Description:
Tucked away at the top of a long private drive, shared with one other property, Kiln Cottage enjoys a lovely setting with an outlook over gardens and fields, with superb equestrian facilities conveniently positioned within easy reach.

With origins dating back to the brick-making industry, much of the inherent character of the cottage is still evident, including aged oak ceiling beams and wood panel doors with wrought-iron drop latches.

The well presented, light and spacious reception space comprises a generously proportioned entrance hall with Amtico flooring, a drawing room with a carved stone fireplace, a sitting room with a lovely wide brick fireplace with an oak bressumer beam over, inset with a wood burning stove, a roundel dining room and a conservatory opening out to the garden.

An attractive country-style family kitchen/breakfast room lies in the heart of the house, fitted with oak wall and base units, granite surfaces, twin Butler sinks and a white electric 3-oven Aga. The adjoining utility room is fitted to match, and a practical boot room on the other side is an essential for country living.

The impressive master bedroom on the first floor, with its high-beamed and vaulted ceiling, has a view to the South over the gardens and fields beyond and an adjoining en suite bathroom, cleverly incorporated into the roundel.

3 further bedrooms, together with a 5th, currently fitted as a well appointed dressing room with Smallbone wardrobes and drawers, and 2 well appointed bathrooms complete the accommodation.

Outside:
Kiln Cottage is surrounded by delightful enclosed mature gardens of just over 0.50 acres. Laid mainly to lawn with a pond, terrace and colourful plantings, including magnificent rhododendrons to the boundary, this is a lovely area for outdoor entertaining, with a luxury "Arctic Cabin" providing an unusual focal point.

A well tended and productive kitchen garden with raised beds lies to the back, stocked with fan trained top fruit, including cherry, pear, apple and plum and with a useful tool shed.

The current owner has created a comprehensive range of equestrian facilities, accessed by a spur off the main drive way and easily reached from the house via a gate at the end of the garden. Designed for ease of use, the facilities would also facilitate alternative agricultural uses, if required. Main points of note include:

- several individual post and railed turn out paddocks, including stallion paddocks; mains supplied electric tape along the top rails and some with mains water troughs;
- competition standard 60 x 20m Charles Britton menage with gel track surface, mirrors and wired with a sound system that is available by separate negotiation;
- 20 x 20m lunge arena with rubber surface;
- American barn with 10 Lodden boxes all with rubber flooring, fully fitted solarium with Infra Red and UV lighting;
- hay barn and larger field currently laid for hay.

Agents Note:
The driveway from the road serves two properties: Kiln Cottage and The Lane House, both owned by our client and The Lane House is available by separate negotiation. The title for The Lane House currently includes the drive, with a right of access granted to Kiln Cottage, but this is negotiable.
