About this property

  • Dating back the the C17th, Norah's Cottage is Grade II listed and steeped in character including beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace with wood burner and a vaulted ceiling in what was previously the barn. The property was totally refurbished some seven years ago, including re thatching, re wiring, re plumbing with new bathrooms and underfloor heating installed.

    The kitchen/breakfast room has freestanding units, in keeping with the character of the cottage, and a Mercury range cooker. The sitting and dining rooms are a delight and atmospheric with their myriad beams and big fireplace in the sitting room. What was a barn has been creatively converted into a studio space, presently used as a home office, but lends itself to multiple uses including a large dining room for special occasions or a large fourth bedroom, as there is an en suite shower room adjoining this room. Also downstairs is a further bathroom and a large utility/storage room.

    The main staircase leads up to two double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. There are substantial fitted wardrobes in main bedroom as well as under eaves storage and access to attic storage. The second staircase opens to the third bedroom, currently used as a den/TV room, with an interconnecting door to bedroom two.

    The property has electric gates opening to a parking area for two cars. The front and rear gardens have been landscaped with much of the lawn laid to wild flower turf. There is a substantial garden shed and an electric charging point.
