An extensive detached 17th century home with self contained annexe, garage/workshop and beautiful grounds of 1 acre (STMS). With six bedrooms and four bathrooms in total, and a generous amount of reception space this characterful property offers plenty of accommodation for the largest of families.
A charming five bedroom detached cottage and self-contained one bedroom annexe cottage set on a plot of approximately one acre (STMS).
The property dates back to the 17th century, a former bakery which was lovingly renovated and refurbished by the current owner in the 1990's. Since then it has been a fantastic much loved family home and until recently a successful bed and breakfast.
The property is highly deceptive; at first glance it almost looks like two smaller cottages but when you walk around the side to the entrance you suddenly realise just how large this extensive residence is. The accommodation is generous; the main cottage offers five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor; the ground floor has four reception rooms, including a sitting room and snug each having their own log burner creating warm cosy spaces for the winter months; there is also a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and downstairs shower room on the ground floor.
Attached to the main house is a self-contained one bedroom annexe cottage complete with kitchen, sitting/dining room, bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
The size of the property isn't the only surprising feature; the grounds are extensive offering approximately one acre (STMS) of lawned gardens, orchards, and vegetable and fruit growing area. The whole garden is a delight, a wash of colour with a huge variety of plant species; the garden really is special and it's clear that it has been much loved over the years. There is also a large gravel driveway leading to a garage/workshop and generous parking area.
