Description

This a wonderful opportunity to acquire a historic grade II listed property on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Cowden TN8. Originally built in the 15th century, this period home displays a wealth of character features that you would expect from a house of this era.

These include wonderful exposed beams, a large Inglenook fireplace, flagstone flooring, and many more. From the moment you enter the property, it is clear that this has been a well-loved home for generations and one that has many stories to tell. The automatic gates lead to the driveway that provides parking for many cars. A red-brick path leads to the front door and to the side gardens.

Internally the property has a great-sized sitting room with an inviting Inglenook fireplace and windows that overlook the gardens.

The layout, is extremely flexible, allowing for a well-proportioned family house plus a potential annexe or different, grander layouts without the annexe perfect for entertaining larger dinner parties and a secluded home office or even an additional bedroom if so desired.

The country-style kitchen/breakfast room with oil-fired Aga has an oak-framed, conservatory-style room off it which offers a potential breakfast area or the grand boot room it is currently used for after those long country walks. A utility room completes a circular layout downstairs. On the first floor are four bedrooms with the principal suite benefitting from an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. There is also a family bathroom and a ladder for ‘step-in’ loft access.

Outside is a secluded garden that includes a courtyard with a log store and a brick-built store room. These form part of the planning to create a great-sized kitchen/diner and more that would wrap around the courtyard. Please see the planning notice reference in the Platform note within the description below for further details and the additional images supplied. The main garden envelops the house and has an orchard and a plethora of mixed shrubs and trees together with fruit cages for those interested in growing their own produce. The external area is a little under 1/2 an acre.
