Originally forming part of a farm steading built in the 1850’s, a modern sympathetic conversion in the early 2000’s has created a beautiful country home with the perfect blend of period character and charm of a bygone age along with contemporary twenty-first century living and design. The property is approached along a hedge-lined lane and then to a private parking area in-front of the house. A garden gate opens onto a stone path that meanders through the pretty garden and up to a timber bridge, providing access to the solid timber door. The front door opens into a welcoming vestibule with natural coir matting and a door leads off the vestibule into a laundry room, ideal for storing coats and boots. The laundry is fitted with a range of floor and wall-mounted units with counters over and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer. A part-glazed door opens into a large galleried hall which looks down into the impressive vaulted sitting room. The hall currently accommodates a piano and could easily accommodate a sitting area, a study desk or reading nook. The study/Bed 5 has a window overlooking the front garden and there are two further double bedrooms on this floor, both with fitted wardrobes. Serving the two bedrooms is a family bathroom with ceramic tiled floor and comprising a bathtub, separate shower, WC, floating timber vanity and a wall-mounted chrome towel heater. Stairs descend from the hall to the lower ground floor and into the generous sitting room, with an impressive vaulted ceiling with original exposed timber beams. The focal point of the room is a multi-fuel stove sitting on a slate hearth with ceramic tiled back, perfect for cosy winter evenings. The kitchen-dining room is another generous space and the real hub of this family home. With a window providing views over the front garden, the kitchen has an exposed timber floor and is fitted with a bespoke range of floor and wall mounted units with counters over and a Belfast sink. There is space for a range cooker beneath a fitted extractor hood, plumbing for a dishwasher and space for an American style fridge-freezer. A large fitted cupboard also provides extra storage. Accessed via the sitting room is the sun room, another generous reception with French doors leading onto the rear patio. Off a rear hall is the master bedroom, with a window to the rear and fitted his and hers wardrobes. The master is served by a contemporary shower room with ceramic tiled floor and part tiled walls.
