Whitesmocks is a prime property, in an equally beautiful setting, that has undergone a complete refurbishment to enhance its many original features within a stylish modernisation.The work has exposed beams, brick and stonework and original fireplaces to offer plenty of rural character, yet these have been combined with a luxury bathroom, a fabulous country-style kitchen and contemporary décor that s warm and welcoming. Believed to date back the 1700s, making it one of the oldest properties in the sought-after village of Great Stainton, the renovation has brought it very much into the 21st century. A biomass boiler and heating system has been installed providing a tax free income via the feed-in tariff of up to £23,000 over the next five years. Importantly, it ensures a modern and energy efficient central heating system, which is supported elsewhere in the property by a new damp-proof course, rewiring and heritage two-tone windows throughout.From new ceilings to Karndean parquet-effect herringbone flooring in the hall and dining room and solid oak panelled doors with some handcrafted ironmongery, no stone has been left unturned in creating a truly beautiful home.The ground floor living accommodation is spacious and bright, beginning with the hall that leads straight through the house to the private garden at the back. To the left of the hallway is a small cloakroom and to the right is a dining room, with a stove in a brick inglenook and alcove book shelves, which is conveniently open plan to the breakfasting kitchen. Here, the cream units are complemented by black granite worktops, a black range cooker and travertine flooring. Both these rooms have views front and back. A back door from the kitchen leads out to the stone patio for outdoor dining, sheltered by a hedge.
