Built of local iron stone under a slate roof, and thought to date from around the 17th century, Old Red Lion offers well-proportioned accommodation throughout. As the name suggests, it was once a former public house, situated on a no-through village lane.
From the entrance hall can be accessed the good-sized, double aspect drawing room with beamed ceiling, large inglenook fireplace with log burning stove. Part of the room is used as a dining area. The kitchen/breakfast room is a light and airy room with wood wall and base units, integrated fridge freezer, double oven, electric hobs and walk in larder. Ideal for family entertaining with a good outlook across the garden.
Opposite the kitchen, linked via the entrance hall, a rear hallway provides access to the integral garage, utility room and the fabulous garden room. This room has been recently renovated including a slate floor with under floor heating, new cut stone mullion windows with concertina hard wood doors that open to an eating terrace and the garden.
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the landing above. The principal suite includes a large double aspect bedroom with built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. Four further double bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room complete the first floor accommodation.
