The Property
Brebner Cottage is a delightful period cottage situated on the sought-after Painshawfield Estate. The property, originally part of the stables to the nearby farm, is thought to have been converted into a residential cottage during the early part of the twentieth century. Brebner Cottage has been sympathetically renovated in recent years yet retains an abundance of charm and character with period features including panelled doors, picture rails, exposed beams and fireplaces. Today the cottage offers spacious accommodation over two floors in a picturesque semi-rural setting.

The front door leads into a bright entrance porch that leads into the hall which gives access to the sitting room and has stairs up to the first floor. The sitting room is generously proportioned, has a picture window to the front, stripped floor boards, exposed ceiling beams and two fireplaces, one housing a multi-fuel stove and the other a gas stove. There are also two useful under stairs storage cupboards. A door from the sitting room opens into the kitchen/dining room which is located to the rear of the property. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke limed oak units with complementary granite work surfaces and beech butcher's block, ceramic sink and drainer, gas hob and electric oven. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs and two windows offer views over the rear courtyard and raised terrace. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a utility room which is also fitted with limed oak units, is plumbed for a dishwasher and washing machine and has space for a tumble dryer and a door to the rear courtyard. Both the kitchen and utility room have attractive, practical stone flooring.

Stairs from the hall lead up to the first floor landing which gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation. The master bedroom enjoys views to the front, has a period cast iron fireplace and benefits from an en-suite shower room with contemporary suite. There are two further double bedrooms, one to the front and the other situated to the rear with views over the rear courtyard and terrace. These bedrooms are served by a bathroom fitted with a double-ended bath, wash hand basin, WC and tiled floor.

Externally
To the front of Brebner Cottage there is a small gravelled area with attractive border planting that offers a delightful seating area. To the rear there is a paved courtyard with stone outhouse that benefits from a power supply. Stone steps lead up to a charming raised terrace, with boundary beech hedging, that is positioned to enjoy the tranquil setting and the sun at various times of the day.

Note: There is a right of way for Brebner Cottage across the boundary of the neighbouring property for the collection and removal of dustbins. In turn, the neighbouring property, Spring Cottage, has a right of way across the rear courtyard for the same use.
