    About this property

    • 3 New Cottages is a beautifully presented and well-proportioned semi-detached family home of great character, centrally situated within the sought after village of Shipbourne and well located for local towns and rail links. The house is believed to date from circa 1912, with light, versatile and elegantly appointed accommodation arranged over two floors, ideal for entertaining and family living. Salient points include a stylish kitchen by The Shaker Kitchen company, luxurious bathroom suites, under floor heating to some rooms, an attractive fireplace, tiled floors, high ceilings, a superb garden office, driveway parking, an attractive, established rear garden and delightful views over the village green.


      The open plan reception rooms are light and spacious, comprising an elegant sitting room with a view to the front and an attractive open fireplace, and a dining room with a bank of fitted bookcases with storage under.

      From the dining room, a pair of doors lead to the superb kitchen/breakfast room, which has a generous roof lantern, allowing light to flood the room. The kitchen is fitted with a wide range of bespoke wall and base units by The Shaker Kitchen Company, together with a butler sink, an integral dishwasher and space for other appliances. This room also benefits from under floor heating and has double doors to the rear terrace.

      The well-appointed family bathroom also has under floor heating and completes the ground floor accommodation.

      Arranged over the first floor are three generous bedrooms, one with views to the front over the common and beyond and a bank of fitted wardrobes, with a separate fitted bookcase.

      The stylish tiled shower/wet room is a clever use of space, and is well appointed with a drench head shower, built in wash basin with storage under and a heated wall towel rail.

      The property is approached over a shared driveway, with an area of lawn and a gravel parking area to one side. An attractive cross picket fence with a pedestrian gate and path leads to the front porch and encloses the front garden, which is planted with a variety of perennials and shrubs.

      The part-walled rear garden is a real feature and provides a lovely backdrop to the property. A large decked terrace has several areas ideal for al fresco entertaining, together with the superbly appointed, cedar clad garden room, which has an adjoining cloakroom and storeroom, and is currently utilised as an office.

      A boardwalk path leads to the rest of the garden, which is principally laid to lawn, with deep borders, well stocked with a wide variety of herbaceous shrubs and seasonal flowers, all creating year round interest and colour. To the rear of the garden there is a further seating area, with an adjacent picket fence and garden arbour adorned with wisteria, which screens a vegetable garden with a shed and compost area.

      Agent note: One of the vendors is related to a Savills employee.
