Orchard Cottage is a detached house of brick elevations under a pitched tiled roof and was originally a barn before being first converted in the 1980s. The house was bought by our clients in 2009 and has been significantly extended and modernised throughout and now offers beautifully presented, stylish family accommodation.
The front door opens into a timber clad porch with door to the hall off which is a cloakroom. The kitchen / dining room is the former barn and is a superb family space at nearly 27' long with wood burning stove, two fitted dressers in the dining area and French doors to the terrace at the rear. The kitchen has a range of wall mounted and floor standing units, space and plumbing for a dishwasher, Belfast sink, granite worksurfaces and space for an American fridge/freezer and Range cooker. Off the kitchen there is also a utility room. From the hall double doors lead into the dining room / snug with the staircase to the first floor. The room flows into the sitting room which is a dual aspect room with wood burning stove, wooden floor and bi-fold doors to the terrace.
On the first floor the master bedroom overlooks the garden and has fine views of the countryside beyond. There is an ensuite shower room and walk-in wardrobe and two further good sized double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, a fourth bedroom overlooking the garden and a family bathroom.
Outside the garden is to the rear, ample parking to the front with double garage, workshop and room above.
The property is approached via a private drive leading to a tarmac parking area for a number of cars. There is a large double garage with electric roller door and workshop to the side. External wooden stairs lead to a room above the garage which is hard wired for wi-fi and data and could be an excellent home office or games room. A path to the side of the house leads to the rear where there is a private sheltered terrace accessed from the dining room and sitting room and steps lead up to the garden which is laid to lawn with some mature trees, plants and shrubs and fine views to the rear over the countryside beyond.
A former outbuilding has been converted and is fully insulated. It is currently used as a gym but would make a superb home office or studio. In all 0.31 acres.
