The Property

This Grade II Listed home dates from the late 18th Century and has a mid 19th Century shop front, the current living room having previously traded as an antique shop. The current owners purchased in 2011 and set about the painstaking task of remodelling and renovating the property, with great attention to detail, into a wonderful family home. The essentially open-plan ground floor has engineered oak flooring and is ideal for family living. The first floor sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, and the enclosed garden, are both delightful features.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a tiled hall with a door to the covered passageway that leads to the garden. There are two doors into the living room. which has space for a study area. There is a handsome fireplace with gas fire and window shutters. Leading off is a useful cloakroom, with the large split-level and dual aspect kitchen/dining room beyond. This has a good range of units concealing the integrated fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and gas boiler. There is a Rangemaster stove with extractor over and granite work surfaces. On the first floor, at the rear, is the dual aspect sitting room, a delightful room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, together with a fireplace with a gas fire. The dual aspect main bedroom has excellent wardrobes, an ornamental Victorian grate and an under-stair cupboard. The family bathroom has a double ended bath and separate shower enclosure. On the second floor, there are two further bedrooms with dormer windows, and a shower room.

Attic storage space (not shown on floor plan)

There is a large boarded attic space over the second floor bedrooms with power and light, perfect for storage, plus a second boarded storage space accessed from the sitting room.


Creating this wonderful rear garden was a labour of love. It is level and enclosed with stone walls, pleached trees and trellis affording excellent privacy. There is a large paved area for al-fresco entertaining, a lawn, well stocked borders and a further paved area at the rear, adjacent to a useful shed. The garden has power and lighting for those barmy summer evenings that end up drifting long into the night.


All mains connected. The gas boiler is in the kitchen. Council Tax Band D - £2,114.59 payable for 2021/22. There is no EPC as the property is Listed.
