Full Description

Thought to have originated as one of a pair of farm workers' cottages, this beautiful family home has been sympathetically extended both retaining and enhancing its charm.

With off-road parking, the original car port to the side has been transformed to create a superb outdoor eating, working, and living area. Privacy fencing to the front and natural light flooding through the opaque roof covering.

The main entrance hall is accessed through a side porch, (although the original front door remains to retain the pretty cottage façade). Steps lead down from the entrance hall to the sitting room, with its attractive exposed beams, large Inglenook fireplace and inset wood burning stove. Attractive polished flagstones extend into the second reception area, offering a great quiet and comfortable space for reading, use as a home office or indeed a bar as the current occupiers have in the past!
A handy hatch opens into the sitting room, as well as an adjacent store area currently used as a cellar.

The kitchen dining room extends the full width of the home providing a wonderful family space, with a beautiful, handcrafted bespoke pine fitted kitchen to one end and space for a large dining table to the other end. An impressive 'Everhot' range oven warms this superb entertaining space, with an adjacent gas hob for convenience and there is an attractive double butler sink.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor accessed via a split staircase, the pretty galleried landing providing space for a desk if required. The main bedroom has a superb vaulted and beamed ceiling as well as a lovely dual aspect. An exposed red brick chimney breast running up through the room, accentuates the cottage's delightful features.

With a large enclosed and well-stocked rear garden, your peaceful life in the country could certainly commence here; with a fine selection of fruit trees, a vegetable patch, and an attractive flagstone terrace to relax and entertain friends during the spring and summer months.  

Entrance Hall
Solid wooden door with glazed insert to side. An attractive split staircase leads up to a galleried landing. Space for hanging coats and shoes. 

Sitting Room
A beautiful room to entertain and relax, with polished flagstone flooring, rustic exposed brick, beam and stone walls, and large Inglenook fireplace with beamed mantle and inset wood burning stove. Original front door and window providing ample natural light. 

With feature half height hatch opening to the sitting room, the separating brick and beam walls offer an inclusive yet private area to relax away from the sitting room. A handy undercroft store area links between the kitchen and this room, currently serving as a great cellar space. 

Kitchen Dining Room
A wonderful dual aspect family room, the heart of the home. With ample space for a large dining table and a wealth of storage. An attractive rustic terracotta tiled floor extends the length of the room, with a natural carved wooden breakfast bar defining the kitchen area from the dining space. 

Garden Room
An oak framed conservatory provides an additional seating area to further extend the entertaining space, with dwarf brick walls, wooden floorboards and French doors that lead out to the garden.  

First Floor
Galleried landing. 

Bedroom 1
A delightful room with an impressive, vaulted ceiling and exposed beam framework. Dual aspect, with a handy mezzanine storage area. 

Bedroom 2
Set to the rear of the home with independent access from one wing of the staircase, providing a lovely outlook over the garden and fitted with deep built-in storage cupboards. 

Bedroom 3
Another pretty double bedroom with views out to fields at the front. 

Conveniently located on the half landing, to serve all of the bedrooms. Attractive stone tiling and a white suite with feature bath with shower over, a wall-mounted basin and a concealed cistern WC. 

Driveway with ample parking. There is gated access to the side that leads through the covered seating area and gives access to a shed and wood store.

The rear garden has an attractive patio area that wraps around the rear and side of the home providing a terrace to enjoy the sunshine to the side of the property.
