    About this property

    • Bakery Cottage is a most attractive detached house, with a stunning garden, outbuilding and annexe. Situated in a quiet, edge of village location, the cottage is of predominantly brick elevations under a pan tile roof.

      The cottage is in immaculate condition with spacious and light filled rooms. The sitting room benefits from an open fireplace and a large window overlooking the garden and the Alde Valley; the dining room features a wood burning stove. A particular highlight of the property is the French oak glazed garden room which opens out from the kitchen and has French windows on to the terrace.

      Three spacious bedrooms occupy the first floor, with the principal bedroom benefiting from an adjoining shower en suite and dressing room.

      To the side of the property is the annexe, which is currently being used as a home office. With a shower room and separate access, it could make a useful downstairs bedroom.

      The delightful mature garden has a wonderful terrace, providing an excellent entertaining area, numerous herbaceous beds and an orchard with a variety of fruit trees.

      Bakery Cottage is approached via Chases Lane with a parking sweep and double garage with ample storage above.

    Bakery Cottage is a delightful family home. The garden room is fantastic and I love the terrace which is such a sun trap.
