Spring Cottage is a wonderful five bedroom family home, perfectly designed for modern family life and enjoying a picturesque village location. The property has been the subject of a scheme of renovations and extension and now offers a wealth of spacious family accommodation. The central hub of the cottage is the large, open plan kitchen, dining and family room, the perfect space for relaxing as a family or for entertaining guests.The well-appointed kitchen has an oil fired twin oven AGA with an additional electric companion AGA providing the perfect combination for even the most demanding of home chefs. Coupled with the large slate-topped island unit, not only is this a very attractive kitchen but exceedingly well thought out creating both a functional and social family space.There are two more reception rooms on the ground floor, the smaller drawing room or family snug at the rear and a much larger sitting room to the front. The utility room is off the central hallway while a large guest cloak room is off the rear hallway. Stairs lead from the rear hallway to the converted attic space over the garage perfect for use as a games room or home office.On the first floor there are five double bedrooms arranged around a spacious central landing. Three of the bedrooms benefit from en-suite shower rooms, all well-appointed and tastefully decorated. The remaining two bedrooms are served by a smartly finished principal bathroom.Externally, the cottage is set well back from the road by a landscaped garden with attractive central sandstone rockery and well stocked borders. The driveway has ample parking for numerous vehicles, the front aspect of the property being bounded by coniferous hedging providing a good deal of privacy. There is a double garage with electrically operated roller door and inspection pit.The rear garden is equally secluded, with the kitchen opening out onto a large paved entertaining area adjacent to the property. Steps rise from this to a large lawn, again bounded by hedging with plenty of space for children to play outside.
