From the entrance hall a doorway leads through to the dining room. With antique brick flooring and original oak beam to the ceiling the dining room is totally in character. There is a stone fireplace with raised stone flagged hearth all being home for an open fired grate. The delightful window with a window seat beneath has a lovely view out over the gardens. Doorway from here leads through to the sitting room.
In some respects this is a secondary kitchen and has a view out onto the courtyard. Twin bowl stainless steel sink, integrated fridge, plumbing for automatic washing machine, quarry tile flooring and a further door leads back to the entrance hall.
A door from the kitchen leads up six steps to the Study/Playroom. This corridor has storage cupboards and shelving, three windows with a view over the garden and a terracota riled floor. There is a PANTRY, COAL HOUSE and BOILER ROOM leading off the corridor. At the head of the corridor is the study/playroom. A back entrance door leads into the courtyard.
A doorway from the study/playroom could lead through to the inner lobby shown on the floorplan which in turn could give access to the double guest bedroom and the large guest ensuite
Off the corridor previously described a doorway leads through to a pantry. With window to the courtyard side and further door gives access to a coal store with window to the courtyard side and a doorway gives access to the boiler room being home for the oil fired boiler. This boiler room is of a particularly good size and is used as a boot room and there is an external door out to the courtyard which is located nearby (see floor layout plan).
FIRST FLOOR LANDING
This is fitted with a low level w.c., large shower cubicle and fitted wash hand basin.
The house bathroom is of such a substantial size that it could be divided to create a fourth bedroom on the first floor level and still provide a good sized house bathroom. Please see the floor layout plan which demonstrates this suggestion.
POSSIBLE BEDROOM FOUR/FURTHER PLAYROOM DESCRIPTION
Please note the study/playroom on the ground floor level could easily accommodate additional space for this to be part converted into a fourth bedroom and indeed there is scope within the property throughout for a rejigging of accommodation that could accommodate many different features if so desired.
The outbuildings for Lower Crawshaw can only be described as remarkable. Adjoining the study/playroom are two loose boxes of a similar size and stature in terms of roof heights and depth. They have stable doors to the courtyard. There are five loose boxes including the two mentioned above.
Perhaps best described by the floor layout plans attached.
Garage with sliding door, once again with stone flagged flooring.
Two open fronted former implement stores also acting as covered garaging/wood stores.
Large stable with stable door opening onto the courtyard.

BARN FOUR (THIS IS AN ORIGINAL THRESHING BARN)
This beautiful very tall barn has two stone archways opposite each other and is currently access to the home through the beautiful pair of stone arches with stone flagged floor. There is a double height storage area which is particularly impressive to view which at one time would have been for the storage of hay/fodder. The barn incorporates a stable previously mentioned and has a further attached implement store/barn to the top yard side. This with cast-iron supporting posts. All is of a pleasing design. Barn four has a loft room over part of it (please see floor layout plan).

Barn one, two and three all have loft space which have good ceiling heights, windows and are presented to a good standard throughout. Having been used by the family as home storage/workshop space for many years. To the rear of barns two and three there is the old stack yard which is where cattle were housed in more recent times. There is a large building which could be renovated to provide a huge amount of further storage space.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The gardens and grounds are beautifully presented and as one approaches the farmhouse down the lane, the paddock on the right hand side is included in the sale. The good sized one and a half acre paddock complements the house and has been grazed for many years. The paddock adjoins the gardens and grounds, which have been exeptionally well cared for. The gardens are perhaps best showcased by the photographs but comprise lawns, topiary, flower beds , a small orchard and a walled kitchen garden.
Located in the heart of beautiful countryside it should be noted that there is a public footpath running through the lower part of the orchard. There is also a natural stream giving into two ponds running through the property.
