    About this property

    • Dating from 1846, this attractive former farmhouse enjoys an idyllic semi-rural setting, set almost centrally within a generous 0.3 acre plot. In recent years the current owner has commissioned an extensive yet sympathetic program of renovation and extension at great expense using high quality materials, fixtures and fittings. The works have including re-roofing, re-rendering, replacement ‘Residence 9' windows throughout and adding a first floor above the garage to create an incredible annexe/games room.

      Pear Tree Cottage is screened by mature conifer hedging providing a high degree of privacy, set behind a sweeping gravel driveway providing extensive parking and leading to the detached double garage/annexe with electric door. The property extends to 2,6,24 sq ft in total, offering versatile and well-presented accommodation.

      Entered via an enclosed porch with composite door, the spacious hallway provides a welcoming first impression. To the right of the hall is a generous 19'1 dual aspect living room with oak flooring, living flame gas fire with stone surround and French doors onto the gardens. To the left of the hall the beautifully appointed open plan dining kitchen with part vaulted ceiling features skylight windows and slate flooring. The shaker style kitchen is arranged around a central island with granite work surfaces, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher and Neff microwave whilst there is space for an American style fridge/freezer and gas range cooker. Off the kitchen a useful boot room with stable door to outside in turn leads to the fitted utility room and WC. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a second formal reception room currently used as a family room.

      To the first floor the landing leads to four well-proportioned double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom with separate shower, freestanding bath and travertine tiling. The principal bedroom features stairs leading to a second floor en suite shower room. Worthy of note is the 22'2” x 18'6” annex room above the garage with separate access and stairs. This incredibly versatile space is perfect as a games room, home working space or to be used an ancillary accommodation as there is service provision for a kitchenette and bathroom.

      Externally, the fully enclosed and particularly generous lawned gardens envelop the property, defined by established hedging, mature trees and hedging. A York stone patio area provides the perfect space for entertaining.
