Charming late Victorian cottage in the heart of the village.
Believed to date from the 1880s, with various later additions, Ivy Cottage is an attractive period house, situated in the heart of the historic village of West Hoathly. The house was the subject of remodelling and extensive renovation when our client acquired it in 2009, and it is very well presented throughout: decorated in a modern country style, combining original leaded light casement windows and some period detailing with a fresh, neutral colour palette, wooden and tiled floors and modern white bathroom suites.
The sitting room is light and bright, with windows to three aspects and French doors opening to the garden; the handsome inglenook fireplace is set with an electric woodburner-style stove. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cream shaker style cabinetry under black granite worktops and a number of integrated appliances; the dining area has ample space for a table and a corner window overlooking the courtyard. Adjoining the kitchen, and providing very useful storage, is a shelved larder with a further store beyond.
The conservatory lies beyond the kitchen, a lovely sunny room perfectly connecting the house to the outside space. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, bedroom three fitted with bookshelving and cupboards and currently used as a study. Bedroom one lies at the front of the house and has a good range of fitted cupboards, as well as a stylish shower room with suite including twin basins and a large shower cubicle.
Stairs rise from the landing to bedroom four on the second floor, and to a useful attic storage room.
To the rear of the house is a private and well-enclosed south-east facing courtyard garden with raised beds planted with climbers, and a pretty ornamental pond in the shade of a mature acer. To the front of the house is an area of block paving providing off-road parking for one small car.
