Rural Location

The current owners have updated the property over the last few years, transforming this most delightful country property, to be stylishly presented throughout, with wonderful, yet manageable gardens and an adjacent paddock. The accommodation is spacious with well-proportioned rooms that are light and airy.

On entering the property through the gabled timber door is a good size entrance hall, with a vaulted ceiling and a welcoming double-sided wood burner. Being at the heart of the property it leads through to the main reception rooms, the kitchen/breakfast room, the utility room and the cloakroom. Additionally, there is a large access hatch to a spacious and fully boarded/plaster-boarded loft with lighting and power.

The bespoke Neptune kitchen comprises fitted painted oak units, Silestone quartz work surfaces, with built in appliances including a Smeg Range Cooker, Neff microwave and Grohe boiling water tap. It benefits from having a large pantry and inset Smart TV, and a timber stable door leading to the front garden. Heading back through the hall to the original part of the cottage you will find the dining room (which also benefits from the double-sided wood burner) with beams and inset cabinet with display shelves. Further on along the hallway is the sitting room, a light and airy room with a log burner, bay window, and timber French Doors leading to the main garden.

On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has French windows with a Juliet balcony, facing east, overlooking the main garden, and two built-in double wardrobes. There is a Jack and Jill bathroom with a roll-top bath overlooking the beautiful countryside views and large walk in shower. The 3rd bedroom has its own ensuite shower room.

Grounds & Garden

The cottage is situated along a country lane with a number of similar style and sized properties, access to the gravel parking area and garage is to the side of the cottage with a smaller gate further on for pedestrian access to and from the cottage to the parcel of land on the opposite side of the lane (which will be included in the sale).

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with paved seating areas at various points in the garden to make the most of the sun as it moves round the property. A garden shed and greenhouse are positioned towards the rear stone wall. Steps from the main garden lead to a further lawned area which runs along the rear of the plot and in the corner there is a very useful large timber summer house with power and internet which could be used as an office or gym.
