BRIEF DESCRIPTION A beautifully proportioned and handsome period family home set in the heart of this highly sought after village. The Old Manse simply oozes character. Every room has its own character and charm yet they are all practical family sized rooms. Of particular note is the excellent former stable at the rear of the house that could easily be converted for a variety of uses including a self contained annexe, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
Braughing is a picturesque village surrounded by beautiful countryside through which there are many wonderful footpaths and bridleways. The village enjoys three village pubs/eateries, a highly rated primary school, St Mary's Church and numerous societies and sports clubs. In addition there is a cricket field, tennis courts, a village hall and of course the ford that is the focal point of Braughings annual wheelbarrow race.
As you step into the house the character of this wonderful home is immediately evident. The sitting room opens up in front of you and the eye is drawn to the large redbrick inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. This is a great room to welcome friends and family into the home. Off the sitting room is a downstairs cloakroom, stairs rise to the first floor and a door opens to the stairs that lead down to the cellar. When in the cellar one really can see the history of the house, there is even what is thought to have once been a small jail cell !
Also off the sitting room is a lovely lounge, a perfect retreat on a cold winters night with a fire lit in the beautiful red brick fireplace. The separate dining room is a very good size and leads into the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. A focal point to the kitchen is the AGA which perfectly compliments the extensive range of units and the tiled floor. Doors open out onto the courtyard area of the garden.
At the rear of the house is a useful utility room from which a small staircase leads up to additional accommodation that is the first floor of the former stables. This is a great space for many uses, a bedroom, office or even a self contained annexe, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. It is a lovely side and is presently used as a teenagers den.
In the main house, stairs rise up to the first floor landing off which are three good size double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs lead to the top floor with two further bedrooms that are a good size but with slightly restricted headroom. There is also an attractively refitted shower room on this top floor.
The Old Manse enjoys a lovely rear garden with a courtyard style garden that adjoins the house providing a lovely secluded spot to sit and enjoy a summers day. Beyond the courtyard is the lawn bordered by shrubs and extending to the bottom of the garden. A wonderful wisteria is found growing up the outside of the former stable. The stable is a lovely period building being two storey with its first floor presently used as a studio/bedroom as it is entered via the main house. The two workshops/garages on the ground floor of the stable provide useful space and could, subject to planning approval be combined with the first floor to provide a self contained annexe or two storey house.
