WHEELWRIGHTS is an interesting and very well presented Grade II listed home, set in a conservation area, and is believed to date back to the 16th century. The property retains many period features including exposed timbers throughout and was originally two cottages. The current owners have recently updated the two bathrooms and have also added a superb conservatory/garden room, ideal for additional outdoor dining but could possibly be used as a home office. Accommodation comprises of a very large entrance hall/study area with built in bookshelves, which opens into the sitting room to the rear with a brick fireplace housing a wood burning stove and French doors leading to the garden’s courtyard. Open studwork leads through to the dining room and two secondary glazed bay windows provide attractive views over the green and the neighbouring houses. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining room and is fitted with a range of wall and base units incorporating a Bosch double oven and grill and a four-ring gas hob with extractor fan. There is also room for a freestanding dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer. A cupboard houses the gas fired central heating boiler and a door opens to a useful covered side passage with a wrought iron gate leading to the garden.

The first floor landing has a large shelved cupboard housing a water softener, an airing cupboard and access to a capacious boarded loft. The master bedroom is of particularly good size with an original corner cupboard and a good range of fitted wardrobes. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a bath, a stand-alone shower and a wash basin inset to a large vanity unit. The two other bedrooms are doubles in size with book/display shelves and fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom has a bath with a shower above and a wash basin inset to a vanity unit.

OUTSIDE to the front, a small area is cobbled and enclosed by a gated picket fence. A side door leads you through the useful covered passage with the wrought iron gate to the garden. The garden, which is 120 feet in length, is completely walled and designed by a National award winning garden designer. It features a paved pathway leading you across a three-tiered courtyard with raised planters, flower beds and two arbours to the main lawn with surrounding flower beds and conservatory/garden room. This has underfloor heating and an adjacent garden lockup and both are entered by French doors.
