An idyllic thatched cottage in a wonderfully peaceful setting.
Swainscombe was built in 1612 of green sandstone elevations under a thatched roof which was completely re-thatched in 2017 by a reputable local thatcher. It is a delightful property with versatile, accommodation arranged over two floors. It is not listed but throughout the property there are many appealing period features, including exposed beams and attractive inglenook fireplaces, leaded light windows and an Aga.
Extended in the 1980s to add two wings to the back, the property has two staircases, and it would be very simple to use the property for multi generational living, as a guest house, Airbnb or as a home office.
Swainscombe is approached off the lane to a large car parking area for several cars which adjoins the Garage.
The property itself is approached through a tall metal gate with a path leading to the porch.
The two main receptions are in the older part of the house. There is a further reception room in the newer part of the house currently used as a library and office which is light and bright.
There is a large family kitchen which is the hub of the home with an Aga and oak fitted kitchen units and worktops. Off the kitchen is the utility room leading to the garden.
The two main bedrooms are in the oldest part of the house and feature beamed ceilings. There is a sunny bedroom in the East wing overlooking the garden and two on the West wing. There is a bathroom on each side of the house serving all bedrooms.
The setting of Swainscombe is particularly appealing, as it is very private and completely peaceful.
There are established gardens surrounding the property extending to 0.6 acres while at the far end of one lawn is a detached timber garden office/ workshop.
A path leads up to a further area of garden with the loose boxes currently used for storage, and beyond this to the ample car parking area and double garage. Subject to usual consents there could be scope to convert the loose boxes in to an office or ancillary accommodation.
