THE PROPERTY

Those living within the beautiful Bride Valley are familiar with the stunning scenery, with many properties boasting a room with a view, yet few are so perfectly placed to enjoy the glorious vista as Offley. Situated in a peaceful, slightly elevated location opposite open countryside, the property is orientated to take full advantage of a truly magnificent outlook with most of the principal rooms featuring windows to the front. Having been under the current ownership for the majority of its 30 year lifespan, Offley has been carefully looked with recent improvements including new windows and doors, upgraded bathroom and ensuite and a recently replaced central heating boiler, maintaining the property's universal appeal and ability to suit a broad variety of lifestyles.

 

Internally, the accommodation is arranged in a simple, classical layout with a sense of space and natural light throughout. On the ground floor there are two charming reception rooms, both with sliding glass doors leading directly into the rear garden and fantastic Chestnut solid wood flooring, whilst the sitting room enjoys a stone open fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with traditional solid wood units and a terracotta Fired Earth tiled floor, creating a farmhouse atmosphere which is continued into the utility/boot room where there is plumbing for laundry facilities and a cloakroom. From the dining hall, an elegant staircase rises past a large window to the wide and light landing from which each of the four bedrooms can be accessed, along with the family bathroom which has been attractively refurbished to a coastal-themed specification. The principal bedroom is of particular note, owing to its generous proportions and ensuite shower room with Travertine tiles to the floor and walls, whilst bedroom 2 benefits from ample fitted wardrobes.

OUTSIDE

Offley benefits from well stocked yet easily maintained front and rear gardens which permit a highly desirable outdoor lifestyle without the need for dedication. In the rear garden, the large, mature apple tree is a particular feature, and gates to both sides of the property ensure that this area is fully enclosed, ensuring security for children and dogs. Parking is well provided for on a gated driveway which gives access to the detached garage.

BED AND BREAKFAST BUSINESS

The owner has been successfully running a Bed and Breakfast business for the past 12 years with a 4 Star AA rating.
