Fridays Cottage is a unique cottage originally dating from the 1580's, sympathetically extended to accommodate a more contemporary style of living. The current owners have made substantial improvements to the property over the past four years.
Entering the property through an automated security gated entrance into a stone courtyard with new purpose built timber frame style double garage with electric up and over doors, log store to the rear and a utility area. The garage also includes ample storage space above.
This attractive cottage is stone fronted, brick capped and pot tiled roof. Entering into the reception hall with a cloakroom, stairs to first floor, one can break left to a recent extension to the property containing a highly finished kitchen/breakfast room. There are plans subject to planning to combine this room with the separate dining room to give an open plan dining/kitchen and sitting room snug. To the right of the entrance hall is a snug with a central grand fireplace that breaks through to the drawing room. The drawing room has a central brick fireplace with wood burning stove, a large bi folding set of French windows that open the room onto an attractive sand stone terrace leading to a raised lawn beyond and a summerhouse with York stone terrace at the top of the garden taking advantage of the late afternoon sun and views.
To the first floor are four bedrooms, two of which are en suite and a family bathroom. The period architecture is evident across this floor with a combination of exposed brick work, exposed timber beams and with pleasant views over the surrounding garden to heavily wooded parts beyond. The principle guest bedroom has a charming balcony overlooking the front of the property. The garden is largely laid to level lawn with a summerhouse which is currently used as an art studio/yoga room/office to the side and a potting shed further up the garden. A stream runs at the bottom of the garden to the front of the cottage and is home to a wide variety of birds.
