About this property

  • Accessed via a private drive, Fiveways Cottage is an impressive 1920's property, set in wonderful mature, landscaped gardens. The property has been transformed by the current owners to provide well-presented, versatile accommodation with character features. There is further potential to enhance the first floor, with the option of creating four bedrooms. The property, which extends to about 0.56 acres features impressive 360 degree views over gently undulating, open countryside.

    The central hallway leads to a spacious dual aspect sitting room, which provides a light and versatile space with a wood burning stove, wood panelling and wooden floor. This leads to a further garden room / snug area with doors into the garden. The generous and stylish kitchen has been significantly extended and re-fitted to provide a real heart of the home. With a vaulted ceiling, integrated sound system, bespoke handmade tiles, solid oak work surfaces and doors onto the terrace, it is an impressive room with plenty of room to dine and entertain. The dual aspect study features an charming open fire with original tiles. There is also a utility room with Belfast sink, boot room and downstairs WC with a bespoke hand basin.

    The first floor provides a principal bedroom with wood panelling and a recently re-fitted en suite shower room, featuring Fired Earth tiles and eaves storage. The second bedroom is very generous and with a dual aspect and features a wall of in-built wardrobes, en suite shower room and eaves storage. This offers the potential to be converted into two bedrooms. There is a further double bedroom and a stylish, recently refitted family bathroom featuring Fired Earth tiles. All of the first floor rooms feature enviable views over surrounding countryside.

    The private driveway leads to a parking area for several cars. The property also benefits from a recently constructed brick workshop and store and a single timber garage. Extending to about 0.56 acres, the mature landscaped garden provides a real oasis. A large terrace is the ideal spot to entertain, while the rest of the garden, with ponds, woodland and lawn features a vast number of specimen trees and shrubs, including magnolia, Japanese maples, silver birch and clematis.

It's rare to come across such an idyllic garden and 360 degree countryside views. I love the transformation that has taken place at the property over recent years.
