Mulberry Farmhouse is an attractive attached stone-built property dating back to 1782, with accommodation arranged over three floors. It offers the type of flexible living that suits modern family needs.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway with painted wooden gates leading to the enclosed rear garden, and parking for numerous vehicles.
Just off the entrance hallway is the boot room, which is perfect for storing all the family's coats and sporting equipment.
The kitchen/breakfast room is the "hub" of this delightful home having been opened out to a conservatory that was added in 2006 providing room for all the family to gather together for informal dining.
The kitchen is fitted with a good number of cream-painted units in a farmhouse style complemented by a terracotta tiled floor.
The central island provides additional storage, and it is the perfect space to perch and chat with friends whilst enjoying a coffee or glass of wine.
There is an electric AGA, and space for a conventional oven.
The conservatory is a great addition to this 18th-century village home, enjoying views over the private and sunny rear garden.
The sitting room is double-aspect and has the benefit of an attractive brick-built Inglenook fireplace with a timber mantle and log burner. Shutters on the windows, exposed timbers, and solid oak flooring also add to the traditional feeling of this lovely room.
Accessed via the corner of the sitting room is a useful store room that steps down and currently makes for a fantastic games room.
A second large reception room with an attractive fireplace offers the flexibility to be used as a family room/den or large study.
A useful utility room with cupboards and a W.C completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor can be accessed from stairs in the hallway, and a second staircase between the family room and sitting room.
There are four double bedrooms on this floor all with views over the rear garden, and the family bathroom. The master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom that has been recently refurbished, which can also be accessed from the landing serving as a "Jack and Jill" bathroom.
On the second floor, there are two further rooms, and a bathroom perfect as a guest suite with a dressing room, or a teenager's pad.
Outside the garden is enclosed, mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees there is also plenty of space for a vegetable garden and al-fresco dining.
A gravel path leads to the detached timber building that was constructed in 2009 as a home office. Refurbished by the current vendors to include a w.c and shower it also lends itself to be utilised as a studio, games room, and a number of purposes.
There is also a stone-built storage shed with mains electricity.
