Our Summary

  • There is scope for future renovation and its sizeable footprint and high ceiling offer considerable potential to include a new layout and contemporary aesthetic
  • The shape and size of this room present opportunities for future development and given the scale of the house and accommodation, there is potential to incorporate additional cloakrooms and en-suite facilities elsewhere in the house
  • With deeply coombed ceilings and fantastic views over the surrounding countryside, these two rooms are delightful and given their generous proportions and charming character, they offer considerable potential as bedrooms or workspaces for home working or crafts
  • It is a beautiful historic and solid property that, for someone with energy, vision and means to invest, offers the potential of an exceptional family residence that develops with them long into the future and perhaps even as a place to run their home-based business
  • Location and character alone make this an attractive property but with its superb energy and environmental ratings and added scope for upgrading and modernisation, this property should be viewed early to avoid disappointment
