Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Holly Cottage was built in 2000 and finished to a very high standard and has won craftsmanship awards for the quality of the build and finish. The immaculately presented accommodation includes a reception hall with a galleried landing above, lounge with an inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove, dining room opening to a bespoke fitted kitchen, utility room, a large cloakroom with space for a shower and an adjacent bedroom which is currently used as a large study with fitted office furniture. On the first floor are three double bedrooms with an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and a family bathroom with a large separate shower cubicle. In addition, the property has gas fired under floor heating throughout with individual electronic thermostats to regulate the heating in eight separate zones in the property, a burglar alarm system and solid mahogany double glazed windows. The adjoining double garage is of cavity brick construction with sufficient foundations to add a floor above to provide additional bedroom accommodation (subject to planning). The plot extends to around one third of an acre (subject to measured survey) with plenty of parking on a block driveway and the established well maintained gardens are an important feature of the property. There is also an integrated sound system with ceiling speakers in the lounge, dining room, master bedroom and en-suite.

Only by inspection can the quality and feel of this very special property be fully appreciated and therefore viewing is highly recommended.
