The property itself is a true ‘tardis` of a home, the front door opens onto the raised entry way, stepping down you enter the sitting room where the sense of charm and history wash over you as you take in your surroundings with clever little ‘details` included in the renovation. From the sitting room, through the exposed beam wall, you can glimpse the spacious shaker style kitchen with stunning heritage green cupboards, built in oven and hob and spacious storage/boiler cupboard. There is also a w.c. tucked away. On the opposing side of the fireplace boasting log burning stove, is the good sized dining room with a plethora of built in shelving.
