A door to the front of the cottage opens into a double glazed porch, which provides space for shoes/boots. An inner door then leads through to a traditional entrance hall which incorporates the staircase to the first floor accommodation, an under stairs cupboard and a tiled floor. Adjoining the hall is the sitting room, which has an pretty fireplace with open fire, a window to the front of the property and a very pleasant countryside view. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall units in a farmhouse style and offers space for freestanding white good and a range cooker. The kitchen then steps up and opens out into a fabulous extension at the rear of the house, which provides a second reception room with skylight windows and a slate tiled floor (please note the wood burning stove pictured is not included). A particularly social space, this part of the property is spacious, has double doors opening out to the garden and can comfortably accommodate a dining table and chairs. There is access from the living room into a useful utility room (which houses the boiler for the oil-fired central heating) and through the bathroom. Thoughtfully designed when extending the property, the dual-aspect bathroom is presented on two levels and includes a matching white suite with a low level WC, a wash hand basin, a corner shower cubicle and a freestanding bath with mixer taps.
On the first floor, there is a landing space with hatch into the loft which is currently used as a study area and has light, power and a skylight window. The Master bedroom is a good size double room and incorporates a WC with wash hand basin and a window to the front with an excellent view. There are two additional bedrooms, both of which are singles (one with a built in airing cupboard).
OUTSIDE To the front of the property, there is a small area of shingle with mature borders and a deck pathway to the entrance. From the rear, there is a patio seating area with steps up to the garden. A generous size, the garden is predominantly laid to lawn, enclosed to all sides and has various sections ideal for seating. There is an impressive view from the south-western side of the garden which looks out across the neighbouring countryside and beyond. A right of access across a driveway at the side of the terrace leads to an area of gated off-road parking (for several vehicles), private to this property and also accessed on foot from the garden. From here, a sliding door enters into a useful outbuilding which has light and power and is currently split into two rooms - the first measures 15'6'' x 8'3'' and has a window to the rear and side. A door then leads through to a second room which measures 15'6'' x 9'9'' and includes a wood burning stove. This outbuilding offers lots of potential and could suit those who would like a home office, studio or a gym. In addition, steps at the back of the parking area give access up to a summerhouse.
