About this property

  • Description

    Formerly the village post office, this attractive cottage, dating from 1850 with later additions, is constructed of red brick under a slate tiled roof. It has undergone an extensive renovation in recent years, resulting in a property for which the carbon footprint has been minimized wherever practical and traditional techniques used where appropriate, to enhance the efficiency and aesthetics of the house, whilst reducing the maintenance required.

    The front door opens into a hall, from which the dining room, with woodburning stove, music room and sitting room are accessed. The large L-shaped Sitting Room/Snug is light and airy, with plantation shutter blinds on the south/east facing windows. It has a woodburning stove and French doors opening on to a sheltered rear courtyard. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from French doors opening onto the garden and is flooded with light. It has shaker-style cupboards and a combination of solid walnut and quartz worktops. Integrated appliances include two Neff combi steam ovens, a Neff combi microwave, AEG induction hob and a dishwasher.

    Accessed from the kitchen is a utility room housing the recently installed (Winter 2018) Air Source Heat Pump, still with 18 months remaining of Domestic RHI Grant. The utility room opens through to the cloakroom/WC. The kitchen, utility and cloakroom all have underfloor heating. Completing the ground floor is a laundry room, with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Two staircases, one from the music room and one from the inner hall, lead upstairs. The principal bedroom has a dressing area and en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms and a single bedroom/study. A family bathroom and separate family shower room ensure flexibility for family living.

    Outside

    The house sits on a quiet country road. The garden to the front of the property is enclosed by hedging and laid predominantly to lawn, with a summer house in one corner and a vegetable garden to the side. Behind the house is a sheltered and private rear courtyard. Opposite the house is an extensive private driveway and parking area, with far-reaching countryside views to one end.

    There are architectural drawings available for a proposed timber-framed garage, with a balconied room above (planning consents not yet applied for).

This period house has such a lovely feel, the kitchen has been thoughtfully extended and I love how close you are to both open countryside and village amenities.
