    About this property

    • Knights Cottage is an exquisite home enviably tucked away from the lane by a private sweeping driveway, flanked by mature shrubs, flower beds, well tended lawns and a picturesque pond. The house sits well in its plot with views over the stunning grounds.
      The welcoming entrance hall immediately gives not only a sense of the character of the property but also dictates the calm ambiance and stylish presentation throughout. The ground floor offers generous reception rooms, with an elegant sitting room with fireplace which in turn leads into the study with bay window, both rooms having doors to outside. In addition, there is a sizeable snug, again with doors to outside and a separate dining room. The kitchen is fully fitted, it has a central island and ample space for informal dining. The adjoining, recently refitted utility room is most useful as is the pantry, directly off the kitchen.
      Upstairs, the principal bedroom benefits from a dressing area with walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms which are served by two additional bathrooms. All of the rooms enjoy a beautiful aspect.
      Outside,the current owners have converted a substantial outbuilding to create additional accommodation which encompasses a kitchen, a dining room (ideal for entertaining as it can seat around 20 people), a truly fabulous garden room with two sets of double doors to the garden, a shower room and bedroom.
      Further outbuildings include store rooms, a sizeable shed and a double open bay garage. The sweeping lawns are bordered by high hedging and trees offering seclusion and lead down to the tennis court at the base of the garden. There is also a kitchen garden and a most attractive seating area as well as a most delightful secluded courtyard garden to the rear which features numerous mature shrubs, the ideal spot for total relaxation.
