Early viewing is recommended for this fabulous home which has been extensively modernised whilst retaining many original features. The property will appeal to those seeking a character property finished to a high specification, with many state of the art features. Formerly the village post office, the original stone dwelling is two storey and dates from circa 1900.

The property is accessed by a uPVC front door into a bright welcoming hallway. A traditional wooden floor features in the hallway, kitchen and sun room.The lounge has a lovely homely feeling, with the main focal point being the attractive multi-fuel burner set on a black slate hearth. With a quirky, unique shape, dual aspect windows, an Edinburgh press cupboard and a traditional alcove, together makes for a delightful space to relax in.
The contemporary kitchen has a rustic feel, in keeping with the character of the property. Decorated in neutral colours, it is complimented with a belfast sink, electric cooker with double oven and grill and a modern extractor fan. The base and wall units are of differing proportions and feature large pull out larders and pan drawers. There is ample room for family dining.

Double doors from the hallway lead through to the sun room/family area, which offers many different uses. A practical utility and WC is located off the sun room, which also houses the Inverter for the ground mounted solar panels. Access to the rear garden.

All the bedrooms are located on the upper floor. The master bedroom is well proportioned with an attractive cast iron fireplace and walk-in wardrobe. The en-suite shower room, with tasteful modern furniture, benefits from under floor heating and a tiled shower enclosure. A further four bedrooms lead off from the bright upper hallway. Bedrooms two and three are well proportioned, both with wash hand basins and radiators which draw heat from the multi-fuel wood burner in the lounge. All the bedrooms have electric panel heaters for such times that the wood burner is not in use. A fabulous, contemporary bathroom completes the accommodation on the upper floor. Finished to an exceptional standard, the bathroom features a large free-standing bath, a double shower cubicle, modern furniture with the added benefit of under floor heating. Excellent storage is provided by way of a large under stair cupboard and a further storage cupboard in the upper hallway, providing access to the attic space.

Another fantastic feature are the ground mounted solar panels located in the top rear garden. These assist in keeping the heating costs to a minimum. The Multi-fuel burner heats seven radiators located in the kitchen, sun room, bedrooms one, two, three and the family bathroom. There are thermostat panels for the underfloor heating in the bathroom and the en-suite. Remote controls for the bath and the shower are very contemporary, allowing the bath to be run to a certain level before it switches off. The remote control for the shower can be activated from the bedroom. Fischer heaters are located in the lounge, sun room, lower hallway and upper landing. These highly efficient radiators have thermostatic timers, allowing heat control when you need it most. The solar panels work alongside the heaters, and what is not utilised is sold back to Fischer, reducing the cost of the utilities considerably.

The garden ground to the rear is split into two levels. A paved patio area with a pergola provides a great spot for outdoor entertaining. A beautiful natural stone stairway leads up to the top level, which is mainly laid to lawn. A large raised deck provides a lovely private seating area, which catches the sun most of the day. Outdoor storage is provided by way of a brick built garden shed.
