About this property

  • Curfew Cottage is a charming detached Grade II listed four bedroom property, the heart of which is believed to date from the 16th century or earlier with later 19th century additions and an excellent 21st century kitchen/dining room extension.

    The accommodation features a wealth of timbers and beams and comprises two reception rooms; in the original part of the house there is a beamed family room with inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove whilst in the Victorian front portion there is a light airy sitting room with sash windows and wood burning stove.

    The kitchen/dining room extension, completed in 2021 is a great family space with central roof lantern and French doors to the southerly end opening to the garden. There is a good range of cupboards and space for a range-style cooker, a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and larder cupboard. An adjoining part vaulted utility room has space for white goods and there is a separate WC. A flexible fourth bedroom and a family bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor are two bedrooms, the main bedroom has views to the front and features fitted cupboards and an en suite shower room. Bedroom two also benefits from its own en suite shower room. A turned oak staircase leads up from bedroom two to pretty vaulted attic bedroom three where there is also access to generous eaves storage.

    A picket fence and pedestrian gate lead to the front of the house and the lovely cottage gardens which are enclosed and planted with varieties of trees, including magnolia, walnut and fruit trees. There is a decked terrace with pergola enhanced with honeysuckle and wisteria, a sandstone terrace and the gardens continue to a kitchen garden area with raised beds. Outbuildings include a home office with power and light, a greenhouse, a garage, log store with sedum roof and two stores. There is also off road parking for several cars.
