About this property

  • 2 Village House Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed Victorian cottage of considerable charm, dating from the early 19th century and formerly attached to The Dower House.
    The property, with its flint front elevations, has been sympathetically extended and well-maintained by the current owners, providing stylishly presented and well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors. Salient features include a solid oak kitchen, modern bathroom suites, feature flint walls, an attractive fireplace, multi-pane windows, a striking orangery, a garden office and a delightful south facing walled rear garden which measures about 125 foot in length. Also of particular note is the property's superb central location within this popular village and the excellent road and rail links.

    The spacious sitting room has feature flint walls and an attractive brick fireplace, inset with a gas fire and is linked via a stable door to the superb orangery, which provides a dining area, reading area and features a striking glass roof lantern, with access to and lovely views over the rear garden.

    The stylish kitchen is well-equipped with a comprehensive range of solid oak wall and base units, a glass display unit and integral appliances.

    A well-appointed cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    Arranged over the first floor are three bright bedrooms, two with fitted storage.

    A modern family bathroom with a skylight completes the accommodation.

    The cottage fronts onto the village green with borders planted with a variety of herbaceous shrubs and a paved path leading to the front door.

    The established, walled south facing rear garden is a real feature and forms a lovely backdrop to the property. A generous paved terrace is ideal for al fresco entertaining and there are two further seating areas within the garden. There are raised beds planted with a variety of colourful perennials and an area of lawn flanked by deep borders, well-stocked with a wide variety of mature shrubs, herbaceous plants and specimen trees all providing year-round colour, interest and a high degree of privacy. Within the garden there is a home office with flint elevations, which has power and light connected and three garden implement stores, two of which are also connected with power and light. A garden gate provides right of way access to the front of the property.
