The property Formerly part of the Whitcott Hall estate, The Oak House was converted about 15 years ago and provides attractive and flexible accommodation that might suit a variety of buyers.
The main barn has a great deal of character with exposed timbers and beams throughout. Set off the entrance hall are doors to the kitchen/dining room and also the master bedroom which has an ensuite bathroom.
The kitchen/dining room is in two parts with the dining area separated from the kitchen via an old stable divide. The utility is set off the rear of the kitchen area with side door to the covered area which links to the annex.
To the first floor is a sitting room with a vaulted ceiling and has views over the garden through the large glazed lean to. Also on this floor are two further bedrooms and a bathroom set off the spacious landing.
Oak House Annex Adjacent to The Oak House is a separate annex which has a reception room, WC and Kitchen/ breakfast room on the ground floor with two bedrooms (both with fitted wardrobes) and a bathroom. The current owner has updated and fitted this out with a view to operating it as a holiday let prior to the decision to move so much of the required equipment is in place and can be purchased if required. Alternatively, it makes a great office or accommodation for a dependant relative or could produce income by being sublet.
Outside Accessed off the driveway that leads from the lane to Whitcott Hall, the driveway is gravelled and sweeps up to a large parking and turning area. It is flanked by a lawn and herbaceous borders that sit to the front of the barn. There is a garden store and space (subject to planning consent) for the erection of a carport. There is a terrace that runs to the front and side of the barn and links to the annex. To the rear of the barn is a covered parking space.
