Attractive stone Georgian family house enjoying a stunning and substantial riverside frontage with fishing rights.
Dove Cottage comprises a fine vernacular Georgian stone built house in approx. 2.77 acres of wonderful grounds and gardens opened under the National Garden Scheme for over 30 years and enjoying substantial riverside frontage with fishing rights.
An original smaller house stood on the site in the early 18th Century and was added to in Georgian times to create the substantial stone built imposing, but most attractive country house that now enjoys the setting of Dove Cottage. It is understood to have been the manager's house for the period mill which sits nearby and has been in the same family ownership now for many years. The house enjoys delightful well-proportioned family accommodation with a very attractive central hallway and two spacious main reception rooms enjoying attractive aspects over the gardens to the countryside beyond. There is a good sized dining room and a fitted breakfast kitchen with a large utility/boot room set within the earlier part of the house.
To the first floor is a split landing with three good bedrooms, one enjoying a generous en suite shower room and WC and another a smaller en suite shower room with hand basin. In addition off the main landing is a generous study/bedroom 4. A rear landing area leads to a further bedroom and a box room/storeroom which could be further adapted to a bedroom if required and a modern family bathroom and WC.
The setting of Dove Cottage is quite delightful with a walled frontage and opening to a driveway and courtyard area. There are mature formal lawns and gardens and grounds with extremely well stocked borders and a ha-ha leading down onto the paddock area and the river frontages beyond. There are productive vegetable areas and a useful and substantial log store and greenhouse. There are many fine herbaceous plants and shrubs within the garden areas and the paddock benefits from a separate field gate access.
