Description

Dating from 1867 and thought to originally be a workers cottage for Southill House, this very attractive home has many period features including flagstone floors and mullion windows. As with many period properties, there have been more recent additions to provide modern comforts, such as double glazing and a kitchen extension. The charming setting of this house is very alluring with rural views and village life on your doorstep.

Accommodation

An entrance hallway leads to the sitting room which has flagstone floors, high ceilings and a wonderful stone fireplace, thought to be original. An additional exterior door provides access to the north side of the property and another door leads to the kitchen. This is a bright, triple aspect room, with space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer. There is an integrated dishwasher and electric oven and hob. Fully glazed, French doors provide access to the south facing garden. There is plenty of space for a table and chairs in the kitchen. To the left of the entrance hallway is a ground floor bedroom which could easily be used as an additional reception room or study, next to this is a shower room. Both these rooms were used as the old Post Office until around 1950.

Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor where you will find 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. It is worth noting that a couple of the bedrooms have glorious views over the adjoining farmland.

Outside

The house is approached from the south, through a garden gate. A pathway leads around the house to the east. Here there is a sheltered side terrace, attractively adorned by a 25-year-old grapevine.
