Buckland Monachorum

In heart of the village conservation area

325,000 Freehold

A late 16th century grade II listed village house, beautifully presented and boasting a wealth of period detail. Deceptively spacious, both inside and out, behind the façade unfolds a gracious home which, via a cross passage hallway, leads out into an unexpected 150’ rear garden with private parking.
Architectural merit is abundant and especially noteworthy is the open slate porch with side seats and a granite arched front door which leads into the slate-floored cross passage hallway. The sitting room, with its unusually high beamed ceiling, also boasts a fireplace with chamfered granite jambs and adjacent, is the original stone spiral stairway.
The property has undergone a programme of sympathetic and subtle refurbishment with the overall ‘niche, nook and cranny’ ambience deftly intact. Also re-modelled, the kitchen/dining room now benefits from a hand-crafted re-fitting of oak-surfaced tulip wood units and a gas Aga. The bathroom has also been fitted with a stylish new white suite, tastefully combing with limestone tiles.
An attractive streetscape frontage bellies a large secluded garden of approximately a sixth of an acre, which is mainly laid to lawn and accessed via a small courtyard. There is access to the rear via a connecting service lane with additional parking for up to two vehicles.
