    About this property

    • Fir Tree Cottage is a particularly pretty period family home, with a private and sheltered garden. Dating from 1750 with later additions, it is constructed of cobb, stone and brick under a predominantly thatched roof.

      Entrance is via an attractive timber-framed porch into a double-ended entrance hall, which also has a stable door into the garden. To one side is a spacious, triple-aspect drawing room, with an open fire and French doors into the garden. The dining room is dual-aspect and leads through to a study with an open fire. A dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room, with a stone-tiled floor, has a range of fitted cupboards with wooden work surfaces, an Aga and integrated appliances including a fan oven, gas hob and dishwasher. It opens into a rear hall, with access to the terrace and garden beyond. A utility room has built-in cupboards, a sink and plumbing for a washing machine. It also has a door to the garden. The library benefits from extensive, bespoke fitted bookshelves and a glazed door to the garden. Completing the ground floor are two double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, a shower room and a walk-in pantry/flower room. This ground floor wing of the property could be adapted to create an annexe/independent living area subject to the necessary consents.

      A split staircase leads from the dining room. One side offering access to the dual-aspect principal bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, including a hidden door to an en suite bathroom. The opposite side of the staircase leads to a second bedroom, with en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.

      The cottage is approached from the quiet village road onto a gravel driveway in front of a timber-framed double car port, with integral workshops and additional storage on a mezzanine level above. The secluded garden is particularly pretty, with deep herbaceous borders, stone terraces, additional outbuildings/storage and a large, enclosed chicken run to one side.
