The Property
Entering the property via the front stable door we are welcomed into the entrance hall where the character yet immaculate crispness of this property is instantly apparent. A reclaimed brick floor provides a charming yet practical space to to leave our boots after a countryside walk, before entering the cottage. From here an oak latch and brace door pushes open to the sitting room where our eye is instantly drawn to the impressive vaulted ceiling which runs through the majority of the home. Under foot solid oak wooden flooring compliments the room and reflects the huge amount of natural light that flows in from both the window over looking the front gardens and the patio doors that open to the terrace and enjoy the stunning field views. Concrete pads are in place below the flooring to offer a variety of positions for a wood burning stove should a purchaser require. As we step into the family kitchen dining room we pass the door that leads to the separate utility room where provisions and space are made for our required appliances. In the kitchen the continuation of the oak wooden flooring and vaulted ceiling makes the two spaces flow as one when entertaining. French stable doors open from the dining area to the patio terrace and allow us to enjoy the stunning views. The kitchen itself has been fitted with an extensive range of shaker style base units set under contrasting solid wooden work surfaces. A dishwasher is found integrated to the units whilst space is made for our fridge freezer and our cooker is in place. A stainless steel sink sits below the window overlooking the front gardens. At the far end of the property we find our master bedroom suite. This generous double room is again filled with light from two aspects. An oak door from here leads to the stunning en-suite shower room where the high standard found throughout the property continues. A one and half size shower cubicle is set inside the door way whilst the suite is completed with a wash basin and w/c. The vaulted ceiling spans the master suite continuing the charm of this home. To the opposite end of the property we find the guest quarters. An inner lobby opens to both the double guest bedroom and main bathroom. The guest bedroom enjoys the view to the front of the property. This is the only room that does not feature a vaulted ceiling but offers an insulated loft room above ideal for storage or a potential office space. The main bathroom completes the accommodation and boasts a modern suite comprising a bath with shower and screen over, a wash basin and close coupled w/c. .

Outside
From the road we approach Major Cottage via a timber gate which opens to the extensive shingle driveway. The driveway leads to the front of the cottage where an ample parking and turning area also provides vehicular access to the workshop where power and light are connected. The LPG gas tank is discreetly situated to the side of the drive way away from the cottage and garden areas. Major Cottage sits central to the 0.24 acre (stms) plot with the grounds being mainly laid to new lawn. A range of established perennial shrubs find their home in the front garden whilst a low lying flower bed runs to the front of the property. At the rear the new lawns contrast against the stunning patio terrace which leads from both the sitting room and kitchen dining room this space provides the perfect spot to enjoy the open field views which stretch over 100 plus acres of farm land.
