About this property

  • Peacock House is a charming and unlisted white weather-boarded detached cottage dating from circa 1720 with a detached self-contained annexe.

    This wonderful property has been refurbished by the current owners, retaining a wealth of period charm and character including exposed timbers, English elm flooring and with the majority of the rooms benefitting from dual or triple aspects, it features accommodation arranged over two floors.

    Reception rooms comprise a triple aspect sitting room with wood burning stove and a formal dining room with original English elm beams. A well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with central island and wood burning Rayburn Aga supplying the hot water and heating. There is an induction hob, Neue oven and space for white goods. On the other side of the property, off the entrance hall, is a beautifully bright and airy triple aspect sun room with a bay window and overhead windows. A downstairs cloakroom concludes the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms, the main bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room whilst the other two bedrooms are served by a stylishly appointed family bathroom.

    Nestled amongst delightful cottage style gardens of about 0.2 of an acre which have been beautifully maintained, the garden is laid mainly to lawn. There are a range of risen flower beds, vegetable beds, apple trees, cherry trees and gooseberry trees which create a charming appeal. Outbuildings include a potting shed, summerhouse with electricity and a heated greenhouse. To the front of the property is parking for several cars along with a double garage.

    Situated to the side of the property and with separate access, is a superb detached self-contained holiday annexe. Accommodation comprises a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, bedroom and shower room.
