Bridge House is being offered for sale for the first time in 45 years and has been in the same ownership during that period. The property is Grade ll listed and, in areas, could be remodeled and updated, but any works would need consultation with the local authority/planners.
The principal house dates back to the Georgian period with a classic front elevation and within this section are two imposing reception rooms with high ceilings, sash windows with shutters and alcove fireplaces. Moving back into the heart of the house the inner hallway leads to a useful shower/cloakroom and separate utility/laundry room. Moving further towards the rear is a good sized kitchen/dining room with oil fired Aga and this area forms a single storey extension which joins the oldest part of the original building to the Georgian front. A particular feature of the kitchen/dining room is that it sides into a westerly facing walled cottage garden. Beyond the kitchen/dining room is a good sized rear lobby that was used as a play room in turn giving access to a very useful walk in pantry/larder. On the first floor of the principal Georgian front are 4 bedrooms with the master having an en-suite together with a family bathroom and a sizeable roof/attic space.
Outside and attached to the property at the rear is the garage/workshop with an adjoining two storey Annex. On the ground floor of the annex is a living room and small kitchenette, with a spiral staircase leading into a first floor bedroom and separate shower room.
Outside the gardens consist of lawn areas, mature trees, fruit trees, shrubs and borders. The use of dry stone walling is a feature to numerous boundaries and the western side of the garden is flanked by a stream. The whole plot sits on c.0.8 of an acre.
