This beautiful property is enchanting, a one off, just waiting for the next lucky owners to transform it into their forever home. Stepping into a country garden, you take a short walk up some stone steps, looking down onto a lawn, enveloped by trees. The garden has been subtly sectioned off, the top end allocated for a vegetable and herb patch is not far from the external door into the kitchen, perfect for those with a flair for the organic lifestyle.
This home, built in 1905, is full of charisma. Entering this delightful property, passing the charming covered veranda, a generous hallway awaits, this property is beautifully proportioned. To the left is the living room, which is steeped in character, a fresh lick of paint and new flooring would transform this gorgeous space. The dual aspect windows enjoy garden views and allow morning and afternoon sunshine to flood this sumptuous space with light.
Returning to the hallway, straight opposite is the dining room, which the current owners used as an office, what a place for inspiration, with those superb views of the garden and Otley Chevin beyond.
Continuing through the hallway off to the left is the kitchen. Full of charming features, old cupboards, an original brick fireplace, original pully-maid and even a servant’s bell above the door. Up to you whether you re-fit with a contemporary kitchen, although a taste of country living style may suit this property better, the choice is yours!
Next to the kitchen is the pantry, with stone and wooden shelving, a feature very rarely found in modern properties, but certainly a most handy space to store all those extra supplies.
Tucked at the back of the property, on the ground floor, is a generous double bedroom and a bathroom, perfect for later in life or for guests perhaps, this is a versatile home which will suit a range of purchasers.
Moving to the upstairs, quite simply there are three bedrooms, a WC and oodles of eaves storage space. The views from the front bedrooms are simply sublime and there is so much scope to extend, add ensuites and dorma windows to make this space even more WOW, all subject to the necessary permissions, of course!
The exterior of this property is as delightful and charming as its interior. The rear patio is ideally placed off the kitchen, exposed to enjoy the evening sun, perfect for a spot of alfresco dining! The outhouse houses the most amazing old range, what a project to turn this into a unique summer house.
The wrap around gardens really do offer the next owners the chance to create their own taste of the good life, with fruit trees, a veg patch and a greenhouse- you could practically become self-sufficient!
Included in this property are two garages, across the road from the gardens as well as on street parking outside the house. This property is situated in a lovely part of the village, next to the picturesque St John’s Church and within walking distance of the train station and village amenities.
Full of quirks you can’t deny this properties appeal. It has clearly been a very loved family home. The potential calls out the minute you step into the garden. Whether you want to completely modernise or preserve its historic charm, this is a must-see property.
