    Description
    The Old Bakery is an attractive detached period home which was formerly the village bakery offering upper tile elevations which complement the brickwork and believed to date back to circa 1660.   The door to the bake oven is still in situ on an external flank wall to the neighbouring Heath Stores.   The impressive sitting room boasts a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams with the addition of six windows which floods light into this space creating  a room to accommodate all seasons.  There is a new bathroom fitted to the ground floor and a 'Jack and Jill' cloakroom serving the main bedroom and bedroom two.  The kitchen/breakfast room offers a cottage kitchen to include remnants of an original bake oven below the double oven.  A long breakfast bar with cupboards above is separated from the kitchen workspace, the kitchen itself offers an array of cupboards with space for white goods and stable door to the side garden.  Separate dining area off of the hallway and door to garage which could easily be converted, subject to relevant planning, to further living accommodation.   There are two lovely seating areas to take advantage of, one to the side and one to the front.  The front offers a south facing orientation.  Viewing - strongly advised.
