space.

The kitchen offers a range of modern wall and floor units with quartz worktops and splashbacks, modern integrated appliances, a door to the rear terrace and space for a sizeable dining table.

On the first floor the property offers a large principal bedroom with a spacious contemporary en suite shower room, three further well-proportioned bedrooms, one with a feature central exposed brick chimney stack with fireplace, and a large modern family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower. A hidden staircase off the principal bedroom rises to the second floor which features a large open plan attic space, suitable for a variety of uses or for conversion to additional accommodation if required (STP).
