Situated on an extraordinary plot of about 2 acres is this characterful and attractively presented family home in a very private and peaceful setting.


This very charming detached home dates back to 1910 and enjoys a very private, tranquil setting tucked down a private road shared by just one other house. The property is set within delightful grounds of about 2 acres and offers a range of outbuildings, including a self-contained studio/annexe which could be a great option for an au pair or independent children living at home. West Cottage has a number of character features, including leaded windows, parquet flooring and attractive wooden doors, and it has been modernised internally to create a stylish and bright family home. The kitchen, with its Rangemaster stove and farmhouse-style cabinetry with wood work surfaces is a particular highlight, and the open plan living space makes the house ideal for entertaining.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises an entrance hall, good-size sitting room with feature fireplace and an open plan kitchen/dining room with adjoining utility room and cloakroom/WC. Upstairs there are four good-size bedrooms: one has an en suite shower room, another has access to a balcony overlooking the rear garden, and the remaining two are spacious and share a family bath/shower room. There is also a study which could be used as a smaller fifth bedroom if needed.

West Cottage is set within grounds of about two acres and is situated in a very secluded setting behind a gated driveway, with mature trees around the boundary. There’s plenty of parking and a number of outbuildings, including a detached garage with first floor studio, a workshop, studio and stables. To the rear there is a lovely paved terrace, which has flowerbeds and raised planters, a pergola and space for garden furniture.

The lawned gardens are extensive and could be fenced for use for grazing, with the double stable block able to accommodate two ponies or other livestock. There is excellent access to bridleways locally providing good outriding, making the property suitable for equestrian use if required.
