Stonebridge Cottage is a charming period cottage, which has been a much loved home for about 60 years. The property sits in delightful grounds in a secluded and tranquil setting and, with some modernisation, would make a wonderful residence for a family. At the front there are three gables and a pretty porch adorned with climbing roses leads you into the house. The reception rooms on the ground floor are well laid out with a cosy drawing room with an open fireplace, a separate dining room, also with its own fireplace and a kitchen, which has the added appeal of an Aga. A conservatory leads off the drawing room where one can sit appreciate the lovely garden all year round. A downstairs bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation. Stairs rise to the first floor where there are three good size bedrooms. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a shower.
The cottage is well set back from the road and approached via a quiet lane up to the house. There is parking in front of the double garage and access into the garden with a pathway leading up to the front door. The gardens are well maintained and mainly laid to level lawn, interspersed with some mature trees and most notably some fabulous mature rhododendron bushes. On the other side of the house, for the avid gardener, there is the potential to reinstate the vegetable garden and fruit cages.
The property is located just outside the small village of Worplesdon, which has a village hall and its own thriving local tennis and cricket clubs, as well as the added benefit of a mainline rail services to London Waterloo. The house is located on Rickford Common which leads in to the extensive Whitmoor Common, and the surrounding area is ideal for walking, cycling and riding.
