This is a is good looking house with rendered elevations under a slated roof. Being south facing it gets lots of sunshine and is light and airy. It also has bags of charm and appeal plus partial double glazing and gas central heating. There are radiators and underfloor heating in the kitchen.
The characteristics which enhance its identity include picture rails, fireplaces and tiled floors throughout most of the ground floor with floorboards in the sitting room and throughout the first floor.
The sitting room has a large bay window and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The living room (or dining room) also has a fireplace and the staircase and a door into the kitchen & breakfast room which is the heart the house.
The kitchen has plenty of painted fitted units, stone worksurfaces, tiled splashbacks, shelves, a double Belfast sink, a dishwasher and a cooker with an extractor above (both “Stoves”). There are also Velux roof lights, plenty of space for a table and chairs and double French doors to a large covered porch area.
Also, off the kitchen is a utility room with a Belfast sink, fitted units, plumbing and space for a washing machine and a door into a bathroom. This has panelling and a double ended bath on ball and claw feet.
On the first floor are two good double bedrooms (with views to Tor Woods) and a shower room with a large walk in tiled shower area. The landing has access to the loft which can provide lots of storage.
A lot of work has gone into the garden which is very pretty and productive. There are lawns, flower beds, shrubs and raised vegetable beds. At the end of the garden is a timber shed and a studio. This studio is well insulated and heated and has served as a home workshop and an occasional bedroom. It’s a big asset.
