About this property

  • Laburnum Cottage is a charming family house which is beautifully presented throughout in a Farrow & Ball/heritage palette. The period character of the cottage has been retained with an abundance of exposed wall and ceiling timbers and working fireplaces in the main reception rooms. This is complemented by modern comforts such as underfloor heating to the ground floor and a spacious garden room and guest bedroom suite extension, creating a desirable family home with highly flexible and stylish accommodation.

    The main house comprises a spacious triple aspect drawing room with doors to the garden, dining room, snug and a lovely kitchen/breakfast room. To the first floor is a principal bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All first floor rooms have vaulted ceilings.

    A superb garden room and guest bedroom suite extension was added in recent years and is linked to the main house via a glass and oak frame link to provide a large entertaining space or additional sitting room with views and bi-fold door access to the garden terrace. The first floor has a guest bedroom with en suite shower room.

    The property is accessed via an electrically operated 5-bar gate opening to a large gravel parking area to the front of the house and detached, oak frame, double garage with automated doors and store room. The front garden has a pedestrian gate in the brick and flint boundary wall and pretty flower beds.

    The rear garden is private and south facing and laid mainly to lawn with large flower borders planted with a variety of perennial plants, shrubs and mature trees including lilac, laburnum, eucalyptus, apple and willow. There is a terrace accessed from the snug, drawing room and garden room providing the perfect place for al fresco dining and enjoying this beautiful garden and setting.
