2 Bedroom Mid-Terraced House For Sale

An historic site in the village which was repurposed in the 1920's to create a comfortable double fronted house.

The Old Gaol was once the site of the village 'lock up' from the 1700's under a thatched roof span and then re-imagined in the 20th century whilst incorporating the original Gaol door as depicted by the blue plaque.

The house now offers good and balanced reception spaces with a sitting room and dining room, a rear kitchen and a sizeable garden-side conservatory. Two equal sized bedrooms are on the first floor both with built in cupboards, also featuring dormer windows to the front and there is plenty of eaves storage to each.

The sitting room has a small wood burning fireplace and a door to the kitchen. The kitchen has a range of wall and floor units, the gas boiler and space for the usual kitchen appliances and a larder cupboard under the stairs. The kitchen also gives access to the timber framed conservatory with its French doors to the garden and a side glassed door to the side access. A sizeable shower room is off to one side which incorporates the old outside WC. Lastly, the dining room can be accessed from either the kitchen or the entrance hall giving a good balance to the house.
