PROPERTY Boasting a wealth of character and features, this period property comes to the market for the first time in 25 years. Offering both spacious accommodation and further potential to enlarge (subject to planning), the property enjoys a rural position and plot extending to 0.56 of an acre in addition to a number of tiled outbuildings, swimming pool and oak car barn. The 18ft x 16ft lounge is arranged around the magnificent fire place, as well as benefiting from double doors leading on the garden. The dining area easily accommodates the large family-size dining room table and chairs, perfect for entertaining. In the colder months the current owners use the snug with large inglenook fire place. This room, like the bedroom is located off of the same hallway, both have been used for bed and breakfast guests in the past, as the rooms benefit from showers.
