Wonderful Grade II listed village house.
Cobblers is a delightful, Grade II listed house, located in the heart of the village on the corner of sought after Beacon Hill. Built in about 1780 this brick and flint detached property is set back from the road and is full of charm and character with period details including sash windows and a wood trellis porch to the front door.
On the ground floor the sitting room enjoys wonderful garden views to the front. An attractive Adam style fireplace with a gas fire, flanked with built in shelving, provides a focal point and a cosy feel. The room opens into a snug/study with an attractive bay window to the side and views again over the frontage. A hallway leads to the kitchen and stairs to the first floor. Lying off the kitchen is a reception hall with a cloakroom and side door to the garden, currently used as the main entrance. The kitchen is bespoke fitted by Martin Moore with a good range of hand painted units complemented by granite worktops, together with a gas Aga, integrated dishwasher and an electric hob. Fitted cupboards provide useful further storage. Flowing from the kitchen is the garden room, perfect for use as a dining room, with lovely views of the rear garden and a door opening on to the terrace.
On the first floor the principal bedroom overlooks the frontage, with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, one to the front with a decorative fireplace, and one to the rear. Both have fitted wardrobes and are served by the family shower room.
The property sits well in its own plot enjoying an impressive frontage, predominately lawned with wide, well stocked borders and a central garden path flanked by decorative box hedging. Gates on both sides lead to the pretty rear garden which wraps around the house to the side and rear. The garden enjoys areas of lawn, planted beds and borders, a raised vegetable planter together with a walled terrace area. Steps lead up to a brick and flint outbuilding which comprises a two room home office and an adjacent utility room, with door access to the garage. A greenhouse lies in the corner of the garden and a garage and carport provide off street parking. The front and rear gardens are enclosed with trees, fencing and hedging.
