Nestled in the very heart of the lovely village of Chebsey, just a short drive from Eccleshall, this cottage over the years has transformed from a school room, shop, parsonage and several cottages, with parts dating back to the 1630s and has finally come together to form this beautiful detached home that could be just perfect for you. With character spilling out at the seams this Grade II listed property has all of the living, working and entertaining space that you could wish for and lots of options to easily configure that space to meet a wide range of individual requirements. The L- Shaped building lends itself to working in many different ways with a central reception hall at its heart. To the left there is a spacious breakfast kitchen with large pantry, boot room and utility room, downstairs cloaks and a sitting room having gorgeous open fire, exposed brick work and beams throughout. On the right there is a formal lounge with inglenook fireplace and formal dining room. Up on the first floor accessed from the original oak staircase there are four bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom finished to an excellent standard and all with exposed beams and double aspects making them characterful yet bright and airy rooms. Above the main bedroom is a spacious attic room whilst below the sitting rooms there is a large dry cellar. That's not all. Beyond the formal lounge, with its own external access, steps lead up to a self contained fifth bedroom/studio complete with kitchenette and en suite shower room - perfect for family visits, the relatives that need to live with you or a office away from the house all sat above a huge double garage. The property sits on a spacious plot with two driveways to provide access to the rear and parking having the garden stretching out to the rear and a secure paddock to the side. I can't stop talking about this fantastic home. You need to see it to believe it. Call us today to arrange your viewing.
