Originally a pair of houses linked to the neighbouring historic manor house, believed to date from the 17th century, and now featuring an 18th century frontage, Boswell House is an attractive part-cobbled and tile hung townhouse offering almost 3,900 square feet of attractive accommodation arranged over three floors and offers potential for further development of the extensive loft space to provide further accommodation. Sensitively renovated to provide an ideal family and entertaining space, the property combines the amenities of modern living with retained character features including sash windows, some exposed beams, a wealth of exposed wooden flooring, cast iron radiators...

and original fireplaces. The ground floor accommodation flows from a spacious yet welcoming reception hall with an open fireplace flanked on each side by bespoke shelving and comprises a generous reception room with an exposed brick open fireplace and a well-proportioned dining room, also with an open fireplace. There is also an extensive 25 foot family/sitting room with double-height vaulted ceiling with exposed A-frame beams, a freestanding woodburning stove and an en suite cloakroom/wet room, French doors to the garden terrace and numerous sky lanterns that flood the room with natural light. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a range of Shaker-style wall and base units, wooden worktops, Belfast sink, cornflower blue Aga, and a useful neighbouring fitted utility room/larder. The property also benefits from two generous cellars, suitable for a variety of uses. Accessible over two staircases rising from the reception hall and kitchen/breakfast room, the first floor provides four large bedrooms, all with feature fireplaces and one currently configured as a study/library, together with a family bathroom with freestanding bath, a family shower room and separate cloakroom. The second floor is home to the spacious principal bedroom suite with fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom with freestanding rolltop bath and to a sixth bedroom. Stairs rise from the second floor landing to extensive loft space featuring two rooms extending in total to approximately 42 feet in length, suitable for conversion into additional accommodation ifrequired. Having plenty of kerb appeal, Boswell House has a side driveway leading to a block-paved courtyard area which provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to a large detached barn/garage. Extending to around 120 feet, the well-maintained walled garden to the rear of the property is laid mainly to level lawn bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds and features a wide range of mature trees, numerous seating areas, a charming garden store and a spacious block-paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
