About this property

  • Beal Cottage is a highly individual period village house which has been the subject of a significant programme of modernisation and improvement, which has seen the property almost completely remodelled and extended forming a perfectly balanced home ideally suited to modern living. In addition to the structural changes to the property has been re-insulated, re-wired, including CAT 5/6, as well as an improved central heating system incorporating under floor heating throughout the ground floor, fed by an air source heat pump. The highlight has to be the new extension to the rear of the house which incorporates a stylish kitchen and space for dining and sitting on either side, all bordered by floor to ceiling bi-folding doors.

    The majority of the rooms have been thoughtfully rearranged and extended whilst preserving the original features. All are now of near perfect proportions and well served by utility rooms/areas. As well as benefiting from all available natural light the rooms enjoy contrasting views of the landscaped gardens and rolling countryside beyond.

    The first and second floors have been almost completely redesigned, now boasting four good-sized double bedrooms, including a fabulous principle bedroom suite with bi-folding windows framing some incredible views towards the White Horse. There is a beautifully appointed family bathroom on the first floor and a large en-suite bedroom on the 2nd, perfect for guests.

    In addition to the main house there is a timber lodge to one side, originally the village hardware store erected in 1908, currently serving as a children's nursery but could be easily adapted to form a rentable holiday cottage or workspace. There is also an original brick built barn, once the Blacksmiths, located towards the rear of the garden which provides useful storage but could be adapted to form further accommodation if desired (subject to the necessary consents).

This is a deceptively large property which wows around every corner, with a separate timber lodge providing a versatile business opportunity.
