THE PROPERTY Weaver House is believed to date back to the 15th century being a timber framed and plastered property over three storeys, with the frame exposed and being jettied to the front and side elevations, with a gabled wing to the rear, all under a plain tiled roof. The property is Grade II listed with its neighbour, as it was originally one home that has been split, possibly in the 16th century, creating the flying freehold section over the sitting room/snug. This comfortable home also benefits from significant and impressive internal character features with specific note to the Tudor (believed between 1512 and 1567) wall inscriptions in the drawing room, the exposed timbers and particularly the dragon beam, several planked doors, exposed boot worn brick floors and the open inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. The accommodation in brief comprises a front door with window light above, leading into the brick floored hall with arched alcove and cloaks hanging space. A latch door opens to the sitting room/snug which is a wonderfully cozy room with inglenook fireplace with inset log-burning stove, exposed wall, ceiling timbers and brick floor with secondary glazed window to the front and a wide latch door opening to the stairwell. A charming central hall affords cupboard and understairs storage space and a door leads through to the drawing room which is double aspect, front and side, and has an old internal mullioned window to the drawing room. The wall inscriptions and dragon beam being of particular note in this spacious reception room. The dining room boasts a wealth of exposed heavy timber framework, has a secondary glazed window to the side and doors to the kitchen and the shower room/cloakroom. The kitchen, which has a studded door leading out to the charming rear cottage garden, is bespoke fitted with timber units, hardwood worksurfaces, a ceramic sink unit, a gas range style cooker with gas hob and electric ovens, extractor hood above and a curtained alcove utility area with space and plumbing for white goods and further worksurface and shelving. The original old stairs wind up to the first-floor landing off which there are two well-presented double bedrooms that are further served on this floor by the family shower room which could be altered to a bathroom by swapping the double sized shower cubicle for a bath unit. Original stairs again lead up to the second storey, opening to a well-presented landing sitting area through which there is access to the 3rd bedroom, which benefits from a dormer window to the front and an old, mullioned window to the side affording a good street scene view to the centre of this lovely village.
