AVAILABLE FOR OCCUPATION EARLY FEB 2021. A Victorian converted stable block forming part of the 'Old Rectory' which was formerly turned in to a residential dwelling in the 1970's. This family home has been more recently modernised and restored by the current owners creating a practical living arrangement albeit retaining many of the properties original period features. These are to include; quarry tiled flooring, exposed floorboards and, wall and ceiling timbers, open fireplaces and stripped pine doors with original brass fittings. The facade of the home is very typical of this era of build and portrays a very cottage style feel. Approach is on to a driveway allowing parking for two vehicles, there is a walled boundary and a landscaped frontage. There is access in to the garage via a timber garage door with additional pedestrian access. To note: all doors and windows have been replaced with a contemporary sage style double glazing throughout, in-keeping with the style of the home. Further double doors form the main entrance in to a reception hall. There is further access in to the garage which is supplied with both power and light, there is eaves storage and space for additional white goods. A door leads in to what is currently being used as a snug, this space could have a number of versatile uses. There are dual aspect windows with pleasant views of the rear gardens and, french doors on to an external patio. A door with staircase leads up to bedroom four. In our opinion this area of the home could easily become completely separate from the main house and be used as an annex or guest accommodation. Additional benefits off this area include a useful shower room which is fitted with white sanitary ware. Steps down off the entrance hall lead in to the impressive kitchen breakfast room. This area features an open fireplace with inset grate with a brick surround, tiled hearth and timber mantle. The kitchen is fitted with stylish cream units which are covered with a granite worktop.
