Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Keeps Cottage was built around 1680 and originally had a thatched roof in keeping with the architecture of the time. Believed to be the old village bakery there is still evidence of the old bread oven hidden away in the cottage.
Nestled in around 0.75 acre plot including a mature, well-kept garden the property looks out to open farmland.

Keeps Cottage offers a traditional cottage layout with four, first floor bedrooms; three of which are doubles and one en-suite, family bathroom and downstairs a kitchen with breakfast area and access to rear garden, living room with original inglenook fireplace, separate dining room with wood-burning stove, study/office, ground floor WC and utility area, additional entrance vestibule.

On entering the property you will find the utility, WC and study/office. Onto the country-style kitchen which overlooks the mature garden at the back. There is a pretty raised breakfast area, ample worktop space, cooker, hob, space for a dishwasher, high and low level units. From the heart of the home you move to the dining room which has original exposed beams and a wood-burning stove. This is a warm and welcoming room and easily accommodates a large dining table to seat 10-12 guests.

The main living room is the next room to see and with double doors opening onto the rear garden and patio area it really is a lovely space. Warm and cosy in the winter with an enormous inglenook fireplace and cool and airy in the summer. The room is simultaneously generous and cosy with windows to the front in addition to the doors to the rear. There is plenty of room for a couple of sofas and additional seating. The inglenook fireplace is the focal point of the room and in the winter months you won't want to be anywhere else! In summer you open those double doors and look out onto the beautiful garden with those views across the Downs. It doesn't get much better than that.

The passageway from the living room takes you past the old bread oven and back to the kitchen and stairs to the first floor. There is also a part-finished second entrance area and room initially designed to be a shower room. This could easily be a boot-room which then leads straight into the main hallway.
Up on the first floor where the age and design of the house is visible in every room, there are 4 bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom.
Storage is situated in the landing and two of the bedrooms.
Exposed beams, traditional craftsmanship and sympathetic decor engulfs you in history in this very impressive house.


The double garage includes a self-contained flat above, which is fully insulated,glazed and equipped for use as a rental, teen-den or grannexe! So - two properties for the price of one!

Keeps is located at the end of a gravel lane just off the B4000 in Woodlands St Mary. The nearest neighbours are along the lane but no properties are directly in view of Keeps.

Keeps has easy access to the M4 but its situation is unique and remote.
