A quaint and characterful home in an historic picturesque village
Yewtree Cottage may be of modest scale, but this pretty property leaves a lasting impression from the tumbled stone exterior and picket fence through to the elegantly arranged interior.
The traditional hardwood front door enters directly to the living room where the convivial focal point is the stone hearth, crowned with an oak beam it houses a multi-fuel wood burning stove. A winding stone staircase leading to the second bedroom/study is tucked behind an original wooden latch door. The beams, alcove, and main stair in the living area have been crisply and brightly finished and are juxtaposed by swathes of rustic exposed stone in the kitchen.
The kitchen is a casual contemporary design blending white shaker style shelving and floor units with tiled flooring, chrome accents, including an integrated Samsung oven, integrated full size dishwasher and an electric hob. The pitched ceiling and three cottage box windows with views over the garden lighten the space and the accompanying dining nook entertains guests comfortably.
The utility is an extension of useable kitchen space with further matching units, plumbing for laundry facilities, integrated full size fridge freezer and a hardwood stable door leading to the rear garden. The wall mounted gas central heating boiler is also situated here.
The bathroom is located on the ground floor and has been recently remodelled with an updated suite including bath with mixer tap and shower head, a separate shower cubicle with rainfall shower head plus dual hand held shower, pedestal sink, wc with decorative Victorian accents and finishes. Chrome / white ceramic central heated towel rail. White wooden shutters to window which let in plenty of light.
Upstairs there is further comforting character to be found with clever utilisation of space including a double bedroom with burnished floorboards and beams.
A beautifully cultivated rear garden has a recently added summerhouse with electric supplied, space for outside seating, raised beds, log store and shed with useful outside garden tap. Garden is framed with sleeper-bed shrubbed borders and connecting to the front garden via a side gate and slabbed pathway, the slate covered area is ideal for pots and further planting. The rear of the garden is neighboured by the historic St Mary's Church.
Modernised with sympathetic touches throughout including hardwood double glazed cottage windows and attractive ironmongery.
We would advise there is secure parking at the church car park a very short walk from the property, please contact for more information.
