A charming detached cottage, beautifully presented and with a delightful waterside garden.
Finch Hill Cottage is a charming Grade ll listed thatched cottage which probably dates back to the early 19th century. It is L shaped and has a very pleasing appearance, there being one eyebrow dormer to each side of the angle. Equally there is an attractive link between the newer and older parts, the former having a clay tiled roof. The current owner has comprehensively upgraded the cottage which is now beautifully presented, exceptionally well appointed and yet full of character. The waterside garden complements the cottage and creates a tranquil setting.
The front door opens into a an entrance hall with a limestone flow (extends throughout most of the ground floor) and which links the kitchen with the reception space. The former is particularly well fitted and will include the Rangemaster and SMEG fridge/freezer. It is also a light and airy room having double doors which open out on to the garden terrace. From the hall glazed double doors lead into the cosy sitting room. Here there is a beamed ceiling, original flag stones and an inglenook fireplace with a former bread oven, A second door leads into the study which has access to the garden. Beyond is the second bedroom with en suite bathroom. A staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor which has solid oak flooring. The bedroom incorporates a deep walk-in wardrobe and the separate bathroom includes a free standing roll top bath.
Adjacent to the house is the wide terrace which can be approached from the hall, kitchen and study area. Beyond is the easily managed garden which is mainly lawned and part hedged. At the bottom is a spring fed chalk stream. The outbuildings include a tool shed, log store, kennelling and a very good sized timber workshop.
There is private parking for one car which is located on the other side of The City.
