About this property

  • Nestled on the corner of a quiet semi rural lane and opposite the beautiful Bourne Woods, Cobb Cottage is an impressive five bedroom family house with a blend of Victorian and Edwardian architecture that has been in the same family for over 50 years. The house sits within a large south and west facing plot with around 0.65 acre of level lawn, area of wild garden with ponds and around 0.75 acre of private woodland.

    Upon entering the front door, the wide entrance hall opens to the left and right providing access to all the main ground floor rooms and has a delightful tiled floor reflecting its age.

    The drawing room overlooks the garden and is south facing with a door through to an orangery built in 2014 offering a westerly aspect. double doors to garden and underfloor heating.

    Leading to the right from the main hall, the family room is an excellent space with a large casement window to the front overlooking the gardens. Further along the corridor, both the dining room and breakfast room are also south facing and a bright kitchen with windows and doors to the side complete the ground floor accommodation. There is also a guest WC on this level.

    A wide staircase leads up from the main hall to the first floor with a large landing giving access to all five bedrooms. The principal bedroom has fine views over the gardens and is full of light. A door leads through to spacious dressing room or potential en suite bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms and this level and three more bath/shower rooms.

    Outside, the gardens and terrace are mostly south and west facing with fabulous areas of lawn, planted terrace beds, ornamental ponds and a stone terrace for dining.

Across the lane from the entrance to the property, is an enclosed area of private and fenced woodland (forming part of Bourne Woods).

There's often a reason houses haven't sold for 50 years...that is - they are simply wonderful paces to live!
