THE PROPERTY

Owlbank is a very attractive and spacious cottage/character style house which was built in 1986 and sympathetically designed in-keeping with the hamlet of Swyre, having part natural stone faced elevations under a slate roof. It is for all intent and purposes detached, although linked to the neighbouring property on the ground floor. The property has been under the current ownership since new, and very well maintained with a whole number of improvements being carried out during this time. The well proportioned accommodation includes useful study on the ground floor which, with its own independent door to the garden as well as access to the sitting room, is ideal for working from home or hobbies.

The accommodation is extensive and versatile, enjoying a sunny and open east/west facing aspect with lovely views over the surrounding countryside and fields. Character style features include part arched windows, stripped pine doors, open fireplace and part vaulted ceilings. The many excellent features include oil fired central heating (boiler replaced in 2019), Everest uPVC sealed unit windows, security shutters, upgrading of the bathroom and shower room, together with extensive fitted wardrobes.

Internally, the accommodation is split level over four floors. On the ground floor is an entrance lobby, hall, cloakroom/utility, dining room, kitchen, conservatory and principle bedroom with ensuite shower room and a short flight of steps lead down to the lower ground floor, with a good sized sitting room with fireplace and adjoining study with its own external door. On the upper floors, there are three further bedrooms, bathroom and landing with study/office area.

The property also benefits from a double garage, and attractive well laid out front and rear gardens, which face west to the rear, and again enjoying the great country views.

OUTSIDE

The double garage is situated adjoining the rear garden, and there are two nearby private parking spaces plus hard standing. There is also a parking area directly adjoining the front of the house.

The house is set well back, and the front gardens are attractively landscaped with stone walling. The rear gardens are good sized and divided into two areas. The main rear garden features a large paved terrace, good-sized lawn and a whole range of shrubs. The second part of the garden beyond the shared driveway includes a greenhouse and small orchard.
