OFFERED FOR SALE WITH NO CHAIN is this fine sandstone stone cottage conveniently located in the heart of the Moulton village Conservation Area, within short walking distance of the local Schools, shops and services within the village.
Believed to date from the late 17th to the early 18th century, the house was formerly called Hopeful house until 1925 when it was renamed Hope House. In the early 1800's it was a school teaching land surveying and a chapel.
In 1829 Hopeful House was sold to Honor Dove and it opened as a grocery store, later the telegraph office and later still the telephone exchange. It remained a commercial property until the 1970's when it once again became a private house for the first time since 1787. This delightful home has been extended and modified over the centuries to now provide a substantial four/five bedroom family home.
The cottage retains many character features, including oak ceiling beams and a stunning stone inglenook fireplace.
It benefits from replacement external windows, which are uPVC, some oak internal doors and extensive re-decoration and new carpets throughout.
The accommodation comprises; entrance hall, reception hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen/breakfast, utility room and a cloakroom to the ground floor.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, two single bedrooms and a family bathroom.
