About this property

  • This very pretty Grade II listed, 17th Century cottage is constructed of cob and flint with a timber frame. It has been carefully renovated and maintained to a high standard, with the full thatch having been replaced last year and the external render replaced with traditional lime render. Several rooms benefit from being dual-aspect.

    The front door opens, via a thatched porch, into a spacious dining room with oak flooring and a traditional Norwegian Jotul woodburning stove. An adjacent sitting room, also with oak flooring, has a fireplace with a woodburning stove and a window-seat. The kitchen/breakfast room, with hand-made oak cabinetry, a butlers sink, granite worktops, a dual-fuel Rangemaster cooker and integrated dishwasher and fridge, looks out over the garden. Travertine flooring runs through the kitchen and into the rear hall, which has fitted cupboards and a door to a sheltered, west-facing courtyard garden. Accessed from the hall is a downstairs shower room and WC and also a utility room, with travertine floor, storage cupboards, butlers sink, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a door to the terrace and rear south and east-facing garden beyond.

    Upstairs is a dual-aspect principal bedroom with built-in cupboards and three further bedrooms, all with built-in cupboards/wardrobes, and a family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms benefit from ethernet wiring.

    A five-bar gate opens onto a gravel driveway, with parking for several cars in front of the garage. A terrace sheltered by a pergola clad with wisteria, roses and honeysuckle sits directly outside the back door, with brick pathways winding up through the densely planted herbaceous beds that border the central lawn. Two ponds nestle amongst the shrubbery. At the top end of the garden are raised vegetable beds, apple trees, a greenhouse and two sheds. To the west of the cottage is a separate enclosed courtyard garden that catches the evening sun.

One of the best presented properties of this age that I have seen and coupled with a fabulous garden.
