    About this property

    • 7 The Doocot is a delightful stone cottage on the corner of a courtyard development built in 1994. The house has a south facing garden, a garage off the shared courtyard behind and a lovely outlook over open countryside in front.

      Special features of the house include two arched cart house windows off the dining hall on the ground floor and a south facing kitchen with a door into the garden.

      The house is approached by a path through the courtyard to the north. The front door gives access to the porch which has a glazed door into the house. There is a coat cupboard beside.

      The L-shaped open plan living room is split level with a dining hall on the upper level and a step and balustrade dividing off the sitting room below. This has south-facing French windows opening into the garden and a gas, coal effect fire with a stone surround.

      The kitchen also has a door into the garden. It has fitted floor and wall cupboards with tiled splashbacks, an electric cooker, double sink and built in cupboard.

      Upstairs is a landing with store and cupboard off. There are three bedrooms, all of which are south-facing. The main shower room is fully tiled. There is a second shower room off the principal bedroom which also has built in wardrobes.

      In front of the house is a south facing garden with a stone wall around. There is a magnificent ash tree in the corner. The garden has a paved terrace, lawn, flower and rose beds and a stone sundial.

      To the north of the house alongside the path to the front door is a further lawn with shrubs around.

      Garage and Parking:
      7 The Doocot owns the far garage in the block of two behind. There is also guest parking opposite with a dedicated space.

    I especially like how the surrounding gardens both at the front and back of the house can be enjoyed from all of the downstairs areas, enhanced by the dining room cart house windows.
