Standing in grounds approaching a quarter of an acre and dating back in parts to the mid 17th Century, the property was, as the name suggests, originally the bake house of the village. The original outbuildings which date back to the early 1800's were joined to the main house in the 1960's to create a characterful cottage, arranged on two floors and totalling 1927sq ft of internal accommodation.

The Old Bakehouse is a spacious, light and airy cottage boasting warmth and characterful charm throughout. Features include stone walls, beamed ceilings, window seating and an Inglenook fireplace to the dual aspect sitting room. There is also a separate dining room with Oak flooring. The kitchen has a tiled floor and is fitted with a range of eye and base-level units with complementary worksurfaces, oven and hob with extractor above and separate microwave oven. There is a separate utility/cloakroom again with tiled flooring, wc, washhand-basin and space for fridge/freezer, washing machine and fitted cupboards. A staircase leads from the hallway to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, both with window seats to enjoy the views over the pretty rear gardens. The principal bedroom is a large and light filled room, being dual aspect and has an en-suite shower room with washhand-basin and WC. Further steps lead to the bathroom and the third bedroom, which is another good-sized room, with windows to the rear and an outside door leading to the gardens via stone steps. A second staircase leads to two attic rooms with good head height which could be used for a multitude of purposes; home office/gym etc.

Outside

A small driveway provides parking for one vehicle with a pathway and gated access to the front courtyard. Principally paved with flowering borders set in retaining stone walling, the courtyard gives access to the front entrance and gated pedestrian access to the side of the property.

The beautiful and mature rear gardens are another particular feature having been landscaped to provide many areas of interest including a productive area for cut flowers/vegetables, a gravelled seating area with a wildlife pond and an ornamental garden. In addition, there is a summerhouse with a decked surround and seating area clad with magnificent old wisteria. It is a lovely space to entertain and enjoy whilst watching the sunset.
