5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

A detached 5 bedroom Grade II listed stone house with modern extension expertly combining old character with contemporary living giving flexible family accommodation.

The dwelling comprises a traditional Marnhull stone house with a linked barn style extension. The original stone house dates from the 1600s and has some wonderful period features including beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, window seats and large superb inglenook fireplace.

The house has an excellent family kitchen/breakfast room with a good range of wall mounted and floor standing units with granite work surfaces, a gas fired Aga and integrated appliances include a single oven, an induction hob, a dishwasher and a fridge / freezer. French doors lead out to the terrace. The sitting room is a wonderful room with plenty of character and period features including exposed beams, stone fireplace and window seats. Beyond the sitting room is a study and a ground floor bathroom. From the sitting room a door leads to the staircase giving access to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a dressing room.

Listed building consent was granted in September 2004 for a contemporary barn style extension that is linked to the main house via a glazed garden room and internal accommodation now measures just over 3000 sq.ft. Off the garden room is a utility / cloakroom with space and plumbing for two appliances. The juxtaposition between old and new is superb and the extension currently has a large dining room with French doors to the garden along with a kitchen (or bedroom) on the ground floor while the first floor is a master bedroom suite comprising double bedroom, bathroom and dressing room with glazed landing and seating area overlooking the garden. The extension allows for separate accommodation and gives versatility and could suit an elderly or dependent relative.
