Delightful Grade II listed, detached residence, dating back to the 16th century and believed to be the oldest surviving property in the sought-after village of Stratford St. Mary.
Located along Upper Street, within walking distance of the Post Office and The Swan and The Anchor public houses, Gatemans is a delightful period property with character features throughout - including leaded light windows, exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces. Enjoying views across the garden, the dual-aspect dining room offers an impressive inglenook fireplace, and exposed beams and stripped wood flooring add further period charm to this reception room. The living room also features an imposing inglenook fireplace, this time with a multi-fuel stove fitted, ideal for those cooler evenings. The adjacent country-style kitchen benefits from a traditional AGA and the room is complemented by a useful utility room, offering space for additional appliances. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation. From the entrance hall, the solid wood staircase leads to three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor; the well-proportioned master bedroom enjoys the benefit of an en-suite shower room. On the landing, hidden behind a door, a second staircase leads to the attic room. Outside, the south-facing garden, to the side of the property is partly enclosed by a brick wall and is well stocked with mature trees and shrubs.
