Description 

Bleachfield House dates from 1748 and the cottage followed in 1800, both used in the linen industry.  A bleach field was created in 1752 where linen cloth and thread were bleached. With the decline of the industry in the 19th century the properties were occupied by farm workers until the late 1950’s.  This picture postcard property is in an idyllic rural location and has been sympathetically restored and offers modern living whilst retaining traditional features throughout including wooden beams, wood panelling, real wood flooring, stable style doors and deep display window sills.    The properties are both finished to a high standard and are in walk-in condition.  The double glazing units were replaced in both properties by the current owners.  Both properties have their own separate boilers controlled by a Hive programmer and thermostat, utility supplies and mains water.

Bleachfield House is a two storey four bedroomed property which has been lovingly decorated with bold print wallpapers and opulent soft furnishings.   External wood panelled doors open into both the porch and the utility room.  The entrance porch has velvet upholstered seating and via a wood panelled door accesses the hall leading to the lounge, bedroom 4 and the stairs to the first floor.    The ground floor lounge is a dual aspect room with its focal point being an open fireplace housing a wood burner.  This room has a fitted library style bookcase as well as a large storage cupboard.  The lounge accesses the Jack and Jill bathroom which also opens to ground floor bedroom 3.   The ground floor bathroom is fitted with a three piece white suite consisting of w.c., handbasin and bath with mains shower above.  Both ground floor bedrooms are beautifully decorated with bedroom 4 currently utilized as an office.  The modern dining kitchen has an abundance of wall and base mounted units with real wood worktops.  Inset Neff double electric oven, hob and cooker hood.  Ample space for a dining set.  A large under stair cupboard provides further storage.
