The Oak is a beautiful detached property standing just off the green in the ever popular village of Stoke Row. The house was originally two cottages and then the village pub with an abundance of character, and still retaining many period features whilst providing generous and flexible accommodation, which has been improved and updated over the years.
Stepping into the hallway, one is immediately immersed into a fabulous atmosphere, with exposed beams, panelled walls and brickwork, creating a warm and inviting home.
The ground floor comprises a tiled entrance hallway leading to the sitting room with a "Jetmaster" open fire and fitted cupboards. The generous kitchen breakfast room is the heart of the house, stepping out to the garden. Leading off the kitchen is the inner hallway, through to a separate dining / reception room, a wc/shower room and the back stairs.
Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms and the bathroom accessed from two stairs. The property also benefits from a useful cellar room.
One of the stand out features of The Oak is its beautiful separate barn, which is currently in its original state and is used for workshop, storage and garaging. However, planning has been granted for partial conversion to create a self-contained annexe to the main house. The planning reference is: P21/S5309/HH
This is an area of huge potential, but also for the those looking for space to fettle vehicles or hobby it is already a fantastic facility in its current state.
The front of the house is very pretty, and surrounded by a lawned frontage with mature planting and ample parking on the gravel driveway between the house and the barn.
The rear garden is lovely and very private, enjoying a bright south westerly aspect. Stepping out from the house onto a large paved patio area, leading to a sweeping lawn
