Part of an historic 1800s property, this large two bedroom semi detached character home includes an adjacent large workshop/garage, formerly a blacksmiths and originally the elementary dame school for the area.  Benefits include its convenient location, large rear 100ft garden plus the opportunity to update, convert and/or extend (stpp)

Set back from the road, it is believed the original property was built during the reign of George III either as one house or a pair of cottages.

Excitingly, both semis are being offered for sale individually and this, the right hand half is the more spacious of the two. Character features abound; For example, in the living room and of particular note, the large floor to ceiling original brick fireplace houses a multi-fuel log burner installed by the current owners.

Gas CH runs throughout the property

The living room continues through to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation.

A spacious dining room continues through to the large farmhouse style kitchen.  Limestone floored, a good range of cupboards are complimented with twin Belfast sinks plus space for appliances including cooker, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and washing machine.

A conservatory leads off the kitchen giving access to the rear garden with its apple and pear trees plus the large garage/workshop

Upstairs the two bedrooms cover the entire first floor to both the front and rear.  The master bedroom retains a decorative feature fireplace and the views from its window are wonderful across the fields to the old Benedictine abbey of St Michaels

The downstairs bathroom with its underfloor heating is of a good size and benefits from a separate shower cubicle in addition to bath, basin and wc

Outside, there is a large rear garden.  Atmospheric and extending to some 100ft, the presence of an original brick-built Privy continues the historic theme

Attached to the main property is a large vaulted roof building.  Originally the old 1832 Dame school and now used as a workshop / garage, it features double doors and additional door to both the rear and the side drive.  The original schoolroom’s brick fireplace also features.  This building could be used for a multitude of purposes with the future opportunity to convert to a residential extension, separate annexe etc (stpp)

Properties of this nature rarely come to the market and thus an early viewing is highly recommended.
