A delightful and beautifully presented home rich in history
Guide price £700-725k - Originally the much-loved village bakery; this delightful home is steeped in history. It impressively still retains part of the proving oven, as well as exposed timbers nearly everywhere you look! The current homeowners have admirably repaired and lovingly modernised the house throughout, which lead to Period Homes and Interiors requesting to feature this wonderful home in their magazine. There’s curiosities in every room; from the four bedrooms through to the three reception rooms, the character of this house is second to none. This is a home you can create life long memories in.
Open the magnificent oak front door and step into the welcoming quarry-tiled entrance lobby. Pop your shoes off and head through to the dining room. Here there is a beautiful feature cast iron fireplace, Karndean floor and exposed beams. Through here leads to the kitchen/breakfast room. There are lots of Corion worktops, storage and space to cook or stand and watch the chef prepare a feast over the five hob Rangemaster Toledo. Next is the sitting room which is a lovely semi-open plan space with lots of original features beautifully in tact: exposed beams, open fire with Ingelnook surround, as well as the original proving oven of the bakery. Step up to the cosy snug which is ideal to get stuck into a book, or catch up on your series on a rainy evening. If it’s sunny you can throw open the French doors and head out to the patio and decking area to dine al fresco. Back inside there’s a spacious inner lobby with a cloakroom and steps down to the lower ground utility room - handy!
Upstairs you find four spacious bedrooms over two floors. The master bedrooms benefits from fitted wardrobes so storing lots of clothes and shoes is not a problem! There’s also an admirable en-suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom as well as the family bathroom. On the top floor, there are two warm double bedrooms, one which is open to the eaves with exposed timber framing and beams - which we love!
