    About this property

    • Meadow Cottage is a delightful semi-detached property, originally believed to have been built in the late 19th century, and significantly extended in the 1980s. It is situated on a rural lane in Wineham, and sits in expansive gardens of about half an acre. Meadow Cottage has clearly been a much-loved family home, offering a versatile layout arranged over two floors.

      On the ground floor, the entrance porch opens to the dining room, which could be used as a study; the adjacent sitting room is triple aspect, capturing the sun all day, and has a working fireplace and French doors to the south facing terrace. Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen/breakfast room, situated in the oldest portion of the house; it offers an excellent range of wall hung and under counter fitted units, space for table and chairs plus a breakfast bar, and a new and efficient Rayburn cooker combining cooking, heating and hot water. In addition, there is a conventional electric oven and hob. To the side of the kitchen is the family room, which is west facing and has doors to the garden; beyond is utility/boot room and a WC.

      On the first floor, the principal bedroom is dual aspect, with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, two with fitted cupboards; these are served by a family bathroom with shower cubicle and separate bath.

      Outside
      Meadow Cottage is set behind hedging, and approached via an in-and-out driveway which offers ample parking for several vehicles. To the south of the house is a brick and timber outbuilding which offers single garaging plus workshop/storage space; there is an additional timber summer house.

      A large paved terrace spans the west elevation of the house, wrapping around to the south and offering a wonderful space for entertaining with plenty of room for garden furniture. The slightly elevated garden is mainly laid to level lawn, with mature trees and shrubs to the southern boundary and an open outlook across the surrounding countryside to the west. The generous plot extends to just over half an acre.
