The Old Tower is an impressive period property which enjoys a prominent position at the head of this sought after village. Historically, this imposing red brick Victorian building functioned as a water tower and supplied water to surrounding houses. Converted into a dwelling in the 1990s, whilst preserving many original features, this wonderful period residence has been greatly improved by the current owners and has existing planning consent for a sympathetic two storey extension. The accommodation is extremely versatile with a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor. The former Coach House is a drawing room which boasts a high ceiling, glazed rear elevation and a beautiful marble open fireplace. From the spacious reception hall, there is a family room that links to an impressive kitchen/ breakfast room which, in turn, extends out to an inviting, spacious garden dining room. The kitchen is fitted with attractive cabinetry including glass fronted display cupboards, a breakfast cupboard, generous granite work surfaces and splashbacks with a double sink and matching preparation island/breakfast bar. There is an integrated dishwasher and eight-ring gas range and solid wood flooring throughout. There is a practical utility room off the inner hallway with butler sink, two wall mounted gas fired boilers, and space for an American washing machine and dryer. Upstairs, there are three large double bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom. The master bedroom boasts a dressing room and an en-suite with walk-in shower. Outside, there is a gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles and a double garage. The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with flower and shrub borders and beds and a generous paved terrace with pergola which is ideal for al fresco dining. This garden is enclosed by hedging and therefore enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion. The large side garden has been recently landscaped, laid mainly to attractive sandstone paviour with raised flower and shrub beds and, again, is a private space.
