Property Description

Full description

Set in a peaceful hamlet, close to the village of Newton St Loe, we are delighted to introduce this 4 bed classic English cottage with an additional ground floor bedroom/ annex, hosting a farmhouse style kitchen and most pleasant gardens and surrounds.

If you are looking for a country escape which ticks all of the boxes, this quintessential Newton St Loe English cottage won't disappoint. One of the few independently owned cottages within the village, given that most retain their Duchy ownership. Here, the Newton St Loe farm shop is a destination in itself.

The reception rooms boast exposed beams, whilst the grounds enjoy wildlife galore; a variety of songbirds visit these charming gardens. An ideal spot for a wildlife enthusiast, walker or cyclist, as the cottage is situated on a most pretty lane, with a view of rolling countryside.

The well appointed sitting room enjoys a substantial inglenook fireplace. The sitting room leads into an extension which houses a bedroom with en-suite and dressing room area. This bedroom could alternatively become a self-contained annex. There are two doors to the gardens from the annex and there is enough space to add a kitchen within if desired.

The dining room, with its stone mullions and timber framed windows, is generous in size and has a very pleasant outlook onto the beautifully maintained gardens. Given that the kitchen is also generously proportioned, the dining room could become a snug, playroom or family room for those wanting to dine within the kitchen.

The kitchen offers a variety of pretty vistas, with a mix of granite and oak surfaces, with a bespoke integrated oak dresser. A door here opens onto a pretty courtyard for outdoor entertaining, surrounded by layers of mature shrubs and plants in flower. Everything a cook might need is here; thoughtfully designed fully integrated cupboards, soft close drawers and an electric AGA, set within plenty of natural light. Hand painted tiles complete this classic family cottage kitchen.

A locally crafted oak staircase (allowing plenty of storage space underneath) takes us to the four double bedrooms upstairs, all of which are a good size and have pretty views. The master bedroom has deep set windows, again with stone mullions, and twin window seats. The master bedroom has an en-suite with floor to ceiling tiling, a bidet and a shower over the bath. The family bathroom is practically sized and has a separate bath and shower.

In the gardens to the rear of the property stands a fully equipped, detached and substantial home office with windows overlooking the garden and fields beyond. There is also a summer house in the grounds.

The gardens have a gazebo and greenhouse. They have been arranged in such a way that there are at least six different nooks in which one can sit and soak up the peacefulness and surrounding natural beauty.
