An old-school sign to one side of the house reads ‘Grocery and Provisions’, but inside it’s a charming and character filled home.

Although it has been fully renovated, the interior has been thoughtfully decorated to keep with the country-style theme, with features including original sash windows, timber wall panelling and tiled floors.

The kitchen and dining room is particularly appealing, with duck egg blue cabinets and exposed shelving, terracotta tiled floors and room for a dining table to seat six.

There are two living areas in the property, with an open fireplace in one and a solid fuel-burning stove in the other. The stove is particularly impressive thanks to its inset design and exposed stone surround, making for the perfect spot to curl up in front of on cold winter nights.

Maximising every square foot of space, a study/working area has been set up beside the staircase. This is right beside the stove, undoubtedly making long days working from home a little easier. A bathroom/utility room completes the ground floor accommodation.
