An impressive Grade Two Listed house, situated within the heart of the historic and sought after Market Town of Hatherleigh and the local amenities it has to offer.
Formerly a Coaching Inn known as the Green Dragon, the property was re built c1800 following a fire and to this day, retains a wealth of original features and charm throughout.
This substantial character home offers spacious and versatile accommodation over three floors with the potential to re arrange as you see fit.
To the ground floor there is a grand entrance hall with original front door and pull bell, with interesting arched openings and stripped pine doors leading to three of the reception rooms which include a living room with grand fireplace and original sash windows with working shutters, a sitting room of similar dimensions, again with fireplace and decorative architraves and cornicing, and a dining room with stone fireplace with solid fuel Rayburn inset and stripped wood floors. The entrance hall opens to an inner hallway where there is direct access to the kitchen which in turn flows to the dining room and where beyond, there is a hobbies room with first floor office or occasional bedroom above. The main feature in the inner hall, in our opinion, is the superb split staircase with hand made Georgian turned handrail and newel post, with split and full galleried landings. There is also a useful cloakroom on the ground floor.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, each accessed via architectural beaded archways, at the half landing there is a large inner hallway and family bathroom.
On the second floor, there is another double bedroom and easy access to loft storage.
Outside, there is an original cobbled courtyard offering ample parking with useful access and direct access to the walled garden. In addition to the parking, there is a large pitched roof covered parking area and a further outbuilding which is currently used as a timber store/workshop. The driveway for the property is extensive and offers an alternative pedestrian access to the gardens and five-bar gated entrance where it begins. There are three neighbouring properties which share the benefit of use of the driveway and therefore also contribute to its upkeep.
The gardens themselves are slightly raised on two level tiers and as mentioned there is an historic stone wall boundary and mature hedge boundaries, there are paths and inviting slate steps with wrought iron gated access directly from the courtyard.
In conclusion, for those looking for lots of space or perhaps to open and run a Bed & Breakfast or similar business, we feel this home if perfectly suited owning to the abundance of parking and the adaptable nature of the accommodation.
