Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning secluded cottage, built circa 1908, situated within extensive gardens with beautiful grounds and a pretty stream.

On entering the property you will instantly be impressed by the bright entrance hall and parquet flooring which extends through to the main reception room, giving superb views over the surrounding gardens and benefits from dual-aspect windows and a log-burning stove.

The conservatory is accessed via both the hallway and the lounge via full-length glass double doors and, again, boasts super views of the surrounding gardens.

The kitchen and dining areas offer a wonderful space for social dining as the dining area is partially opened to the kitchen area which has been fitted with a range of attractive wooden units with a contrasting travertine tiled floor and storage area – furthermore, there is also a lovely Belfast sink, miele appliances and an oil-fired Rayburn which complements the farmhouse-style kitchen area nicely. There is a useful utility room as well as walk-in pantry, giving this area of the home fantastic storage space. In addition to this, there is the benefit of a ground floor cloakroom, and an additional room which is accessed externally and currently serves as a private office.

The first floor houses three bedrooms, all of which are doubles, with bedroom 1 benefiting from a dressing room with one walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower

room. There is also a well fitted family bathroom, fully equipped with both separate shower cubicle and bath.

Externally, there is ample parking for numerous vehicles, with a garage and there is a driveway which has gated access from the lane.

The surrounding gardens have been developed to offer a wealth of shrubs and trees, a vegetable patch secluded from the property, a summerhouse with power and light as well as a wooden shed. The rear of the conservatory has a beautiful patio area which extends around to the kitchen, giving a superb additional dining area for the summer months, and which overlooks the secluded garden.

What the Owner says:


As soon as we walked through the front door, we
just knew this was the right house for us.

We just love the peaceful location and especially our
beautiful gardens – they are idyllic. We are fortunate
to have several seating areas in the garden which not
only allow us to follow the sun around all day, but
also enable us to entertain into the evening in those
glorious summer months.

There are local country walks on our doorstep and
access to local amenities is only a short drive away.
