Delightful Grade II listed cottage, set in a peaceful location.
This charming thatched cottage, dating from 1741 with later additions, sits in a tranquil edge-of-village position, with gardens rolling down to a winterbourne. It has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide flexible accommodation. The front door, accessed via a pretty thatched porch, opens into an entrance hall with a stone floor. The drawing room, with a large inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove and a wealth of exposed beams, leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has the benefit of an AGA, fitted wooden units and a quarry-tiled floor. The adjacent dining room is a light, bright room with a roof lantern, quarry-tiled floor and French doors onto the terrace. A cosy dual-aspect sitting room, family bathroom, utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the sitting room to the triple-aspect principal bedroom and en suite shower room. The second staircase, from the entrance hall, leads up to three further double bedrooms.
The cottage is approached from the lane, via a five-bar gate, onto a gravel driveway, with parking for several cars. A really good range of fully insulated outbuildings are suitable for a variety of uses, such as home office, games room, gym or annexe (subject to the necessary consents). The separate garden studio has three sets of French doors overlooking the garden and is fully insulated, with both water and power. Behind the main run of outbuildings is a log store and further garden storage.
The delightful garden is laid mainly to lawn, with herbaceous borders and several mature trees, such as weeping willow and ash, a vegetable garden and a greenhouse. The lawns run down to a winterbourne and overlook the countryside beyond.
