Upon entering the property through the vestibule, you are met with a large open hallway, from which all other rooms lead, which showcases the original parquet flooring, beams, 8ft high ceilings and an impressive staircase.
Leading off from the hallway, you have the dining room. This is a lovely space to enjoy a family meal and has dual aspect, leadlight windows and faux wooden beam.
To the rear of the staircase, is a brick and timber-built sunroom with double doors leading to the garden.
The Drawing room has a host of original features which include; parquet flooring, dual aspect leadlight windows, beautiful beams and a cosy fireplace. Leading off of this is the reception room, this is an extraordinary space that is perfect for entertaining. Built in 1925, this space has an abundance of natural light due to the large bay window, with a window seat as well as a door leading to the rear garden and three other windows. This room also has a stunning feature fireplace with multi- fuel cast iron stove and built-in storage on either side.
The kitchen/ breakfast room completes this ground floor space and has a range of base and wall units, fully working Aga and space for a dining table for informal meals. There are dual aspect windows that overlook the driveway and manicured garden. Leading off the kitchen is the scullery, this formerly held a secondary staircase to the first floor, but has since been removed and now houses a ground floor w/c and pantry with ample storage space, a Belfast sink and door leading to the garden and garage.
As you ascend the staircase to the first floor, you are met with a large picture window that overlooks fields and farmland to the rear of the home. The galleried landing is a large space and would be a lovely spot to relax in the evenings and leads you to the bedrooms and family bathroom.
Bedroom one is a tranquil space with dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and farmland to the rear and also the driveway. Bedroom two has an en-suite shower room with a round picture window and also has views over the farmland and to the side portion of the garden.
The remainder of the bedrooms are on the other side of the home and each of them has views overlooking the manicured garden at the front of the property. The family bathroom and w/c complete this space.
Outside as you enter the grounds you are met with a sweeping gravel driveway with a range of mature shrubs and trees guiding you in. The garden is very well maintained with a large vegetable patch to the side, raised beds to the rear and a beautiful lawn at the front. Mature hedgerows surround the property, allowing privacy whilst still allowing plenty of light to enter the home. There is a selection of outbuildings including a large storage shed, a greenhouse and two single car garage’s.
