Property description

Tenure: Freehold

OWNERS' INSIGHT "I instantly fell in love with Cocoon Cottage thirty years ago, and it has been cherished home for me and my family ever since. The property is certainly unique, and for anyone like me who loves period property, there is a great deal of character. The gardens are secluded, and although i have left the top section to go wild, it has potential if anyone wishes to landscape.

The old house holds so many wonderful memories for me, watching my girls grow up and now grandchildren. It will be emotional to hand the keys over, but I know the time is right to downsize and let new owners make their memories."  

STEP INSIDE A pedestrian pathway from Coombe Lane leads to a gate opening into the private garden. The entrance door opens into a vestibule, leading into the SITTING ROOM which enjoys a window with seat overlooking the garden approach. A panelled door with leaded light detailing connects the KITCHEN, an irregular 'L' shape with door to the rear courtyard. The main area provides a range of white plank design units, worktops with one and a half bowl sink. Integrated gas hob and electric oven beneath. Provision for washing machine and tumble dryer. Two windows and a wall mounted gas boiler. The kitchen continues to a further area with space for the fridge freezer and general storage. The stairs ascend to the first floor landing with window seat overlooking the garden approach. The first floor level provides TWO BEDROOMS, one overlooking the garden approach and the second with French door opening to a bridge leading to the raised garden. The BATHROOM is a generous size comprising a double shower with glazed screen, panelled bath, WC and vanity unit with blue glass sink and matching cascade tap. Window to the side elevation. From the first landing, stairs continue to the second floor landing, once again enjoying a window with seat overlooking the garden approach. The second floor provides TWO FURTHER DOUBLE BEDROOMS.  

STEP OUTSIDE A particular feature of Cocoon Cottage is the private gardens. The main garden has been laid to artificial turf for ease of maintenance, enclosed by fenced boundaries. Access leads down the side of the house to a courtyard, from where direct access can be gained into the kitchen. A gateway opens to a pathway, which Cocoon Cottage has an easement to access the private higher area of garden which has been left wild, but great scope to landscape. The garden area can be approached from one of the first floor bedrooms via a bridge.  

PLEASE NOTE There are small areas of flying freehold.
