A Grade II-listed thatched four bedroom cottage with character features and impressive landscaped gardens.
This attractive thatched cottage was built in the 17th century and benefits from a 20th century extension, creating a deceptively spacious home with good versatility. The character cottage is Grade II listed and is notable for its exposed timber beams, oak doors and windows and a lovely brick fireplace. The house is beautifully presented throughout and has been modernised in a sympathetic way that doesn't detract from the considerable character of the home. There is, however, further scope to improve or personalise if desired. Externally the property benefits from a very well proportioned plot with landscaped gardens, ample parking and two outbuildings.
The house has a quirky layout with a separate wing extension housing the newer rooms. It is entered via an entrance hall which has a useful cloakroom/WC and a to the forth bedroom or this room could be used as additional reception room. In the older, original part of the house there is a sitting room and separate dining room, both with wood-burning stoves, a kitchen and an adjoining utility room. Upstairs there are two very generous double bedrooms in the impressive vaulted eaves, a third good size bedroom and a shower room. The total footprint of the house is about 2032 sq ft.
The gardens are a highlight of the home, comprising a secluded courtyard space for entertaining and an expansive lawned garden featuring a variety of specimen trees including copper beech box topiary, a silver birch and an impressive palm. These are beautifully complemented by deep borders stocked with a selection of well-established shrubs and a number of seating areas. There is also a summerhouse, workshop/store and greenhouse. To the front of the house there is off-street parking and a double garage.
