It also has the advantage of an integral, completely self-contained cottage currently named Lacy House Cottage, making this an attractive purchase, priced at £499,950.

Both properties have gas central heating, large picture windows and retain a wealth of features. They are full of character.

The majority of Lacy House itself has double glazing and it boasts many delightful features.

On the ground floor a spacious dining kitchen has an exposed beam to the ceiling, a loft hatch and a storage pantry with further access to a separate WC.

The grand reception hall, which features a dog-leg staircase and a large arched picture window to the half turn on the stairs, has a date marker of 1793 - this wonderful house has history - and more stairs lead to the lower ground floor storage cellar.

One reception room is currently used as a study, while another, with windows to the side and back and a corniced ceiling, makes another stylish, welcoming room.

The magnificent living room has windows to front and side, providing plenty of natural light.

It has a cornice and dado rail while the focal point of the room is a large decorative fire surround set to the chimney breast with a multi-fuel stove set within.

The storage cellar mentioned earlier has vaulted ceilings and these rooms are currently used for storage and as a wine cellar.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, a focal point of the main one being a stone fireplace and hearth with a multi-fuel stove set within. There is also a shower room, bathroom and separate WC.

The attic is accessed via stairs from the first floor and has three separate areas with Venetian arch windows to the side.

Lacy House Cottage has a kitchen and living room on the first floor, where a landing leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Lacy House benefits from extensive split-level well-maintained gardens with patio seating, a workshop and storage sheds.

It has off-road parking and an additional field with vegetable plots, orchards and grazing.

Both units have all mains services, but Lacy House also benefits from its own spring water supply and has a roof-mounted panel for hot water.
