Unique and charming Grade II listed single storey dwelling in a private road.
A truly individual detached single storey cottage, built in an ornate style in 1890, originally as two cottages to serve Copse Farm. The property is situated within the Brookshill Drive conservation area and enjoys a semi rural atmosphere in keeping with the former agricultural nature of many of the surrounding buildings. The two cottages have now been integrated into a distinctive single home with three bedrooms and two reception rooms.
The entrance door is located at the side of the property in the middle of the cottage. The reception hall has windows to side, flagstone flooring and leads through to a sizable, dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with oak faced units and has a dark granite work surface to complement the dark slate floor tiles. There is a butler sink and range cooker and in keeping with most other rooms in the property a raised vaulted ceiling. The sitting room is again dual aspect with shuttered windows to side and front aspect and an additional door to the front. There is a cast iron feature fireplace, oak flooring and column radiators. The dining room has a shuttered bay window to front, stone tiled flooring and column radiator. Also from the reception hallway is the family bathroom with roll topped bath, w.c. with high level cistern and in contrast, modern vanitory unit with dual white porcelain wash hand basins.
The bedrooms are reached by an inner hallway with natural light from window to side and all bedrooms have ledged and braced doors. The master bedroom has oak flooring, column radiator, two shuttered windows to side and fitted wardrobes. The en suite shower room has a large shower cubicle, white suite and fully tiled walls and flooring. Bedroom two has window to side, column radiator and oak flooring. Bedroom three has two shuttered windows, column radiator, oak flooring and fitted wardrobes.
The cottage has a small front garden with hedging and a driveway to the side which leads to a larger gravelled parking area. To the end of this is a single detached garage with double doors.
To the rear of the property there is a detached building used as a gym but with scope for a variety of uses. It has windows overlooking the front and side. Behind this is an expanse of lawn given privacy by high hedging and containing at the end a summer house.
