Full property description

An enchanting Grade ll Listed semi-detached property, situated in the sought-after location of Boughton and offering almost 2300 sq. ft of versatile accommodation, a south facing rear garden and off-road parking. This characterful property has a wealth of history, many original features, a spacious and quirky layout. Over the centuries it has been extended and now includes a spectacular vaulted kitchen/breakfast room which was originally the stables. The property is a hidden gem, with its double fronted faade and unusual bow sash windows. It is ready for someone to embrace its potential and sympathetically restore and renovate this beautiful family home.

Upon entrance through the original front door, you are welcomed by a large entrance hall with intricate architrave, Bakelite fittings and bow timber framed window. Although the first impression highlights the work needed in the property it also showcases the features that flourish throughout.

There are two reception rooms to either side of the hallway both of which offer exposed brick inglenook fireplaces with an oak bressummer, one has been covered up but mirrors the one in the sitting room, only slightly smaller.

Beyond the hallway, there are steps down into another reception room which is currently used as a study and overlooks the pretty garden through the bow window. There is a small hatch which is thought to be used for the bread when the property was once a bakery.

To the left, there is a utility area, parts of the floor have original quarry tiles and leads through to a boot room where one will find access to the garden and a small cloakroom.

At the rear of the property, you step down into what was the stables, this room has a magnificent, vaulted ceiling, original stable windows and serves as the kitchen/breakfast room. An electric and gas fired modern Aga sits grandly at the foot of this room, to the right a bespoke wooden unit encompasses a butler sink and both areas are complemented by ceramic metro tiles.

Stairs to the first floor come off the entrance hall, there is a family bathroom and four well-proportioned bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite, in need of repair. Two of the bedrooms hold lovely brick arch features which we believe would have been the framing for the original external windows.

There is another staircase leading to a 30ft bedroom with characterful exposed rafters.

OUTSIDE:

The garden will measure approx. 70ft which will include an original brick courtyard that flows onto the lawn. At the rear of the garden there will be a fence to clearly show the boundary in which this plot owns, beyond the fence there will be an allocated parking space large enough for two cars, which is accessed via George Lane. There are double gates from the courtyard which open to the side of the property, this would have been used for the horse and cart now perfect for bringing in bicycles or waste bins.

VIEWINGS ARE STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY ON SATURDAY 14TH MAY 2022 OR SATURDAY 28TH MAY 2022. BEST AND FINAL OFFERS ARE INVITED BY NO LATER THAN 12PM ON WEDNESDAY 1ST JUNE 2022.
