About this property

  • Yew Tree Cottage is situated on a most attractive cobbled no-through road adjacent to the fine parish Church of St Barnabas. The house is likely to date back to the 17th century and accordingly has a wealth of period features including flagstone and stripped wood floors, open fireplaces and exposed ceiling timbers and has undergone a complete refurbishment in the last ten years together with the addition of a superb sympathetic extension providing the perfect link between period character and modern living styles. A flagstone hallway draws the eye from the front to the back of the property with the two main reception rooms being either side, both of which have wonderful flagstone fireplaces, timber framed walls and exposed ceiling timbers typical of a building of this age. To the rear of the original house is a study with tiled floor and views over the garden and a useful utility room. To the rear of the main house is an outstanding single storey extension providing a well appointed kitchen with four oven Aga, space for dining and a seating area overlooking the mature landscaped gardens. On the first floor is a principal bedroom with en suite, a further double bedroom and separate bathroom. On the second floor are two further bedrooms.

    Outside
    The property is approached via the cobbled Church Path which is most attractive and bordered on both sides by period stone properties leading to the fine parish church. The private gravelled drive from the lane opens out to provide ample parking and access to excellent garaging and workshop space. The gardens are found mostly to the rear of the property facing in a southerly direction, with a good size terrace wrapping around the single storey kitchen extension, bordered by a pretty stone wall with steps up to the main lawn. The garden has been thoughtfully designed and landscaped, is fully enclosed and level and mature shrubs, borders and trees provide seclusion on the boundary. From the garden there are lovely views towards the church tower.
