***NEW PRICE*** The Elms is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof and provides spacious and very well-appointed accommodation over three storeys. The front door opens into a vestibule and then into the hallway with stairs to the first floor. To the right is a good-sized reception/dining room. To the left is a wonderful bright sitting room with gas fire. The hallway also gives access to a breakfast room/bedroom, 2 - piece bathroom and a large kitchen. On the first floor there are three bright and spacious bedrooms (one en-suite) and the family bathroom. There are 4 further bedrooms and a box room on the second floor, one is currently used as the home office. Two additional bedrooms rooms have been converted for the 'Catz Hotel', an up market, successful cattery business in high demand. If the purchaser wishes to continue the cattery business, all chattels of the business including goods will be included in the sale. Potential buyers of The Elms should not be deterred as the rooms reserved for the cattery will be converted back into bedrooms by the owners if the new owners do not wish to continue with the business. Overall, the house has a wonderfully bright and welcoming atmosphere with a number of fine features that one would hope to find in a house of this age and quality including original cornicing and tall ceilings. All of the rooms are well proportioned and beautifully presented. The average energy costs of the past three years has been £2600 annually. Many extras included as the owners are moving to Canada.The current owners ran a very successful bed and breakfast for many years before changing to the cattery business.GARDEN Outside, there is a generous, enclosed garden to the rear of the house which is primarily laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees and a sheltered seating area. There is ample space for parking on the gravelled driveway as well as a block built garage and additional outbuildings.
