Description: The Butts Cottage is a beautiful part oak timber-framed cottage originally dating back to the 17th century with 20th century extensions, surrounded by around 3.35 acres of gently undulating gardens, grounds, paddocks and stream. This traditional property is awash with original features, including large leaded light windows, original oak doors, open fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams, along with sympathetic later additions including polished oak floors and character oak doors. The well-kept grounds include former paddocks offering opportunities for grazing and equestrian activities. The accommodation is flexible and spacious, with views over the gardens from most rooms, and has further potential to create a wonderful family home.

In brief, the accommodation comprises:
• Reception Hall with impressive oak panelled door, oak floor, beamed ceiling and part stained glass leaded window to the front aspect.
• Spacious Breakfast Kitchen having a good range of units incorporating an electric oven with extractor over, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, along with two large store cupboards. There is a perfect space for a breakfast table next to the French doors which lead out to a stone paved terrace and a large window affords views over the gardens.
• Well-proportioned, triple-aspect Drawing Room, which again has lovely views over the gardens and French doors out to a stone paved terrace, along with a beamed ceiling and an open fire set in a feature brick inglenook with a copper hearth.

• To the first floor is a generous Landing with room for seating or a desk, a large airing cupboard plus further store cupboard and an attractive oak floor matching that of the reception hall (currently carpeted).

The property is well set back from the road along a gated tarmacked driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to the Double Garage, which has two up and over doors and storage above. The property is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds totalling around 3.35 acres including former paddocks which have been used by the vendors as gardens. There is great potential to use these as paddocks, as they have the benefit of separate gated access to the road and there is a small brick-built Stable with hayloft above.

The private and peaceful gardens and grounds are easy to manage, being mainly laid to lawn with many mature specimen trees including four apple trees. A stream runs through the grounds, crossed by several stone bridges and running into Piddle Brook. There is also an ornamental pond. A large stone paved terrace is accessed from the drawing room, kitchen and utility/boot room, providing the ideal setting for al fresco dining and relaxing.
