Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This charmingly picturesque Grade II Listed mid-terrace cottage is brimming with Gothic charm aplenty and is nestled in the heart of the stunning Haigh Country Park conservation area. Perfectly presented to enhance the rustic features, the accommodation has two double bedrooms, two spacious reception rooms, a well-chosen kitchen and complementary utility room and two bathrooms – one to each floor.  With lawn gardens to the front, a terrace garden to the rear and private parking for two cars, this is an idyllic prospect for the taking.

This charming cottage is set beyond a white painted picket fence and a wrought iron gate which opens to a gravel path leading directly to the front door and has a lawn to one side with privet and picket boundaries.
The painted timber door with opaque glass panels and fanlight over opens to the porch, lit by a ceiling light and having timber wall panels to dado height.  The exposed oak floorboards reach beyond the latch door to the sitting room and continue through to the dining room and kitchen.  The comfortably spacious sitting room has a window to the front with gothic arches incorporated into the design and a central pendant and three wall lights provide evening ambience.  The chimney breast has a brick faced ingle housing a log burning stove which rests on a hearth of black and green slate whilst a radiator supplements the warmth on chillier days.  Two small cupboards house the energy meters, a spindle staircase rises to the first floor and a latch door opens to the dining room. The generously spacious dining room has French windows opening to the rear terrace garden and, for evening time, there is a wall light and a central pendant light suspended above the table space.  The focal point of the room is the tall sandstone fire surround with a brick back, slate hearth and now has a concealed light within to augment the feature. A latch door opens to the under-stair storage cupboard and a further door opens to the kitchen.  The sleek, contemporary style of the grey-bleached wood effect kitchen cabinets and deep drawers, having grey-briquette tiling between levels and Silestone effect work-surfaces plus an inset stainless steel sink unit, fits ideally into the natural surroundings of the cottage. Also inset is a four-ring ceramic hob with a canopy extractor fan above and a raised and inset oven and grill alongside. The canopy also has recessed down-lights and there are two ceiling lights for added working light. A unit niche is available for a fridge freezer whilst the adjoining laundry room, with kitchen complementary cabinets, has plumbing for a washing machine and houses the Vaillant wall mounted gas central heating combination boiler.  The tiled flooring of the laundry room continues beyond a latch door into the bathroom which is fitted with a coloured three-piece suite comprising corner spa bath with moulded seat, a pedestal wash basin and low flush w.c., all having strategically placed splash tiling.   
The butterfly staircase rises to the first-floor landing with a spindle balustrade and a pendant light.  The right wing has three risers to bedroom one with a Gothic arch window overlooking the front garden and a central pendant light.  Two double, wood-effect wardrobes are fitted to one wall and have a matching fitted tall-boy plus a dressing table recess. To the left wing, bedroom two is a further double sized room which has a high-level window to the rear and a ceiling light.  Wood-effect wardrobes are fitted to one wall and shelves to another and the laminate flooring coordinates well.  The bedrooms are served by a shower room with exposed floor-board style laminate flooring and ceramic splash tiling where needed.  The contemporary white suite comprises a corner glass cubicle with Triton shower, a pedestal wash basin and a close coupled w.c.   A large, fitted base cabinet with sliding doors provides excellent storage for linen and toiletries, the room is lit by a ceiling light and a radiator is on hand to warm the towels. The rear terrace garden is perfect for container planting, provides space for a bistro table and chairs, has an outside tap and is bordered by a line of fencing above the painted pig-stone wall which stretches to the rear gate.  Beyond the gate, the communal driveway gives way to the private parking plot opposite and also has a narrow summerhouse and store.  The idyllic setting offers a peaceful retreat with an abundance of wildlife and birds settling in the surrounding woodlands of the park, and the farm fields beyond offer sublime views and walks. Viewing is strictly by appointment through Maria B Evans Estate Agents We are reliably informed that the Tenure of the property is FREEHOLD   Please note: Room measurements given in these property details are approximate and are supplied as a guide only.
