Property Description

Full description

A charming and exceptionally well presented period cottage with part rendered, part stone elevations set in a small private enclave. The property is thought to date back to the mid 1800’s when it formed one of several outbuildings to the then Over Court Estate, before being re developed into a delightful residential dwelling.
The comfortable accommodation (circa 3243 square feet) is arranged over three floors and has been double glazed throughout with a linked utility/boot room providing access to a useful playroom/potential (sixth) bedroom to the rear which in turn sits over a large store room/workshop with double garage off. In our opinion this area of the house could be easily adapted to serve as a separate annex to the house if so desired.
The cottage further benefits from a delightfully private walled garden which enjoys a south westerly facing aspect.

Summary Of Accommodation - A pretty flagstone courtyard provides a welcoming and secure entrance. The front door opens into a central reception hall with carpeted staircase leading to a galleried landing. A cosy sitting room with exposed timber ceiling joists and cast iron wood burner has full height concertinaing doors on parliament hinges to one end opening into a glazed conservatory which in turn opens onto the rear garden. The sun room/conservatory enjoys an open south-westerly facing aspect over the rear garden. A door to one end of the sitting room opens into a study which includes a bespoke, hand built oak corner desk that incorporates comprehensive book shelving. French doors to one end open to the front garden. A third reception room/dining room is reached off the entrance hall and in turn overlooks the front garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room looks into the attractive courtyard entrance and has a comprehensive range of bespoke oak fronted base and wall units by Smallbone of Devises kitchens. The units include glass fronted display cabinets a shelved walk-in pantry cupboard, numerous draw units as well as integral Bosch dishwasher and four ring Smeg gas hob with separate hot plate. In addition there is a Neff oven and microwave. There is ample room at one end of the kitchen for a dining table and chairs with stable doors opening onto the entrance courtyard. The utility room is reached off the kitchen and provides a link through to the playroom/potential sixth bedroom as well as the garage and workshop/gym. The utility room has a comprehensive range of kitchen units with plumbing for a washing machine and opening for a dryer, second AEG dishwasher and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. A short flight of stairs leads to the playroom which benefits from two Velux roof lights thereby providing plenty of natural day light and good eaves storage space.
The master bedroom overlooks the front garden and has built in shelved and hanging wardrobes with a door to an en-suite bathroom that is also accessed off the landing (Jack & Jill). The bathroom includes a bath, wash hand basin, w.c, large tiled shower and airing cupboard. There are two further double bedrooms reached off the first floor landing. A secondary staircase leads to the second floor landing comprising two double bedrooms, both with oriel windows, and built in wardrobes. There is also a separate bathroom with w.c serving these bedrooms.
The generously proportioned garage is accessed by an area of hard-standing with an up and over door. A door opens into the utility room and another door provides access to an internal workshop/store room which could provide for several different uses such as a gym for example. The store room has several base and wall units as well as power and lighting.
Externally, the cottage enjoys a delightfully well maintained private, walled garden which has a south westerly aspect. The garden is predominantly laid to level lawn with a screened vegetable and compost area to one end. A flagstone patio area flanks the faade of the house and provides an ideal area for external dining with a pedestrian side gate opening onto the access driveway, Water tap.
