Ground floor

The main entrance into Rye Fenn takes you into a large reception hall with 15' high vaulted ceiling with part panelled walls and exposed stud work. At the front of the property is a shower room with tiled shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and toilet whilst further doors lead off to the sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room.

The sitting room is a wonderfully proportioned room with at one end a large inglenook fireplace with library recess and shelving for books. There is a wealth of exposed timbers throughout the room with good ceiling height of a minimum of 7'2" high. At the rear of the property is a family room, a wonderfully light room with triple aspect including French doors leading out onto the terrace and again having a focal fireplace and exposed timbers. The kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke country kitchen with wooden work surfaces with cupboards beneath as well as a butler sink and space and plumbing for a dishwasher which we understand will remain. The kitchen has been designed for a variety of freestanding furniture with ample space for a large breakfast table and attractive pamment tiled flooring and door leading out to the terrace. The adjoining utility room is an incredibly useful space housing the Camray3 oil-fired boiler as well as having a 1 1/2 bowl stainless steel sink and drainer with cupboards and drawers under. There is plumbing for a washing machine as well as space for a tumble dryer, freezers etc, hooks for coats.

Rye Fenn has been extended by the current owners linking the existing property to a large living room with an entrance lobby with pamment flooring, door leading through to a hallway and French doors going out onto the terrace. Steps lead up to a multi-purpose impressive living room with maple wood floor and exposed Canadian oak A-frame trusses of nearly 13' high and a wood burning stove. At the southern end of the room is a glazed area with glass vaulted ceiling and triple aspect including doors out to the gardens.

The second bedroom enjoys a dual aspect with countryside views and has two wardrobes as well as eaves storage cupboards, a pedestal wash hand basin with tiled splashback.
