About this property

  • An attractive and unlisted 17th century stone house in the centre of the village, 88 High Street Laxton Cottage) offers deceptively spacious accommodation house over two floors, which retains period grace, proportions and features, coupled with a fabulous garden, gated driveway and garage and a detached two storey stone barn, which it is thought to have potential for incorporation within the house, subject to consents, or to have potential for a multitude of ancillary uses.

    The front door opens into a wide, parquet floored entrance hallway with exposed stonework walls, the original bread oven, a cloakroom/WC off, and steps descending to a half landing cellar. The hallway is open to a central dining hallway, separated by a wide inglenook fireplace with salt cellars either side, and again has the wood parquet flooring, as well as a wide window seat. The sitting room occupies the far end of the house and is dual-aspect with a mullion window, with a high timber beamed ceiling and an impressive stone fireplace.

    The kitchen is a symmetrical room fitted with a shaker style suite with wall and base units under wood effect tops, incorporating an induction hob and double oven, with integrated dishwasher, fridge and washing machine. From the hallway, a spacious office, or fourth bedroom, is accessed through a garden room, from which doors open to the garden's stone flagged terrace.

    At first floor, a wide landing corridor accesses three large double bedrooms, which are served by a spacious, panelled and vaulted bathroom, with bath and separate shower cubicle.

    Double gates provide access to the gravelled driveway and a single garage. The gardens are lawned and enclosed by walls and mature hedgerow, with a stone terrace between the house and detached two storey outbuilding.

What a lovely cottage this is, it's unlisted and full of character, a plethora of ideas come to mind for the untouched two storey barn in the pretty garden.
