A beautifully presented cottage in a picturesque setting within the sought after village of Norton St. Philip.
Ringwell Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed family house, presented in beautiful condition and subject to stylish interior design. It provides a wonderful family home which has the benefit of all the modern conveniences, whilst retaining a wealth of period features.
The front door opens into the sitting room with lovely period features including inglenook fire place fitted with wood burning stove and beamed ceiling, window seats and fitted bookshelves. To the right of the hall, is a family room/TV room with beamed ceiling, inglenook fireplace and the original bread oven.
The kitchen/dining room is the heart of the house providing a lantern rooflight and bi-folding doors, creating a wonderful family living space. The kitchen has been designed for entertaining and offers an excellent range of fitted units in timeless shaker style, with a large island unit fitted with a butler sink, two built in ovens and two dishwashers. Bi-folding doors open directly from here onto a pretty sun terrace providing an outside room, perfect for al fresco dining. The utility room is located adjacent to the kitchen and has plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
The dining area also has French doors opening onto a second terrace with access up to the garden and at the rear of the dining area is a cloakroom. A step down from here leads to the drawing room, beautifully presented in a contemporary style with three French windows overlooking the front garden.
Upstairs, on the first floor, there is a good sized landing giving access to all four bedrooms. At the far end, the master bedroom is spacious with two windows and fitted window seat overlooking the front, large walk-in dressing cupboard, en suite bathroom with contemporary freestanding bath and a separate shower. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, one with a newly installed en suite shower room and the other two sharing a lovely family bathroom.
Ringwell Cottage is positioned on the western outskirts of the village on a quiet lane. The gated driveway leads into a large gravelled parking area, from where a pathway leads you to the front door over a pretty brook and up to the house. The rear garden has stepped access from the sun terrace outside the kitchen, leading to a further decked terrace, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the wonderful rural views. Nearby is a timber summerhouse, providing garden storage. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs and adjoins neighbouring farmland, with a large garden shed installed at the back of the garden overlooking the next door fields.
The owners have recently acquired a second parcel of land adjacent to the gated driveway, a large section of lawned garden running alongside the brook, with a section of pretty woodland at the rear as well as views over the nearby farmland. This secondary garden offers potential, possibly for a glamping/holiday rental, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
