A superbly versatile, character cottage with 4 bedrooms, three reception rooms and delightful gardens set in the heart of a desirable village.

Crossways is an interesting property that has evolved over the centuries. Believed to date from the 1700’s, the property comprised, we think, three cottages, with the end nearest the road, serving as a village shop for many years. The house has handsome features, typical of the era. It also has a wonderful garden. It has been a great family home for the last 45 years, and is now ready for new custodians to bring it up to date and put their own mark upon it.

The versatile accommodation is set over two floors. There is a handsome front door, which served the shop, opening to one of the reception rooms. However, the entry most frequently used, is via the drive and the conservatory, which provides access directly to the kitchen, via bi-fold doors.

The kitchen offers great space for family life, with plenty of room for preparation and cooking to one end, and ample space for a farmhouse table to the other. A range of wall and base units with work-surfaces, incorporates a double sink and drainer. There is an oil-fired Rayburn cooker, and space for an auxiliary electric cooker. Stairs from the kitchen rise to the first floor.

The conservatory offers a large light filled entertaining space with doors leading to the courtyard garden and the sitting room.

The sitting room is cosy with an open fire and stone hearth as a focal point. A door opens to a second staircase leading to the first floor. There is also another door which opens to the inner hallway which allows access to the guest Wc and living room.

The living room, which has attractive original features including exposed timber beams and a large stone fireplace. Steps lead to the dining room. A door also opens to the cellar which is a useful dry storage space.

The dining room was the former shop, has a dual aspect with views along main street. There is plenty of character within the room, with a great ceiling height, exposed beams and original shop hooks and brackets.

There are two sets of stairs leading to the first floor, offering versatility and privacy, if needed, though one can walk from one end of the house to the other at this level.
Stairs from the living room lead to a large landing and the master and guest bedrooms which are served by a shower room with Wc and wash hand basin.

Stairs from the kitchen lead to bedrooms three and four both of which are generous doubles. There is a bathroom between the two, set off the landing. Bedroom four is a through room which can provide access to the front of the house.

Crossways is gable end on to the road. A narrow, gated drive is set to one side and leads down to the conservatory. There is a courtyard beyond this, which opens to the main garden. A large terrace has a small, inset swimming pool, heated via an air source unit, supplemented by the solar panels.

The timber summer house offers changing facilities and a useful shower room / WC, which has also on occasion has been used as an additional bedroom . The majority of the garden is set beyond and is mainly lawned, with a number of fruit trees. A productive kitchen garden is set to one end. A large timber shed provides useful storage. The garden is enclosed by an attractive, drystone wall and hedging.

Solar panels: both thermal and photovoltaic, generating income in excess of £1,200 pa, plus subsidised hot water.

Services: Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil-fired heating central heating.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
