A charming detached period house with extensive parking and gardens
With an incredible history and locally listed Building of Townscape Merit, Woodbine Cottage is a 17th century picturesque home and situated in an idyllic setting in Petersham village.
With a truly lateral configuration, set over just two floors (plus a cellar), the property is a characterful detached double fronted home and set on a generous plot with a sweeping driveway and double garage.
The rear garden is beautifully landscaped with mature trees, lawn and patio, having previously featured in the Petersham open gardens.
On entering the property through the ornate pilastered entrance canopy with corbelled moulds, you are welcomed into a grand hallway. Occupying the full depth of this home, a dual aspect reception room with French doors and ornate gas fire provides a wonderful outlook on to the rear garden and a further reception room to the front of the property provides a a space currently arranged as a dining room. An under stairs WC is found to the rear of the house and a study with bay window and feature fireplace leads in to the kitchen with a bespoke Smallbone wooden kitchen.
To the rear of the double garage the ground floor extends further to provide an informal self-contained apartment with kitchen, bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and reception/bedroom. There is also a utility room currently established within one fo the garage bays.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms including a main bedroom with dressing area and ensuite bathroom with separate bath and shower.
Having been in the same family since 1986 the property would benefit from scheduled refurbishment works which would only serve to enhance the character and the feel that this home offers in abundance.
In addition, this home also has historical importance with Charles Dickens purportedly having lived at the property in the 1830s where he wrote The Pickwick Papers.
