Full description

The original part of Thingdon Cottage dates back to 1862 and is a classic Grade II Listed stone character property located in the Conservation Area in the older part of the village. The current owners have sympathetically extended the property, doubling the size to create a modern family home with a beautiful L-shaped open plan living/kitchen/dining room. The gardens are a particular feature of the property extending to approximately 0.92 of an acre with a range of specimen trees and a meandering brook provides an attractive focal point for the gardens. The property now offers flexible and adaptable accommodation with a potential annexe facility and accommodation comprising entrance hall, entrance lobby, dining hall, sitting room, study, magnificent kitchen/dining/family room, master bedroom suite with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, guest bedroom with en suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a house bathroom. The property further benefits from gas radiator central heating and part underfloor heating and off road parking for several vehicles. The property is offered with no onward chain and viewing of this highly individual property is thoroughly recommended.
