Full Details

The newly extended part of this charming cottage has a natural flow from the family room, kitchen/breakfast room through to the original part which boasts an abundance of original features, including exposed beams and two seventeenth century inglenook fireplaces. Bi-folding doors lead out from the breakfast room on to a large patio area which makes for the perfect "indoor outdoor" feeling.

A study, large utility/boot room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor is accessed via a character oak staircase leading to a spacious landing where there are are four generous double bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en suite shower-room, and a family bathroom with bath and separate shower.

The property enjoys an elevated position, sitting centrally within its plot with gardens to the front, side and rear.

To the front is a cottage garden stocked with perennials, three large raised vegetable beds, a large chicken run and a selection of fruit trees.

The rear of the property is mainly laid to lawn with a large enclosed patio area directly accessed through the bi-folding kitchen doors, ideal for playing and entertaining.

At the top of the garden is a stable built in 2018, with water and power. This is currently used as a home brewery and store, but would lend itself to being used as a home office or "den".

To the front is a detached garage with power, currently used as a workshop/store. The property offers off road parking for up to five cars.
