Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A sweeping gravel driveway winds past the dry-stone walls and fields. Pull up to your detached garage or to the parking area aside. A paved pathway crosses the lawn and arrives at a striking entrance. Here, glazed double doors topped by a large feature window - echoed to the rear - flood the reception hallway with natural light, while heated travertine floor tiles welcome you inside. Throw off your coats and shoes and freshen up in the handy cloakroom. 

Discover a bright, generously sized sitting room where a natural stone fire surround creates a lovely focal point for friends and family to congregate, complemented by stylish wall up-lights. Slender windows frame the pretty front garden, while glazed double doors encourage you to bring drinks onto the terrace.

Back in the hallway, rear glazed doors link to the courtyard garden and across to Dairy Cottage. The heated flooring continues into a dining room with garden access and through into the contemporary breakfast kitchen, where a stable door makes it easy to enjoy meals in the sunny courtyard.

Illuminated by recessed downlights, the brand new kitchen features an excellent range of contemporary wrap-around wall and base cabinets housing an array of appliances with granite breakfast bar and worktops inset with a deep Butler sink for prepping veggies.

There's also a separate sink for washing up while admiring the delightful country views from the window above.  

Ascend the staircase to a first-floor landing connecting to three doubles where you will discover plentiful storage. The dual-aspect principal has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom. Next, two further double bedrooms feature built-in storage and en suite shower rooms.

Return to the impactful landing, which boasts double-height front and rear windows, before ascending a further staircase to the second floor. A contemporary shower room serves this floor, with rooflight windows offering verdant country views. Why not claim this upper level as a private floor suite, office space, or an epic teenager's retreat? 

The east-facing front garden is mainly lawn bordered by shrubbery and comes with a pleasant patio area to sit back and enjoy your views. The west-facing rear garden is a spacious blank canvas. 

The Dairy Cottage is the perfect home office in the making or ready-to-use accommodation for family members and guests.

To the front, there's an Indian Stone terrace and gravel area for sitting outside. Glazed folding doors invite you into an open plan kitchen living area, fitted with modern Shaker style cabinets incorporating integrated appliances and space to pop an undercounter appliance too. An exposed stone feature wall, quaint arched window, and a beautiful spiral staircase imbue the cottage with plenty of charm and character. Next, you'll discover two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a part-tiled three-piece bathroom. Locate a third bedroom with an en suite shower room and ample storage on the first floor.
