Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Since the 1890's Whitesheet Cottage has sat, nestled at the base of Whitesheet Hill, a detached stone cottage with lovely views across adjoining open farmland and with direct access to some of the most wonderful walking, cycling and riding country in the area.

Extended and re-modelled over the years, the cottage evolved into a substantial country home, with extremely generous and well planned accommodation, and now forms a perfect family house.

Beautifully presented throughout, the house is filled with natural light, flooding in through banks of windows that also frame the wonderfully far reaching country views that the property enjoys.

The rooms are particularly well proportioned and plentiful, with five bedrooms, four of them double and three superb reception rooms, there is more than enough space for a growing family, guests and large scale entertaining.

A curved gravelled drive, flanked by lawns, leads to the entrance with the Hallway having an easily maintained tiled floor, which continues into the Cloakroom and inner hall which has useful coats cupboard.

The most recent addition, to the side of the cottage, has created a fantastically versatile reception room which features French windows to the garden, original exposed stone wall and a quirky mezzanine floor. An ideal space for young children, independent teenagers and many other uses, including a great music or hobbies room, with the thick stone walls providing excellent sound proofing.

The Sitting Room is extremely spacious, a large square room, making it easy to furnish and with French windows to the terrace and a wide open fireplace, a lovely place to be in both summer and winter.

The separate Dining Room is of equally good size, and is fitted with an excellent range of book and display shelving.

The Kitchen is a warm, inviting hub with more than enough room for a big table and chairs around which to congregate. Fitted with a good range of units arranged around a lovely red Rayburn and opening to a useful, separate Study area. There is also a Utility Room which offers further storage and appliance space.

On the first floor the Master Bedroom has built-in wardrobe cupboards and the benefit of a large en suite bathroom including a separate shower cubicle. There are three further double bedrooms, all with built-in storage, a fifth bedroom and shower room.
