About the property

A most attractive, spacious period cottage originally constructed around 1760 with numerous improvements over many years, now providing a spacious characterful home. More recently a 2 bedroom timber clad mobile home and timber workshop has been added.
Very adaptable layout which could work very well as a Bed & Breakfast business as well as family home. An additional large outbuilding currently utilized as garage also provides potential for working from home/workshop/conversion.

Situated a short distance from the village, just above Penn Farm it is approached directly from the A35 onto a small side road beside it.
Approached through a gate with a small flight of stone steps from the parking area, a pathway leads to the central gabled porch and front door. A small inner hall divides off left and right into two spacious reception rooms - the living room and dining room. Both these rooms face the front and both have a feature inglenook fireplace with exposed beam and woodburning stove. The Dining room has flagstone floors whilst the living room has polished stripped wood flooring. From the Living room a latch door leads into a very pretty vaulted ceiling double bedroom with an ensuite shower and glazed door out to the garden. Ceiling skylight and wood flooring.
Behind the Dining Room there is a long galley kitchen with bespoke solid wooden fitted units, Rangemaster range cooker, integrated dishwasher, butler sink with long rear facing window above. Space for tall fridge freezer.Skylight above and flagstone floors. Adjacent Utility room with space for washing machine & drier above plus door to rear external passageway. Latch door to further single bedroom with cupboard and  small ensuite WC.
On the first floor the stairs divide and rise left and right to two really spacious double bedrooms. Stylish family bathroom with dark tiles and white suite.
Outside adjacent to the lane is a large outhouse currently a garage, attached to the rear with neighbouring house. This building would lend itself well to possible conversion STPP (lapsed permissions) as a home office/holiday let/studio.
The current owners have added a two bed timber clad mobile home offers extra living space or income. This lodge-style chalet has a small double, shower room with WC , a small single plus a Kitchen/living area. Recently added long timber workshop with  a further spacious outhouse to the far corner boundary.
The garden is an irregular long shape to the side of the property with lawns and fishpond with raised rear boundary beds. There are several stone paved and gravelled patios nearer the house. Oil tank. Exterior encased boiler. Private water pumped and certified as good quality WDDC.  Shared septic tank  with neighbour.
