Property Details

Having driven down the long, privately maintained track to the property, the first thing that strikes you is the peace and quiet of this wonderful location. One of two cottages - sitting far enough apart to still feel isolated - this really is a rural idyll.

The origins of the cottage date back to the mid 18th Century and this is reflected in the black and white beamed façade. A later extension provides further accommodation. Entering through the front door into the quarry-tiled floor, the first door on the right leads into the older part of the house and the drawing room. Surprisingly, for a period property, it feels light and spacious and, although there is one beam with restricted head height, the ceiling is not low. The main feature of the room is the fireplace with log burner making it a lovely cosy room.

The recently refitted kitchen leads off the newly fitted carpeted hall and has space for a breakfast area. It boasts a gas range-style cooker as well as an electric cooker, plenty of workspace and eye-level display cabinets. Further down the hall is a utility room with space for washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge-freezer, sink and work surface and the back door. At the end of the corridor is the current dining room with French style doors out on to the patio. This could equally well serve as an excellent second sitting room, snug or children’s play room. Next to this is the useful study. A further reception room would make an ideal dining room with its easy access to the kitchen. As well as plenty of useful storage under the stairs, this floor is completed by a WC.

Upstairs in the older, beamed, part of the house is the principal suite which has an en-suite with shower and a dressing area. Again this is light and spacious thanks, in part, to the vaulted ceiling, skylights and the windows with garden views. Along the landing is a family bathroom complete with bath and separate shower cubicle, two further bedrooms and a final bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom.

The property cannot fail to impress on the inside but has plenty more to offer on the outside. A double garage with roof storage sits at the front of the property and leads round to the spacious patio surrounding the cottage. The garden, of approximately 1 acre in size, leads away from the cottage and is full of mature shrubs and trees. It could be described as having ‘rooms’ which lead from one to the other containing a mixture of hot beds, raised vegetable patches, soft fruit beds and there is a substantial shed. Feeling very private, there are glimpses through to the expansive views. Back at the house, the patio continues with established flower beds, a pond and brick wood store and finally leads to the front garden with its rockery style garden.

The property has its own water supply with a newly installed pump which has been regularly tested.

It is very difficult to adequately describe this lovely cottage in words and pictures alone. It is beautifully presented and has spacious, multi-purpose rooms throughout. We, therefore, highly recommend a physical viewing. This could be a wonderful opportunity for you to adopt a whole new way of life, with fast fibre broadband provided by Gigaclear with max 100MB per second; This gives you the potential for working from home.
