About this property

  • Pippin Cottage is a charming detached period cottage set in its own grounds down the end of a private driveway, neighbouring the open countryside and offering in excess of 2,000 sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors.

    With the original cottage built in stone with rendered elevations, and the later addition block built with exposed stone facing, this delightful cottage offers comfortable living along with the potential to add and extend to the existing property (subject to any necessary permissions).

    Inside, the house benefits from period features including open fireplaces, wooden parquet flooring and exposed beams. There are two good reception rooms as well as a kitchen/breakfast room with direct access to the gardens. To the middle of the ground floor is a useful home office area which could also be used as a snug.

    To the first floor are the bedrooms along with an en suite shower room and family bathroom.

    Outside
    Approached off a private track which leads down to the house, there is a wooden five-bar gate that leads into a large gravel parking and turning area, which in turn leads to the double detached garage. The gardens surround the home and are predominantly laid to lawn. There is an orchard and vegetable produce area, a wildlife area with feature pond to another and formal lawns in front of the house, along with a paved terrace ideal for entertaining and benefitting from direct access to the kitchen/breakfast room.

    There is a sunken lined swimming pool run from an air source heater, ideal for taking the edge off long warm summers. The established gardens are planted with well stocked flower beds and a number of shrubs and trees.

    There are open views across neighbouring fields and countryside, yet the gardens still offer a great deal of privacy. In addition there is a brick-built single stable, a summer house and a number of garden sheds.
