Full description

In a highly convenient central, yet tucked-away village position, a superb 4-bedroomed cottage, displaying characterful and original features throughout the versatile accommodation, also benefiting from a delightful enclosed garden to the rear with various deceptively spacious outbuildings, including an impressive workshop/barn.

The Property - 'Penlee Cottage' is a particularly pretty, charming and characterful double-fronted terraced cottage, tucked-away in a particularly convenient central position within this highly regarded village, offering adaptable and deceptively spacious four-bedroomed accommodation, exceptionally well presented throughout with light and spacious rooms, wood-burner, Rayburn and the unusual attraction of various substantial outbuildings surrounding an enclosed rear garden.

Unusually for a property of this type, the cottage benefits from various stores and outbuildings including a large workshop barn/former wash house, which would in our opinion, be of particular appeal to tradesmen, those wishing to work from home, keen hobbyists or anyone looking for extensive dry storage.

The cottage itself occupies an appealing corner position within a pretty courtyard arrangement of olderstyle properties and features an attractive broad stone frontage, with adjacent off-street parking leading to the central entrance to the property. The garden is situated to the rear and is particularly well enclosed with beautifully stocked flower bed borders and is surprisingly private.

Inside, the property retains much charm and character such as timber sash windows, some exposed beamed ceilings and timber doors, yet has been sympathetically improved by the current and previous owners with the addition of various upgrades including installation of a wood-burner, oil fired Rayburn, as well as a sympathetically reappointed kitchen and various other decorative improvements.

The layout is particularly versatile and could provide up to five bedrooms depending on the occupants requirements, since the dining room (off the sitting room) could provide a further bedroom, if required. The main reception room at the front of the property provides an impressive entrance and has been opened-up from two smaller rooms. The attractive kitchen to the rear of the cottage overlooks and accesses the rear garden and benefits from a walk-in pantry adjacent. The first floor accommodation comprises a master room leading to a fourth bedroom or study (perfect for a child's bedroom or large dressing room/study), two further bedrooms and a bathroom with separate/additional WC.

The Location - Within just a few minutes' walk of Perranwell Station's highly regarded county primary school, playing field with village hall, public house, garage, general stores/sub post office, cricket club and parish church off nearby Church Road.
