Full description

Offered to the market with a guide price of £650,000 - £675,000. Mayhew Estates are delighted to offer for sale this beautifully presented detached character home set in the very heart of the picturesque village of Cowden. Constructed in approximately 1880, this converted chapel enjoys manageable cottage gardens to the front, sides and rear. The property has been the subject of much improvement, modernization, and extension from the current owner who has lovingly installed both character and modern practical features into this striking individual home. The property is deceptively spacious and therefore an internal viewing is highly recommended in order to appreciate not only the quality of finish but the superb practical layout and generous room sizes. Accommodation comprises a fabulous light and airy kitchen/dining room which being triple aspect allows plenty of natural light. There are French doors leading onto the side terrace/courtyard garden. This impressive room is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke handmade Tudor oak wall and base units with granite and oak work surfaces over cupboards and drawers. There is a butler style sink with mixer tap and for practicality there is an integral dishwasher, washing machine, two fridges and a freezer. The center piece of this fabulous space is a deep red four oven Aga giving a real homely feel to this spacious room. There is a useful under stairs storage cupboard and a floor to ceiling coat cupboard. The flooring is part oak boarding and part oak quarry tiled. There are oak display shelves and inset down lighters. There is a door leading to the adjoining lounge. This generous light and airy room benefits from being triple aspect and with French doors to the front court yard garden and further door to the rear terrace. This generous family room benefits further from an impressive range of built in units in a dresser style with recessed mirror and range of cupboards. There is a functional feature fireplace. Also on the ground floor there is a separate study or perhaps family room which benefits from being dual aspect and a built in dresser with oak worktop and oak boarded flooring. There is also a built in storage cupboard. The downstairs shower room enjoys natural light and ventilation from a window at the rear and there is a glazed and tiled shower cubicle, pedestal hand wash basin, low level wc, down lighters and quarry tiled floor. From the kitchen/diner there is a half turned staircase rising to the first floor. The first floor landing is a good sized space and features access to the loft space, built in airing cupboard and doors to bedrooms. The master bedroom is of a generous size and has a front aspect. There is an extensive range of built in wardrobes, including a built in dressing table with recessed mirrored wall. The en-suite bathroom has a window to the rear and features a free standing roll top bath. There is a pedestal hand wash basin, with recessed mirror and lights over and a low level wc. There are further built in wardrobes and shelving units. Bedrooms two and three are both double bedrooms and feature built in wardrobes. There is a family bathroom with natural light and modern white suite with panel enclosed bath, low level wc and hand wash basin.


The pretty courtyard gardens almost surround the property. These pretty terraces are bordered with mature plants with well stocked shrubs and a magnolia tree. There is a second paved terrace to the rear of the property with oak framed arbore with a mature grapevine. To the front of the property there is off street parking for two cars, a real benefit being in the heart of Cowden.
