About this property

  • Occupying an idyllic semi-rural position, St John's Cottage is a charming half tile hung, stone cottage with beautiful mature gardens. The cottage originally dates from 1745 with well planned accommodation presented over three floors and the current owners have meticulously looked after during their ownership including the addition of a new kitchen.

    The kitchen / dining room is well appointed with a useful separate utility / boot room. The two adjoining reception rooms are spacious and light with large windows, garden views, a bespoke bookshelf and a stunning open fireplace.
    Upstairs is a wonderful principal bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en suite, two further bedrooms can be found across the hall and the family bathroom. On the second floor are two additional bedrooms.

    Outside, the rear garden is private and tranquil with a large area of lawn, magnificent rhododendrons, and a number of mature shrubs. There is a lovely terrace which wraps around the house providing a perfect space to entertain and enjoy the garden in the summer months.

    The detached double garage / outbuilding has the benefit of a large studio room above, a shower room and a useful utility room.

    The cottage is accessed via wooden electric gates leading to a gravel driveway with parking for multiple vehicles in front of the garage.
