Gorgeous detached cottage, guest studio and home office hidden away within private mature gardens and a short walk from the creek, pub and village pontoon.
Rookery Cottage is a gorgeous detached stone built cottage which we believe dates from the early 1800s. This wonderfully spacious and bright family home was extended and refurbished in 2006 and is presented in excellent order throughout. The ground floor comprises a sitting room with wood burning stove, a dining room which in turn leads to the open plan kitchen and a sun lounge / breakfast room. Both the sitting room and the breakfast room have double doors leading to the terrace and gardens. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of farmhouse style units topped in granite and appliances include an oil fired Sandyford Range and a dishwasher. One of the joys of this lovely kitchen is the walk in pantry. Also on the ground floor is an entrance hall / boot room, utility room and cloakroom. Stairs rise to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, including a spacious triple aspect main bedroom with en suite shower room, a second bedroom with French doors opening onto the terrace and another double bedroom currently used as an office. The fourth bedroom is in the form of a delightful guest studio in the garden offering a large double bedroom and en suite shower room.
Outside, the pretty and very private English country garden is a particularly attractive feature, being designed over different levels and offering lovely views over the village and down to the creek. There are mature silver birches, ash and sweet chestnut trees, well stocked borders with colourful flowers and mature shrubs and a productive vegetable garden. There is an original stone wash-house which makes a useful garden store / log store and also a modern purpose built shed. The newly built summer house makes a great home office if you can manage to drag yourself away from the glorious views! There is a double garage with pitched roof offering further storage and a gated driveway providing parking for a number of cars.
