About this property

  • October Cottage offers an opportunity to purchase a charming semi detached cottage, built in stone and brick with white painted elevations under a thatched and tiled roof, believed to date from around 1750. The current owners, who have been resident for around 30 years, have lovingly maintained the property including adding a conservatory, fitting a new kitchen, and double glazing.

    The accommodation is based on a sitting room with large fireplace and bespoke fitted oak cupboards, leading through to a dining room. Beyond the dining room is the study which is also used as an occasional bedroom. Also on the ground floor is the well fitted kitchen with window to the front overlooking the village green, and a ground floor bathroom. On the south side of the cottage is the conservatory, with bi fold doors and a lovely outlook over the garden. Upstairs the principal bedroom has fitted furniture and an en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has fitted furniture and leads through to an attic room which is currently used as a sewing room, and has previously been used as a study and a children's bedroom or nursery (restricted head height).

    The property sits off the no-through village lane opposite the green and pond. To the side is the detached garage with workshop area with power and light, plus additional gravelled parking . There is a home office/studio in the garden, with power and light, and double glazed windows.

    The gardens are a lovely feature being mainly laid to lawn, south west facing and level. There are mature and attractive beds and borders, and a patio area.

I absolutely love this cottage, charming, quiet, cosy, not too far from anywhere but far enough!
