    About this property

    • Chantry Cottage is likely to date back to the 18th century and is the quintessential thatched period village property, set within a particularly spacious, mature plot. With stone elevations under a thatched roof this charming listed Grade II house retains many original features including an inglenook fireplace, flagstone floors, ham stone mullions with leaded lights, exposed beams and window seats but also offers contemporary spaces such as the recently renovated kitchen. Also on the ground floor is a good size sitting room with fireplace and splendid exposed timber ceiling, a dining room off the kitchen, a second reception room, hall, cloakroom and utility room. On the first floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom.

      Adjacent to the house is a splendid two storey ancillary building, built of stone under a slate roof, providing guest accommodation on the ground floor and space for a home office or hobby room at first floor level. The building is self-contained with a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen and independent access to the lane and parking.

      The gardens at Chantry Cottage will undoubtedly be a draw. The gardens lie principally to the side and rear of the property and face south west. Immediately to the rear of the cottage a stone terrace, beyond which is a well-stocked border and beyond that a level area of lawn and a lovely old stone wall. A gap in the same stone wall to the north opens to a larger area of lawn, flanked by a further attractive stone wall. The rear of the plot is enclosed by a mature hedge which runs along to a further area of garden providing a shed and level area for growing vegetables.
