Believed to date back to the mid 16th century, this is likely to be one of the earliest houses in the town. Although added to and remodelled over the years, there is still a real sense of history and character in the whole house. From the smooth brick flooring in the entrance hall, to many original timbers and panelling, to the large fireplace that would have been the centre of the original home, everywhere you look there is an interesting reminder of the past. The house is Grade II Listed, thatched and mostly built of cob on a stone plinth.
For a house of this age, the house has plenty of space which becomes apparent on entry into the hallway, a wide and inviting space which leads to the living room, separated off by an original panelled wall. There are the stairs to the first floor and access through to the dining room, giving additional living space in the middle of the home. On again is a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a useful utility room. It is worth noting that there is a hatch in the floor of the kitchen which the current owners use to store log deliveries. On the first floor, the 3 double bedrooms are served from the central landing and there is a family bathroom.
The front of the property is conveniently located directly onto South Molton Street and close to the town’s amenities. There is on street parking on South Molton Street or additional parking nearby. At the rear, a courtyard style garden (approx. 4m x 4m) is accessed from the utility room, the area is private and a real suntrap being just off facing directly south. There is a variety of plants for some colour, and room for sitting out. A door gives access to the cellar which consists of two rooms (approx. 4m x 3m each) which house the boiler, log store and secure and dry space for storage.
