6 Bedroom Detached House Sold
Sowerbys are proud to present an imposing and substantial Grade II listed family house, with attractive thatched roof. The home, previously The Three Horsheshoes Pub, was subject to an extensive restoration overseen by the current vendors being completed in 2016, paying great attention to detail in preserving the integral character of the buildings whilst fusing it with the needs of modern living. The accommodation is spacious and extremely versatile, with the added benefit of a self-contained annexe. Until recently, the vendors have run the property as a holiday let but it could easily revert to a single residential dwelling.
The most frequently used access from the front of the home is through the door to the side of the main house. The door opens onto an entrance hall, off which is a bedroom suite, the hall leads to a garden room featuring bi-folding doors that lead to the terrace and garden. The vaulted kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the home and a superb feature of the house, having been comprehensively fitted with a range of shaker style units beneath wooden worksurfaces and space for appliances. There are also beautiful exposed timbers and brickwork.
To the front of the principal section of the house are two large interconnecting reception rooms, complete with exposed beams and feature fireplaces. Leading off the sitting room is a snug and an office with an en-suite bathroom that could be made into a gym or additional bedroom. There is also a WC and a utility room.
The versatility of the home has been exploited by siting the principal bedroom suite on the ground floor, comprising a stunning vaulted bedroom with exposed brick, a dressing room, mezzanine study and en-suite, this room could easily be reconfigured for other uses. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. A substantial attic is accessed from the largest of these first floor rooms.
The annexe is self-contained and comprises a bedroom, shower room and an open-plan reception room/kitchen. Attached to the annexe is a single garage behind wooden doors . A covered walk way links with the garden which is laid principally to lawn, bordered by mature hedging. There is also a large terrace adjacent to the house for alfresco dining. To the rear of the property is a further paved terrace. Completing the home there is a gravelled parking area to the front, allowing parking for several cars.
