Property Details:

Galewood Cottage is believed to date back to the 19th century and was previously a keepers cottage sited in the grounds of the former Galewood House.

Set within around an acre of mixed use land, this charming cottage would make an ideal family home or country retreat and offers privacy, peace and seclusion.

A winding path leads to the front door and entrance is into a wood and stone porch which is light and open with superb garden views.
High ceilings and cottage style wood doors run throughout the cottage and add to the character. Through one of these doors is the hallway and then the lounge.

This lovely room enjoys a dual aspect with views to the front and rear. A wood burning stove is housed within an Inglenook fireplace, providing additional warmth and cosiness.

A door leads left off the lounge to a rear corridor giving access to two double bedrooms. Windows in the hallway fill the space with natural light and there is built in storage cupboards and loft access.

The master bedroom benefits from built in wardrobes and a pleasant aspect over the front of the property. The second bedroom is a sizeable double room with a stripped wood floor.

To the right hand side, through an alcove, you will find the recently refitted family bathroom. There is a luxurious, double ended bath tub with shower taps over. The room also benefits from a contemporary, offset quadrant shower cubicle and spotlights in the ceiling.

The kitchen/diner is to the front of the property. Having recently been refitted, the kitchen benefits from a good range of wall and base units including glass display cupboard and wine rack. Complimentary solid woodwork surfaces and splash back tiling accentuate the styling. A freestanding Rangemaster oven sits with a chimney style extractor fan above. There are also additional spaces / plumbing for freestanding white goods.

The rear porch, down a few steps beyond the kitchen, houses the oil boiler and provides access to the self contained portion of the cottage. With its own access, this space includes a spacious double bedroom with views over the rear garden, and a shower room with large quadrant cubicle and electric shower. This suite has also recently been refitted with modern styling. There is the useful addition of an electric shaver point.

This self contained annexe would make an ideal multi use area for multi generational living or as a holiday let or guest suite.

Externally, the cottage is set in a secluded and private location with around an acre of land, providing endless possibilities. This land is ideal for someone who loves gardening or would like to set up a smallholding etc. Areas of the land include walled gardens, lawned areas, hedges, small woodland, large paddock and generous vegetable plot and glass greenhouse. There is also a single garage and
large parking area for several vehicles.

The paddock has approved planning permission for erection of a property which would make an ideal holiday let.

The cottage is located in an enviable position, enjoying both seclusion and access to main road links and amenities. The Quarry that was situated nearby in 2012 and shows up on Google Earth has now been fully restored to natural habitat with woodland, lake and pastures.

This property is, indeed, worthy of an internal appointment to view and we would recommend that you do this at your earliest convenience.
