About this property

  • Fairmay is a handsome semi-detached cottage, believed to date from the turn of 20th century, with brick elevations under a tiled roof. The property was acquired by the current owner in 2012, and was the subject of significant renovation, and today offers spacious and bright accommodation arranged over two floors.

    The property is approached via a porch, which opens to the entrance hall, which gives access to the sitting room and to the study.

    The sitting room has solid oak flooring, reclaimed radiators and an open fireplace with granite hearth. It is open to the dining room, offering a good flow which is ideal for entertaining – the dining room also has the benefit of French doors to the rear terrace.

    The kitchen has been stylishly refitted with black quartz surfaces and white cupboards, with space for a free standing fridge freezer and electric range cooker. The kitchen leads on to the study, which has views to the front, another open fireplace and an adjoining cloakroom which completes the ground floor.

    The wooden stairs lead up to the first floor, where there are three bedrooms; the principal bedroom is dual aspect and open to its dressing area, fitted with an excellent range of wardrobes, and is served by an en suite shower room. A bathroom with beautiful contemporary fittings serves bedrooms two and three.

    Fairmay is set slightly back from the road, approached by a driveway providing off street parking for several cars ahead of the attached two bay garage.

    The extensive gardens are a particular feature of the property. The front garden is set behind hedging, ensuring a degree of privacy. The major portion of the garden lies to the rear, and is fully enclosed with a gate providing access to the front at the side of the garaging.

    Close to the house is a charming terrace, offering a lovely spot to sit, with beds retained by heavy wood sleepers; steps lead up to a kitchen garden with raised beds and pergola to the rear, a shed and a greenhouse. Beyond lies a mature orchard with an array of soft fruit trees. Liquidambar trees line the rear boundary, creating a vibrant autumnal display.

    In all, about 0.45 of an acre.
