In recent years, the house and gardens have been remodeled to create a comfortable contemporary home with all the technology needed for modern living.

    Internally, Spindlebuck Cottage provides well-proportioned accommodation on two floors. The bright welcoming entrance hall leads on to the kitchen/breakfast room. With its Miele hob, excellent Rangemaster cooker and adjoining pantry this is a great family space for a keen cook. The sitting room benefits from a Clearview multi-fuel burner and opens out onto the delightful sunroom, making it an ideal flexible space for dining, entertaining or a playroom; the French doors provide additional natural light into this everyday space, creating a bright heart to the home with garden and countryside views.

For homeworkers there is a cosy study in the house and a further purpose-built main office in a secluded garden spot.

The generous bedrooms offer an abundance of natural light, good storage and splendid views of the garden and beyond. Externally the property is framed by professionally designed gardens approaching half an acre. The rear garden, benefiting from its own vegetable patch, fruit trees, wooden greenhouse and play area provide the ideal family space with an air of tranquility.
