A charming, detached period property offering a wealth of character
With an attractive brick-and-flint façade, Number 3 Station Road combines vintage features with modern interior styling to provide an appealing, versatile cottage-style home. Characteristics of note include a mix of rustic and more recent exposed timbers, feature fireplaces with wood-burning stoves and step level changes which create interest in this unique environment. The ground floor reception rooms comprise a sitting room, dining room, flexible-use reception hall/study which have openings through to the spacious, light-filled kitchen/breakfast room. Fitted with contemporary wall and base level cabinetry, topped with wooden work surfaces, the terracotta-tiled kitchen has a blue Rayburn stove at its heart and extends into a sociable breakfast area. There are also a double bedroom and ground floor wet room on this level.
A stairway from the reception hall/study rises to an impressive office area on the roomy landing which showcases a vaulted ceiling and timber rafters and provides an inspiring home-working space. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, along with a stylish, generously sized bathroom, which features a freestanding, roll-top bath and a bespoke walk in shower area.
A low brick-and-flint wall with clipped evergreen hedging fronts the lane and a driveway to the side provides parking for at least two cars, there is also a useful log store here. The drive also leads to the entrance into the home. A timber pergola in the rear garden covers a paved terrace offering a sheltered spot to sit and dine, with a low brick edged border providing a planting pocket which adjoins a high-level wall boundary, ensuring seclusion. Timber steps lead up to a higher level extended, lawned area of the garden which features specimen trees, hedging and mature shrubs. An elevated decked terrace extends from bedroom 4 which has direct access out from the upper office and, together with the French doors from the lower level hallway and dining room, provides a link from the inside to the charming garden.
