A splendid former farmhouse sitting in an enviable situation
The Old Priory is an exceptional Grade II listed property oozing with character and having ample space for family living. This historic property, believed to have origins in the 15th century, has been beautifully restored and now offers fabulous accommodation throughout.
The welcoming entrance hall gives access to a well-proportioned sitting room, with original inglenook fireplace fitted and a wood burning stove. Its dual dual aspect creating wonderful views over the garden. The same can be said as of the windows in the dining room - an equally impressive room, with both spaces having stunning exposed wall and ceiling timbers. The house is linked to the barn accommodation by a striking oak framed kitchen/breakfast room, with floor to ceiling glazing to two sides and double doors leading out to the courtyard. This room has modern fitted units, a large island with breakfast bar seating, range cooker and wood burning stove. Beyond is the study, utility room and cloakroom. A door in the study gives access to the remainder of the barn, whilst stairs rise to an en-suite bedroom.
To the first floor of the main house there are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room. The two further bedrooms are serviced by the large family bathroom.
