Ye Old Steppes

The glass paneled door opens into the front of the property of which the current vendors are using as a shop. There are two large bay windows overlooking the front and allowing natural light to flood through. The older part of the property was a Rectory around 500 years ago and boasts fantastic original timbers and fireplace inset with a woodburning stove. There are wooden floorboards and ample space to utilise. If desired the room could be your living space but the vendors have enjoyed running this as a tea room and as it is now, a village shop. An opening which would have originally been a door leads to another room where there is tiled flooring, doors to the front and rear and a cloakroom fitted with a WC and basin.

The living room was an addition in the Georgian era and has an original fireplace and side aspect, full sash bay window. Along the hallway is the kitchen which has a lovely heart of the home feel fitted with wall and base units, a Rangemaster gas cooker and space for a breakfast table and chairs. There is a stainless steel sink and stable door to the side. Steps lead up to the back kitchen which has additional base units, space for a fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a stable door to the rear.

Taking the staircase to the first floor, the original character features and charm continue with wooden floorboards throughout. The landing has two windows to the side, open exposed timbers and space for decorative furniture. The sitting room has a fabulous window which is of historic significance overlooking the front, down Bridge Street and the countryside beyond. There is a vaulted ceiling, beautiful exposed timbers and fireplace inset with a gas fire.

There are four bedrooms to the main dwelling, all of which are double sized. Bedroom one, two and four all have windows to the side aspect. Bedroom three is currently being used as a study and I understand why, with views over Bridge Street and the countryside beyond, it s a welcome distraction from being on the computer and stuck behind a desk.

The Old Bakehouse

The oak panelled door with glass window opens into The Old Bake House and you immediately notice the original bread ovens of which there are two above the Rangemaster cooker, with five ring gas hob. Both bread ovens open with the top oven having a light in. The Old Bakehouse is open plan with a kitchen, dining room and living room and is beautiful decorated and sympathetically furnished. The kitchen area is fitted with bespoke wall and base units with oak worktops. There is an integrated washing machine, Smeg fridge freezer and Butler sink with stainless steel taps. The living area has a cosy feel with a woodburning stove as a focal point and two windows over looking the garden. There is a wall mounted television, two comfortable sofas and a dining table with four chairs. The ground floor bedroom is a double with a window and Velux sky light. The en-suite is beautifully fitted with a cast iron roll top bath, WC, basin and shower cubicle.

Taking the oak staircase. which was fitted by Browns, a local renowned carpenter, is the mezzanine floor. This bedroom has a super king sized bed and an en-suite which is fitted with a WC, basin and double shower cubicle.

This property has its own entrance and is accessed from the side through a porch. This is great when coming back from a good walk with space for muddy boots, coats and dog leads.
