A substantial and most attractive 5 Bedroom period detached country house of great charm and character providing well appointed and adaptable family accommodation with mature gardens, an excellent range of outbuildings/workshops and land extending, in all, to approximately 1.25 acres, or thereabouts. Viewing is essential to appreciate this most welcoming property.

Description - Woodbine cottage is a most attractive 5 Bedroom period detached country house of great charm and character providing well appointed and adaptable family accommodation that the current vendors are utilising as a principal house with a substantial annexe, however, it could easily be reverted to one larger dwelling, if required. There are mature gardens, an excellent range of outbuildings and workshops and land extending, in all, to approximately 1.25 acres, or thereabouts.

The interior is full of character with numerous exposed ceiling timbers and to the ground floor there are two superbly fitted kitchens both with fitted appliances, a spacious sitting room, a dining room and a large bright family room. There is a family bathroom plus a further fitted shower room, together with two bedrooms and two separate entrance halls. At first floor level there are three bedrooms and a cloakroom.

Outside the gardens have been superbly landscaped over the years and, for those with equestrian interests, or, indeed, those that need a range of workshops and/or garages, there is a range of outbuildings that could be converted into stable blocks, or garage/workshops/storage sheds/offices, together with 0.75 of an acre, or thereabouts, of paddock area.
