Beautiful detached village home with large gardens
The Laurels is a beautifully presented detached period property dating from around 1830, listed Grade II, with a large red brick wing dating from around 1980, stylishly combining period charm and modern features, with a spacious working loft and cellar. Over the last five years the owners have undertaken extensive refurbishment throughout the property, adding new bathrooms, a large kitchen/breakfast room and wood burners. This home retains charming features which extend throughout the property with the newer wing sympathetic to the original cottage and linked via the entrance hall. The later part of the house offers particularly spacious and light rooms which look onto the terraces and garden. The master suite occupies the entire first floor of one wing, giving a great sense of privacy.
The cottage has an additional entrance which leads directly into a well planned kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room. The rooms are light and contemporary whilst keeping the period features with original sash windows. Outside there are two lovely terrace areas, the one to the rear with an attractive outlook over the gardens, with sweeping areas of lawn with plum and apple trees, to the fields beyond. There is a double garage to the rear with access off Bovone Lane, plus a driveway offering parking.
In total, just under 0.5 of an acre.

This home is really stylish - and I love the privacy of the master suite, plenty of space to get away from the family!Catherine Anderson
