About this property

  • A charming, wisteria-clad double-fronted detached period cottage (unlisted), enviably located in the heart of this most sought-after village, within striking distance of the church and the village shop/Post Office. The cottage occupies a corner plot, with a generous, well stocked garden to the front, rear and to the side.
    The cottage boasts an elegant and timeless ambience, with neutral decor throughout which enhances the natural light. Underfloor heating on the ground floor and well-proportioned
    rooms give excellent flow of accommodation. Generous reception space is provided, with the inviting entrance hall leading to the large and elegant yet cosy sitting room with wood-burning stove, fitted cabinets and French doors to the patio and garden. The dining room is central to the house and
    leads to a cloakroom with a WC and hand basin and a dual aspect study to the rear with views over the garden. The country-style kitchen with exposed beams is well fitted, benefits from a pantry, and opens into a light and airy family dining area to the rear off which is a utility room with door
    to outside.
    The principal bedroom on the first floor boasts an en suite shower room, fitted wardrobes plus an additional room which is ideal as a further storage/dressing room. The guest double bedroom also has an en suite whilst the two further double bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.

    Outside, there is a separate rear entrance to an additional room with exposed beams and views of the garden which
    could be utilised as a home office, studio, a treatment room (there is a basin) or a variety of other uses.
    The stunning rear garden is largely laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and hedging. The detached wooden garage with brick floor was thought to be a former forge and still has a fireplace in situ. The garage could easily be upgraded and there is also potential to create a formal parking area to the side of the property, all subject to relevant consents. There is also a large greenhouse and a useful shed.
