The Hawthorns is an imposing period home with attractive red brick elevations offset by sash windows beneath a tiled roof. With origins dating back to 1860 the property retains a wealth of inherent character and charm and this can only be appreciated by an internal viewing. The interior is most generously proportioned with the ground floor comprising a hallway with cloakroom, a bright and spacious sitting room with wood burning stove, a study, dining room and garden room. A door from the hall opens into a magnificent, new open plan kitchen/breakfast room with vaulted ceiling. There are three double bedrooms, a beautifully appointed bathroom with period suite and access to fully boarded attic space on the first floor. Externally the large gardens extend to the rear and one side being predominantly laid to lawn, enjoying a sunny south facing aspect and a high degree of privacy. A large gravel driveway to the front provides ample parking and turning space. Planning permission has been granted for a two storey side extension and the erection of a detached tandem double garage, ref 18/03425/FUL.
