The property has been carefully restored and maintained by the current owners and is offered to the market in excellent condition. This detached house was a farmer’s cottage some 300 years ago and was extended in the 1960s to create a spectacular family home, with further additions by the current owners of a double garage, garden room and separate building at the bottom of the garden perfectly suited to being used as a home office.
From the lane, through the hardwood electric gates, the property benefits from a gravel driveway with ample parking and the recent addition of an electric car charging point. Upon entering the home, you will find the large sitting room with a central multi-fuel/log burning stove, exposed wood beams and beautiful uncovered flint-stone wall. The newer half of the ground floor offers a formal dining room with original parquet flooring and a bespoke solid oak kitchen with granite worktops and integrated Miele appliances. The kitchen leads through to an oak framed garden room, a flexible space with under-floor heating that could be used as an additional sitting room or home office with direct views and access to the garden.
The upper floor of the cottage offers three double bedrooms all with bespoke built in storage and an additional single bedroom currently utilised as a dressing room. There is also a family shower room, a further family bathroom, a laundry cupboard complete with plumbing for washing machine and tumble drier plus an extra w/c with access to further storage.
Outside, the garden has been cleverly designed to offer flexible multi-use areas such as a covered dining area, a traditional kitchen garden and two separate areas laid to lawn. One of the more recent additions to the outside space is a hand-built brick clay oven perfect for al-fresco entertaining. In the rear gardens there are three substantial sheds and a greenhouse as well as an outside home office complete with separate w/c. In the past three years the cottage has been re-thatched and the oil-fired boiler and oil tank replaced. The property also benefits from electronically controlled heating and hot water and is fitted with a centrally monitored burglar alarm and smoke detectors.
