Step through the wooden front door entering the panelled and beamed entrance hall. To the right is the cloakroom, to the left a panelled drawing room with its striking beams and inglenook fireplace with an open fire. Within the panelling at each end of the room, secret doors hide the staircases to the first floor.
Open the secret door to the right of the inglenook and you will be lead to a double bedroom, set in the eaves of the thatched roof. The bedroom has an abundance of characterful features such as its exposed timber beams and pretty paned window.
A door then leads you to the master bedroom, once again exposed timber beams, fitted paint effect wardrobe and a pretty paned window. A well sized en-suite, features a bath and separate shower. There is the option to knock through to the bedrooms on the otherside.
Within the master bedroom, a staircase leads you down to the back of the drawing room, through that secret door!
.....back to the entrance hallway, steps lead you into the cosy sitting room with its historic inglenook fireplace ideal for those toasty winter nights. A French door draws you into the convervatory, giving access and views of the good sized established garden.
Back through the door to the sitting room, another staircase leading to a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The heart of the home is the country kitchen breakfast room, take time to appreciate the handmade cupboards and feature range. A cupboard beneath the stairs, provides neat storage, as well as a feature corner cupboard, that has seen generations of previous owners. The thick cottage walls truly reveal themselves in the deep window sills, provide an ideal window seat to appreciate the welcoming feel of this beamed room.
In the kitchen there is a door providing access to a large utility/boot room and a further door that takes you into a magnificent room which is currently used as a gym. However, with its wealth of beams and exposed stone walls this good-sized room would make the ideal dining room with its double French doors into the garden for alfresco entertaining.
Within the courtyard, a block of former stables with planning permission to be converted to a double garage with store room and log store. A separate stone/brick built detached outbuilding which could be used as an Office/Studio/Work room, concludes this fabulous period family property.
