DESCRIPTION:
Only the second time on the market in 100 years, this charming and characterful Grade II listed cottage has elevations of mellow brick under a clay tiled roof and is believed to date from 1585. The name derived from the glass industry which thrived on the site in medieval times. The accommodation is laid out over two floors with the ground floor consisting of an entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room with a lovely inglenook fireplace, separate triple aspect dining room, a kitchen with fitted units and LPG Aga and an adjoining living room/breakfast room. On the first floor there is a split staircase on one side leading to the master suite comprising a generous bedroom, walk-in wardrobe cupboard, dressing area and ensuite bathroom. The other staircase leads up to the second double bedroom which is also of a good size with built-in wardrobe cupboards and a second bathroom.

OUTSIDE:
The property includes a DETACHED BARN which provides guest accommodation with a sitting area with wood burning stove, shower room with separate w.c. and mezzanine sleeping area, There is also a large garage, log store/summerhouse and greenhouse both with power connected. The cottage sits neatly on its 8.5 acre plot which is surrounded by well maintained gardens enjoying rare and unusual trees and shrubs, good size areas of woodland plus a paddock. The Inner garden which is approximately 1 acre is fenced to be deer and rabbit proof. The grounds have been enjoyed by the current owners for the past 23 years and one of the rare features is being in ownership of the majority of what you see which remains unspoilt and abounds with wild flowers including cowslips and wild orchids. A stream fed pond with waterfall and lovely ancient woodland make this property a unique rural haven.
