Full description

This chocolate box pretty detached cottage of handmade brick, painted stone lintels and a pillar-box red door is equally as compelling on the interior having been finished to a perfecting standard of care and yet still having potential for further expansion.

The pillar-box red painted timber door with glazed insert opens to the hallway which has a window to the front, space for coats rack and a ceramic tiled floor with under-floor heating which then continues into the spacious, combined lounge and dining room beneath the oak flooring. Double timber doors with glazed inserts open to the charming dining room with a side window, French windows to the rear garden, exposed ceiling beams and a Flavel multi-fuel stove resting on a raised stone hearth to one corner of the room. The oak flooring continues beyond the exposed brick stanchions to an archway divide leading to the comfortable lounge with natural light from the front and side windows. Taking centre stage is the brick ingle fireplace with multi-fuel stove resting in a stone flagged hearth and a sandstone lintel above. A latch door from here leads to the inner hallway and a further door opens to the breakfast kitchen where the oak floor follows through.  The well appointed white gloss kitchen cabinets incorporate drawer banks and shelves and have wood effect work surfaces over, plus a bespoke glass breakfast bar.  An inset one and a half bowl enamel sink unit with mixer tap is set beneath the window to the rear. Inset into a niche is the four ring ceramic hob with extractor fan above and an oven and grill below.  There is space for an automatic dishwasher and larder style fridge freezer and double doors open to the garden.  

The inner Hall has a turned spindle staircase rising to the first floor and also a door to the attached two storey outrigger which is currently used as a utility room with ample space and plumbing for essential white goods plus a few extras and a door to the rear.  An opening also follows into a further room, currently used as a gym, which also has a door to the rear plus a ladder reaching the very spacious first floor storage area.  This outrigger is perfect for conversion to additional living space or a self contained annexe given the correct and appropriate consent.  

The staircase has a large, opaque window to the front at the half way point and the landing has both pendant and wall lighting.  Bedroom one has a window to the front, pendant light and ample space for clothes storage furniture.  A decorative cast iron fireplace remains in situ and has built in drawer chest to one side of the chimney breast.  Bedroom two is also a good sized double room, has a window to the front and, similarly, has a decorative cast iron fireplace to one side.  Bedroom three is a generous single room which overlooks the rear garden.  The family bathroom has graphite shaded wall tiling, coordinating floor tiling and painted wall panels forming the backdrop to the white four piece suite comprising tile panelled bath, walk- wet room style sprinkler shower, pedestal wash basin and close coupled w.c.  Finishing touches include an inset display niche, a chrome ladder style heated rail warms the towels and inset spotlights illuminate.

The property is approached on foot via a picket gate set into a low privet hedge and a brick path leads to the pillar-box red painted door of this "chocolate-box" pretty cottage of hand-made brick.  To one side is an Indian stone flagged driveway with parking for two cars before the double timber gates and further parking beyond, leading to a detached brick built garage with sliding timber door, two side windows, power and light.  The flagged area continues around the rear of the property to the outrigger and abuts the secluded lawn area allowing for sun throughout the day, with sleeper-edged border planting and slate chipped al fresco dining area, barbecue space and log store.

Plans for the development of the annexe are available upon request.
