Yew Tree Cottage is an enchanting, part timbered, listed, period cottage principally dating from the 17th century. The pretty black and white façade sits back from the no through road and houses a wealth of period features including both wall and ceiling beams with the carpenter's marks, original doors, quarry tiled floors and inglenook fireplaces. The versatile accommodation is laid out over three floors and has been well maintained by the current owners who have updated the fittings and fixtures during their time at the property.
Access to the property is via an impressive, solid timber front door which opens into a hallway that leads either side into the drawing room to one side and the study/sitting room to the other. The double aspect, drawing room is within the older part of the property and benefits from an open brick fireplace and tiled hearth. It links through to the dining room which also has many period features.
The breakfast kitchen has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and is fitted with a range of cream wall units and granite worktops. A breakfast bar and integrated appliances, including a Rangemaster stove and dishwasher, have been incorporated within the design.
Leading off the kitchen is a useful pantry and a utility room with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a cloakroom just off.
At the rear of the property is a delightful family room with doors to an outside entertaining area. A wood burning stove sits within a brick inglenook fireplace with a quarry tile hearth and pretty countryside views through the windows. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a useful orangery which links the dining room and the sitting room and gives access to the rear of the property.
On the first floor is the master bedroom with character beams and a range of timber fronted wardrobes and dressing table which complement the style of the room. There are two further bedrooms on this level which share a well-appointed family bathroom which include a claw foot roll top bath and his and her vanity wash hand basins with cupboards beneath.
The second floor has a further bedroom and a shower room.
Yew Tree Cottage is approached via a cobbled driveway which provides ample off road parking and leads to a double garage with a roller shutter door. The views to the rear overlook rolling countryside towards the Sandon Estate. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and flower beds together with dining areas for outside entertaining.
