Description

England’s cottage a very picturesque property full of charm and character and is set within beautiful grounds. The original house dates back to the early part of the 19th century where it was a shepherd’s cottage for the local manor. Over the years the cottage has been extended a number of times to provide a delightful home. The overall accommodation is both flexible and well-proportioned and as you would expect of a property of this age it also retains many fine original features.

The property would ideally suit a keen car collector or enthusiast with its two double garages and a workshop. There is also a separately accessed home office attached to the garages. Subject to the relevant planning application and approval these could also be converted to an annexe, gym or studio.

The accommodation overlooks the magnificent gardens and a central courtyard with feature water fountain and seating area. From the L-shaped hallway there is a dual aspect sitting room, fitted kitchen, utility room, a dining room and a family room that leads into the conservatory.

On the first floor are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, one being en suite.

The grounds are accessed via an electronic five bar gate and wrap around the property. There is an expanse of immaculate lawn area as well as numerous herbaceous borders, rose and shrub beds and mature trees including an orchard of apples and plums. At the rear of the garaging is a separate kitchen garden with numerous box-hedged bordered vegetable beds, an asparagus bed, soft-fruit cages and a feature arched walkway of apples and pears, leading to a private terrace seating area. There are also three garden storage sheds and a greenhouse.
