DESCRIPTION Holmpark dates to circa 1817 and was constructed from locally sourced granite. The current owner purchased the property in 2008 and has extensively renovated the property to a high standard and now includes solar roof panels, contributing to the running costs of Holmpark. The stunning country breakfast kitchen / dining and soft seating area has been opened up providing an attractive sociable gathering space at the heart of the home, with French doors opening directly to the garden. The kitchen is an ideal entertaining kitchen space with a large kitchen Island with well thought out storage spaced, sink and electric points. There is a modern induction hob, built in oven and microwave, integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher. In the utility room there is an under counter drinks fridge and Belfast style sink. With a separate utility room providing additional functional space. The space benefits from having under floor heating and towards the dining area plus a welcomed addition of a woodburning stove for the cooler evenings. Directly off the utility room is the rear porch with seating and storage. The living room incorporates an entertainment wall with recessed T.V. ambient lighting and hidden speakers. An open fire creates a cosy atmosphere to settle down, relax and unwind. The study as it is currently used, serves perfectly and could accommodate someone requiring dedicated space or a home office to facilitate home working but could easily adapt to serve the needs of the new purchaser. The sweeping staircase leads to the first floor landing where you will find four very well-appointed double bedrooms. The first having a walk-in shower enclosure and full-sized bath, W.C. and wash hand basin. The second bedroom has a separate W.C. with basin. Then within the room a roll top bath which looks out over the garden and trees allowing you a relaxing view while you sink into a deep and relaxing bath. The master bedroom and fourth bedroom share a Jack and Jill style shower room with a generous walk-in shower, wash hand basin and W.C. The fifth bedroom is located via separate stairs above the utility room and could be used as a further guest bedroom or office space.
