Original features include; your own private entrance leading to a bright sunny interior, exposed stone and brick work, tongue and groove wainscoting, original old quarry floor tiles with reclaimed pitch pine floorboards throughout. A Jib door leads to a sheltered patio area, BBQ and garden. The Garden Rooms have been fitted with modern facilities including wood burning stove, central heating, dish washer, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer, electric hob, oven and microwave, flat screen television, DVD player, wireless broadband internet and much more
What makes this chateau / country house unique
Set on the site of an old mill and millrace, Beamond is a fine example of a Georgian Period House with beautiful fine plaster work ceilings and chandeliers.
