Chain House is a Grade II Listed building that showcases the architectural intricacies of the 18th century. The house exhibits a combination of Georgian and Victorian designs, providing a glimpse into the architectural transition of that era. It is an invaluable part of the local history and a must-visit.
As you enter the property, you are greeted by a bright and welcoming space. On the right is a formal dining room with solid oak flooring, dual-aspect windows and fireplace with an inset gas fire. On the left is a cosy snug with an original inglenook fireplace with an inset log-burning stove. The owners have removed a staircase to create a larger more usable space and replaced the floor with solid oak.
Adjacent to the snug is a utility and boot room, complete with an integrated shower, ample storage, and a door leading to the rear of the property - perfect for dog lovers who want to keep their home mud-free. Leading on from the snug is a large home office, an essential feature for anyone who works from home. It also benefits from solid oak flooring and a fireplace hearth.
The spacious hallway with solid oak flooring leads to the large cellar, which was previously used as a workshop but could easily be converted into a gym or cinema room.
The living room has a traditional fireplace and bay French doors that lead out to a quaint mezzanine and the garden. The property also boasts a large entertaining space at the rear.
The property offers a large, extended kitchen/dining area which was completed in 2016. The kitchen itself has bespoke handmade cabinets, leathered granite surfaces and integrated appliances including a dishwasher and wine cooler. The kitchen/dining area is triple aspect with double doors leading to the large terrace and rear garden. It also has three large ‘Velux’ windows filling this beautiful kitchen with plenty of light. There is a central island with bar stools and a bespoke oak banquette seating area that was handmade to fit the kitchen with storage underneath. It also benefits from underfloor heating.
