ago when it came up for sale.

The 90-year-old owner had lived there all his life and the house was in need of ren­o­va­tion.

The Wal­tons took the op­por­tu­nity to add a large ex­ten­sion and tack­led ev­ery­thing from roofing, re-plumb­ing and rewiring to re­dec­o­rat­ing and in­stalling a new kitchen and bath­rooms.

Es­tate agent An­drew Bead­nall says: “This is an ex­cep­tion­ally rare op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase one of the area’s finest fam­ily homes in a stun­ning semi-ru­ral lo­ca­tion.”

The prop­erty now has a re­cep­tion hall, cloak­room and WC., sit­ting room, snug/fam­ily room, study, be­spoke living kitchen with wal­nut units and in­te­grated ap­pli­ances and a util­ity room and store. Up­stairs, there is a a master suite with bed­room, dress­ing room and en­suite bath­room, a guest bed­room with en-suite shower room, three fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms and a house bath­room.

The prop­erty is ap­proached by a grav­elled drive­way lead­ing to ex­ten­sive park­ing. There are large lawned gar­dens set within stone bound­ary walls and beyond are level pad­docks with road ac­cess. In to­tal, the grounds ex­tend to 5.5 acres.

Dan and Sharon are selling to take on an­other project.

“This is the long­est we have stayed any­where but we en­joy hav­ing a prop­erty project, which is why we are mov­ing.”

The house is in the lit­tle known con­ser­va­tion area of old Bard­sey vil­lage and is ad­ja­cent to the duck pond and set in pri­vate grounds.
