Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A well-presented and recently extended period cottage dating from the 19th century in a pretty, sought-after village. The south-facing and private garden lies on one side and to the rear of the cottage and is bounded by a mixture of stone walling and close-boarded fencing. EPC: E.

Briars Cottage is a detached 2 storey property built of
local Hamstone under a Roman clay tiled roof. It has been occupied by the present owners for the past 13 years and during their tenure the property has been almost completely renovated, including the installation of new windows, kitchen and bathrooms. The cottage has great character and has retained many of its period features. The most recent extension saw the reorientation of the ground floor layout to optimise the available space and the creation of the kitchen/dining room with the master bedroom suite above. On the ground floor the front door opens to the L-shaped kitchen/dining room, which has a tiled floor, windows on 2 sides including French windows to the garden and is fitted with a range of floor and wall-mounted units, Belfast sink and
oak/granite work surfaces. A door leads through to the
family room/study, which has a window seat, beam and
fireplace with a doorway leading through to the sitting room, which also has a window seat and a fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove and French windows opening out on to the terrace. A staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor galleried landing, with doors off to the master bedroom with adjacent, walk-through dressing room and en-suite bathroom, further double bedroom, a small single bedroom and the family shower room.
The property is set back off a quiet village lane and looks out towards other residential properties and the surrounding countryside.
