Description

This pretty cottage believed to date back to the mid 1800's has been beautifully renovated by the current owners to provide well presented family accommodation. A covered open fronted porchway with a panelled entrance door with leaded light insets leads through to the beamed hallway which has Indian slate flooring and a fireplace with a multi fuel stove. There is a separate cloakroom with a wooden floor and beamed ceiling and off the hallway there is a boot room area which has tiled underfloor heating and a stable door to the rear of the property. The adjacent utility room has an Indian slate floor, fitted cupboards and a well-designed flush recess for the washing machine and drier above. The sitting room is spacious and light with windows overlooking the garden to the front and patio to the side and has a feature brick fireplace with a honed granite hearth, wooden mantel and a Morso multifuel stove. Adjoining the sitting room is the garden room which is a fabulous entertaining space and has a painted wooden floor, lovely views overlooking the terrace and the garden and also a door to the terrace. There is also exposed feature brick walling and a useful walk in storage cupboard. The breakfast kitchen has engineered oak flooring, elm ceiling beams and an excellent range of fitted units with granite worktops and a Franke one and a half sink unit and drainer and mixer tap together with a Rangemaster range cooker with a gas hob and extractor over, recess with Samsung fridge freezer and a Neff integral dishwasher.

From the hallway an oak tread and balustraded staircase leads to the first floor landing which has access to the roof space, recess downlighting and an airing cupboard with shelving. The master bedroom has views to the front of the property and fitted wardrobes and a fully tiled ensuite shower room with a rainwater shower and electric underfloor heating. There are three further bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom which has a recently re-enamelled cast iron bath and a walk-in fully tiled jet shower.

Gardens and grounds

Access to the property is through double wooden electric gates to a large parking and turning area with a barked border with shrubs. A flight of steps with attractive shrub planting and a lawned area to each side lead up to double gates which open onto a paved area to the front of the property which has a raised herb border and wisteria and hop clad trellising which separates this area from the south facing patio. This is a real sun trap and being part walled is private and secluded. A flight of steps with a paved pathway and brick built pillars leads up to the outbuildings and the enclosed lawned garden which is fenced and dog proof and has part beech hedging, fruit trees and a magnificent gingko tree known for its florescent yellow flowering leaves.

An additional gravelled garden to the side of the property by the roadside provides an additional seating area and access to the cellar which has double doors, a quarry tiled floor, a cold water tap with a Belfast sink and the Worcester LPG gas fired boiler. A further driveway from the parking area leads up to the paddock and outbuildings/garaging which is part floodlit and terminates at an additional large parking area. The outbuildings now predominantly used as garaging were formerly used as stables and have water and electric connected and could easily be converted back to stabling if required. A separate access opens into the home office which has double doors to outside, air conditioning and electric heating and a sink with a mixer tap. There is an adjacent store and a separate cloakroom which is currently not connected to the drainage. There is potential for this area to be converted to a self-contained annexe. The paddock is fully secure and has three gated accesses as well as a pedestrian gate.
