Gardens and grounds extending to about 0.82 of an acre (sts). THE PROPERTY Booty Hall is a comfortable traditional family home that benefits from well proportioned rooms throughout and would benefit from some modernisation and updating. The property was Grade II Listed in 1983 due to its appealing retained character features, such as the superb bressumer beamed inglenook fireplace in the sitting room, the Adams style carved surround to the open fire in the elegant dining room and the superb panelled library/snug in the early 18th century wing to the rear. This imposing house which stands well, overlooking the village Green, is believed to originally date back to the 16th century and is thought to have been heightened and enlarged in the late 17th century. It is timber framed and plastered with a red brick gable, beneath a double Roman clay tiled roof and with a Georgian style porch on the front. The accommodation, leads from the porch into the sitting room, which is the hub of the house, with the stairs and all the principal rooms leading off. There are three casement windows affording views to the front over the green and French doors out to the rear garden terrace. The classic dining room benefits from windows to three elevations, moulded panelling to the walls, exposed floorboards and ceiling beam, as well as the ornate carved mantle and surround to the fire place. The library/snug has a delightful feel to the room and benefits from timber panelled walls, bookshelves, drinks cupboard and sash window with window seat and shutters. There is also a fireplace, door out to the rear garden terrace and door out to the garden room. The Aga kitchen/breakfast room also benefits from windows to three elevations and is fitted with modern base and eye level kitchen units, with inset sink, space for dishwasher, six ring hob gas range cooker with extractor fan above for use when the gas fired Aga range cooker, which with the gas fired boiler is set into the fireplace alcove, is turned off. A door leads straight off to a shelved pantry and another to the rear leads to the utility/boot room and back door. Steps lead down to the superb brick lined cellar which isn't tanked but does have a sump well with pump and battery backup that prevents flooding. On the first floor there are three comfortable double bedrooms served by a family bath/shower room, which also has direct access to the master bedroom, and a separate family shower room. Stairs lead up to the second floor landing and give access to the spacious 4th and 5th bedrooms and a second staircase leads down from the larger ''dormitory' bedroom/playroom to bedroom 3 below. OUTSIDE To the front a six-bar gate, with pedestrian gate to the side, gives access to the gravelled drive and parking area, that in turn gives access to the double garage/barn, with concertina doors to the front; the single garage, with coal store and personal door to the rear garden, and the clunch block-built log store. The delightfully spacious front garden is mainly laid to lawn with shrub and flower beds and borders, with brick and flint wall to the front (with former gateway opening onto the Green), paved path to the front door and informal gate access to the fields to the side. The rear garden is wall and fence enclosed with a gate giving access from the front. It is mainly laid to lawn, again with some lovely shrub and flower borders that include a spectacular Magnolia tree. There is a formal pond with water feature fountain and a second ''garden room' to the rear with fruit cage. To the side, the property benefits from a green house, timber built ''studio' shed and a potting shed attached to the garage. In all the gardens and grounds extend to around 0.82 of an acre (sts).
