Offered for sale for the first time in over 40 years, this spacious and unique 3 bedroom detached period house is set in approximately 1 acre of stream bordered gardens with two double garages, an abundance of outbuildings and a beautiful garden which photos cannot do justice!

Approached over a gravelled driveway the property enters into the original part of the building. The cottage style open plan sitting room/ dining room has exposed ceiling beams, deep cilled windows and inglenook fireplace with open fire and bread oven.

Off the sitting room is a fitted kitchen with a range of wooden base and wall units with inset single bowl butler sink, oil fired aga, electric oven and windows to the rear elevation overlooking the rear garden. A utility which has space and plumbing for further white goods. To the rear of the utility room is a conservatory which enjoys views over the garden.

The original part of the building is constructed of cob walls. The extension was added approximately 20 years ago with a traditional brick and block build under a slate roof. To the ground floor there is a sunroom/ third reception room having access onto the garden, built in storage cupboard and spiral stair case with stair lift.

The original cottage has two bedrooms both with ample built in storage cupboards and family bathroom consisting of a three price suite having bath with shower attachment over, low level w.c. And wash hand basin. There is also an airing cupboard in situ. As well as access via the spiral staircase there is also an access door into the extension via the rear bedroom. To the first floor there is an impressive lounge which has feature fireplace with oil fired stove. The room is light and airy with exposed a frame ceiling, square and circular windows, glass roof above the spiral staircase and French doors leading on to the front garden. The master bedroom is to the rear of the lounge which has built in wardrobes, exposed 'A' frame vaulted ceilings and dual aspect windows. The master suite is complemented with an ensuite bathroom having four piece suite including corner bath with shower above.

The property is approached over a sweeping driveway leading past the property. The landscaped gardens surround the property being mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. The gardens have a stream border to two sides with hedgerow to the remainder. Adjacent to the property there are two adjoined double garages. The first garage has water and power connected with personal door to the side and windows opposite, there is also a central log burner. The second garage also has power connect with personal door to the side and up and over door to the end elevation. A block build outbuilding with triple aspect windows gives additional storage. To the center of the gardens there is a greenhouse dome, ideal for the avid gardener. Additonally there is a open swimming pool in need of some attention along with timber built workshop nearby. To the rear of the gardens there is a woodland with more storage sheds and wildlife area. The top garden has vegetable beds and greenhouse with a second driveway into the property. The description really cannot do the garden justice and must be seen to be appreciated.
