About this property

  • Barn Close Cottage is an attractive detached cottage. It is full of charm and character and has a delightful southerly facing garden, off-road parking and garaging. Grade II listed, the cottage has been considerably updated by the current owner, who has created a first class beautifully presented village home.

    The front door opens into a hallway with limestone flooring, with access to the sitting room and study. These, with the dining room, line the south face of the house. The sitting room is charming with exposed beams, log burning stove within a brick fireplace with slate hearth and French doors to the flagstone garden terrace. The study has another log burner and garden access, whilst the wood floored dining room has a feature fireplace and adjoins a recently fitted kitchen with hand built Oak cabinets with a lime wash, beneath marbled work surfaces. A generous utility, with side entrance to the garden, and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    A wide staircase rises from the study. All three bedrooms are doubles, with south facing views of the garden, and are served by a well-appointed family bathroom, with an oversized bath.

    The gardens are walled and fenced, with a forecourt front garden with roses and a picket gate and pathway leading to the front door. A five bar gate accesses the gravelled driveway and carport. The principal gardens face south east and are a delight, with a stone flagged terrace adjoining the house and extensive lawns interspersed by flowering beds, shrubs and fruit trees.

I have sold this property before in my career and have always been taken by it. I love its attractive appearance and village setting, whilst the garden is fabulous and exactly what I would seek with energetic children. I find it a compelling home.
