Church Meadow Cottage is a beautiful detached village home of immense character backing onto open land at the rear and side. Located next to the old school house, the building dates back to 1878 and was formerly the headmaster's residence. Features include beautiful gothic arched windows, stone mullioned windows, reclaimed doors and restored traditional cast iron radiators.
Steps lead up to a canopied porch opening into the reception hall with quarry tiles and a generous storage cupboard. The sitting room is charming with Amtico flooring and features a box bay window with shutters and a built in seating area giving views over the front garden. A focal point is the decorative fireplace with brick surround and a working fire. The quarry tiles from the reception hall continue into the kitchen/dining room with an array of hand painted Shaker style units and shelving, a Belfast sink, complemented by wood worktops. The range cooker has an attractive brick surround and there is space for appliances. The kitchen has been been sympathetically extended to provide a triple aspect dining area and features attractive gothic arched windows to preserve the original character. French doors open out onto the terrace and give stunning views over the garden and adjacent fields.
A wood panelled staircase leads from the kitchen up to the first floor landing. There are three bedrooms on this floor and a family bathroom. The dual aspect double bedroom to the front has fitted wardrobes, a walk in cupboard, and lovely village views. There is a single bedroom to the rear and another dual aspect double bedroom with wonderful views.
The house is set behind electric gates and is approached onto a driveway with flower and shrub borders, an area of lawn with hedging and a picket fence on the front boundary. A side gate leads to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with borders and a terrace adjacent to the house which is ideal for outside entertaining or enjoying the view. A charming brick built potting shed at the end of the garden is useful as additional garden storage. Willow fence panels border one side of the garden with post and rail fencing on the rear and other side boundary allowing superb views onto the open fields.
