This unique 4-bedroom property was originally two cottages that formed part of the Haveringland Estate. We understand that the cottages were originally constructed in the early 1800s. The property is constructed of brick with pantile roof and some timber cladding and retains many internal period features, including an inglenook, exposed oak beams and some lovely architectural features to the walls. The property sits in a 0.3-acre (stms) plot within a peaceful rural location.
The property is entered through a glazed door into a spacious, partially glazed entrance hall. From the entrance hall double doors open through to an inner hallway which leads directly to the sitting room and dining room and the staircase to the first floor.
The sitting room is a fabulous room with a superb brick fireplace with original inglenook, pantile hearth and alcoves either side, with a multi fuel burner in the hearth. At the opposite end of the room there is a beautiful curved wall feature and an alcove. An original exposed beam across the centre of the ceiling and down each wall is a particularly lovely feature in this room and double aspect views through deep set windows is a further benefit. The dining room is spacious, has wood flooring and brick fireplace with fitted wall cabinet to one side. There are 2 deep set windows looking out to the front of the property.
From the dining room a door opens through to the kitchen. The kitchen sits in the centre of the property and has a range of fitted cabinets, breakfast bar and integrated dishwasher, double oven, ceramic hob and fridge. The kitchen enjoys a dual aspect, features herringbone pamments on the floor and leads through a glazed door to the garden room. Immediately to the right, there is access to a small conservatory, which overlooks the south facing rear garden.
The extension to the property comprises entrance hall, garden room, office, utility, cloakroom and games room. Leading off to the left of the entrance hall there are double doors opening into the garden room. This is a spacious room with timber ceiling and the roof lanterns make this room a particularly light and sunny spot to enjoy views over the rear garden. The garden room features exposed brickwork, pantiled flooring (presently carpeted) and French doors leading out on to the rear terrace. Leading off from the garden room there is an office with adjoining cloakroom and utility. The utility room has the benefit of fitted cabinets, worktop and sink and space for free standing appliances. There is a large games room that presently houses a full-sized snooker table and enjoys a dual aspect over the rear garden. This room has a timber ceiling with exposed beams and a wood burning stove. This extended section of the property offers flexible living and lends itself to further development into a self-contained annexe if desired.
Returning to the inner hallway, a staircase leads up to the first-floor accommodation. From the landing there is a spectacular architectural circular feature, which in addition to its aesthetic appeal, allows natural light through.
The master bedroom features an exposed original beam and a range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards and overlooks the front of the property. Between the master bedroom and the en suite there is an airing cupboard and convenient storage cupboard. The adjoining en suite comprises walk-in shower, wash hand basin and W.C. and overlooks the south facing rear garden.
Bedroom 2 benefits from a fitted cupboard and overlooks the front of the property. Bedroom 3 also benefits from a fitted cupboard, has loft access with retractable ladder and overlooks the front of the property. Bedroom 4 overlooks the rear of the property, has built-in cupboards and a custom-built study area.
The family bathroom is spacious and comprises walk-in shower, bath, wash hand basin, W.C. and a second loft access.
The property enjoys a lovely quiet rural location and has a particularly attractive approach. The property is approached through a 5-bar timber gate over a brick weave driveway, which becomes a gravelled drive leading down to a parking and turning area with car port. Either side of the driveway there are areas of lawn, interspersed with mature trees. Beyond the parking and turning area there is an east facing paved terrace, which is an ideal position to enjoy the morning sun. A small outbuilding adjoins the terrace and is attached to the property. This offers wonderful outdoor storage.
The front terrace leads round to the south facing rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders, specimen trees and overlooking the neighbouring woodland. There is a decked area, that due to its position, enjoys all-day sun. In addition, there is a paved terrace that adjoins the garden room and the small conservatory and a pedestrian gate leading through to a second car port at the front of the property. Leading off from the car port there is a boiler room and a workshop.
