I am pleased to offer for sale this delightful stone-built renovation which was completed in 2005 and had an extension added in 2008. Teeming with character, it should appeal to admirers of traditional homes of a bygone era with exposed stone walls and beams. It offers a lounge and a separate dining room which is open onto the well-equipped kitchen with an electric Aga cooker. The front facade overlooks well-maintained gardens and has an aspect aligned slightly east of south bringing plenty of natural light into the property in fine weather. The property has two staircases to separate first-floor bedroom accommodation areas and therefore lends itself to offering Bed and Breakfast or indeed to give visiting family members a level of autonomy. A ground floor room could be adapted to provide a further bedroom as an additional option on the B & B theme and there is also a large, converted loft which could equally be used as a bedroom.
This delightful house has been carefully maintained and may well seduce you. A visit is highly recommended!
Lounge (approx 21.6m²): attractively presented with exposed beams, one wall in exposed stone and another in a blend of exposed stone and floral wallpaper, a carpet to the floor, an electric fire and decoration in pastel shades. A double door opens gives access to the outside terrace. A staircase in wood leads from the lounge to upstairs accommodation described a little later below.
Kitchen / Dining Room (approx 37.5m²): the property’s entrance door opens into a small porch and a further door opens into this good size, character-laden room with its exposed beams and one wall in exposed stone. The kitchen was installed in 2021 and hence features modern units. It features an electric Aga cooker with its three ovens, an induction hob with three hobs and two electric ovens (one incorporating a grill).

To the left of the utility area is a Wc with a wash basin which has a second door opening into a Further Room (approx 14.5m²) with a staircase leading to a mezzanine. This could be adapted to serve as a second lounge, a children’s play room, a study or another bedroom etc.
