- Download Brochure
This charming Grade II Listed cottage dates from approximately 1513 with later additions, and offers a wealth of period features including exposed beams, brickwork and original fireplaces throughout. Entering the property via the porch there is a charming sitting room with ceiling and vertical beams, wide oak wooden flooring and an impressive inglenook fireplace. The ground floor also has an open-plan kitchen and dining area, part of which is a modern extension, with two sets of French doors, one leading out to the front and the other to the back garden. The kitchen has stylish contemporary units as well as a central island, Butler's sink and a three-oven Aga. Leading off the kitchen is a very generous utility/boot room with a cloakroom/shower room. From the dining area an oak staircase leads up to the galleried first floor landing, which cleverly uses the space as a study area. The principal bedroom with its fitted wardrobe space and two further bedrooms lead off the landing, as well as the family bathroom with its attractive free standing bathtub. A useful loft space provides further storage. A second staircase leads up to the fourth bedroom on the top floor in the eaves.
This property has 0.5 acres of land.
The property is set back from the main road, situated behind the village shop and is accessed by a walkway between the shop and neighbouring house. There is a small car opposite which provides parking for the villagers. The property is surrounded by paved terracing to the front and sides, with a lovely large terrace to the rear, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining, and steps leading to a lawn. The garden is delightful and bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds and a variety of shrubs, mature hedges and trees. There is also a greenhouse, large storage shed and a wonderful treehouse.
