Accomodation - Situated behind large wooden gates in the rural location of Adstock stands this wonderful character cottage believed to date back to the 1600s with a very large annexe that offers a multitude of possibilities.

The main house, which has many original features, has been lovingly cared for by the current owner. It comprises entrance hall, a lovely farmhouse style kitchen with unique units originally from Castle Grant, Inverness and a gas Rayburn, utility room with a door leading out to the rear garden, cloakroom/WC, a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove, and a stunning cinema room with a charming spiral staircase to a minstrel gallery. A terrific entertaining space for watching movies or live sports on a big screen with friends and family, with doors opening out to and overlooking the central courtyard. ?
To the first floor, there are three comfortable bedrooms and a principle bathroom which are accessed from a beautiful landing area with original beams and much character.

The original stables to the property were converted around 2000 into a superb two storey property which could either be utilised as a teenage suite or granny annexe, but would also make a wonderful art studio, recording studio or treatment room. Being separate from the main house, the annexe is ideal for anybody wishing to work from home without intruding on their private life.

The annexe has a very large reception room, a further reception / gym area, a good sized work room with adjoining shower room, a very large first floor landing which leads to three bedrooms, the master having an en-suite.

House and annexe are heated by their own condenser boilers and Megaflow systems.

Outside - To the rear of the property, there is a delightful lawned garden with patio area and mature trees.

The large courtyard between the house and annexe provides ample parking and a car shelter.

Once inside its large gates, this fascinating property is secure and private.

A wonderful opportunity not to be missed in this sought after rural setting.

Ryans Cottage - The character, privacy and potential are what first attracted
current owner Paul to Ryans cottage over 20 years ago.
The whole property has since been lovingly restored
and converted into versatile accommodation with a mixture
of room sizes and no end of possibilities.

Perhaps the best feature of the property is its privacy and
security. Once you close the front gates, youre in your own
world. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The courtyard is great for the dog to safely roam.

Pauls hard pressed to choose favourite bits but most enjoys the
garden view from the kitchen, the cinema room and sitting room.
We get a lot of birds at the feeders in the garden. I love the
cinema room and its minstrel gallery, where we project films
onto a wall-sized screen. Its a fantastic space in the summer
with the French windows open out to the courtyard. The sitting
room is lovely and cosy with the wood burner on a cold evening,
enjoying music or reading a book.

Sitting in a prime location, Ryans Cottage is only a short drive to
Milton Keynes where you will find an abundance of shops and
restaurants. The village of Adstock is a small and vibrant
community with terrific gastro-pub within walking distance.
Its convenient geographically for road and rail, only
200 metres from the A413."
