The Old Brew House
As the name would suggest, this Grade II listed property was a former brew house, with some parts dating back to 1530. The front door can be found through an archway on the High Street and reveals the wealth of history that is felt in every corner and welcomes all who visit this wonderful property.
The sitting room at the front of the property has a wood burner in an inglenook fireplace surround, complete with an original timber mantle and stone flag hearth. It is a lovely room to relax with a good book or watch TV in the evenings.
The second reception room is an excellent dining room but is equally flexible enough for many different uses, whether you need a snug library, family room, playroom or office.
At the rear of the home, you will find the breakfast kitchen. A lovely sun-filled room with a range of white wooden kitchen units and space for a breakfast table in the centre. Quarry tiled flooring and beams across the ceiling, the room then continues through to the WC and an area that houses the washing machine to keep them out of the kitchen, culminating in the sunroom at the rear of the property. The most delightful spot to enjoy your morning coffee all year round and open the doors to the garden area in the summer to allow the warm summer breeze in. The southerly aspect ensures that the sun’s rays can be felt throughout the day and into the evening in this surprisingly peaceful and private oasis of calm and tranquillity from the hustle and bustle of the nearby High Street.
From the hallway, you can access the cellar below. Whilst no longer filled with ale, the stone steps lead to a dry room with decent head height, currently used for storage with a workbench.
Moving to the first floor, you will find the principal bedroom at the front of the property with wardrobes fitted to one wall. There is another bedroom at the front and two bedrooms towards the rear. Exposed timbers carry the charm throughout the property and into the first-floor rooms. And finally, there is a family bathroom with a modern feel, a large shower, a basin in a vanity unit, and a WC.
The loft is easily accessible and provides plenty of storage space. The loft and other parts of the property reveal the building’s long history, including oak timbers that most likely came from earlier buildings or even a ship.
Located just off the High Street, there are many independent shops and boutiques, and Waitrose is just a short walk away. The private patio and parking space at the rear are not often found in a location as central as this, and you. The Old Brew House perfectly blends quiet country life and town centre convenience.
