Appleby is part of an elegant gothic style, Grade II Listed manor house thought to date back to the 1800's and separated into three dwellings just after the second world war. The property was lovingly refurbished by the current owners over the last 20 years maintaining the character and unique features typical of a property of this age and history, including high ceilings, wooden floors and large stone mullion leaded windows and some with folding panelled internal shutters.

The accommodation is across three floors, providing flexibilities for family living. The main entrance to the front is through an entrance hall with a flagstone floor and door through to the boot room and adjoining utility, including a stainless-steel sink unit and space for a washing machine. From the boot room, a door opens through to the spacious kitchen/family room comprising a range of cupboards, Belfast sink and a large central island with slate worksurface and inset electric hob. From the kitchen, there is a study/ fourth bedroom and a shower room with white suite comprising shower, WC, hand basin and towel rail.

The first floor consists of two large receptions rooms with beautiful stone mullion windows flooding the rooms with light, whilst creating a fantastic space for every day family life. On the second floor is a large hallway leading to the three good sized bedrooms and family bathroom, comprising a white suite with roll top bath and shower over, WC and wash hand basin with cupboards below.


The property is approached over a private road with a private driveway opening to the parking area with a detached timber garage with workshop space and stairs up to a useful store. The garden is a predominantly laid to lawn with mature hedge boundaries and a path leading to the house. In total the property extends to just under 0.25 acres.
