209 Church Street
A C15th a half timber-framed former ‘hall house’ and since 1988, a Grade II listed period home, (1021785), believed to be the house of the historical manor of Hilperton Cheyney. For its time, it was built to a very high quality with a significant amount of decoration applied to the timber frame in the form of chamfering and wind bracing.
The property was extensively renovated between 2006 and 2009, including re-wiring and re-plastering internal and external walls with haired lime mortar, and covered with breathable white lime wash or clay-based paints.
A 5-bar gate leads to the ample, shingled driveway and garage, providing space off the road for numerous vehicles.
The house offers 2 staircases accessing the first floor where there are 4 bedrooms and a refitted family bathroom, boasting a freestanding claw foot bath and underfloor heating.
On the ground floor is a study/snug, a stunning dining room with rare ‘plank and muntin’ elm wall and an impressive inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove. The sitting room gives a generous inglenook fireplace (also with a wood-burning stove). The accommodation is completed by a cloakroom, utility and large kitchen/diner opening onto the patio and 180ft+ rear garden beyond. The huge loft space also offers some potential.
