Main House (1926)
The house itself was built in 1926 and has managed to keep a lot of its charming character despite all of the renovations. Upon entering from the front, you will notice the quarry tile flooring in the entrance porch that you will again see later in the commercial kitchen. Progressing into a doglegged reception hallway, the original block pine flooring is impressively still in place and flows into two of the spacious reception rooms.
First room on the left is the commercial kitchen. Made up with a variety of fitted units to base and eye level and finished with complimentary work surfaces. Light enters through 3 separate windows, a side entrance door and a set of French doors that open up onto the rear patio.
Back through the hallway and opposite the kitchen door is the entrance to the first reception room. The centre piece of the house features a brilliant front facing bay window and a decorative open fireplace.
Carrying on through the hallway, you will pass the downstairs w/c, staircase to the first floor, door that opens up to the rear patio and arrive at the entrance to the second reception room. The second reception room is the largest room of the original house and is currently used a guest dining room. There is a large south facing window to the front elevation and two windows either side of a patio door that leads into the private garden at the side of the house. Opposite the patio door is a feature fireplace and if that’s not enough, there are a two radiators to assist heating up the room.
Onto the first floor of the house. The landing presents access to all four of the double bedrooms on this floor. Each of the spacious guestrooms have been renovated to have their own individual en-suite bathroom. Every guestroom and en-suite has been decorated differently, offering something for everyone. The central bedroom which was once the original master, benefits from having a large bay window that matches the one found downstairs in the lounge. All of the en-suite bathrooms are made up of shower, hand wash basin and w/c, except for where the family bathroom once was, where there is a shower over bath.
Access to the loft conversion can be found behind a lockable door on the landing of the first floor. A staircase will lead you up to the three additional rooms that are located on the second floor of the property. Guestroom 5 benefits from having another room as well as an en-suite attached to it. This room could be utilised as a dressing room, study, or even another bedroom. The en-suite bathroom comprises of shower, hand wash basin and w/c. All the rooms on this level benefit from having storage cupboards, lighting and fitted skylights.
Living Annex (2005)
In 2005, the house was extended at the rear and has become the living quarters for the vendors to separate themselves from work at the bed and breakfast. However, this isn’t just your everyday extension. This annex is made up of 2 double bedrooms, an immaculate Jack and Jill style bathroom, desirable kitchen and one of the most impressive living/dining rooms we have ever seen. Featuring high vaulted ceilings with skylights throughout and solid oak doors and flooring, this part of the house is really something. The kitchen is made up of a range of base units with stunning granite work surfaces to finish. Two windows to the side elevation allow light into the room and provide views of the landscaped garden. Slate floor tiles finish the room off nicely and underfloor heating is in place (underfloor heating throughout the whole of the annex).
After walking through the kitchen, you will enter a hallway that provides access to both of the bedrooms, the bathroom and opens up into the magnificent living/dining space. This room looks really impressive as you first enter. Light rushes in through not one, but two sets of French doors on the south side of the room lighting up the huge amount of space and vaulted beadboard style ceiling. A feature open fireplace is just around the corner where more light enters through the fitted skylight.
Back through the hallway, two double bedrooms and a modern tiled 4-piece bathroom with heated towel rail finishes off the living annex.
Detached Annex (2011)
Further development took place in 2011 when another annex was added to the plot. Brilliantly designed away from the house, 4 luxury guestrooms with modern en-suite bathrooms were constructed to accommodate additional guests. Each suite style room is open plan and has enough room for a double bed with further living and dining space. The en-suite bathrooms are immaculately finished with marble effect multipannel walls and white tiled flooring. Bathrooms comprise of wash hand basin, w/c, heated towel rails and either a shower or shower over bath (2 of each). Each of the 4 guestrooms in the annex have their own individual access from outside and are heated by two separate central heating systems.
Mature trees and shrubs privatise the front gardens and driveway nicely. A mixture of conifer, oak, English pine and fruit trees surround the gardens with rhododendrons adding colour in the summer months. Following the driveway down from the road, it splits and folks off in front of the house and down the left side towards to large workshop/garage where it becomes block paved. At the front of the property, there is an elevated lawn which contains a 50 square foot Huxley putting green, vegetable beds and two greenhouses.
Running along the right of the house and in front of the living annex is a hidden landscaped garden. Decorative plants and garden ornaments fill an array of flowerbeds and a patio area runs alongside the building.
