About this property

  • This delightful period cottage was originally a pair plus an adjoining shop with bay window which have subsequently been amalgamated to create a really charming family home. Thought to be of late 16th/early 17th Century origins with an early 18th century frontage, the property is Listed Grade II as being of historical and architectural interest and has rendered elevations beneath a peg tiled roof with later pan tiled extension(s) to the rear.

    Some of the features of note within the listing are the early 17th century red brick ridge stack of three diagonally set linked shafts and a moulded brick eaves cornice. Original hall and east crosswing plan, altered in the late C17 or early C18 when the roof was rebuilt in a straight range.

    Church Street is right in the heart of the village and the property has the benefit of parking for two cars in tandem to the rear with an electric charging point. A detached barn to one side of the garden has been sympathetically converted by the vendors creating a charming guest suite of bedroom and shower room and a second bedroom or office to the rear overlooking the garden.

    The two main reception rooms, the lounge and snug, flank the entrance lobby, both having exposed timbers and fitted woodburners. The main sitting room to the right links directly to the kitchen/dining room and the adjoining former shop/reception/playroom. The snug to the left incorporates the staircase to the first floor. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboards, drawers and has Corian worktops, with various fitted appliances including a Neff oven, microwave, induction hob and dishwasher, and an AEG extractor. There are French doors to the garden and a more recent extension led to the creation of the dining area which in turn opens into the reception/playroom at the far end. In addition there is a utility room, a rear lobby to the garden and spacious ground floor bathroom with bath and shower cubicle.

    On the first floor, there are four bedrooms all of which face the front. The stunning principal double having a vaulted ceiling, a former brick fireplace and raised mezzanine store area there is a second double room together with two singles and a shower/cloaks.

    Outside the south facing garden is laid mainly to lawn with access to one side to the tandem parking area and electric car charging point. The garden also incorporates a timber framed detached barn, now the annexe, which the vendors have carefully converted during their tenure into a bedroom, en suite shower room and adjoining office/study. With electric heating, the barn was insulated during the conversion and the wonderful wide elm boards have been retained as a partition between the two spaces.

    The full layout can be seen on the enclosed fully dimensioned floorplan.
