A beautiful Grade II listed cottage thought to date back to the mid 1600's having been extended to the rear to offer spacious accommodation and boasting stunning gardens to the front and rear as well as a spinney and spectacular countryside views.

General - Cream Cottage is a picturesque family home dating back in part to the 17th century and located in the highly regarded rural village Claybrooke Parva. The property has been owned and loved by the same family for over thirty years and vastly improved and extended in that time to create a substantial residence positioned on an extensive and mature plot including a spinney, totalling approximately 0.4 acres. To the ground floor the property is entered via an entrance hall with an extended porch area which gives access to two reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen and a cloakroom. The sitting room has windows to three aspects creating a cosy but well lit room and to one corner is an impressive inglenook fireplace. A spacious dining room with open fire facility is positioned to the opposite side of the house. The extended breakfast kitchen also boasts windows to three aspects and leads through to a useful utility room and workshop / storage area with lavatory beyond.
