Sold STC £525,000
As featured on Sarah Beeny and Channel 4's "Double your house for half the money" programme! A superb rurally located home with attractive outlooks to both the front and in particular to the rear. The scale of the property belies the humble origins of the cottage and with accommodation arranged over two floors, the property comprises an entrance porch, a welcoming combined dining/family room which opens to the delightfully fitted kitchen with its granite worktops and breakfast bar and an adjacent downstairs cloakroom. A lovely handmade oak door opens to reveal the exceptional new sitting room, over 22ft and with triple aspects including tri-fold doors which open on to the deck and look out over the gardens and farmland to the rear. Upstairs the substantial new master bedroom could easily be sub-divided to provide a fourth bedroom or perhaps even a dressing room, and there are double doors enticing one to stare at the stunning view to the rear. There are two further bedrooms and a beautifully refitted bathroom. There are lovely solid oak doors throughout with black latch furniture and lovely fireplaces in both the kitchen/family room and the main sitting room, both with log burners. Outside, there is a generous driveway with an electrically operated sliding five-bar gate and the rear garden extends to about 70ft and looks out over the adjacent field. In all then, an exceptional home in a delightful rural situation and viewings are strongly recommended with the vendor's sole agents, Courtney Green.
