The main house was originally home for the village Blacksmith and was constructed in approx.1620, it is timber framed, with brick and recently replaced thatch (2018). It is accessed by a private driveway, right opposite the village pub and although in the heart of the village, is very secluded and private, largely due to the extensive grounds.
Old Lane Cottage was extended in the 1980’s and the kitchen/diner was replaced and remodelled in 2015 with the addition of wooden bi fold doors onto the garden. On entering the property, via the thatched canopy porch, you enter the entrance hall that is filled with light thanks to a mezzanine gallery. The dining room has a log burner and oak flooring and access to reception 3 which is currently used as a home office. The sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven and a charming bay window overlooking the front of the property with oak flooring. The recent kitchen extension has been superbly integrated to the original property with bespoke units and slate tiles with underfloor heating and wooden bi-fold doors onto the garden as well as a breakfast bar, integrated appliances, and utility room.
Upstairs, the property has four double bedrooms, 3 of which have fitted wardrobes. In addition, there is a gallery/chill out area, with a separate WC and shower—also home to a Victorian fireplace! In addition, is a large family bathroom with a white suite. There is an abundance of vaulted beamed ceilings throughout the property as well as feature fireplaces, and the original well to the front of the property.
The gardens are an absolute delight, with mature plantings and trees throughout, and a completely private. The annexe is in the grounds and has been a fruitful Air BnB let for the current owners.
