Full description

This hugely appealing cottage has been painstakingly restored by the present owners, creating a unique home that combines a wealth of period character with a stylish contemporary finish.

The property is believed to date from the early14th Century and is Grade II Listed. Inside a dual aspect sitting room with exposed ceiling beams and impressive Inglenook fireplace leads through to an equally delightful downstairs bedroom (currently used as a dining room), both featuring Brazilian blue slate flooring. A stunning kitchen with 'Mark Wilkinson' granite worktops, integrated appliances and a 5 door red AGA opens to a breakfast/family room with a continuation of the blue slate flooring. There is a spacious drawing room with log burner that could be used as a fourth bedroom. The first floor master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and attractive fireplace, the bespoke bathroom with quality sanitary ware comprises a roll top bath and double width 'rain' shower. A 20ft vaulted third bedroom and walk-in wardrobe occupies the second floor. Outside the quintessential cottage gardens have been lovingly created and nurtured with an array of colourful borders, specimen trees, private seating areas plus a block paved driveway with parking for 2/3 cars.
