Full DetailsABOUT 10 LOWER HAGG This unique detached property is of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof and features a wealth of traditional features. We believe that it was originally at least two separate cottages and still retains 2 staircases to this day. It enjoys a much admired location amongst a small cluster of period cottages, converted barns and other high quality homes.
Our client purchased the property circa 1996 and since then has carried out a number of renovations and some redesigning of the internal layout with a great emphasis upon creating varied and flexible living spaces. We do anticipate that buyers may look to redesign some of the layout in order to meet the needs of their own family.
The ground floor of the house can be entered either from a porch to the front or through the side entrance door into the kitchen. The kitchen is of a good size and features a gas fired Aga stove - it is partially open plan to the adjoining dining room which is also a perfect daytime room. From the dining room a door leads into the ground floor living room, with an internal hallway then the study. There is also a large utility room, wine cellar, pantry, downstairs wc and shower room with sauna.
Upstairs there are landing areas from the two staircases which converge into a central landing area. From here you can access what is perhaps the properties most appealing living space - a beautiful sitting room with exposed roof trusses, fireplace and a log burning stove. There is also an upstairs lounge which is of impressive proportions and features sliding doors onto an outside terraced area. This floor also features 3 bedrooms, a large bathroom and shower room. The attic space has been converted to create a large space suitable for use as a teenage bedroom with additional storage spaces.
