The accommodation

Through the original Georgian front door into the hall with staircase rising to the first floor and door down to the cellar. Straight on into the heart of the home, we enter the large dining room with storage cupboard, butler's pantry and cloaks cupboard. Door left into the downstairs cloakroom and utility room and door leading out into the garden. We will bear to the right and walk into the Victorian drawing room with high ceilings, original plaster frieze moulding and working fireplace. Back into the dining room and right into the kitchen/breakfast room with full height double doors opening into the gardens, gas fired Aga, good range of fitted storage cupboards, inset sink unit, space for appliances and lovely dresser with shelving over. Back to the hall and right into the study with window to the front and plenty of space for desk, shelving and storage. Door from here opens into either a second study or play room. This has a stable door and window to the rear. Door to an enclosed walkway with plenty of room for bins, bikes etc and a separate door out to the front. This is the perfect way of providing access into the garden for either maintenance or BBQ's, furniture etc.


From the hall a low door opens into the access down into the cellar. Wooden staircase descends into a surprisingly large and relatively high cellar with central heating and ventilation. Being a cellar it is not completely dry but would make a great playroom. Door into a small wine cellar and doorway to a second cellar with further storage. Back upstairs, into the hall and left up the staircase onto the first floor landing. Deep storage cupboard and airing cupboard. Turning left we walk into a bathroom with window to the rear and low doorway opening into the master bedroom with window to the rear and built in wardrobes. Back onto the landing and straight on into the library/front landing, original full height 'safe' door opens into a family bathroom with shower. This is located above the adjoining former bridewell and so this area constitutes a flying freehold. Along the landing and into the second double bedroom with window to the front and large built in wardrobes.


Back onto the main landing and left up the staircase, this is where you are aware of the real age of the building with limited head height and some twists and turns. The first of these is a small doorway to the left into a good sized if limited head height bedroom which can easily accommodate a double bed, with loft access and velux window to the rear. Finally into the fourth bedroom with velux window to the rear, window to the side and storage cupboards.


We will step out from the dining room onto a lovely south facing courtyard with lighting, irrigation, flower beds, extensive views and plenty of space for entertaining. The garden backs onto St Mary's Churchyard which provides a further level of privacy and security.
