About this property

  • Lot 2 - Silverton Cottage
    Silverton Cottage is the larger of two properties that have been developed in the traditional stone steadings that lie adjacent to Silverton Farmhouse. The property is attached to Silverton Mews (Lot 3) and the two properties could work well in conjunction with each other, depending on a buyer's requirements.

    Silverton Cottage is a substantial 3-4 bedroom house accessed by a pretty front door in the corner of the courtyard. From the reception hallway, steps lead down to an impressive vaulted open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room. The kitchen has a large central island, painted timber cabinets and granite worktops. There is space for a dining table between the kitchen and the sitting room, where there are two sets French windows to the garden. The focal point of the room is a double-sided multi fuel stove which is set into an exposed stone chimney breast dividing the dining area from the sitting room. This together with the exposed ceiling rafters, gives this room great character. Nordan windows installed in 2014 frame rural views and fill the room with light. The bedroom wing at Silverton Cottage is at the eastern side of the building where the principal bedroom has an en suite shower room and two further double bedrooms share a family bathroom. Silverton Cottage also has a utility room, a gym and an additional shower room on the ground floor. A versatile loft room over the garage is currently used as a fourth bedroom but could also make a great games room or home office.

    Silverton Cottage is set in about 0.53 acres. The garden is mainly lawn partially enclosed by a beech hedge. A terrace on the western side of the house provides a lovely place to sit out in good weather.

    Three original cartshed openings provide access to expansive garaging and storage attached to Silverton Cottage.
