Pretty cottage and garden in a spectacular village location.
With idyllic views across meadows and agricultural parkland, this picturesque semi-detached cottage set in 1/4 of an acre dates to around 1860. It has been sympathetically updated and extended by the present owners to create a charming family home. The original arched front door opens to a central hallway which leads to all ground floor rooms. The sitting room, spanning the depth of the cottage, has an open fire and glazed French doors to the garden room. The dining room, also with a fireplace, built in shelves and cupboards, overlooks the front garden. A terracotta tiled floor runs through the kitchen and the garden room to the western aspect of the cottage. Oak units sit beneath granite effect worktops with integrated dishwasher and fridge, ceramic hob and a Miele oven. A stable door and glazed French doors open to the terrace from the kitchen and garden room respectively. There is also a cloakroom off the hall. Stairs wind to a galleried landing leading directly to four bedrooms and a family bathroom. A loft hatch with attached wooden ladder leads up to a large, boarded storage attic.
A gravel driveway with parking for three cars opens to a pretty cottage garden that wraps around three sides and offers privacy, space, sun throughout the day and beautiful sunsets. Mature hedging, shrubs and herbaceous borders feature. Just beyond the terrace, a brick outhouse has been repurposed as a good-sized utility room. There are two further garden sheds, a greenhouse, Wendy house and pond.
