DESCRIPTION A beautiful rustic stone cottage reputed to be one of the oldest family homes in the village, which has been sympathetically extended over recent years to offer a wonderfully versatile family home with a superb self contained two bedroom annexe.

Chew Cottage is situated on the eastern edge of Chew Magna in a quiet lane close to the village cricket ground. It enjoys one of the finest locations in the village away from any traffic and benefits from a slightly elevated position with views over surrounding countryside and the village church. The property is constructed of handsome local stone elevations under a glorious weathered tiled roof. The setting is quiet and peaceful and yet the centre of the Chew Magna village is only some five minutes walk away. In the past decade the property has undergone extensive refurbishment and renovation where the highest quality fixtures and fitments have been used.

Upon entering the property into the reception hallway, the abundance of character is immediately apparent, with its beautiful flagstone floor and exposed timber beams. Two superb reception rooms feature gorgeous inglenook fireplaces and dramatic oak beams, with the living room enjoying a pretty outlook over the private rear garden. The kitchen, which is situated to the rear of the property, links seamlessly with an impressive Oak framed dining/family room for less formal occasions. The garden can be directly accessed from the dining/family room via hardwood French doors. The kitchen itself is a sleek modern masterpiece featuring a range of matching wall and base units, along with a stunning central island unit, the kitchen features high quality appliances including dishwasher, coffee machine, micro oven and range cooker and its sharp design blends perfectly with the rustic charm of the original character. There is also a useful pantry/boot room and ground floor W.C

On the first floor are the four bedrooms, which are all wonderfully individual with the master bedroom being fitted with a large hand built wardrobe and also a smart en-suite bathroom. Completing the accommodation, in the main part of the house, is the family bathroom.

In addition to the main residence at Chew Cottage, and forming part of the original house is an adjoining two bedroom annexe complete with an area of private garden. This spacious addition is perfect for a dependent relative, air B & B or indeed a longer term let. From the annexe a hidden staircase rises to a large loft room which has been converted in the attic space and also links through to the guest bedroom via discreet door.

Completing the accommodation is a self contained office which is accessed from the outside of the property and has the benefit of a W.C/washroom and a large double garage with electric up and over doors.

Whilst the property is currently quite clearly arranged as two separate units the original doorways have been skilfully retained for any buyer wishing to combine the entire footprint back into one family home.

Outside, the property is blessed with a gorgeous mature garden, which flanks the house to three elevations. Within the garden are several mature specimen trees, fruit trees and well planted borders. Of particular note is an enchanting sunken dining area, perfect for al-fresco dining and evening soirees, along with a further stone terrace and space for children's outdoor play equipment. Taking advantage of the superb privacy our current vendors have also installed a luxurious Swim Spa with a retractable cover ideal for family recreation or relaxing after a hard week at work.

Chew Cottage is so much more than originally meets the eye, beyond the handsome facade, the property extends to offer a wonderfully balanced and adaptable family home with homeliness and comfort a top priority.
