Every care has been taken to remain true to the property’s heritage and the quality of presentation is of the highest standard.Engineered-oak flooring and limestone tiles with underfloor heating have been used throughout the downstairs accommodation, while reclaimed pitch-pine doors and traditional timber double-glazed sliding sash windows provide pleasing period charm.The beautifully light drawing room with its double-aspect views and pretty window seat is situated in part of the original house. This cosy room has a multi-fuel stove set within a sandstone fireplace to provide a welcoming focal point.The spacious and well-thought-out breakfasting kitchen is the hub of this home. It is fitted with Shaker-style, cream units beneath solid-wooden worktops to create farmhouse appeal, with a central island unit to provide areas for informal dining, as well as food preparation.
