    About this property

    • A charming 18th century home, full of character and period grace and formerly the village's bakery, this property is thought to have formed a pair of properties at one time and is now a sympathetically renovated single dwelling.

      The grade II listed south facing stone and collyweston detached cottage occupies a discreet position within this Conservation Village, almost at the end of a lane, with little passing traffic to a handful of houses beyond.

      Deceptively spacious, the L-shaped cottage is entered into a wide stone flagged entrance hall, which is flanked by sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room has charm and character, with fitted bookcases to one wall, whilst open plan family kitchen has defined brick tiled flooring, with stone fireplace and oak floored kitchen and dining areas, from which patio doors open to the garden. From the dining area, you can link back to the hall, through a utility and past an office. At first floor there are three charming double bedrooms, served by a family bathroom.

      Accessed by the external front stone staircase, the first floor Granary, is a characterful office space, whilst to the rear of the cottage, there is a detached studio comprising two good-sized creative workspaces and shower/bathroom, which has potential as an ancillary annex (subject to planning). The courtyard garden has been thoughtfully designed with a swing seat and a patio area to enjoy the summer sun, with access to the cottage's dining kitchen.
