Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Beautifully set within two acres of glorious land, the finished article of this impressive estate has proven to be an intensive labour of love by the current owners, resulting in a home which will likely change any prospective buyer's complete lifestyle.

Believed to date back to the 16th Century, Hempland Cottage has undergone a significant programme of extensive renovations both inside and out, sympathetically restoring stunning character features whilst adding a stylish modern finish to compliment the charm which has been retained. Stepping into a welcoming entrance porch, the spacious kitchen/dining room leads from here. Wonderfully finished to elude Farmhouse style tones, the bespoke handmade kitchen cabinets are utterly charming in design, topped with rustic slabs of solid Oak which perfectly compliment the butler style sink and Pamment tiled flooring. With space to dine and entertain whilst enjoying some of the enviable garden views, the vaulted garden room leads from here through a contemporary glass extension, one of the many examples where traditional features are beautifully designed to contrast alongside modern elements. Offering panoramic views of the landscape beyond, the vaulted garden room is one of our favourite spaces, whilst modern in age this room has been expertly crafted to blend in with the cottage, finished with Pamment floor tiles and solid oak window frames, the double set of French doors allow a wonderful indoor-outdoor flow to the garden terrace in addition to being a wonderful place to recline and enjoy the beautiful view throughout the seasons. Another modern addition is the vaulted utility area that joins the kitchen to the ground floor bathroom, an essential area for country living. The ground floor bath and shower room is simply stunning, fitted with a large walk-in shower unit and period style slipper bath, the stylish finishing touches from the taps to the vintage hand wash basin mounted upon a Singer table base really emphasise the care and attention which to which this home has been finished to. The sitting room also leads from the kitchen, whilst a spacious room the grand Inglenook fireplace adds a distinctive cosy feel to this space and perfectly compliments the reclaimed brick flooring and exposed beams which are full of history and charm. The study leads from here which is opposite the small hallway which leads to the adjacent snug, another deeply cosy room and an ideal place to get away from it all whilst enjoying another stunning Inglenook fireplace complete with log-burning stove. The landing is another special room, the vast vaulted ceiling allows you to visibly enjoy the stunning wooden structure of this historic home by the aged silvered oak beams. Whilst the ground floor accommodation benefits from under-floor heating, the first floor has been fitted with the most beautiful ornate cast iron radiators to which the first is evident on the landing, another stylish and thoughtful addition by the current vendors. The bathroom leads from here, as stylish as the ground floor suite, fitted with a free-standing period style bath, the hand wash basin is again a stunning feature in itself perfectly positioned opposite the internal Mullion window, another period feature painstakingly preserved. Bedroom two leads from the landing next to the bathroom, a spacious double room with exposed wooden flooring which highlights another ornate radiator with views over the acreage to the rear. Bedroom three leads from here, again with exposed wooden flooring in addition to the vast exposed brick chimney breast which was re-instated new from the ground in 2014, another insight into the catalogue of comprehensive renovations carried out on the property. Bedroom one leads to the opposite side of the landing, a stunning double room which has retained another charming Mullion window which offers more of those enviable rear garden views.


The Barn is another example of a stunning renovation, thoughtfully converted with style and modern necessities such as underfloor heating throughout, at the forefront of the design in addition to the retention of character and charm. Currently let out as a successful holiday home, enjoying a return of approximately £30,000 p.a, the barn serves as a fantastic versatile space ideal to suit those looking for an annexe or separate dwelling in addition to its current purpose. Offering a beautiful vaulted open plan living space, fitted with a stylish modern kitchen complete with appliances, the charming log-burning stove is perfectly set next to the French doors which lead out to the private terrace and garden which The Barn enjoys. The master suite leads from the open plan living space, complete with another sensational en-suite bath and shower room. Fitted with a free-standing William & Holland Copper bath and large walk-in shower unit, this is a real show stopping suite.


Outside, the driveway to the side of the property sweeps past the cottage and extends towards the barn and allows space to park several vehicles off-road. Leading through the five-bar gate into the gardens, a beautiful wild cottage style garden surrounds the terrace which covers the rear of the property, full of typically English wildflowers, this is a haven for local nature and wildlife. Extending down the garden which runs adjacent to The Barn's Garden, in amongst a number of Apple trees, the lawn is littered with circular areas of continued wildflower gardens, beautiful for the bees!! A small stream provides a lovely natural feature further down which is accessed over by a small quaint bridge into the next area of garden which is currently home to small herd of Sheep and a family of Chickens, ideal for those who equally enjoy their own small holding. The land here extends to the rear boundary and then east across the rear boundaries of the neighbouring properties and extending to a private lane from the main street via a white five bar gate
