Property Description

With the original part of the property dating to the 1700’s, 3 Narrow Lane benefitted from an extensive renovation by the current owners in 2019, including new thatch and new boiler and now provides four-bedrooms as well as generous living accommodation over two levels, measuring approximately 154SQM/1667SQFT.

Upon entering the original part of the house, you are greeted by two similar sized reception rooms with an inglenook fireplace between. Both rooms have a wealth of character including original beams. Off the formal dining room, the stairs take you to the first floor and provide access to the first of the two extensions, which were designed by Space Architects:

In the first extension is an enviable master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling window overlooking the rear garden. There is an en-suite shower room and a set of French doors which open onto the patio.

The second extension is off the kitchen, the original part of the house. This extension also has a vaulted ceiling and enjoys an abundance of natural light flowing through thanks largely to two Velux windows and further windows and French doors to the side aspect. This part of the extension is used as the family/living space and has a wood burning stove, wooden floors and opens directly onto the garden. Between the kitchen and living room is a ground floor WC and access onto the gravelled driveway.

To the first floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The first floor of the property is within the original part of the house and offers a wealth of character and originality. Of the three bedrooms, two are doubles and the third bedroom is currently being used as a home office.

Externally – to the front is a paved area leading upto the front door with a privet hedge and picket fence border. To the side of the property is a gravel laid driveway with parking for one vehicle and an external electric plug socket. The rear garden is sizeable, fully enclosed, well established and very private. It is has a patio area wrapping around the rear of the property and is laid predominantly to lawn. Integrated outdoor lighting to front and side creates a stunning ambience in the evenings.
