General information A charming Grade II listed semi-detached cottage situated in a rural position with idyllic views in grounds of approximately 0.7 of an acre.
This beautifully presented home is steeped in history and has an original granary, currently used as an office/dining room, off road parking and impressive landscaped gardens complete with swimming pool.
Believed to date back to the 15th and 16th century, the cottage is of timber-framed construction with considerable remains of the original studwork with a central purlin roof. The granary, positioned to the rear of the property, is of 16th century origin with original tie-beams and flat-laid common rafters, pegged at the ridge. The property offers exposed timbers and characterful features throughout with stunning views over the surrounding countryside and gardens.
A welcoming entrance hall gives access to all the ground floor accommodation including a spacious living room with triple aspect and open brick hearth fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a range of bespoke units with inset double butler sink and integrated appliances including an AGA with brick surround.
To the rear of the entrance hall is another door to the sun terrace, a cupboard and the family bathroom, partially tiled with wooden panelling, free standing bathtub, WC and wash hand basin.
To the first floor are three spacious bedrooms, each with impressive, raised ceilings, built in storage and elevated views over the beautiful gardens.
The outside A private road leads to the driveway which provides parking and access to the garage. There is access to the side of the house to the beautifully landscaped gardens that wrap around the property from the front to the rear and offer complete privacy.
The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with a variety of mature trees and is surrounded by breath-taking arable views over the valley beyond. The garden has been cleverly landscaped for ease of maintenance whilst providing an abundance of colour and different areas of interest. There is a large alfresco dining terrace in addition to multiple seating areas, each capturing the sun at different times of the day that also provide exceptional space for entertaining. The garden is bordered by mature shrubs, trees and delightful flowers creating a high level of seclusion. There is a summer house with electricity and phone line connection in addition to storage sheds. To the rear of the garden is the tiled roman shaped, heated swimming pool and there are two traditional wooden changing rooms.
