Oak House

Oak House is a delightful and well-maintained Grade II Listed Townhouse, built of mellow brick and retaining many original period features, including fireplaces, sash windows (refurbished), exposed beams, and wooden flooring (believed to be Elm).
The delightful country-style kitchen/breakfast room benefits from a Rangemaster range cooker, Belfast-style sink, oak work-surfaces and original quarry-tiled floor. There is a useful walk-in larder offering additional storage and a door out to the rear paved terrace and courtyard garden.
The comfortable and cosy sitting room has a feature inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and exposed beams. The separate dining room also retains an original fireplace and has plenty of space for entertaining. Both rooms are equally proportioned and generously light.
The good-sized family bathroom is located on the ground floor and features a freestanding, roll top bath and separate shower.
To the first floor, there is a very spacious principal bedroom, which benefits from original exposed wooden flooring, built-in wardrobes and an original feature fireplace. There is a second double room, also with wooden flooring, exposed beams and feature fireplace. There are two further double bedrooms on the second floor, which mirror those on the first floor in size.
This property is a true delight and a wonderful home; lovely and light throughout with great character and a very welcoming and comfortable feeling.

The Outside

To the rear of the property is a super courtyard garden featuring the outline of an original outbuilding, creating a charming walled garden with raised beds, cobbled and gravelled patio with seating area, perfect for seasonal dining and entertaining.
