About this property

  • Built in the mid-19th century, Banksia Cottage is a delightful three storey stone built home, situated in the idyllic hamlet of Cleveley. Maintained over the years, Banksia still retains a wealth of charming period features throughout , yet still provides a wonderfully light and spacious property.

    On the ground floor is the sitting room. Filled with character features including a stone fire place with log burner, exposed beams and a charming window seat with aspect to the front of the property, it also has a lovely, welcoming feel. There is a door that leads through to the kitchen which offers an oven and hob, space for white goods, and plenty of storage with a range of wall and base units, room for a breakfast table, plus a back door leading to the garden.

    Continuing up to the first floor is the first of two bedrooms. A generous double bedroom, character continues with exposed beams and exposed stone walls. There are two cupboards with plenty of storage too. On the second floor is another double bedroom and a family bathroom in need of some modernisation, both of which are spacious. Both bedrooms also benefit from wonderful views of the surrounding, rolling countryside.

    Outside is an enviable, private garden. Mostly laid to lawn, there is an abundance of mature trees, hedges, shrubs and flower beds to be enjoyed too. At the far end of the garden is a summerhouse with power and electric. Leading from the kitchen back door, there is also a sunny, raised decking area, perfect for summer entertaining. The property also offers two off road parking spaces.
