A covered front porch with old pamment floor, coat hooks and bench seat provides a sheltered entrance to the property, with the oak front door leading into a light and spacious reception hall with pamment flooring and stairs leading to the first floor. The kitchen breakfast room is of good size and triple aspect with the main large bay window providing the perfect space for dining overlooking the garden, it has a high ceiling with painted beams and separate walk in larder. The kitchen has a simple range of white kitchen units and an oil fired 2 oven Aga. There is also space for an electric oven. A half-glazed stain glass door from the kitchen leads through to the conservatory/garden room which benefits from exterior doors to the west and to the east onto the garden and terrace. Leading off this room is a utility room with lovely old stone sink and space for washing machine and tumble dryer, this room in turn opens to the single garage. Returning to the main reception hall, there are 2 reception rooms either side of the stairs, they are both light filled rooms with lovely large bay windows and one has a door to the garden. A further door from the hall leads to a WC and a small room which houses the boiler and an old security safe, this would work well as a coat/boot storage room or even a small study. Stairs lead up from the hall to the first-floor galleried landing where there are two large double bedrooms overlooking the garden and field views, each room has storage wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The older original part of the house is also accessed from the reception hall or by a separate front door if independent living is desired. The sitting room has a high beamed ceiling with an open fireplace and this room can be incorporated into the main house or used by the annex as it links the two areas. Beyond the sitting room is the entrance hall for the annex with the separate front door. On this side of the house there are double 2 bedrooms and a family bathroom along with a second kitchen. The second kitchen is fitted with a range of kitchen units with an integrated Neff cooker, extractor, electric hob and space for a washing machine or dishwasher. French doors open from this room to the garden and it is possible to provide a separate area of garden to this annex if required. __________ OUTSIDE Approached over a close shingled private driveway flanked by a neighbouring cottage on one side and a lovely brick and flint wall, the property sits in a quiet location well back from the road and has a generous parking area. On the west side of the house there is a small amount of terracing, an oil tank storage area and access to the garage and car port.
