Charming detached period cottage nestled in the grounds of Brasted Place.
West Cottage is a charming period cottage believed to date from the mid 1800s situated in an enviable tucked away position in the grounds of the private estate of Brasted Place, yet well located for Brasted village and its amenities. The property has been extended and improved by the current owners, offering well-proportioned and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors, with ideal areas for entertaining and modern living. Of particular note are the many character features including wooden floorboards, a south facing garden of 0.32 acres, a home office, garaging and workshops as well as further outbuildings and off road parking for several cars.
Principal reception rooms comprise a superb south-facing sitting room which enjoys a triple aspect with bi-fold and French doors leading out to the garden and a fireplace inset with wood burning stove, a dining room with an attractive fireplace and a garden room also with bi-fold doors leading out to the garden.
The well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a bespoke range of shaker-style base and wall units and with a matching central island. There are some integral appliances and space for a range style cooker. Double doors lead out to the paved terrace. An adjoining utility room benefits from further storage, space for appliances and outside access.
A spacious and well-appointed bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower and two useful storage cupboards complete this floor.
Arranged over the first floor is the spacious principal suite, comprising a generous double bedroom and an en suite shower room, and three further bedrooms, two of which are served by a jack and jill' shower room.
West Cottage is approached via the grounds of Brasted Place, through the main entrance gates and situated down a private shared driveway.
West Cottage benefits from a generous gravel parking area providing parking for several cars and leading to the numerous outbuildings comprising a versatile home office/garden studio, garaging, two workshops and two further storage buildings.
The delightful cottage gardens are predominately south facing and wrap around the property on three sides, with paved terraces providing wonderful spaces for al fresco entertaining, one with a pond providing a haven for local wildlife and leading to an expanse of lawn with attractive and landscaped flowering borders. The gardens are fence and hedge enclosed and amount to 0.32 of an acre.
