About this property

  • Applecroft is a fascinating listed building with a rich history dating back to the fifteenth century with later additions making it a charming cottage in a sought after location on the edge of the Green. The house was originally a Hall house and it is understood to have been used as a communal hall brewery.

    Many of the original beams are still visible, enhancing the rich heritage of this ancient building which is believed to be the oldest one in the village. The cottage is approached via a gate from the Green through a pretty south facing cottage garden. The south facing sitting room has a double aspect onto the green with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. The dining room enjoys the same southerly aspect and has opening doors onto the conservatory. This bright room provides access to the garden, garage and the pretty terrace. The kitchen has a range of units and appliances with a built in larder. The cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor the principle bedroom is double aspect with some marvellous beams. Bedroom two has built in wardrobes. The family bathroom has a walk-in shower and a large storage cupboard.

    Applecroft has a charming cottage garden to the front of the property with a good selection of shrubs. To the side of the cottage is a terrace and access to the generous garage. The garden has an original Anderson shelter that is used as a garden store.
