Dating back to the 1700’s and set right in the heart of the village with stunning views of the ancient church, Hodgsons Barn still retains some of its original features yet has a contemporary finish melding perfectly alongside. Briefly, the accommodation comprises a spacious lounge with superb ingle fireplace, a good-sized breakfast kitchen with separate utility room and vestibule, two bedrooms, luxury bathroom and loft room. The secluded, south facing rear garden is well stocked and the shared driveway provides two personal parking spaces.
The painted timber stable-style door with glazed inset and windows to either side opens to the vestibule with a pendant light and warmed by a vertical tube radiator. To one side is space for a hall seat beneath the coat rack and muddy boot storage, to the other side is a utility area with high gloss wall cabinets, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
The oak laminate flooring continues from the vestibule and beyond the tongue and groove latch stable-style door into the well-appointed dining kitchen which has two track lighting points and recessed downlighting. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of ivory-shaded high-gloss wall and base units incorporating glazed display cabinets, drawers and shelves. Wood effect worktops surround and have an inset single drainer enamel sink unit with spring mixer tap, is set below both side windows and the integrated dishwasher sits just below. Cooking facilities are provided by the Rangemaster five-burner gas range cooker with a stainless-steel chimney style extractor fan above. Other integrated appliances include a fridge, a freezer and a wine chiller, and there is an oak spindle staircase rising to the first floor.
A latch door opens to the generously spacious lounge which also has oak laminate flooring, exposed ceiling beams and three wall lights for evening ambience. Large French windows with glazed side panels allow natural light to flow int the room and they open to the rear garden. However, the focal point of the room is the almost full-height exposed brick ingle fireplace with a beautiful herringbone pattern fire back, inset oak mantle and stone flagged hearth which supports the log burning stove. To one side is a built-in timber seat with log store below and there is also a television point.
The first-floor landing has an exposed ceiling beam, a ceiling light and oak doors to the rooms off.
The dual aspect master bedroom has deep-sill windows to the side and rear and a chandelier point to the oak beamed and vaulted ceiling. Warmed by two radiators, the room features exposed floorboards, a built-in wardrobe with latch door and there is ample room for further wardrobes and drawer banks.
Bedroom two is a single room with a side window, ceiling light and vertical panel radiator. A niche houses a built-in bookshelf unit and the room also has space for a wardrobe.
The bathroom has fully tiled white walls with mosaic panel detailing forming the backdrop to the luxury four-piece white suite comprising corner shower cubicle, a wall mounted vanity set wash basin with mono-block tap and illuminated mirror over, close coupled w.c. and a back-to-wall bathtub with a mixer tap and hand shower. The recessed downlighting showcases the bleached oak laminate flooring with under-floor heating and a graphite shaded wall mounted panel radiator warms the towels.
From the landing, a step ladder with handrails gives access to the loft room having a Velux window to the rear and giving an amazing view of the ancient Croston church. Warmed by a radiator, the room displays exposed oak beams and a roof truss, has a ceiling light and built-in eaves cupboards and drawers provide excellent storage.
The property is approached via stone gates posts set into a low brick retaining wall to a shared Tarmacadam driveway providing private parking for two cars and space for a garden shed. A secure timber side gate gives way to the south facing, split-level rear garden which is fully enclosed by timber panel fencing. An Indian stone flagged terrace runs across the rear elevation and provides a superb and secluded al fresco dining space and has a lovely water feature to the side. Steps cut into a low wall and rise to the lawn which has a stepping stone path leading to the summerhouse. Well-stocked herbaceous borders sit to two sides and are dotted with specimen trees and shrubs whilst trellis climbers are strategically placed between. An attached brick outhouse with latch door, Velux window, power and light is an added bonus for storing garden tools and equipment.
