About this property

  • 19 High Street is a pretty Grade II listed thatched cottage dating from the 17th century with brick front elevation and a steeply pitched gabled end wall.

    Beautifully presented in that quintessentially English “chocolate box” style the cottage has been extended and renovated in recent years and offers a combination of charming period features with more modern space in the weatherboarded lead roofed extension to the side.

    On the ground floor a large reception/dining hall with door out to the rear garden has white painted beams and, off to the left, the sitting room has an Inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden. From the hallway a walk-through study area leads to the refitted bathroom with high quality sanitaryware and a shower over the bath. The light and spacious kitchen is fitted with a range of shaker style painted units with wooden working surfaces and space for a range type cooker. There are three sets of French doors to the garden and lots of light and space.

    From the hallway the stairs lead up to the vaulted landing with an ornately carved baluster rail and three bedrooms.

    To the front there are clipped topiaried box bushes, a shingled parking bay and a driveway to the other end of the house leading into the rear garden. Along the rear elevation is a large raised deck with a pergola covered seating area to one end. Of particular note it the detached annexe/office building with two mezzanine platforms one at either end and a large open plan space with wide French doors to the garden and a shower room. The garden backs onto the Childerley Estate and is laid mainly to lawn with shrub and herbaceous planting including some exotic species.

    In all 0.14 of an acre.

This is one of the prettiest cottages I have seen in a while with a really lovely blend of old and new and open views over the neighbouring private estate not to mention a separate annexe/ office from home/ studio for added flexibility.
