    About this property

    • Silverdale Cottage is a delightful character cottage dating from the 1920s, retaining many character features, of note is the traditional thatched roof and wealth of beams internally. The living accommodation is well-proportioned and presented and is arranged over two floors. The property is being offered with no onward chain with the established southerly facing gardens being a particular feature. In total the plot amounts to about 0.3 acres.

      The spacious south facing sitting room has an attractive feature fireplace and a paned door leading to the conservatory which is also south facing. Both rooms enjoy views over the garden and double doors from the conservatory lead to the rear terrace.

      The adjoining kitchen/breakfast room is triple aspect and has wall and floor units and there is space for several appliances.

      There is also useful utility room providing additional storage and outside access to an enclosed paved courtyard.

      Two bedrooms and a family bathroom are arranged over the remainder of the ground floor.

      To the first floor are two well proportioned bedrooms which are served by a shower room.

      Two useful storage rooms complete the first floor.

      The house is approached over a gravel drive which provides parking and leads to a detached timber frame double garage which benefits from a home office area to the first floor. A picket fence and gate lead to one side of the property and give access to the terrace and gardens.

      The established southerly gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with several mature fruit trees. The perimeter is enclosed by a mixture of hedging and post and rail fencing. A paved terrace adjacent to the rear of the property provides an ideal area for al fresco entertaining and there is also a separate enclosed courtyard area.
