Property Description

Full description

Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the charm of this renovated period cottage, with generous garden, set within a peaceful setting in highly sought-after village of Barnby Dun.Dating from the early 18th Century, this deceptively spacious cottage is well extended and has been renovated to a high standard by the present owners.

They have successfully retained the bulk of its period features, including an inglenook fireplace, various original timbers and doors, whilst incorporating contemporary kitchen and bathroom fittings entirely in keeping with this unique cottage. It has the benefit of energy saving double glazing, and a beautiful large garden.

The accommodation comprises entrance vestibule, spacious sitting room, open plan kitchen diner, two good sized double bedrooms, flexible study/nursery space, expansive galleried landing and family bathroom.With further scope for expansion, this cottage is not listed. The property includes the opportunity for off street parking, which has been pre-approved in writing by planners, and has space available for a loft conversion under permitted development.

FRONT EXTERIOR.
The front of the property is approached via a lovely enclosed garden which is laid mainly to lawn with a brick-built dwarf wall to the front boundary, and an access pathway leading to the entrance door. The garden includes eye catching flowerbeds, well stocked with established shrubs, wisteria, roses, lavenders and low maintenance self-seeding cottage flowers. If the new owners required off street parking, it is estimated that a driveway with space for two vehicles could be installed, and the current owners have pre-approval in writing from Doncaster Council for this development.

The façade of the cottage has been recently updated with K Rend cream coloured silicone render to eliminate maintenance. It has newly fitted sage green UPVC double glazing, with a coordinated solid wood front door.
