The Property

Rushcroft House is thought to be one of the older properties in the village, dating from the 18th Century, albeit not Listed. This charming detached home has been much improved by the current owner over the last 6 years, and offers flexible accommodation with the option of a ground floor bedroom if required. The accommodation is unusually light and airy and the kitchen has a lovely flagstone floor. The garden is a particular feature and includes a large vegetable garden. The wiring has been upgraded with a new consumer unit, the bathrooms are re-fitted to a high standard, together with a pressurised hot water system and a water softener.

The Accommodation

The recessed front door leads into a pleasant hall with wide chestnut floor boards. Stairs lead off and on the left is the good sized and dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with built-in fridge, freezer, dishwasher, electric double oven, hob and extractor hood. Beyond is the sitting room, again dual aspect with a stone fireplace and log burning stove. Off the kitchen is a large utility/boot room with plentiful cupboards and a door to the garden. To the right of the hall is a ground floor bedroom or formal dining room, which has a study area at the rear and a well appointed 'jack and jill' shower room off. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, two of which are dual aspect. The large and luxurious family bathroom has a free standing bath and a large shower enclosure.

This is supplemented by a host of fruit trees and bushes, together with lovely cottage garden planting. At the rear is a shaded patio area with a useful bike shed set into the rear of the house. At the front, to the right hand side, is the oil tank and useful storage space. The large horse chestnut has permission to be removed, if required, and the garden has been dog-proofed.
