Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set well back behind the twelve lime trees (from where these pretty cottages obtained their unusual name) Number 15 was originally built as an estate worker's cottage in the early Victorian era and as such it naturally appears quite modest from the front. However on entering the cottage what immediately strikes you is its sense of space, with the double width opening from the reception room through to the kitchen/dining room all the living space flows together perfectly. The kitchen/breakfast room is large enough to comfortably seat a big family and friends, whilst the reception room faces south and enjoys ample natural light but, with the elegant parquet flooring and log burner, it is equally a room that will feel warm and snug in the winter. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the two at the front having been opened to their full height and with their exposed beams they really show off the property's age and character and this is further enhanced by the original bedroom fireplace. Two of the bedrooms are good doubles with the rear bedroom also having an en-suite shower room and there is a further family bathroom. Outside and to the rear of the kitchen what was once the coal store has been lovingly transformed to create the current owner's home office and library but, with its en-suite wet room, also doubles as a very useful guest annexe and bedroom four. Behind the annexe there is private parking for two cars as well as a garage and then through the hedged archway to the rear garden is yet a further surprise. The top of the garden has been laid out for horticulture with its neat rows of raised beds, there is then a lawned mini orchard that in turn leads you to the studio. The studio is fully insulated with a discreet kitchenet, a central log burner and full width bifold doors taking you out to the expansive decked terrace that is wholly private, overlooks the fields beyond and is simply the perfect spot to unwind and watch the sun go down over the hares, harriers, buzzards, barn owls, roe deer, the wheeling swifts, martins and swallows and the amazing chevrons of greylag geese. A nature lover's paradise.
