The Property
Holly Cottage enjoys a prominent position in Lower Rads End with views over open countryside to the front and pretty south facing garden to the rear. Within the last three years the cottage has undergone a thorough renovation and modernisation, to include full rewiring and plumbing. Great attention to detail went into both the design and specification including Fired Earth bathroom fittings throughout. The result is a property which enjoys a light and airy feel with the main living accommodation enjoying an open plan layout, ideally suited to modern living. A viewing will be essential to fully appreciate the quality and lifestyle opportunities offered by the cottage.

A part glazed front door opens into the reception hall which leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining/family room. To the left of the hall is the study which opens into the snug with working fireplace housing a wood burner. Either side of the fireplace are recessed cupboards and display shelves.

Running along the rear of the house is the kitchen which opens into a central dining area with a pair of French doors opening onto a paved dining terrace. The family room lies beyond enjoying a dual aspect. The play room lies off the dining area, which is a versatile area and could easily be used as a second study.

The kitchen features a range of bespoke Shaker units with granite work surfaces. Appliances include a Falcon double oven range cooker with five ring gas hob, Samsung full height fridge freezer and Miele dishwasher.

Lying off the kitchen is the fully fitted utility room with Belfast sink and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and second dishwasher. A part glazed stable door opens onto the gravelled parking area lying to the west of the cottage. An internal door offers access to the cloakroom.

A dog leg staircase rises gently to the first floor landing which runs through the middle of the house, and allows access to the airing cupboard and loft hatch. The boarded loft with lighting offers good storage space.

The master bedroom lies at the western end of the landing and enjoys a dual aspect, with views over open countryside to the front. The room has a vaulted ceiling and benefits from a walk-in dressing room and en suite shower room.

The guest bedroom lies at the other end of the landing with fitted wardrobes, display shelving and bi-folding doors revealing an en suite shower room.

Two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom are served by a well-equipped family bathroom which includes a generous tiled shower.

Running along the front elevation is a paved path. Lying to the west of the cottage are wooden gates opening onto a generous gravelled parking area, along with access to the Detached Oak Garage, with workshop area and boarded loft space above. Power and light are connected. Lying behind the garage is an outdoor storage area.

The main garden benefits from a southerly aspect and lies to the rear of the cottage. An extensive area of paving provides the perfect environment for outdoor dining and seating. Steps rise gently up to the raised lawn enclosed behind close boarded fencing with well stocked herbaceous borders running around the perimeter.
