Charming brick and flint cottage in a tucked away setting.
Dating back, it is believed, to 1840s, Appletree Cottage is a very attractive brick and flint cottage which has been extended and renovated in recent years. It now offers light and spacious accommodation which is beautifully presented throughout.
The main sitting room is a charming space with a large inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and double doors opening to the conservatory to the rear. This is currently used as a dining room and has a lovely outlook over the rear garden. The family room, overlooking the front garden, is double aspect and also has exposed ceiling timbers and inglenook fireplace. Doors from both rooms give access to the lovely light kitchen which has a range of floor standing painted units around a central island, and a red Aga. Other built-in appliances include an oven, induction hob with extractor over, and a dishwasher. The ground floor accommodation is wonderfully flexible and the dining room, with doors opening to the rear garden, is currently used as a gym, off which is a study and second staircase..
To the first floor the principal bedroom is a good size with built-in wardrobes, large cupboard and a well-appointed en suite bathroom . Also accessed from the main staircase are two further bedrooms and family shower room. The guest bedroom is accessed via the second staircase and has an en suite shower room.
The property is approached via a shared gravel driveway opening to a parking area and garage offering tandem parking for two cars. A gravel path leads to the house where the delightful front garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature trees and hedging planted to the boundaries and flowerbeds overflow with perennial plants and shrubs. The rear garden is accessed from the conservatory and dining room with doors opening to an area of terrace and lawn edged with shrubs and trees. There is a summerhouse with power and light providing the opportunity to work from home and to one side is a south facing circular terrace and seating area. The perfect spot to enjoy the delights of this pretty house and its lovely setting.
