Full description

Guide Price £550,000 - £600,000. This quirky characterful property retains many period features such as exposed beams and brick work, open fireplaces and bay windows in many of the rooms. The property comes with Solar panels that generate electricity and evacuated tubes which supplements the heating system with hot water. The dual aspect open plan kitchen / diner flows on from the sitting room creating one big open space. The kitchen has plenty of cupboard space, a free standing electric cooker and a storage cupboard below the stairs. To the side of the kitchen, there is a bathroom, a utility room which has a sink and built in storage and there is also a door that leads onto the garden. At one end of the house is a room currently used as a study which has a curved brick fireplace, a bay window and has previously been used as a fifth bedroom. One of the two staircases in the property leads to a double bedroom with a built in wardrobe. At the other end of the house is the living room measuring 29'5 x 16'8 (9.1m x 5m) in size. Brick steps lead down into this impressive room which has a large feature fireplace and a storage cupboard. The light and bright conservatory is accessed via sliding doors and has French doors that open onto the garden. A second set of stairs leads you to the main upstairs part of the house, where there are a further three double bedrooms, one of which has a built in wardrobe. Completing this section of the house is the main bathroom which is partially tiled, has a bath with a separate shower, a basin with storage below and a W.C.
