About this property

The Engine, originally built in the 17th century with a more recent extension is a Grade II listed, lime-stone, three-bedroom period home. The property is bursting with character throughout and is complemented by beautifully mature gardens and a two-bedroom annex, all located at the heart of Collyweston village.

The ground floor consists of a kitchen, three reception rooms and a study. The kitchen has a range of fitted units with an electric hob, stainless steel sink, space for a dishwasher a window looking out to the garden and a door opening into the conservatory. The conservatory is currently used as a dining space and has French doors opening out to a patio and garden.

The two main reception rooms sit to the front of the property, both with beautiful bay windows. The dining room sits to the middle with exposed stonework, original beams, an AGA, and seating built into the bay window creating a lovely dining area. To one side of the dining room there is a useful study with exposed beams and a door out to the side of the property. To the other side is the sitting room for the property, a cosy room, again with original beams and a fireplace with a log burner inset. An internal hall accessed from the dining room leads to the staircase that rises to the first floor.

To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a single. The principal bedroom has ample storage and windows to two elevations allowing plenty of light. All three bedrooms are served by a spacious family bathroom comprising a bath, separate shower, wash hand basin, bidet, low flush lavatory and heated towel rail.

The present owners have sympathetically refurbished the property during their ownership whilst retaining much of its original charm and period features. A unique feature is the original entrance porch and signpost on the main house, still in place from when it was "The Engine Inn".

The stone-built two-bedroom annex sits detached from the main house. The ground floor offers a dining kitchen with shaker style fitted units and space for a range of appliances. A hallway off the dining kitchen provides access to a bedroom/study and a bathroom. The bathroom comprises a shower bath, wash hand basin, low flush lavatory and heated towel rail. The stairs rise to the first floor where you will find a living room area and a further double bedroom.

The property can be accessed either from the pavement through the front door or via timber double gates to the side leading to a parking area and the rear of garden beyond. The garden itself is wonderfully mature and private with a variety of lawned and paved areas, an ornamental pond, well stocked borders, and an array of specimen trees creating year-round interest. Sitting to in centre position of the garden is a dovecote, originally built in the 18th century. An archway to the side of the dovecote leads through to a further garden area bordered by stone walling and mainly laid to lawn with a raised vegetable garden, further shrubs and trees and a wonderful view of the village church.
