    About this property

    • Ventura Cottage is a charming south facing family home, set back from a small country lane in the village, with good off street parking and a substantial garden. The cottage enjoys over 2700 square feet of adaptable living space, with period detail throughout alongside contemporary infrastructure such as sensor lighting.

      Of particular note on the ground floor is the welcoming sitting/dining room, a large semi-open plan area, incorporating a study area, and with a dual sided wood burner shared with the separate sitting room. A useful conservatory has been used in many guises and a lovely garden room, with bi-fold doors giving access to the garden terrace, provides a further reception room and is currently a play room/cinema.

      Two staircases lead to the first floor, with a total of five bedrooms and two family bathrooms. The layout of the first floor can be adapted depending on living style, with listed building consent for a further staircase if required.

      The house is approached from the south, onto a large brick weave parking and turning area adjoining the house. The garden to the south is mainly lawn, interspersed with shrubs and flower beds with a pedestrian gate set between low mellow brick piers with a path leading to the house.

      The main garden is to the rear of the house, with a substantial lawn sweeping away from the house to the boundary, beyond which is the village playing field. Adjoining the house is a paved terrace, perfect for outside dining with the feature of a glass capped well, with a raised decked area providing a further seating area to enjoy the surrounding gardens. Throughout the garden are further points of interest, with pond and ornamental bridge to pathways leading through trees and flowerbeds. A path continues to an area with useful outbuildings and summer houses, and a bespoke oak frame seating area.
