      It is a surprise to discover Chestnut Cottage hidden away at the head of a gated driveway and set within over half an acre of private, partly walled gardens.

      Chestnut Cottage is a delightful family home of over 5000 sq ft which offers spacious and interesting accommodation arranged over two floors in a private semi-rural yet not isolated setting.

      Not only does this attractive home offer a wealth of space inside, but the outside entertaining areas include a covered Victorian style veranda over a stone terrace overlooking the landscaped gardens, perfect for entertaining in the warmer months.

      A side entrance porch opens to the hall with a cloakroom and w.c. and one of the largest boot rooms/utility rooms we have seen. To the right of the hall is the well-appointed dining kitchen with cherry wood cupboards, granite surfaces and integrated Neff appliances. Limestone flooring leads to the informal dining area which extends into a side bay. Off the kitchen and potentially easily opened up is the family sitting room with a dual aspect and fireplace.

      The hallway extends through to the large sun lounge with two sets of French doors to the rear terrace and gardens, an opening to the staircase hall with maple flooring and a pretty Gothic style staircase.

      Double doors open to the study, equally suited as a dining hall, with double doors to the sun lounge and to the library hall which leads to an office or playroom with French doors to the veranda. The largest reception room is currently used as a dining room but is equally suited to a drawing room and has two sets of French doors to the veranda. Flexibility is clear, this is a house with space to use as you need.

      On the first floor, accessed by two staircase, there are five double bedrooms, four of which have en suite bathrooms and house bathroom serving the adjoining fifth bedroom. The master suite is huge, has a Juliet balcony and is air conditioned; it includes a triple aspect bedroom area, an en suite bathroom with dual access from the fitted dressing room.

      Within the half acre gardens is a green oak double car port with an adjoining loggia area and workshop/store. This is approached by a gravel driveway extending from the main gravel drive and parking area beyond the automated double gates.
