THE PROPERTY The Old House is a spacious and superbly characterful, well presented and maintained period property, that dates back to the Tudor era with an impressive heavy timber frame. To the rear is a mid-19th century 2 storey brick and flint range that was added to effectively form a double house and hence affords the benefit of large, well proportioned rooms to both the ground and first floors. A porch gives access to the outstanding main reception/dining hall with exposed timbers to the high ceiling and walls, a magnificent bressumer beamed inglenook fireplace with inset log burning stove, an Edwardian mullion and transom and a casement window to the front elevation. The sitting room and snug are divided by open studwork with a fireplace to the front room and a coal effect gas fire to the rear room. There are internal windows and French doors to the conservatory. The conservatory benefits from under floor heating and opens to the rear garden. There is a spacious family room with built-in cupboards and shelves and a large kitchen/breakfast room with tiled flooring and a range of good quality recently fitted units with granite work surfaces, ceramic sink, electric range cooker with extractor hood above and a central island with granite work surface. There is also a door to the garden. Stairs lead to the first floor where a spacious landing running almost the length of the property leads to the master bedroom with windows to the front and side, built-in wardrobe and an en-suite bath/shower room with roll top claw foot bath, separate shower cubicle, hand wash basin, wc and linen cupboard. There are four further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate wc. OUTSIDE The property is approached across a small area of shared drive, leading to the private gated access to the property. There is parking to the front of the house a modern detached double garage with roofed store area to the rear. The front garden is principally laid to lawn and is wall and fence enclosed with several mature trees screening the property from the front giving it privacy from Livermere Road. The garden continues around the side of the house to the rear with further lawn, shrub and flower borders, terrace and towards the rear a versatile range of brick and flint outbuildings, below a clay pantiled roof, that could be further utilised subject to the necessary consent as further accommodation. To the rear of these outbuildings there is further garden space and a summer house.
