About this property

  • Saracens Cottage is a charming Grade II Listed property in a country lane setting with attractive gardens, stables and fields of about 8 acres. The original part of the house is thought to date from the early 19th century and features ragstone elevations and Dering windows, distinctive round-headed windows which are typical of many local historic homes in the area.

    The accommodation includes a sitting room with wood burning stove and French doors to the garden, a family room with staircase to the galleried landing, and in the oldest part of the house a cosy snug and study.

    The modern fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room has various integral AEG appliances including oven, microwave and warming drawers and a Quooker boiling water tap. Indian sandstone tiled flooring flows seamlessly from the inside out via French doors to the terrace and a staircase leads up to an attractive mezzanine floor, ideal as an additional sitting/family area.

    Completing the ground floor accommodation is a hall off which there is a double bedroom and a bathroom and a utility room.

    On the first floor there are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom boasts a stylish en suite shower room, together with a 24ft dressing room with fitted storage. The remaining two bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms enjoy views over the gardens and land.

    Saracens Cottage is accessed from the lane over a generous drive with parking for a number of cars. The cottage-style gardens lie to three sides of the house with its original elevation enhanced by mature wisteria. There are rose beds, lawns under planted with spring bulbs, raised vegetable beds and a pond. To the north of the garden and the south of the drive are two fields which are down to grass, one flanked by woodland and benefiting for separate vehicular access.
    To the east of the drive lie the two stables with hard standing yard.
