Situated in the heart of the village within walking distance to many amenities, this most attractive period property and detached shop date back to the late 1800's. The fact that there is also an annexe as well as a detached two storey former coach-house included within the sale makes this a very interesting and unique property indeed - and certainly one that has the potential to appeal to many different types of buyer.
With its beautiful Georgian frontage, the main house includes well-presented accommodation that has been sympathetically maintained and refurbished over the years to both add and retain a wealth of charming features to include stone fireplaces, solid oak doors with ornate brass fittings, a beautiful period staircase and an antique stained glass roof light. The main house includes four bedrooms, a generous bathroom and two reception rooms, with an attached annexe that is currently being used as an extension to the existing living accommodation, but can also be totally self-contained if required. The kitchen is the only room where the vision to modernise has been left in the hands of the new buyer.
The detached brick built former coach-house with slate roof overlooks the attractive garden and provides endless possibilities and potential. Currently comprising two large rooms over two storeys this former show-room benefits from fireplaces to each floor and could be ideal converted into additional accommodation subject to the appropriate consents, as a workshop, gym or simply for a buyer looking to work from home. With three former stables also attached, full height barn doors fold back to reveal double entrance doors beneath a mature wisteria.
Finally the small detached shop while included within the asking price is classed as number 40, and is on separate title deeds. It has commercial use and as such the sellers fully appreciate that it may or may not be of interest to all potential buyers. They are perfectly happy to retain the shop themselves with documents drawn to restrict usage if this would be preferable and welcome discussions regarding this.
