About this property

  • This delightful period cottage in Church Lane sits within a Conservation Area and provides charming accommodation over two floors. Of brick and flint elevations beneath a pan tiled roof, there are a variety of period features including exposed timbers and brickwork, fireplaces and charming windows, some with gothic arch shaped glazing bars.

    The front door is not used as present so access is via side gates to the rear. Here a stable door leads directly to the kitchen – re-fitted by the vendors with bespoke Oak floor and wall units comprising various sized cupboards and drawers, a butler sink with mixer taps, a small breakfast bar, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and space for an Aga. There is access from here to the front of the house – a double aspect sitting room with brick fireplace and multi-fuel burner, exposed timbers and brick flooring, this has an understairs cupboard and in turn leads to the dining room with a fire grate, brick hearth and exposed wooden floorboards.

    In addition, on the ground floor beside the kitchen is a bathroom fitted with a P-shaped bath with hand held shower fitting and drench shower, shower screen, tiling above the bath, vanity basin with cupboards below, W.C., brick flooring and exposed brick chimney breast.

    The door to the staircase from the kitchen leads to the first floor, both bedrooms have windows to the front aspect, to the left is the main bedroom with fitted wardrobes and access to the en suite shower room and to the left is the second bedroom – currently used as a study with a fitted cupboard and exposed timbers along one wall.

    The mature gardens are secluded with a pond and stream-like water feature with pump. To one side is an outhouse now used as a laundry room with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer a quarry tiled floor and Butler sink. Beyond is a gated drive and log store area and to the rear of the garden is a former summer house and area with two sheds.

I was really taken with the delightful secluded garden and unexpected parking area when I first visited this charming period cottage. Originally a two up, two down, there is now a re-fitted oak kitchen with stable door to the garden and an adjoining ground floor bathroom along the rear with a separate store/laundry room.
