Area Map
A charming detached property occupying an enviable location on the edge of the delightful and much sought after village of Ellastone. The grounds extend to just over 4 acres (1.61 ha) or thereabouts.

The house, originally a barn, was converted many years ago into the most individual and welcoming house. The Galleried Landing is a particular feature as is the bright and airy Sitting Room with woodburning stove.

The property is accessed via a green oak framed enclosed Porch, which was constructed by a local craftsman, on the garden elevation of the house. It opens into the Kitchen which is classic country cottage style room and space for a breakfast table. A door from the Kitchen leads into the main Sitting Room which is flooded with light from the window through the French windows and with its exposed stonework walls and beamed ceiling is a significant characteristic of this house. Noting also the exposed brick chimney breast with timber lintel over the inset cast iron woodburning stove.

From the Sitting Room a reclaimed pine latch door leads to the flag stone floored Dining Room which has further door to the garden and a most impressive Galleried Landing and staircase.

The impressive flag stone flooring continues into the inner lobby accessed from the dining room. Built-in the inner hall are two cupboards, one providing cloak storage space the other further storage and plumbing for a washing machine.
