Priory Cottage is a charming detached Grade II listed country residence set in an idyllic, peaceful position surrounded by its own gardens and grounds which amount to some 5.77 acres. The original, two storey Chartist cottage was constructed in around 1860 and has large barn conversions attached. The result is a unique property ideal for the larger family, offering a wide range of first class accommodation including six bedrooms, five bathrooms and multiple reception rooms. The property demonstrates a skilful fusion of contemporary design and original features which can be seen throughout the property and include exposed bricks and woodwork, and oak, flagstone and tiled floors. Multiple full length windows throughout the property let in lots of light and pitched ceilings throughout create an airy feel. Several rooms overlook the beautiful grounds and there are doors to outside from many rooms encouraging an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The current owners have lovingly maintained the property, which enjoys a rare feeling of peace and seclusion, and it is ready to move into and enjoy straight away.

At the heart of the house is a superb, very spacious Kitchen with a beautiful reclaimed tiled floor and a comprehensive range of bespoke oak units with granite worktops which were fitted in around 2009, and incorporate a large central island, four oven LPG fired Aga set in a brick recess, and dishwasher. The Utility Room off has modern gloss white units with granite worktops, a ceramic sink, boiler, space for washing machine and fridge freezer and a door to outside. From the kitchen the tiled floor continues into the Breakfast Room which has two walls of full length windows letting in lots of light and doors leading to the brick paved terrace outside. This stunning room has a pitched ceiling with skylights and exposed beams and woodwork which combine wonderfully with the contemporary lighting. This room leads into the more formal Dining Hall which has a wooden floor and again boasts a pitched ceiling, exposed beams and brickwork, and has a wall of windows overlooking the grounds. A further excellent space for entertaining guests is a generously proportioned, versatile Family Room having a pitched ceiling with exposed beams, an original wooden floor and featuring a small original stained glass window, a handsome oak bar, wood burner and two cupboards along with wood panelled walls.

A landing leads down a decorative spiral staircase to a Snug which has a lovely flagstone floor, a wood burner set in a recess, exposed brickwork, door to outside and a door into the Garden Room which is a wonderfully light room with a wall of windows to both sides and doors to both aspects, one of which leads to a Courtyard which is ideally situated for catching the afternoon sun.
