About this property

  • Manor Cottage is a detached period property situated in the heart of the village. It is believed to date from 1760 and is built of stone under a tiled roof. In recent years, it has been sympathetically and extensively improved and renovated, whilst preserving its period charm.

    The ground floor rooms are well proportioned and the sitting room is double aspect with French doors to the garden, a log burning stove and low level fitted cupboards. The kitchen/breakfast room is very well appointed with handmade, in-frame units with Silestone work surfaces and a chequered, quarry tile floor. The quality appliances include a wine cooler and dishwasher with Siemens integrated fridge/freezer, under counter freezer, washer/dryer and extractor hood. Off the kitchen is a second sitting/dining room with windows on three sides, a large inglenook fireplace with cream log burning stove and a built-in dresser ideal for housing an entertainment system or for use as a more formal dining storage cabinet.

    The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes to one wall and is also double aspect. There are a further three bedrooms, shower room and bathroom. The cottage is presented to the very highest standard with double glazed windows and seagrass carpets.

    Outside, the property is approached through a gated entrance which opens onto a gravelled parking space. The attractive, landscaped gardens are partly laid to lawn with mature borders, lavender beds, box hedging, climbing roses and an elevated terrace ideal for summer entertaining.

    Services: Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. Oil-fired central heating.
