Full description

Understood to have origins dating back to the 19th century, Hazelnut Cottage is a fabulous home of considerable character and personality, standing within delightful grounds of approximately 2.3 acres, complemented by a wonderful rural setting, situated along a quiet lane surrounded by open countryside. The house has recently been the subject of sympathetic refurbishment and improvement with works carried out including re-roofing in 2011 (10 year guarantee), AAA rated windows (2012), oil fired Aga (2014 with 5 year guarantee) and extensions in 1990.

The beautifully arranged accommodation retains many original features, is particularly well presented and currently in brief comprises: Entrance door opening to hall with door to a dining room, which is a pleasant room for entertaining with stairs off to first floor, fireplace, exposed beams and open studwork to the superb kitchen breakfast room, fitted with an extensive range of units beneath wooden preparation surfaces and complemented by built in appliances and a traditional oil fired Aga. A door opens to a rear hall with door to garden. A separate utility room has fitted units and oil fired boiler supplying the heating system, and a door leads to a spacious bathroom. The comfortable sitting room is a delightful reception with exposed timbers, door to garden, fireplace with wood burning stove. A study with window overlooking the gardens completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor is a landing with airing cupboard, master suite affording stunning countryside views, fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower. There are three further bedrooms, and a shower room completes the first floor accommodation.

The property also has a substantial double carport, logstore and timber shed, 2 greenhouses and other useful outbuildings. The gardens are a fabulous feature, being beautifully maintained, sympathetically landscaped and complemented by well- stocked flower beds, shrubs and mature trees including willow and oak. Expansive lawns surround the cottage and there is a lovely terrace providing a superb outdoor area for entertaining. There is a fruit orchard and vegetable garden with fruit cage plus a paddock of approximately 1 acre. The grounds are surrounded by views of open countryside and extend in all to approximately 2.3 acres (s.t.s).
