About this property

  • Kettleshill Cottage is set within the picturesque village of Underriver, situated in the Metropolitan Green Belt and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village benefits from a country pub, village hall, church and network of footpaths and bridle paths over the surrounding scenic countryside.

    The property is an immaculately presented semi-detached cottage of charm, offering well-appointed and stylishly finished living space arranged over two floors, ideal for both family living and formal entertaining. Salient points include a bespoke kitchen, modern bathroom suites, feature fireplaces and parquet flooring. Also of note are the impressive, established gardens which include an adjoining paddock and detached garage with a workshop and log store.

    The superb reception areas comprise a spacious family room and sitting room, both with fireplaces inset with wood burning stoves and built-in shelving, and an adjoining dining room.

    The stylish kitchen is well-equipped with a comprehensive range of wall and base units with some integral appliances including an Everhot cooker.

    A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    From the entrance hall stairs ascend to the first floor and three double bedrooms, one with an attractive feature fireplace, and one with an integrated shower cubicle.

    A magnificent family bathroom with an impressive Chadder & Co. free standing bath and twin basins completes the accommodation.

    Kettleshill Cottage is approached over a sweeping driveway flanked by lawns interspersed with a variety of established evergreen and deciduous shrubs and trees, culminating at the detached garage and providing ample off road parking.

    A brick path leads to the front door and a patio with a seating area providing charming views.

    A picket fence separates the side and rear gardens which are predominantly laid to landscaped lawn with a generous tiered paved terrace ideal for al fresco entertaining, with well-stocked brick edged flowerbeds providing year round colour and interest. A post and rail fence divides the adjoining paddock and in total the plot amounts to about 1.52 acres.

I love the location & charm of this character property - the delightful surrounding countryside, far reaching views, local pub & church that Underriver has to offer really do make it the perfect country cottage.
