You enter the property through the wooden door into the entrance hallway with slate flooring. You can't fail to notice the impressive original staircase leading to the first floor as well as the original doors, with the kitchen/dining room on your left. This sizeable room is fitted with wooden freestanding units set on a tiled floor, with plenty of space for a family farmhouse style dining table. A real feature of the room is the "Aga" which provides hot water, central heating and residual heat; the perfect place to take a moment on a cold day with a warming cuppa. A door takes you into a pantry with ample space for storing fresh produce. Definitely worth mentioning is the large granite trough which is kept cool by the emerging spring that runs under the corner of the property and out through the garden; not your average way to keep beverages cool!

A further door from the kitchen takes you to a utility space and back door to the beautiful garden. From the entrance hall, to your right, is the original living room which is a generous room with slate floor. Light pours through a large window with window seat and also through the ornate mullion window. The wooden doors and beams remind you of the age of the property. The main feature of the room is the open fireplace which makes it feel as though you're in a National Trust property with its ornate carving, granite lintel and bread oven to the side, it really does create a sense of grandeur as well as providing extra heat in the depths of winter.

A door then takes you to the more "recent" extension, thought to have been added in the 1800's. Immediately you can see the updated architecture with the Victorian fireplace and wooden doors in this second reception room which could be used in a variety of ways. Behind one of the original doors is a store cupboard whilst behind another is a shower room with WC and basin. Behind the final door is a second staircase to the first floor.
Using the second staircase, you arrive at the first floor on a bright landing space with exposed stonework. There’s an additional fireplace with further engravings on the granite lintel and a beautiful French woodburning stove as well as stairs to the loft room. The family bathroom has a tiled floor and Portuguese tiles provide the splashbacks around the basin and bath with shower over. Bedrooms two and three are both generous double rooms with exposed wooden floorboards throughout the first floor. The master bedroom is also a generous room with windows to two aspects, one large window and a window seat overlooking the garden. The overriding feature of this room though is the vaulted ceiling with exposed beams.
To the side of the property is a single garage with power connected so could be used as a workshop for handy types. There's a summer room at the back which overlooks the rear garden. The well maintained garden is a good size and has been cleverly landscaped with a range of plants providing distinct areas. From the kitchen there is a kitchen garden where you can satisfy your green fingered urges whilst living as sustainably as possible. There are a couple of patio areas enabling you to choose between sunshine or shade. The mature trees, shrubs and flowers have created a private, charming and beautiful place to unwind. The aforementioned spring trickles down to one side of your garden which allows wildlife to flourish and provides somewhere for a pet to cool off on hot summer days!
