Property Description

BEING SOLD BY MODERN METHOD OF AUCTION - Quote Ref: DP0213 when requesting further details of this unique and fantastic opportunity to purchase this Grade II Listed former public house in need of renovation. The property is a five-bedroom, five reception room, five fireplace character masterpiece that needs to be brought back to life. The property sits on a third of an acre and has the benefit of a timber framed cart lodge that is ripe for conversion and renovation with the right permissions.

This potentially stunning home is entered via a part glazed front door that takes you into the hallway, this in turn has doors leading to the living room and central dining room. The living room is a great size with the first of the feature fireplaces, a 6 metre room ideal for the family. The dining room will make a great central hub for the home with exposed brickwork walls with visible studwork with doorway openings to the kitchen, conservatory and inner hallway. The kitchen is a character laden room with exposed brick flooring, open brick fireplace with wood burning stove and exposed beams creating a backdrop for the kitchen to be. From the inner hallway there is a family room again with another of the feature fireplaces and exposed beamed ceiling with a window to the front aspect. Next to this room is the study again showcasing the character with another fireplace and window to the front aspects and a door leading into the snug, a fifth reception room for retreating into with the fifth fireplace in this property. From the kitchen there is a larder with exposed brick flooring and wall and ceiling timbers and this then leads into the utility room, again a great space for all the washing and utility needs. To the rear of this part of the house is the shower room with wc and sink. To complete the ground floor accommodation is the vast conservatory that spans a large part of the back of the property, 10 metres long this can be incorporated as part of the square footage.

Stairs rise up to the first floor from the inner hallway and take you to an impressive 26ft landing which showcases some original open studwork and gives access to all of the five potential bedrooms and bathroom. All five bedrooms are double sized all with differing character features whether that is exposed timbers or vaulted ceilings. The room that could house the bathroom is currently an empty room but would make a good-sized bathroom for the home.

The Cartlodge

The cartlodge sits to the front westerly part of the plot and is a timber framed building that could offer possible ancillary accommodation (with planning consent). Currently used as a workshop and store, there are two floors, the main part of the building being 24ft square. A set of double doors and a single doorway gain entry to the building.


To the front of the property there is a shingle driveway that leads to the property. There is a treelined boundary to this property with a variety of Ash and Walnut and Mulberry trees, there is a hard standing to the east side of the property that sits in front of the second gateway entrance that is no longer used but could be opened up again. Double five bar gates create the main entrance to the plot. To the side and rear of the property there is garden land that currently houses some livestock but could be turned back into gorgeous formal gardens with some work. To the west of the property is further garden space with a purpose-built shed to the rear. The plot measures approximately 0.3 of an acre.
