Eldon House is an historic and well-known property in the older, original part of Heighington, England's perfect village .Grade II listed, the handsome six-seven bedroom house stands in 1.33 acres and comes with a self-contained adjoining apartment making it ideal for a multi-generation family.It has previously provided bed and breakfast accommodation so also offers business potential.Set back off quiet East Green, it is a short walk to two dining pubs, the church, village hall, shops and the primary school, with countryside walks on the doorstep. A quintessential English period home in the village described in a 2006 BBC programme as the most perfect in the country, Eldon House offers the chance to lay down roots and create a home in which to make your own family's history. As might be expected in a detached property of this scale, the three reception rooms are all an excellent size and comprise a dining room, a living room and sitting room, all filled with plenty of natural light.Original doors, sliding sash windows, cornicing and timber floors are among the numerous original features.The kitchen, although a good size, has potential to extend and benefits from a separate walk-in larder. It has a beamed ceiling, feature tiled floor and an Aga.A boot room and laundry are highly desirable features in a large family home, while steps lead down from here to a cellar and wine store. Beyond, there is access to the single storey apartment which comprises a large living room, a separate kitchen, a shower room and a good size, dual aspect double bedroom with French doors opening into the garden. Built in the days where large homes housed staff as well as family, features like twin staircases now provide a practical solution to traversing the building. They lead, at either end, to the six double bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities, and two family bathrooms. Those bedrooms without en suites boast basins, and built-in wardrobes, and cupboards abound.
