GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
A timber front entrance door opens into a spacious hallway which allows access to the traditionally configured ground floor accommodation. To either side of the hallway are two well proportioned public rooms; the main lounge enjoys a double aspect with large sash and case windows to the front and to the side. A traditional brick open fire to one wall currently provides a traditional focal point with built in cupboard to the side. The second public room is located to the other side of the main entrance hall and again due to its pleasant proportions, could lend itself to different uses depending on preferences. Most recently used as a formal dining room, this room also features a large front facing sash and case window to the front and open fire. Extending to the rear is the breakfasting kitchen which features large windows to the rear overlooking the garden in addition to a side window which looks towards the adjoining paddock. Currently fitted with a range of wall and base units this is a spacious room with rear door allowing direct access from the garden. Also located on the ground floor is the bathroom which is fitted with a traditional three piece suite.
The staircase leads to a split landing with rear facing window ensuring good natural light. Steps then extend off to both sides allowing access to the three double bedrooms. All three bedrooms have front and or side facing windows which ensure fantastic outlooks towards Flooden Field and Branxton Village.
A very private, partially walled rear garden extends from the side to the rear of the property. Enjoying excellent levels of privacy the rear gardens enjoy uninterrupted outlooks to the rear over the adjoining farmland. A stone built outhouse provides a useful store. Due to the nature of the gardens wrapping around the property there is excellent scope and space for further extension if desired, subject to the necessary consents.
An adjoining paddock lies to the side of the property with gated access off the quiet country lane that runs past the front of the property. Believed to extend to approximately 0.75 acre the paddock is ideal for a small pony or other livestock such as sheep. The paddock area could be incorporated as an extension to the garden if desired to create space for chickens or a large vegetable garden if preferred.
