    About this property

    • Built in the 1930s, Naight Cottage is an extremely stylish property offering generous and contemporary accommodation within a distinctive Arts and Crafts influenced exterior. The current owners have extended and invested considerably in the property creating a sociable and well-presented property. The heart of the house is the large and light open plan family/dining room which opens to the well-fitted kitchen providing a wonderful space for the family to congregate and also for entertaining. There is an open fireplace with wood burning stove whilst bi-fold doors open out onto the terrace to allow the outside in. The kitchen opens to a useful utility with bespoke pantry cupboard and door to the rear garden. At the front of the property and accessed from the entrance hall is a very comfortable sitting room, with original bay window and fireplace with wood burning stove and a cosy snug, with restored original parquet floor and fireplace also with wood burning stove. Bi-fold doors from the snug open out onto the terrace in the front garden bringing in light and air and creating a wonderful uninterrupted visual flow from the front to the back garden. Bedroom five is situated on the ground floor adjacent to a shower room and is currently used as a study. With super fast broadband, CAT6 cabling and TV points in most rooms, it has proved to be an ideal location for remote working.

      The property sits centrally in its generous plot with mature landscaped gardens and terraces to the front and rear which take full advantage of the sun at any time of the day. To the rear steps lead up from the terrace to a lawned area with a pathway leading to the summerhouse/office. There is also a very useful garden shed.
