About this property

  • This beautiful, Grade II Listed cottage dates back to the 17th century where it was a former farmhouse and occupies a wonderful position backing onto open farmland with some stunning, far reaching views across the surrounding countryside. The current owners have painstakingly and sensitively renovated this charming cottage to a high standard making a wonderful and cosy family home retaining a wealth of period features whilst also enjoying an extended kitchen full of natural light.

    Built to make the very best of its position, the property is south-facing with light-filled rooms all enjoying views over the beautifully landscaped gardens. A bright and spacious hallway leads through to the formal dining room with dual aspect, solid wood flooring and wonderful period features. Beyond this is the striking double aspect sitting room with impressive exposed beams and a charming inglenook fireplace with a modern, Aga woodburning stove.

    Extended in 2005, the internal space has been greatly improved with a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room with a range of modern and stylish fitted units, range cooker and a walk in pantry. This room is a wonderful addition with vaulted ceiling and French doors opening onto the south facing patio and gardens. Further accommodation on the ground floor include a good-sized utility room fitted with a range of units as well as WC, useful under stairs storage and a double aspect study making a lovely space for home-working, or alternatively could be used as a fourth bedroom.

    To the first floor, there are three beautifully finished, south facing double bedrooms, all enjoying fine views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The principal bedroom suite is a generous space, flooded with light from windows to both the front and rear, enjoying far-reaching views. There is a well-appointed, en suite shower room and fitted wardrobes.

    Gardens and Grounds
    Set in approximately 0.68 acres, the gardens of Little Nettacott have been beautifully designed and maintained by the current owners. Surrounded by farmland, the gardens are wonderfully private, extending mainly to the south. Approached via a gravelled driveway, the property benefits from two garages (one currently used partially as a workshop) and additional storage space, which could have much potential subject to any necessary consents. There is an area of patio to the front of the property providing an ideal entertaining space and an array of fruit trees, fruit cage, fenced vegetable garden, greenhouse, log store and shed. There are large areas of level lawned gardens as well as well stocked beds and borders making a gardeners paradise.
