Charming character cottage in a delightful location.
Apple Tree Cottage is a charming, character cottage in a delightful location. The hamlet of Berghers Hill is a designated conservation area, surrounded by countryside providing numerous walks including nearby Farm Wood. The property is believed to date back to about 1630 with later additions, and offers a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary features including exposed beams, tiled flooring and fireplaces.
The dining room lies to the front of the cottage and features a beautiful inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. Tiled flooring extends into the adjacent sitting room, overlooking the garden and with French doors opening on to the outside terrace. Just off the sitting room is an office, with built in storage. A morning room, currently used as a study, overlooks the frontage and would be ideal as a family/tv room. An inner hallway leads to a staircase rising to the first floor, with useful under stairs storage, and through to the kitchen, which is well appointed with an excellent range of fitted units and a breakfast bar area. Appliances include a double oven, induction hob, dishwasher and an American style fridge/freezer. To the rear of the kitchen is a utility area with further storage and space for appliances. A ceiling lantern floods the room with natural light and a stable door gives access to the garden.
On the first floor are two beautifully presented and charming bedrooms, both with a good range of fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom enjoys a well-appointed en suite shower room while a family bathroom serves the adjacent bedroom.
To the front of the cottage is a generous gravelled driveway providing off street parking with a corner flower bed and climbing roses framing the front door. The rear garden is delightful with an area of lawn and a terrace giving the perfect spot for outside dining and entertaining. Painted fencing and mature trees provide screening and a good deal of privacy and shrub and flower borders give colour and interest. An outbuilding attached to the property gives useful outside storage, and a garden gate gives access to the side.
