Extended Victorian cottage in about an acre
Chauffeurs Cottage is an attractive detached Victorian property which was originally part of the Langley estate. Having been extended in 2003 to an award winning design it now represents a spacious family home. There are three bedrooms to the original part of the house with a further
mezzanine bedroom having been added. Offering a welcoming
country style kitchen/ breakfast room with open plan dining room off it with skylights, perfectly blends the old and the new and would be a fantastic summer entertaining space. Retaining the character of the original dwelling is the living room with feature fireplace and gives the option of using the extension
as a separate guest wing if desired. Of particular note is how the owners have made every effort to create as much light in the property through use of large windows and two sets of
double opening doors off the extension to aid in the flow of the accommodation from inside to out.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway and is neatly screened by hedging giving added privacy. The plot is about an acre in size and benefits from no neighbouring properties to the sides and rear, giving attractive far reaching field views to two aspects. The owners have planted a variety of fruit trees
such as quince, medlar, pear and five varieties of apple tree
including a crab apple as well as planting a walnut tree. A garage as well as an outbuilding provide excellent storage space.
