A charming Grade II listed period cottage in a delightful rural situation.
Believed to be late medieval and extended in the 20th century, Little Timbers is Grade II listed, constructed of a timber frame with partly plastered, weather-boarded and shingled elevations. There are many period features including oak floors, period oak latch doors, leaded light windows and exposed beams.
The main entrance is via a large, attractive porch with a convenient bench and boot storage. The front door opens into a hallway with a galleried landing and second floor skylight. To one side of the entrance hallway is a dining room, traditional bathroom and a spacious family kitchen/breakfast room with a walk-in pantry, range cooker and double butler sink. Double doors lead out onto the grounds and there is a separate utility room. To the other side of the hallway is a secondary hall with an under-stairs cupboard and room for a small study area. At the end of the hallway is an elegant sitting room with beamed ceilings and walls, the main feature being the inglenook fireplace, and an adjacent living room with beams, brick fireplace and a multi-fuel burning stove.
The first floor galleried landing is flooded with natural light and opens on to the principal suite with a beamed, vaulted ceiling, off which is an en suite bathroom. This bedroom offers delightful views from the triple-aspect windows and Juliet balcony over the grounds and surrounding farmland. There are three further bedrooms along with a spacious family shower room.
Little Timbers is approached via a five-bar gate over a shingle driveway to an oak-framed two-bay cart lodge and with parking for numerous vehicles. The beautiful grounds surround the house with well manicured lawns, sunny seating areas and formal flower beds with relaxed planting areas along with a large, natural pond. Through an archway is a kitchen garden with fruit trees, fruit bushes and protected vegetable beds, adjacent to which is a large shed, greenhouse and hen house.
All in around 1.5 acres.
