Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originating from the early 16th Century Dell Cottage was built as a workers cottage, it was extended in Elizabethan times and again when the current owner purchased the property. If character and period charm are high on your list of priorities, then Dell Cottage is a must see. With exposed beams throughout and leaded windows in all of the rooms.

The cottage retains many of the character features including an impressive Inglenook fire place, beamed ceilings and floorboards. The fireplace now has a large wood burning stove, a grand feature in this Grade II listed cottage perfect for the cold winter nights.

The current owners have made every effort to create a comfortable home with all of the modern conveniences whilst not detracting from the character and charm of the building. When they bought the house 30 years ago they extended to add the Kitchen, Utility room and downstairs W/C, and the master bedroom upstairs, giving the house its third double bed room.

The house sits back sheltered from Pains Hill Road and is surrounded by its gardens which are beautifully manicured with well-established boarders and multiple seating areas to make the most of the sun and shade on offer. The garden even boasts its own natural spring, which has been built into a beautiful feature of the garden along with the centuries old apple tree.

There is plenty of storage in the house, unusual for a property of this age, taking the form of a crawl space basement accessed from the kitchen and loft space above the master bedroom. There is ample parking on the gravelled driveway and a double garage with a workshop adding to the versatility and options at the property.
