A deceptively spacious cottage with light and airy rooms, set in about half an acre of gardens.
4 Foundry Row is a charming, tucked away family home, nestled at the end of a terrace of attractive brick and flint cottages. The house enjoys a wonderful privacy within the village, and a substantial and mature garden that stretches away from the house to farmland beyond.
Victorian in origin, and extended around 2004, the property enjoys around 2400 sq ft of welcoming and comfortable living space, with open plan and cosy areas. At the heart of it all is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, complete with Aga, a fantastic focal point of the house which is part open plan to a living area with fireplace. Off the kitchen is the barn room', the sort of room that evolves and could be anything, with vaulted ceiling and French doors out to the garden. On the south-west elevation of the house, so perfectly positioned for sunny days, is the delightful conservatory, with timber frame on a mellow brick plinth, with pamment floors and Jasmine trained to the wall, ideal for lazy afternoons. A further homely sitting room, with cabinetry, alcove shelving and wood burner is a further area to enjoy, with a practical utility and boot area completing the ground floor.
The first floor hosts all bedrooms, all linked via a central hall. The principal bedroom is dual aspect with views over the gardens, with an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, with two light, airy and spacious double bedrooms and two smaller rooms that are between a double and single depending on furniture layout.
Outside?The house is approached over an initial shared driveway, to wooden five bar gate leading to the private parking area and gardens of the 4 Foundry Row.
The mature gardens are a wonderful feature of the property. A set of steps lead up to a large expanse of lawn that sweeps away from the house, with apple trees, various shrubs, fine trees such as copper beech dotted throughout the grounds with established boundaries on all sides. To the west of the house is a partly walled area, through an arch, with enclosed seating area beside the conservatory in a complete sun trap, ideal for outdoor dining and relaxing. The garden is a haven for wildlife and has plenty of opportunity for landscaping throughout.

I loved the house and how the gardens are so much larger than you would expect within this village location.Ben RivettProperty agent
