About this property

  • Yewtree Cottage dates to circa 1780 and has been lovingly restored by the present owners, with meticulous attention to detail, finest quality materials and a mellow color palette. Whilst maintaining and enhancing all the period features, the contemporary additions marry seamlessly with the original cottage, creating a warm and welcoming family home that has a pleasing flow throughout.

    The entrance hall opens directly to the stunning contemporary kitchen. With its southerly and westerly aspects and large roof lantern, this room is flooded with natural light. Bi-fold doors span the west wall opening to the terrace and gardens beyond. Bespoke painted wooden units by Langstaff-Ellis house high end appliances including Bora and Fisher & Paykel and sit beneath a pale stone worktop. A large island houses deep, wide storage drawers to one side and a breakfast bar with storage cupboards beneath to the other.

    Steps lead up to the atmospheric dining room with its oak floor, wooden shutters and wood burning stove nestled within its fireplace. The dual aspect sitting room is a delight. Beams, oak flooring, wooden shutters and red brick fireplace, once housing the original range, now housing a large wood burning stove, all feature. From here, steps down lead on to the rear hall where the study/bedroom four, cloakroom (with large shower) and utility room lead back to the front hall. The generous cellar, with its wide stone steps, is accessed from the sitting room.

    The principal bedroom has southerly and easterly aspects with a fabulous en suite bathroom, with cast iron freestanding bath, and large separate shower. There is also a useful walk-in cupboard. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, also with cast iron freestanding bath and separate shower.

It's like the cottage in "The Holiday", only better! I can imagine walks to the village pub across the fields, cosy nights sitting by the fire or spoiling lucky friends with supper the stunning kitchen. You can do it all at this wonderful home.
