A very rare opportunity to purchase an extensive ground floor apartment in a wonderful, converted period residence

Boasting a magnificent private rear garden with sensational views over open countryside and the village of Thorner, come with us as we go through the keyhole.

Situated in a quiet location at the end of short private road within this highly regarded village, the property is perfect for those who want to downsize but still require spacious bedrooms and reception rooms with generous storage, a private garden and double garage. 

Thought to have been built in 1833 and converted in 1957 this remarkable apartment exudes rich historical splendour, with a wealth of significant character features throughout, and an internal inspection is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the size and quality of accommodation on offer.

Upon entry into the property, you are greeted by a welcoming reception hall that leads into a large dining hallway with tall, arched ceilings and decorative cornicing. The elegant living room is light and airy having plenty of natural light streaming in from the dual-aspect sash windows including a large walk-in bay window with window seat to the rear elevation that enjoys a delightful aspect over the rear garden.

A central feature fireplace with carved wood surround is suitable for open fires, and tall ceilings with ornate cornicing and attractive original hardwood flooring complete the room. 

An inner hallway with parquet flooring, a side entrance door and two useful storage cupboards lead you to the breakfast kitchen situated at the front of the property. Here you’ll find modern storage units fitted at floor and wall height with solid wood counter level work surfaces incorporating an array of integrated appliances with space and plumbing for a dishwasher. 

In addition, there is a window to the front elevation with space for a small table and chairs, recessed spotlights and access via a floor hatch leading to an extensive cellar area. This offers excellent scope for further development and has the potential to be converted into a substantial living space, subject to necessary planning consents and building regulations.

Across the hallway is a separate utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, with useful additional storage.

The master bedroom is a wonderful size having a large walk-in bay window to the rear elevation enjoying views over the garden and further benefits from attractive fitted wardrobes. A contemporary ensuite wet room comprises a two-piece white suite with a walk-in shower area, tiled walls and flooring with frosted window to the side aspect.

Bedroom two is another generous-sized room having dual aspect windows, a fitted hand wash basin and extensive wardrobes providing useful storage space. Bedroom three offers great flexibility and could be used as a study, perfect for those who need to work from home. This room has beautiful parquet flooring, recessed spotlights and two windows to the rear elevation. 

The luxurious house bathroom comprises a modern three-piece white suite with shower unit over the bath, laminate wood flooring, part-tiled walls, recessed spotlights, a useful airing cupboard and two windows to the front aspect.

Externally, the property is approached via a private road that leads to two garages and generous parking. To the front of the property is small, low maintenance garden area housing a variety of mature shrubs, plants and trees. 

A real selling feature of this property is the generous and private rear garden accessed via a secure side gate. The garden is fully enclosed and predominantly laid to lawn with surrounding borders, a delightful pond feature, a timber-built summer house and boasting simply sensational long-distance views over open countryside and the village of Thorner. 

Accessed via the living room is a delightful, paved patio area, ideal for al fresco dining and outdoor entertaining.
