    About this property

    • The property is accessed via a large gravel driveway with electric gates leading through to both properties and the attractive gardens. The property has been extended and improved over the years yet retains many character features such as exposed timbers, beams and brickwork. The cottage is entered via a covered porch leading into the sitting room with brick Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove with oak mantle. The kitchen/dining room benefits from granite work surfaces, stone flooring and built in appliances including a Baumatic gas cooker and hob. There is a family room/office with solid wood floors and French doors opening out to the gardens. There is also a small vestibule with a fridge and cloakroom.

      The first floor can be accessed by either of the two staircases. The master bedroom has a basin and shares a Jack and Jill shower room with the third bedroom. There is a separate guest bedroom and en-suite with roll top bath.

      The Forge:
      This separate building is believed to date back to the 18th Century and is of special historic interest and still features the original horse tethering rings on the rear wall. Currently used for entertaining and as a games room, the property benefits from a small kitchen and shower room with a mezzanine level accessed via a ladder.

      Accessed onto a gravel driveway and electric gates give private access to both properties. There is a garage and a studio/storage room. The gardens have been cleverly planted with a mixture of attractive stone, decking and gravel paths with grassed areas and a paved terrace. The planting provides year round colour with well-tended trees, shrubs and bushes.
