With views both out to the garden and onto the pretty Kersey streets, the sitting room is a cosy space, enhanced by the charming red fireplace. 

Dripping with character, the dining hall has a second fire set back in a brick indent, enjoys views out onto the street and has exposed timber beams on the ceiling.

The study, also located on the ground floor, has a large bay window offering further scenic views over Kersey's ancient houses.

To the rear, the property has a range of later additions, which currently make up the kitchen/breakfast room and the garden room. With fitted pine cabinets and worktops along both walls, a pantry, as well as an oil-fired Aga, the kitchen has a farmhouse feel that fits perfectly with the rest of the house.

Upstairs the property has two double bedrooms and two single bedrooms. The views from the upstairs windows mirror the scenic views from the rooms in the downstairs original section of the house. The principal bedroom has an unusual "half-barrel" fireplace, as well as an expansive wardrobe and views in two directions.

Located along a short corridor, the other three bedrooms are smaller, but two of these are connected by a stud wall that would be easy to remove to reinstate a second large double room. In addition, the property has an upstairs family bathroom, as well as a downstairs shower room.

The garden consists of a raised level of gravel surrounded by lawn, and also contains a former blacksmiths forge in Kersey
