    About this property

    • September Cottage was built approximately 55 years ago and rebuilt and extended in 2010 to form a beautifully appointed family home. The accommodation is arranged over one level and begins with an entrance vestibule leading to the open plan kitchen / dining room which has a wide range of quality contemporary base and wall mounted units with granite worktops. From the kitchen there is a door leading to the open plan sitting room / garden room – this wonderfully light and airy space has a log burning stove and double height gable end windows taking full advantage of the scenic aspects of the gardens and countryside beyond with double glazed French doors leading to a paved terrace. The inner hallway leads to the principal bedroom with oak flooring, patio doors to the garden and a beautiful Villeroy and Boch three piece en suite shower room. There are four additional bedrooms, two of which share a Jack and Jill en suite shower room while another bedroom has access to the main bathroom.

      The gardens surrounding the property are mainly lawned and are a credit to the current owners with beautiful open aspects beyond the boundary wall. Within the grounds there is a substantial tarmacadam driveway with double garage and also an attached double glazed conservatory.
