Charming period property offering versatile space
Glen Cottage is a charming Grade II listed detached house, which has been sensitively transformed by the current owners. It provides flexible, deceptively spacious accommodation and retains a wealth of period features including thatched roof (re-thatched in 2014), exposed beams, window seats and exposed floorboards.
Set in a thriving village, with good communication links and access to a range of schools it is likely to appeal to a variety of buyers.
The dual aspect kitchen/ breakfast room provides a spacious, flexible space with exposed beams, window seats, and part timber, part tiled floor. The kitchen has base units, two sinks, an electric Aga and in built oven and hob. The kitchen has access to both the front garden and the rear courtyard. There is also utility room and downstairs double bedroom with storage and a shower room, which makes an ideal guest suite.
Accessed from the kitchen, via a few steps, is the impressive and spacious sitting room / dining room with vaulted ceiling, doors into the garden and wood burning stove. The room makes a great family / entertaining space.
The first floor comprises a light landing with a versatile mezzanine area above, accessed via a ladder. There are two double bedrooms, one with an in built cupboard, and a spacious bathroom with separate shower.
The enclosed, south facing, landscaped gardens include a large area of lawn with a paved seating area in the middle, vegetable garden, separate lawn area, open fronted shed and greenhouse. There is also a courtyard to the rear of the property. To the side of the house is a gravel parking area and a timber frame, thatched carport with ample storage.

I was immediately taken by the accommodation at Glen Cottage, in particular charming kitchen / breakfast room and the impressive vaulted sitting room. The house has been sensitively improved and the thatch replaced.Catherine Scandrett
