Unique is a term that is often used in property - everyone's home is their castle after all! However, in the case of this property, every element has been meticulously hand crafted by the owner, repaired, or replaced. Their efforts have created a stunning 'warehouse-style' home making superb use of the space and providing a stylish property or pied-a-terre. The home offers the character of an older property with the reassurance of having a new roof, windows, boiler, plumbing & electrics and underfloor heating.

Approaching the property on foot down a quiet lane, you enter a walled courtyard which provides a private outside space for sitting out or for firewood and bike storage etc.

Entering the home the bespoke nature of the property is immediately apparent. Exposed brick walls, polished concrete floors (with underfloor heating), custom cabinetry and a floating oak and steel staircase with stainless steel 'net' balustrade are just some of the features of the property.

On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms at either end of the house, each with the aforementioned polished concrete floors. Larch skirting with a subtle shadow gap show an attention to detail rarely seen. This is also evident in the custom sliding doors which are fitted throughout the house. Wooden sash windows feature re-claimed joists from the building as their sills. Between the two bedrooms is a family bathroom which has a hand crafted and poured concrete bath with slate tiling around and wall mounted taps. There is a heated towel rail and custom shelving and storage.

Upstairs, the open plan kitchen/dining room has a vaulted ceiling with open rafters and joists. Velux skylights allow ample natural light. Sanded larch floorboards run throughout the first floor. This living area features a woodburning stove on a slate hearth.

The kitchen is again, entirely bespoke. Crafted and designed out of birch ply with unique slanted, wall mounted cabinets. The matching base cabinetry has an inset Bosch oven and space for separate undercounter fridge and freezers. The cast concrete worktop has a double inset Belfast sink and a superb integrated gas hob. A slate backsplash and commercial style mixer tap complete the look.

At the far end of the first floor is a living room or third bedroom which features a custom sliding door and refurbished window sills etc with the added benefit of the vaulted ceiling.

There is a family shower room next to the bedroom with a walk-in tiled shower, wall hanging sink, w/c and more custom cabinetry and storage.

This home is a stylish and one-off property which would be a fantastic holiday let or home for a couple or small family.

Please note, the property does not have any parking facilities however there is plenty of on-street parking nearby as well as three car parks within walking distance. Further, day to day facilities are readily accessible on foot with the town centre at the top of the road.
