Property Description

Full description

A characterful and attractive property in a charming location

Ceili Dé, meaning ‘Companions of God’, is a delightful Grade II Listed cottage full of original features. The cottage, which is semi-detached, forms the larger part of an original 17th Century farmhouse with later additions including a sizeable two-storey 19th Century extension. All elevations are rendered and largely thatched which was renewed in 2013.

An entrance hall with internal glazing sits between the study, currently used as a bedroom, and the sitting room with original inglenook fireplace containing a pretty wood-burning stove. The kitchen has a two-door oil-fired Rayburn, a large stainless steel sink and a butler’s sink and there is a useful and intriguing pantry. The ground floor shower room with separate WC, added to the property in 2004, gives access to both the back yard with garden beyond and the south-east facing terrace. The library, formerly a butcher’s shop with recessed arcades in the walls, has an attractive wooden floor and plenty of shelving as well as a door to the front garden.

A narrow staircase leads to the first floor with a large double bedroom containing a walk in shower. There is another double bedroom and family bathroom as well as an airing cupboard on the landing. A character staircase with shelving leads to an attic double bedroom which has a basin and wonderful views over the Benhall Estate fields.

Ceili Dé is as much about its surroundings as it is about its enchanting interior. The property sits within delightful gardens which extend to the front and back with a sun trap terrace along one side. There are lawns, trees, climbing roses, honeysuckle, a secret pond and numerous timber outbuildings. A paved driveway provides parking for two cars and a single garage, currently divided and used for storage, is accessed via a shared lane.
