The pathway (currently bordered by cowslips and spring flowers) leads to the oak front door. You open the door into a large and inviting, grand hallway with stairs leading to the first floor. Directly in front of you, there is a guest cloakroom, and to the right a room with doors that open onto a patio. This room could be used as either a snug or a formal dining room and situates a further window with a view to the front aspect. The wood-burning stove offers a focal point, along with a unique serving hatch into the kitchen. The space in the kitchen allows for a large 8 seater table and chairs. In need of modernisation, this large kitchen has a window to rear aspect and has a range of floor and wall units as well as a walk-in-pantry. The far wall is timber clad and there is a further window overlooking the rear patio and open countryside beyond. Steps up from the kitchen lead to an inner lobby and further toilet, wood store and utility room, with door leading to the patio and garden. Back to the entrance hall and turn right into the large and airy drawing room, with off centre fireplace and a bar hidden behind a large painting. The windows to front aspect are large and offer a profusion of light. There is a further room located off the drawing room which has been used as a study. This wonderful room is adorned with bookcases and offers views from all aspects. There is an alternative staircase leading from this room to the first floor. The main staircase (located in the hallway), leads to a generous landing with double aspect views. This generous landing would create a wonderful peaceful reading room. The Master suite is located on the right, and offers a large double bedroom, with built in storage cupboards, and a further door to a dressing room.
The dressing room has an airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder, with space to create wardrobes etc. There is a doorway leading to an inner hallway with a cast iron fireplace and a door to an en-suite bathroom. The inner hallway could become a wonderful back in time' ladies sitting room. The door from this inner sitting room leads you to the another staircase, and two further rooms - one double bedroom with vanity unit, and the second room used to be a former artists' studio of the late owner. A magnificent vaulted ceiling room, which would convert into either a wonderful home office or remain as a studio due to the large windows providing ever changing light.
A further wing is located off the main landing to the left and this provides two further double bedrooms and a family shower room. The walk-in-shower having not long ago been installed. The two bedrooms are both double aspect. The hallway connecting these rooms has a large walk-in-cupboard housing another hot water cylinder. This is a house of dreams and with love and attention it will once again be restored to its former glory .Garden
