Magdalen House, originally built in 1879 as a village Reading Room, has been transformed into a charming residential property that maintains its original character, with pleasing mellow red brick elevations, under a pitched slate roof. This well-proportioned house features many period features pine framed windows, doors, exposed floorboards, and fireplaces. Particular notice is drawn to the high floor to ceiling height at ground floor and first floor level, further accentuating the feelings of space and light. In latter years the house has been significantly extended at the rear, adding valuable and versatile space such as the kitchen/breakfast room, rear hall, and study with utility area and cloakroom. This extension also allows for the possibility of using the study as an additional bedroom, complementing the three existing double bedrooms on the first floor.
