We have pleasure in offering to the market this handsome double fronted Grade II Listed period cottage which offers a deceptive level of accommodation and occupies a lovingly established plot which affords a high degree of privacy, extends to approximately a third of an acre overlooking paddocks to the rear and with gated access to the front with generous off road parking and double garage.

The property offers a wealth of character and features starting with its aesthetically pleasing brick elevations beneath attractive clay pantiled roof and internally offers a versatile level of accommodation having been extended to the rear elevation creating a spacious home approaching 2500 square feet.

The living rooms offer the original exposed timbers and period doors, live fireplaces and attractive cottage style multi-pane windows. The accommodation extends to five receptions including the addition of a Vale Garden Room which benefits from a delightful aspect across the beautiful gardens. This room leads up to the kitchen which has been sympathetically refurbished with a generous range of hand painted farmhouse style units and varnished timber worktops with two oven gas Aga. There is a beautifully appointed modernised utility room and ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor is accessed by two staircases with split level landings leading to four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a useful study situated on an attractive mezzanine area with wonderful open views to the rear.

The gardens are a true delight, well stocked with an abundance of trees and shrubs as well as generous lawns and horticultural areas with greenhouse and vegetable garden tucked away and overlooking adjacent paddocks. Within the garden is an attractive timber summerhouse which provides a delightful place to sit and relax enjoying the tranquility of this wonderful location.

The property is set well back from Mill Lane behind gated and hedged frontage with generous parking and brick and pantiled double garage.

Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
