Overview First Floor

To the first floor, the master bedroom is a large double with built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Bedroom two is also a good sized double, located to the front. Bedrooms three and four are also generous doubles, with side windows. The bathroom completes the accommodation and has a spa bath, mains shower, wash basin, WC and bidet. A loft access in bedroom two also provides access to a good sized loft space with potential to convert into further bedrooms.


The property occupies a generous plot with plenty of parking to the front and side, leading to a detached, double garage/workshop. There's also a large patio area and lawn with fruit trees and vegetable garden.

Agents Note

The property was once the William IV public house and it is believed there was originally a farm on the site (circa 1700) which later became a coaching house. It ceased to trade as a pub almost 50 years ago, during which time it has undergone significant renovation including the addition of a large extension.
