About this property

  • Pool Cottage is a charming Grade II listed cottage, offering a fabulous lifestyle, particularly for those looking for equestrian facilities and open space. The house has plenty of character with exposed beams and offers flexible living space.

    The open plan, modern living kitchen offers in plenty of light with double oak doors leading outside. There is a central island with granite worktop which continues throughout the kitchen. Just off the kitchen is a reception room with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. There are a further two reception rooms, one with access outside via an oak framed porch.

    On the first floor, is the master bedroom with a bespoke gable end window feature, with double doors and Juliette balcony overlooking the grounds to the rear. There is an en suite shower room and wardrobes.

    There are a further three bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a family bathroom.

    A private driveway leads towards the house and through the grounds of Pool Cottage. The pool is situated on the left hand side with lawn and high hedges denoting the boundary.

    To the right is a spur off towards the recently added wooden building which has more recently been used as an office.

    There is ample parking to the side of the house with a lawn area above. The ménage is situated to the right, nestled into the grounds and slightly elevated.

    The American barn stabling, and further outbuildings may be found on the left hand side.

    There is a two bedroom lodge, which had previous planning, personal to a former owner and it must therefore be assumed that the planning is no longer current.

    At present, part of the grazing land has been dug out in preparation for a shed which has not been built out.
