Property SummaryThis beautiful L-shaped Grade II Listed building can trace its history back to the early seventeenth and was formerly the Greyhound Inn, before becoming a private house in 1922. This historic house has a wealth of original features including original timber beams and oak floors and even an ancient wooden arched doorway to the first floor stairs.
The oak lintelled front door opens onto the dining hall with flagstone floor, a reminder of its days as a village inn. To the rear of the dining hall are French windows onto the terrace and garden. The office/ reception room/downstairs bedroom to the right has its own entrance from here or can be accessed through the utility room with en-suite bathroom to the side, making this a self contained private area of the house for guests, or for working from home.
From the dining hall is the primary staircase, the original stone staircase is accessed from the kitchen through a timber archway. The kitchen has an original fireplace and a range of built in worksurfaces, cooker and sink with a good sized pantry off to one side, all with plenty of natural light from the large window. There is space for soft furnishings and the kitchen could either be extended into the living space or kept as a kitchen/family area. An interesting open timber partition separates the kitchen/family room from the spacious and light sitting room. This peaceful and tranquil room is flooded with light and has beautiful views to the rear. The sitting room is fitted with bespoke built in shelving and cupboards and has a fine old stone hearth. Stairs from the kitchen go down to a full height cellar storeroom and workshop with plenty of space for storage. Large sliding doors give access onto the garden.
The ground floor of the property flows well and offers spacious and well proportioned rooms with ample space for either one family or multi generational use.
The wooden staircase from the dining hall leads to the first floor spacious landing with ample space for a sofa or desk. Off the main landing are three good sized bedrooms, with features including exposed timbers, a bathroom and a shower room. A solid wooden staircase leads to the second floor attic space/occasional bedrooms. This room, subject to any necessary consents, can be additional bedrooms, living area or office.
The garden is an absolute delight, a perfect village garden accessed from the rear of the dining hall, the glazed French doors open onto a shady covered flagstone terrace with a wooden pergola, ideal for dining and entertaining outside. A step down the pretty garden continues, with neat paving, mature shrubs and planting with an abundance of colour, plus a well established and productive vegetable garden, and a wooden tool shed. The garden is a perfect sun trap with views of the church to the left and open countryside beyond – a truly lovely place to spend a summer’s afternoon and evening. To the rear of the garden, adjoining the lane, is a parking area with five bar wooden gate.
