About this property

  • In recent years Oak Cottage has undergone a major scheme of redevelopment with the result being an impressive contemporary home built to an exacting standard of construction and design and served by Ultrafast fibre broadband.

    The owners have applied a great deal of thought and attention to detail in the finish, including a Weber Pral M render, eliminating the need for future external decoration.

    It is an attractive house with well-balanced family accommodation over two floors and the house stands particularly well in its grounds, set back from School Lane and approached via a sweeping drive with electric gates. There is a parking area at the side of the house and the front door is set beneath a substantial oak portico.

    The accommodation opens into a reception hall with stairs to the first floor and providing access to the reception rooms. These include a drawing room and sitting room as well as a study.

    The open plan family kitchen has a good range of fitted units and an electric total control Aga.

    Bi-fold doors provide a seamless transition onto a paved terrace which the owners regularly use for outside dining. Beyond the kitchen is a games room or dining room and a shower room and utility room.

    On the first floor there is a master bedroom with a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and a large ensuite bathroom with lovely views across the land from the free standing bath. There are four further bedrooms (two of which also have en suite facilities) and a well-appointed family bathroom.

    The house is set in attractive gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with the exception of a kitchen garden. A jacuzzi is situated adjacent to the terrace, perfect for relaxing or entertaining.

    The gardens adjoin the garage which houses an Austrian biomass pellet boiler and a workshop/storage area. Beyond is a timber stable block with access to the land and a field shelter offers further protection from the weather.

    The land has been divided with post and rail fencing to create a secure boundary for stock and two paddocks.

    Total area: About 3.8 acres
