    About this property

    • Nags Head Cottage is a beautiful, well presented and sympathetically renovated Grade ll Listed cottage, nestled in the heart of the Chilterns, in the sought after village of Nettlebed.

      The property is believed to have originated in the mid c.17th century and has an attractive local red brick front façade. The property was historically one of five inns in Nettlebed and became a residential dwelling prior to the war.

      Upon entering you are greeted by a light and airy dining reception hall with a charming open inglenook fireplace and a stable door to the rear of the room, allowing access to the rear garden. To the right is an beautifully presented kitchen featuring bespoke cabinetry, quartz worktops, original exposed beams and a Velux window. Along with a range of base units, there is a breakfast bar, providing a social feel and a larder for storage. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a breakfast room for more informal dining and relaxing. To the left of the dining area, is a cozy sitting room boasting a wood burning stove, set into an exposed brick fireplace. Ascending a few stairs from the sitting room is the study with ample storage space, book shelves and a window overlooking the garden, creating an inspiring workspace. Completing the downstairs is a cloakroom with room for utilities.

      On the first floor, the current owners have enhanced the landing space by raising the ceiling height and installing Velux windows along with sleek glass banisters, creating a space that is flooded with light. The charming old beams are visible and have been made a prominent feature on the landing, in keeping with the character of the home. The principal bedroom and bedroom two boast bright and inviting spaces; both have integral storage solutions and retain original beams to display the rich history of the property. Completing the first floor is a further double bedroom and the family bathroom.

      The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn bordered by mature shrubs and trees. Two well-placed seating areas provide ideal spots to relax in the sunlight at different times of the day, offering a perfect setting for alfresco dining and entertaining during the warmer months. There is access to the garden from the road behind and there is ample space for a large storage shed, ensuring practicality alongside its natural beauty.
