About this property

  • Springwell Cottage is an attractive semidetached, Arts and Crafts style cottage dating from the Edwardian era. It has generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings and has a feeling of light and space throughout. Of particular note is the large kitchen/breakfast room which was enlarged from the original, by the current owners, is very spacious and has a conservatory style feel about it with windows and French doors running the entire length of two walls letting in large amounts of natural light and giving views of, and access to, the large terrace. There are plentiful kitchen units and cupboards, a range cooker, Calor gas hob, integrated dishwasher, a central island, bench seating and an informal dining area. The drawing room is also a spacious and impressive room, again having French doors opening out onto the terrace and garden beyond. Next to the kitchen is a useful ground floor shower room with w.c. with a utility room

    In addition there is a large reception hall, and a good sized dual aspect dining room. To the
    first floor the master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with separate shower, fitted wardrobe and views over the rear garden. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.


    The property is set back from the road at the end of a gravel driveway. There is extensive parking area to the front, and side of the house, a carport. To the rear there is a delightful
    garden with a large paved terrace area ideal for outdoor entertaining with steps leading
    up to gently rolling lawns, which are shaded and bordered by mature trees and established
    shrubs providing an excellent amount of privacy. A large summer house with a verandah sits at one side of the garden and is ideal for use as a home studio, games room or guest accommodation, while the gardens enjoy magnificent views across the surrounding farmland and on a clear day, Englefield House can be seen in the distance.

This charming house is a real surprise with its lovely light kitchen and living area, but for me the views are the main attraction!
