About this property
Charity House, originally built in the 1600's, is an enchanting ironstone, five-bedroom village home offering substantial accommodation and oozing with character, all sitting on a wonderful plot surrounded by its own gardens with stunning countryside views.
Charity House is a superb village home comprising five reception rooms, a large dining kitchen, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The property sits on the most magnificent plot, nestled into the heart of Somerby village.
The kitchen is a traditional farmhouse style with a quarry tiled floor, exposed timber beams, stonework and stone million windows. There are a great range of units, an oil-fired AGA, electric oven and hob, integrated dishwasher, double Belfast sink, space for fridge freezers and a door out to the rear patio. A utility room sits just off the kitchen with a secondary sink and ample storage.
To the north end of the property there are three reception rooms, the lounge and dining room both have fireplaces, the lounge with a wood burning stove and the dining room with an open fire. A hallway leading off the lounge provides access to a spacious study and the downstairs cloakroom. To the south end of the property there are two further reception rooms, one being the formal living room, a superb space with generous proportions and a beautiful stone fireplace with a timber hearth and wood burner inset. Double doors open from here into the conservatory that has French doors opening out to the patio and garden beyond.
There are two staircases, one located next to the study that leads to a large bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom providing a great area to be used as a master suite. The second staircase rises from the lounge to a generous landing giving access to a further four bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room. Bedrooms two and three are large double rooms both with windows taking in the wonderful countryside views. Bedrooms four and five, still generously sized rooms with high ceilings creating a sense of space. These four bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and a shower room.
The property is approached through timber double gates at the very end of Chapel Lane. The gates open onto a large driveway with ample parking and access to the detached double garage. The garage has up and over doors, ample storage on the first-floor level and a designated workshop and storage area. The garden for the property surrounds it on all sides, made up of a combination of lawns, mature borders and specimen trees, intercepted by paths. There are also a variety of cleverly positioned patios designed to take advantage of the sun throughout the entirety of the day.
Charity House is a property of exceptional quality and one where the historic character features including the exposed timber beams, exposed stonework and stone mullion windows, are embraced and showcased throughout. It is certainly a property that must be viewed to be appreciated and is offered to the market with agent's highest recommendation.
