Full Description

Signature Sales & Lettings is delighted to present this beautiful family home. Full of original features, this characterful property is a seamless blend of the traditional and contemporary.

There are two parts to this house - the old and the new. Originally renovated in 2001, and modernised between 2011 - 2019, the current owners bought the house as a four bedroomed family home and have raised a family over the past decade. The property was updated throughout with a new kitchen, modern wet room/bathroom, new ensuite, extra storage and loft conversion. Today, the main house is a spacious six bedroomed living accommodation, ideal for families and professionals.

In 2019, the owners built a stunning two-bedroom extension with open, spacious living areas and a beautiful feature balcony. This annexe is fully self-contained with regular bookings on Airbnb, attracting corporate guests and tourists from around the country. This highly versatile property offers the opportunity to continue with the income-generating Airbnb business or the annexe can be used by family, friends, teenagers and multigenerational families.

The two houses (annexe and main house) are connected by a doorway in the main hallway; once the door is locked, the annexe is self-contained.
