This is a fabulous opportunity to acquire an immaculately presented former Chapel Caretaker's Cottage in an extremely desirable location. Built in the early to mid-1800s, Grade ll listed Ella Cottage retains all of the charm and character of a period property, with high quality finishes and fixtures throughout, sympathetically upgraded by the current owner of over 8 years.

Mill Square is a beautifully tranquil spot in a friendly neighborhood in popular Wootton Bridge. Close enough to the local village amenities, including a mini-supermarket, chemist, doctors, dentists, vet and take-away restaurants, with an 18th Century inn and restaurant on the doorstep, and also giving access to marvelous footpaths for walking in the rural landscape and with Wootton Creek, large mill pond and the woodland of Firestone Copse just a stone's throw away, this property offers the best of both worlds.
Village living with select Creek views, in a charismatic cottage packed with period features including original sash windows, open fireplaces and a surprisingly expansive walled garden awaits the new owners.

The cottage is set back from the road, accessible by a quiet gravel track, which affords this home the quiet location that is so desirable, and comprises of a light and bright lounge, characterful dining room, kitchen and lean-to, two charming bedrooms, a generous family bathroom, and with fantastic mature gardens to the rear.
There are great transport links to the mainland from Wootton, with a vehicle ferry terminal in nearby Fishbourne, and fantastic road access to the larger towns of Newport to the west and Ryde to the east.
Approaching Ella Cottage from the gravel road, two stone steps lead up to a low maintenance stone paved front garden, giving way to the proud fascia of the building, with its flat brick arch detailing, welsh slate roof and immaculately presented front door.

LOUNGE 11'1 x 11'2 into alcoves
The bright lounge features a smooth white ceiling, this enhances the abundance of light which floods through the original 16 pane sash window, there is a calming neutral colour scheme. A large oak fire surround, sourced locally, sits on the deep chimney breast, this compliments the substantial stone hearth. There are bookshelves with a cupboard under to one alcove, with a single deep shelf built in to the other. The lounge also features a radiator under the window and a telephone point. Stripped pine floorboards feature an inlaid welcome mat. A doorway leads to the stairs and through to the dining room.

DINING ROOM 11'6 x 11' into alcoves
A very cosy space, with a host of original features. Fantastic original doors compliment the large sash window that afford garden views through the glass roofed lean-to. A magnificent exposed brick chimney sits on a rustic stone hearth ideal for a wood burning stove. Large built in cupboards to one alcove are a useful addition, while further storage space under the stairs is accessed through a period timber door, and features fitted shelves and an independent light. The dining room has a radiator under the window, plus a telephone point and thermostat control. The stripped pine floorboards continue through from the lounge, as does the fantastically light and tasteful neutral colour scheme. A door leads to the kitchen.

KITCHEN 7'10 x 5'9 reducing to 5'3
High quality enamel style halogen spots light this efficiently laid out kitchen. The pale blue walls reflect the proximity to the creek and Solent beyond. A cottage window is charming in appearance. Part of the wall is painted brick, which reveals the character of this fabulous cottage. There is a mix of floor and wall units, with chic, country style doors. Complimentary tiles form a splash back over a beech wood coloured roll edged worktop, which features an integrated gas hob with electric oven under, and also a stainless sink and drainer with mixer tap over. There is space for a fridge, and space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is an extractor fan fitted. A handy towel rail hides under one end of the work surface, and a small radiator warms the space. The kitchen is finished with high quality, slate coloured tiles, and has a door through to the lean-to.

LEAN TO
From the kitchen, a glazed panel door leads to a compact enclosed lean-to. With a glazed roof and fresh white paint, the sense of space is accentuated by the sash window to the dining room and fabulous ornate glazed doors opening on to the garden. Built in shelving makes the most of the available space to one wall, a double socket is a useful addition and the same high-quality slate coloured tiles continue from the kitchen.

STAIRWAY
Accessed between the lounge and dining room, the stairway to the first floor features stripped pine floorboards to the ground floor, and a newly laid neutral carpet on the stairs. Smoke alarms are fitted on both levels, and there is a small radiator on the ground floor. A timber handrail is complimented by exposed timber detailing over the stairs, and leads to the first floor, where there are doors that lead off to bedrooms 1 and 2.

This is a perfectly proportioned room, filled with light, with another smooth white ceiling. A large sash window to the front aspect affords sunny views over the gravel road and select gardens beyond. A small original fireplace is finished in white and sits in a characterful deep chimney breast. A characterful door leads to the useful over-stairs storage, complete with hanging space and built in shelving. Bedroom one is decorated in tasteful neutral shades, and the neutral carpet continues through. A radiator is positioned under the window.

BEDROOM TWO 11'2 x 11'1 into alcoves

There is a loft access hatch in bedroom two, leading to a part boarded, insulated loft with lighting.

BATHROOM

There is a radiator plus an additional Dimplex electric heater, while a built-in cupboard houses the Vaillant boiler with slatted shelves over. A white pedestal basin has traditional style chrome taps, and a tiled surround. There is a full-size bath fitted neatly to one side, and features a traditional style chrome mixer tap. The bath is tiled around, and the tiles continue around a matching white low-level WC, complete with dual flush. Attractive and practical beech wood style lino finishes the bathroom.

OUTSIDE
From the lean-to, the attractive glazed door leads on to a hard-paved courtyard, surrounded by the characterful cladding of the cottage wall and high-quality feather edged fencing opposite. Accessed through a traditional timber door finished in contemporary grey, the outside WC is an added bonus, and features it's own patterned glass window and an extremely useful outside tap. A stunning brick wall looks over the further courtyard, which provides a perfectly proportioned seating area. Up a pair of brick steps, beside a low retaining wall made out of rustic sleepers, a brick path bisects a smart lawn area and attractive mature borders. The characterful brick wall runs the length of the garden, with feather edged fencing surrounding the rest. Substantial stone borders give way to a surprisingly large L-shape, giving this garden a considerable footprint and making the most of the sun. The double-width section is laid to lawn, with a patio perfect for barbequing next to a rustic log store. There is a well-maintained garden shed, complete with windows sitting on a substantial concrete base, this is negotiable. This really is a superb garden, very pretty and very manageable without being too small. Overall an absolute delight inside and out.
