Originally constructed in the 17th century, the property has undergone comprehensive remodelling and renovation to create the stunning home that stands today. Every step within the property reveals another attractive element, with beautiful interior decor that marries traditional touches with high quality contemporary finishes. The Maltings is truly one of a kind. The intriguing and unique layout of The Maltings incorporates living accommodation across five floors, with another level for garaging. The front door opens into the ground floor of the oldest part of the original house. The entrance hall boasts solid oak flooring and a beamed ceiling that set the tone for the property. The sitting room has a dual aspect, window seats, beamed ceiling and a magnificent stone fireplace housing a woodburning stove. There are two upper floors within this old part of the house. The first floor has a light and airy double bedroom featuring a fireplace with gas-fired stove and a mighty timber mantel. An elegant adjacent bathroom has half-panelled walls and a suite comprising roll top clawfoot bath, wash hand basin and WC. The second floor has two further bedrooms, each with characterful beams supporting the vaulted ceilings. These bedrooms are served by a shower room. Returning to the entrance hall, stairs lead down to the lower ground floor of the old house and the delightful country house style kitchen. Hand-made bespoke cabinetry supports granite worksurfaces with an abundance of storage, Belfast sink and a range of discreet appliances. The central island has a contrasting wood work surface. The centrepiece is a grand Falcon range cooker with two ovens and five hobs, set within a decorative tiled recess. An open archway leads through to the spectacular dining room/garden room with soaring pitched roof and glazing climbing to the full height of the gable end. Swathes of natural light pour into the room to highlight oak flooring and a woodburning stove keeps the open space warm and cosy. Another staircase leads from the dining room/garden room down to a lower hall with access out to the rear courtyard. This level is home to a huge guest suite with a vast bedroom and shower room. The bedroom has exposed beams to the vaulted ceiling and a glazed door out to an elevated decked veranda that overlooks the walled garden below. The shower room is superbly appointed in a boutique style, with walk-in rainfall shower, wash hand basin and WC all surrounded by half-panelled walls in heritage palettes. This floor could be utilised as a private annexe for a dependent relative, demonstrating the versatility of The Maltings. Below the living levels is a utility linking to the integral garaging. The double garage has electric doors, power and water with lots of storage space and a door out to the lower gardens. Externally A gated entrance at the lowest level leads to a gravelled parking area with space for several vehicles and access to the double garage. Stone steps from the parking area climb to the guest suite level and access to the lower hall. Beautifully maintained gardens are positioned to the south and west elevations, forming a variety of distinct areas, including a walled garden with manicured lawn and a host of thriving colourful plant species. Terraced areas wrap around the rising levels of the house, all displaying vivid and radiant plantings, along with a mix of quiet spots to escape in peace, or to entertain family and friends.
