**Guide Price £850,000 - £900,000**
A charming Grade II Listed cottage located in a secluded situation down a country lane, within beautiful gardens and 20 acres of land.

Ellen Hall is an attractive detached Grade II Listed period cottage, the elevations being part ashlar stone and red brick with weather-boarded upper elevations beneath a hipped tiled roof.

The accommodation has a great deal of character with all of the rooms having good ceiling heights. An impressive oak front door leads to an excellent reception hall with cloakroom and an oak staircase to first floor.

The sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with oak bressumer beam and copper canopy, stone hearth and exposed ceiling timbers. This is a lovely double aspect room with bow window overlooking the garden.

The dining room has a window overlooking the garden and double opening glazed doors lead to the garden.

The kitchen has a twin bowl sink unit inset into work surfaces with cupboards and drawers beneath. A further range of work surfaces have an inset ceramic hob, there is a Neff double oven and quarry tiled floor. A door leads to the utility/boot room housing the oil-fired boiler, which is about one year old, and there is a stable door to the rear terrace.

On the first floor the landing has some lovely oak timbering, and bedroom 1 is a charming double aspect room with built-in wardrobes, cupboard and shelving, and views over the garden. There are two further bedrooms, one of which has a fireplace fitted with stove (untested) and they have views over the garden and farmland. There is a family bathroom with panel-enclosed bath, WC and vanity unit.

OUTSIDE
Ellen Hall is approached from the country lane through a gate onto a parking area which leads to a single garage of brick construction beneath a pitched tiled roof, with light and power connected. A pathway winds to the front door and continues on to a sheltered terrace.

The beautiful mature gardens and grounds of about 2.6 acres enjoy privacy and are very well stocked with mature trees and shrubs including roses, buddleia, oaks, apples, azaleas, etc.

Within the gardens there is a summerhouse to the rear of which is a hidden garden machinery/log store. Two bridges cross the stream and lead to a stunning area of woodland under-planted with bluebells, where there is an exquisite and plentiful selection of Japanese maples, which provide glorious Autumn colour.

Directly opposite the drive a five bar gate leads into a large field (13 acres) with woodland shaw, this is laid to grass and there are wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.

To the north of the cottage is a further area of land extending to 4.5 acres which has been largely unmanaged and has a small oak plantation to its southern end, the remainder is laid to rough grass.

Garden and grounds in all about 20 acres.
