Delightful Grade II Listed detached thatched cottage with mature private gardens and views to the river Ouse.
This delightful period cottage is situated in a Conservation Area and provides charming accommodation over two floors.
Of rendered elevations beneath a straw thatched roof, the property has been owned by the same family for 50 years so offers a buyer a rare opportunity to purchase an unspoilt cottage near the river.
Listed Grade II as being of historic and architectural interest, there are a variety of period features including exposed timbers, an Inglenook fireplace, brick and pamment flooring and ledged and braced doors. The three box bay windows at ground floor level are understood to have been added by the Fraser family previous artist owners who wanted to enjoy the river views from the house.
The front door leads to a lobby to the right of which is a sitting room with a solid fuel stove fitted into the Inglenook fireplace and a part glazed door to the garden and to the left is the dining room with a round backed fireplace and stove, a cupboard to one side next to the first of two staircases to the first floor. The kitchen is beyond the sitting room, with a double drainer sink, a quarry tiled floor and some storage, there is a side door to the garden. At the far end of the cottage is a spacious bathroom beside the rear hall and second stairs to the first floor.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor all with sloping ceilings and dormer windows to the front aspect.
Brick steps lead to the front door and there is a side path giving access to the kitchen door and rear garden. This is delightfully secluded and is mainly laid to lawn with an old Oak tree, a Boat shed/store/workshop building, mature hedging and a variety of flower and shrub beds.

This is such a delightful cottage in a peaceful spot, I was really taken with its honest, picturesque charm and was impressed with the wonderful views to the river from the bay windows which, we gather, were added by a previous family of artists.James Barnett
