    About this property

    • Oak Cottage is quintessential detached property in the heart of the village, with charming, attractive honey coloured stone elevations under a part thatched, part tiled roof. The house is dated 1755 and accordingly retains many period features including exposed timbers, fireplaces and stone floors whilst at the same time having a fabulous, contemporary kitchen extension to the rear, with hand built kitchen and AGA and bi-fold doors to outside. Stairs from here lead up to a bedroom above with an en suite shower room.

      On the ground floor the original house provides a large, characterful drawing room with exposed ceiling timbers and stone walls and impressive inglenook fireplace. There is a further sitting room, also with inglenook and an attractive hallway with timber screen and exposed beams. Also on the ground floor is a utility room, cloakroom and superbly appointed family bathroom with shower. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

      Oak Cottage is approached from the lane via a driveway where there is parking for several cars. To the front of the property is an elevated stone path with access to the covered porch. From the parking area at the rear a gate opens onto a large terrace with bi-folding doors to the kitchen extension. The garden stretches out from the rear of the house, is level and mostly laid to lawn with mature hedging giving privacy to the boundaries. In the garden are some attractive mature trees and there are distant views to Boarsbarrow Hill. On the north eastern boundary of the garden is a substantial outbuilding providing storage and a games room.
