Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Offering impressive views over the surrounding hills and countryside, this beautiful character home is the perfect retreat in the country. Situated in the desirable village of Whitwell, this property is located within an unmade road on the outskirts of the village and offers a superb opportunity to buyers wanting a home where they are able to admire a beautiful outlook from the comfort of their own living areas. Extended by the current owners, an impressive lounge has been created with an attractive exposed stone feature wall which gives a glimpse of the property's original structure and a large picture window with sliding doors creating the most impressive frame of the beautiful outlook on offer. There is an adjoining conservatory from which to admire the views, a study, utility room and ground floor bathroom. The original part of the house now offers a well equipped kitchen area, a separate dining area that links back into the lounge, and a ground floor double bedroom. The first floor has three double bedrooms, served by a first floor shower room and also offers access to the large first floor terrace, which is a wonderful spot to admire the beautiful outlook. The property still boasts a hayloft, part of the original home which now caters as a superb area for storage with a fixed ladder discreetly hidden within a large cupboard.

The property's extensive gardens border grassy paddocks which are predominantly used for horses and have agricultural restrictions. The current owners have sectioned the tiered gardens into defined areas with an orchard to the lower tier offering a range of fruit and nut trees, and a large productive vegetable growing area above. The rest of the garden has an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and flowers below the large patio area, for relaxing on a summers evening. In addition there is a delightful enclosed courtyard with greenhouse to the side of the home accessed from the kitchen. The driveway offers space for numerous vehicles and has been 'brick' paved, creating an attractive entrance to the home. For all buyers seeking a home with beautiful views within a delightful village community, this attractive detached cottage really will not disappoint.

What the Owner says:


We came here 15 years ago from another Whitwell paradise and have always enjoyed the panoramic countryside views and the never-ending parade of wildlife, especially the red squirrels cavorting in the trees and stealing peanuts from the bird-feeders.

But it’s not just the bucolic bliss; there is also a wonderful community on the doorstep focussed on the superb nearby White Horse Inn, the very active church and so much else.

However it is now approaching our time to go; our family have dispersed and Cinxia has outgrown us. We’ll miss her but never forget the happy times.
