Characterful 1930s family home set in over an acre of gardens, situated on the semi-rural edge of the village.
Characterised in an attractive Tudor style of brick and oak beam, Thyme Cottage and the nearby Sandhill House were built in the 1930s; it is understood that Thyme Cottage was originally the garaging and chauffeur's cottage for its neighbour. Set in well-enclosed mature gardens, the property is situated in a semi-rural location on the south eastern edge of the village, benefitting from easy access to both the surrounding countryside and the village's many amenities.
Thyme Cottage offers versatile accommodation over two floors, with the rooms extending across the northern side of the ground floor allowing the potential to create a self-contained annexe. The floor plans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the house; particular points of note include the generous sitting room which features a large brick fireplace with raised hearth, and a raised dais with woodblock flooring currently used as a music area. There are two further reception rooms, an office, and access to a ground floor bedroom and shower room which together form a suite ideal for guests.
The kitchen was extended by the current owners to form a farmhouse-style kitchen and breakfast room, with range oven, central island and adjoining utility/boot room.
The lovely principal suite is on the first floor and can be accessed via a secondary staircase. It comprises a large bedroom, bathroom with roll-top bath and a dressing area with a walk-in wardrobe and a private balcony overlooking the gardens. There are four further bedrooms on the first floor served by a spacious family bathroom; bedroom six is currently used as a second study.
Outside, Thyme Cottage is approached via a gated gravelled driveway, which passes the house and leads to the parking area and garaging beyond. The house is surrounded by well-enclosed and private gardens: there is an area of lawn to the west with a number of handsome mature trees; to the north of house is a well-enclosed terraced area with timber log stores, ideal for garden storage. The formal garden lies to the east: there is a paved terrace adjacent to the house, offering an ideal spot for al fresco dining; the terrace leads out to an area of level lawnl. Beyond here is a picket fence and a further expanse of grass bounded by hedging. About 1.04 acres.
