Full description

INSIDE…

An attractive chocolate box cottage which retains many period features, yet enjoys bright and light accommodation with ample head room throughout.

You enter the property via a porch and are welcomed into the entrance hall which has space for coats and boots. Off the hallway is a study, ideal for working at home or even a hobby or crafts room, and a separate cloakroom. To the right of the entrance hall is the well-proportioned dual aspect sitting room with its feature fireplace including bread oven and wood burner. The remaining reception rooms are to the left of the hallway.

The formal dining room boasts an impressive fireplace with wood burner, wood flooring and attractive ceiling beams, which highlight the age of the property.

Adjoining the dining room, the spacious farmhouse kitchen has been fitted with wooden cupboards, a smart granite worktop, an oil-fired Rayburn and a generous larder providing plenty of storage space. The room is also large enough for a family dining table and chairs. Off the kitchen via a stable door and with separate access to the front garden is the boot room.

Upstairs, the master bedroom, at the end of the hallway, is dual aspect with a fantastic outlook over the gardens and orchards beyond. Bedroom two is also of a good size and features fitted wardrobes and finally bedroom two is the smallest in size but plenty large enough to accommodate a double bed. In the middle is the family bathroom which is modern with a shower over the bath.

The property also boasts a separate one-bedroom studio/annexe which is modern and fitted with under floor heating throughout. The french doors open into the open-plan sitting/kitchen area with a bedroom and en suite to the rear. It is an ideal retreat for an array of hobbies and has scope for further potential such as bed and breakfast.

OUTSIDE…

As you approach the property, there is an area for parking with space for multiple cars and a gated entrance into the property grounds.

To the front, the beautifully landscaped garden faces south and is well stocked with a range of mature trees, shrubs and plants offering year round colour. A meandering path takes you to a well placed seating area to enjoy the sun and garden at different times of the day.

To the left of the cottage, there is a further lawn and a hard standing area with a smart animal and storage shelter with power, garden shed and access to the detached studio.

To the rear of the property, the current owners have developed an area of land into something rather special and separate from the front more formal garden. Backing onto the neighbouring apple orchards and benefiting from separate
road access, the land is neatly divided into sections and includes multiple vegetable beds, fruit trees, a polytunnel, a pig pen, a wildlife pond and a large outbuilding with power.
