Yardington, Whitchurch


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Of course, it's the name that gives it away. This iconic landmark building was once one of Whitchurch's many fine hostelries and no doubt served a good pint, although goodness knows how many people fell down those stone steps?!

Anyway, wind the clock forward and what we have today is a deceptively spacious semi detached house, with many of the original beams and features (including the cellars where the beer barrels were stored).

It has an awful lot going for it, in the fact that it is within walking distance of the town centre, yet it also provides off-road parking for a couple of cars and has a secluded, well stocked garden.

However, that is only half the story and at this price, you can see that there is more to this than meets the eye. To be honest, it isn't perfect and you will undoubtedly feel that you will want to spend some money on it, bringing it into the twenty first century, despite the fact that the current owner has added a new central heating boiler, installed 2 multi-fuel stoves (with flue liners) and re-tiled the main roof in recent years.

The kitchen and bathroom, both of which are undeniably spacious, certainly need refitting (unless you are a great fan of 'pampas' bathroom suites) and most rooms would certainly benefit from a lick of paint. There is an open plan accommodation layout downstairs (typical of a pub) and with so many exposed timber beams, this really does ensure a cosy feel. In addition, there is a separate study, a downstairs WC in the cloakroom, the aforementioned sizeable kitchen and a separate utility room.

Upstairs, all three bedrooms are doubles and the rear bedroom in particular, is huge.

Outside, the well stocked garden is a sheltered sun trap and is enclosed for the safety of children and pets.

In summary, it's hard to argue why someone would not want to live here, albeit it does need a bit of money spending on it.
