Ideally located within a comfortable walking distance of the village Centre, this attractive looking period house offers an interesting internal layout with plenty of living space and 4 very good size bedrooms. There is character on each floor with 9ft ceiling heights to the hall and principle receptions, covings, centre roses, high skirting and exposed wood finishes including floorboards and doors. From the Reception hall access is gained to a spacious bay fronted sitting room and also the living dining room where there is a live fireplace. The kitchen has been opened up with roof style windows providing much natural light and throughout the house there is the benefit of (where specified) replacement wooden double glazed sash windows which retain the original appearance of the property. The first floor features 3 good bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst the converted loft has a "roomy master bedroom" and separate shower room wc.
