This charming and extended period cottage has its origins in the mid-1700s and is full of character both inside and out. It is surrounded by countryside and set well back from the lane with a drive bordered by a raised lawn and hedging that leads to a garage with double doors at each end and where you can park a car, with additional off road parking nearby. The external appearance of the cottage is a delight with stone walls, a recently retiled roof, multi-pane casement windows, a chimney stack, sloping roof dormers and a pitched roof porch with an attractive period front door.
This opens into the welcoming, dual aspect lounge with its stunning stone surround fireplace with a log burner, solid oak flooring, central ceiling beam and stairs to the first floor. There is a downstairs cloakroom and a charming dining room with exposed beams and wood flooring where family and friends can enjoy a meal while the well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room is ideal for informal get togethers. Here you will find an inset range cooker, a boiler cupboard and white units housing a dishwasher and fridge while still leaving plenty of space for a country style table and chairs.
Upstairs there is a spacious galleried landing leading to the vast family bathroom and three double bedrooms including one that has been laid out as an excellent office with lovely views across the garden and the countryside beyond and the main bedroom with ceiling beams and a partially vaulted ceiling.
Outside the owners have created wonderful areas in the garden to relax and revel in the surrounding views. At the top of the garden there are steps up to a very large decked terrace adjacent to fields. It has a seating area and a rose covered pergola dining area for barbecues and al fresco meals, where you can seat at least eight people. There is a stunning detached garden room with a log burner, French doors to the upper garden and a large decked terrace. It includes lighting and electrics and where you can also put a TV so makes an ideal place to relax, a hideaway for teenage children or for ‘the lads’ wanting to watch an afternoon of sport! There are also raised vegetable beds, a front patio beside the porch and steps up to a ‘secret’ decked terrace set in amongst the trees which is a special spot to enjoy a peaceful evening drink and see the setting sun.
The kitchen door and the inner garage doors lead to a crazy paved courtyard and a separate building that has been used as a guest double bedroom. It has a basin but with existing plumbing it would be quite easy to install a shower room. This could also make an excellent office for anyone working from home who doesn’t want to be disturbed by activities in the house.
