Description

May Cottage was originally built in the late 1930s and has been gradually extended over the years to create a large and lovely family home.

Accessed along a country lane May Cottage feels very rural and peaceful, yet is less than a mile and a half from the village of Sandridge.

Set behind a wooden gate leading onto a gravel driveway, the house has spectacular views across the neighboring fields and ‘as far as the eye can see’.

Arranged over two floors, May Cottage has been designed to make the most of not only the unrivalled views, but also the light. On the ground floor there is a magnificent sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and French doors to the garden; perfect for entertaining. Set at one end of the sitting room there is a useful studio.

The central dining hall leads through to a comprehensively fitted kitchen with two ovens and a small breakfast bar. There is a large utility room with wine store and cloakroom. A stunning glass dining/garden room overlooks the grounds and countryside on three sides.

Upstairs, there is the master bedroom with a large en suite bathroom. There are three other bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The gardens are quite outstanding with their riot of colour and elegant design. With hedges and mature trees framing the views, it is a perfect place to while away the hours.

There is a detached garage adjacent to the house, which has been converted to provide garaging and a separate guest room/studio.

There is also another large garage located towards the end of the gardens with its own gated access from the lane.
