This delightful cottage has been beautifully upgraded in recent years to an exceptional standard and features not only a wealth of character and style but lovely views over fields to the front and side.
Great entertaining space and incredibly flexible accommodation with two ground floor bedroom suites and two charming first floor bedrooms mean this property should have particular appeal to discerning down-sizers or those seeking a manageable country home.
The open plan living dining kitchen is part vaulted, has limestone flooring throughout and granite surfaces. This is very much the heart of the house and extends into the conservatory for wonderful views over Capesthorne parkland. With under-floor heating and air conditioning all seasons are catered for.
Bespoke base and wall cupboards house a range of Miele appliances and a large US style fridge freezer. A similarly appointed boot room/utility room lies off with a Worcester boiler and a guest WC. The galleried staircase leads up to the two first floor bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, and a house bathroom with limestone tiling and an over bath shower.
The principal suite lies on the ground floor and features oak flooring, a dual-aspect, fitted wardrobes and furniture, a walk in dressing room and a beautifully appointed en suite shower room. A guest suite is also located on the ground floor, but would equally serve as a home office, with an en suite bathroom and an outside door for visitor access if required.
The main entrance hall, approached via a deep oak framed open porch and contemporary double doors, has a stone flagged floor, vaulted ceiling and double French doors opening to the rear gardens. This area doubles up as a study area with plenty of space for a desk.
The lounge lies off the left of the hall and is a semi vaulted room with a dual-aspect, top quality oak flooring, French doors to the front west facing terrace and French doors open to the rear garden. A delightfully light room with a stone fireplace and a log burning stove. Two oak steps lead up to the living dining kitchen.
The double oak gates open to a set style heated driveway which leads down to the stable area and the double garage with electrically operated double width door and a side courtesy door giving covered access to the house.
The stable block includes a gated yard area, feed and tack room, gated access directly from the yard to the first of three paddock areas divided by post and rail fencing. Plenty of space for parking, loading and turning a horse box. Excellent for equestrians and about 4.5 acres in total.
The gardens are well landscaped to include lawns and well stocked borders, a small pond and a summer house, while to the west facing front lies a stone terrace area, ideal for al fresco entertaining and a few steps from the kitchen.
Services: Mains electricity with PV panels for feed in, LPG heating and private drainage.
