Grade II listed period cottage with Victorian additions and separate annexe.
Pilgrims is a charming Grade II listed semi-detached cottage with partially tile hung elevations under a tiled roof. The original portion of the building is believed to date from the seventeenth century or earlier, and is complemented by Victorian additions.
The floorplans give a comprehensive overview of the layout of the property; internally the property has plenty of character, with period features including exposed beams and open plasterwork in the older portion of the house.
The house is entered via the entrance porch, situated in the Victorian portion of the house, and leading to the kitchen which is well-equipped with a good range of solid wood wall-hung and under-counter cabinets, complemented by black granite surfaces.
From the kitchen the inner hall leads to the dining room, which has spacious proportions, a marble feature fireplace with cast iron grate and French doors to the garden.
The inner hall leads to the snug, a cosy space for day to day use which has a fireplace fitted with a woodburner, and to the spacious principal living room, a more formal room which is vaulted and also has a woodburner stove. Also lying off the hall is the lobby, which has access to the rear garden and is believed to have once housed livestock; from here steps lead down to the cloakroom, which completes the ground floor.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom and en suite bathroom are in the Victorian portion of the house, and have high ceilings and lovely views across the gardens and surrounding village. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, served by a shower room. Bedroom three, and the stairs leading to the second floor, can be accessed via a ship's galley style hallway (with slightly reduced head height) or via connecting doors from bedroom two.
Bedrooms four and five are on the second floor. The fourth bedroom is reached via the study and has an en suite bathroom; this could be an ideal suite of rooms for an older child.
Annexe and Garaging
Also known as The Old Coach House, the annexe is has its own entrance from The Street and briefly comprises ground floor kitchen, shower room with WC and a first floor living room/bed room over the double garage. The garaging has two up and over doors, and a courtesy door to the rear garden.
Pilgrims is approached from Church Lane via a white wooden gate set into the original red brick wall, which partially borders the garden and provides an elegant feature; the gardens have been landscaped in zones, with space for table and chairs and many beds planted with good selection of mature shrubs, flowers and trees to provide interest throughout the year. There is a capped well, and a short drive accessed from The Street which can provide off street parking. There is an attached store, and a wood store. The plot extends in all to just under a quarter of an acre.
