Keepers Cottage is an individual property encompassing a delightful cottage, annexe and a number of substantial outbuildings, including stables and kennels. The land totals 72 acres and comprises gardens, paddocks and natural woodland.
The Cottage, formerly a gamekeeper's cottage within the Earl Howe estate, has been extended and improved to create a deceptively spacious family home of immense charm and character, with a contemporary finish to the kitchen and bathrooms. A particular feature is the large well fitted kitchen with granite worktops and 'Lancanche' range cooker. The kitchen is open plan to the dining area and lounge, offering a wonderfully spacious area for modern day family living. There is also a pretty sitting room in the original part of the cottage. There are four bedrooms in total, two on the ground floor with a family bathroom. The property has two staircases one leading to the master bedroom with its stylish shower room and one leading to a teenager's bed/sitting room with sloping ceilings.
The Granary :
The Granary has been skilfully converted into a character self-contained annexe with its front veranda leading to a lounge area, open plan to the modern kitchen. There is a shower room and a staircase to the mezzanine bedroom area.
The Kennels and Outbuildings:
It is understood a previous owner ran a commercial kennels from Keepers Cottage with a comprehensive collection of kennels, associated offices and reception area (see floor plan). These could be restored for similar use or potentially converted for other uses. Close to the kennels there is a outbuilding formerly incorporating stables now utilised as workshop, gym, office and garage. There is a further stable attached to the open triple bay tractor barn plus a number of other garden and log stores.
Gardens, Paddocks and Woodland:
Keepers Cottage is approached via an unmade track of about 0.4 miles, which leads to the entrance with its electrically operated five bar gate. The drive then continues and opens onto a parking and turning courtyard area in front of the cottage, granary and kennels. To the left of the drive is an area of formal lawned garden with an idyllic pond. Beyond the gardens are three post and rail paddocks and a vegetable/soft fruit compound. Much of the 72 acres is ancient woodland known as Hale Acre Wood and a haven for natural wildlife with a carpet of bluebells in the Spring. There is access to the bordering bridleways at the entrance gate and also from King Street Lane which together with the potential stables and paddocks will appeal to the equestrian enthusiast.
