Full description

Brimming with character and charm, this pretty two-bedroom, split level detached cottage with good sized lounge, two bathrooms, and driveway parking for numerous cars, a detached single garage and delightful gardens also enjoys open rural views.

Sheltered by an open porch having a slate tiled roof, the composite front door with opaque glass insert opens into the hallway. A window to the side allows natural light to filter through and highlight the exposed brick wall opposite and the slate tiled floor.

An opening gives way into the dual aspect breakfast kitchen with ceramic tiled flooring and which enjoys enviable views over adjoining farmland and grazing paddocks and a further composite door to the side with a leaded glass insert. The extensive range of ivory coloured Shaker style wall and base units include drawer banks, basket storage, wine racks and have wall tiled splash areas between. Inset spotlights draw attention to the black starlight granite work surfaces which have an inset one and a half bowl single drainer enamel sink unit with a swan neck mixer tap over and a Hotpoint four-ring induction hob with canopy extractor fan over and a matching electric oven and grill beneath. There is space for a larder fridge freezer, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and a generous space for a dining table and chairs.

Stepping up from the hall, a tongue and groove latch door opens into the comfortable lounge with a semi-vaulted ceiling and bow window to the side.  The true focal point of the room is the exposed brick fire surround with raised hearth and timber mantle which enfolds a multi-fuel burning stove, supplemented by a radiator for chillier evenings, and having a television point alongside. 

From the lounge, the master bedroom, with a feature exposed wall beam, has a window to the side and a central pendant light.  A range of wardrobes are fitted to one wall and there is ample space for further storage units.  An opening takes you into the spacious and partially tiled en suite with coordinating floor tiles.  The three-piece white suite comprises a corner shower cubicle, low flush w.c. and a vanity mounted white enamel basin with mono-bloc tap and illuminated mirror over. There is a shaver point and, to the side, a linen cupboard housing the Vaillant gas central heating boiler. 

Again, from the lounge, two steps down give way into the inner hall with a circular leaded window to the side and tiled flooring with electric under-floor heating and which runs through into the dual aspect second bedroom, conservatory and the bathroom. 

A latch door gives way into bedroom two which has a window to the side and a circular window to the conservatory.  A double wardrobe and side cabinet of shelves are fitted to one wall and the room widens allowing for bed-space with a television point opposite and an exposed beam highlighted by the two pendant lights. 

Steps rise to the uPVC lichen green conservatory with tinted roof glass, double doors opening to the west facing rear garden and slate effect floor tiling over the electric heating.  In addition, there are ample electric points and a central pendant light for evenings. 

Completing the accommodation, the bathroom with under-floor heating and mostly tiled walls, has an opaque window to the side.  The three-piece white suite comprises a corner spa bath with moulded seat and a hand shower, a high level w.c. and a vanity set porcelain wash basin with mixer taps whilst a wall mounted panel radiator warms the room.

The Cottage is bordered by copper beech and sycamore hedging, has a front lawn with corner planting area and is approached via a concrete driveway to one side which provides gated parking for several cars and leads to the single detached garage with electronically controlled up and over door, power and light.  Cobble sett pathways also give way to the garden areas which are bordered by shrubs and summer planting. 

The west facing sun-trap and totally secluded rear garden has a sleeper-edged lawn with raised flower borders.  A step-up takes you to paved al fresco dining and barbecue area with ample space for table and chairs and a superb spot to enjoy the setting sun.  To one side is a further lawn with herbaceous border planting and to the other is a splendid raised Koi pond with waterfall feature and slate-chipped seating space alongside.  There is also a prettily painted arbour – perfect for lazy afternoons with a good book – an outside tap for convenience and the log storage area is neatly tucked away.
