PROPERTY An important Grade II Listed house in the heart of the sought-after village of Botesdale.
Dating from the mid seventeenth century and then adapted and extended in the twentieth century, Pantiles played a significant part in village life for many years as The Queens Head public house. The conversion to a home has been done so seamlessly that there is very little evidence of the property's former guise. Throughout the house there is a wealth of period features and exposed timbers creating a warm and convivial feeling. The current vendors have upgraded the house and it is now superbly presented throughout. The front door opens to a reception hall which has is being used as a reading snug. There is an impressive staircase to the first floor. There is a double aspect sitting room with superb inglenook fireplace and bressummer beam. French doors open to the rear. There is a dining room at the centre of the ground floor linking the reception space with the impressive double aspect and comprehensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room. There is the added benefit of a shower room on the ground floor.
The upper floors are very versatile and the rooms can be adapted to suit a variety of needs. There is a vaulted bedroom to the rear of the first floor that the vendor uses as sitting room overlooking the garden. There are two interconnecting bedrooms on the second floor which would make an ideal space for a teenager.
There is a five-bar gate to the side of Pantiles leading to a large gravel driveway providing parking for several cars together with a double open cart lodge. There is a detached outbuilding currently used as a laundry room. The rear gardens have been a labour of love for the vendors and are a delightful feature being established with a wide array of mature trees and shrubs offering seclusion and privacy in the heart of the village. There is an excellent and versatile garden room that can be used for a variety of purposes. Immediately to the rear of the house is a large paved terrace which is perfect for entertaining.
