About this property

  • This lovely original farmworkers cottage was built by the current owner's great grandfather and we understand that this was around 1910. It has been in the same family ever since and so this is the first time coming to the market and has been carefully and sympathetically renovated in recent years including a fabulous new kitchen and bathroom in 2019. The house offers lovely space and features high ceilings, original fireplaces and herringbone wooden flooring to the hallway and sitting room. There is potential to extend subject to usual consents.

    The ground floor features a cosy sitting room with a lovely open fireplace and part panelled walls and affords views over the pretty rear garden. The striking kitchen/breakfast room has been comprehensively refitted with an excellent range of wall and floor units with work tops above and a deep ceramic sink and drainer. There is a built-in oven with electric hob and extractor above. The breakfast area overlooks the well-stocked cottage garden and there is a door out to the front garden. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a utility/cloakroom.

    The first floor boasts two generous bedrooms, both with period fireplaces and built-in cupboards and views. The contemporary bathroom is a great size, tiled and well-equipped with an heritage-style suite comprising bath with a rain head shower over and also mixer taps with shower attachment, WC, basin and airing cupboard. Access to the loft is via a loft ladder.

    Outside
    The front garden has been planted to create a great vegetable and flower garden with a path down to the front gate. There is a large shed which houses the boiler.

    To the rear is a great Yorkstone terrace which is a lovely spot to sit and relax and enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks and enjoy the fine views across the countryside. This leads to the lawn and attractive stocked borders. There is also a garden shed. A path meanders to the top of the garden which is gated and fenced with original wrought iron railings and there is parking to the rear for at least three cars.

    NB: potential to create a garden studio room as the neighbours have done.

    The vehicular access to the rear is owned by number 3 and number 2 has a right of access.

    NB: septic tank drainage and no mains gas. Night storage heating via radiators.

What a great location to enjoy the countryside yet minutes from Chorleywood village centre or Sarratt Green. Certainly the good life.
