Dating from 1883 and originally converted from the stables and gardener's cottage for the large neighbouring house, The Barrows Cottage is an attractive family home providing flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. The property combines modern living with retained features including some diamond crittall windows and original open fireplaces together with high ceilings on the ground floor. The accommodation flows from a welcoming entrance hall with Amtico flooring and comprises a spacious drawing room with wood flooring and a feature open fireplace opening into a fully-glazed conservatory with solar glass and French doors to the gardens. There is a substantial sitting/dining room and a well-proportioned study with feature full height glazing replacing the original front stable door and a cast iron spiral staircase to the first floor. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room with an adjacent fitted utility room and modern ground floor cloakroom/shower room with quality Duravit and Aqualisa fittings. The kitchen provides a range of bespoke handmade solid wood units with granite work surfaces, a range cooker and space for a table for more informal dining.
