General information

General information 2 Priory Cottages could be described as a 'hidden gem'. The front façade does not tell the whole story as this late 19th Century cottage has later additions to the rear that gives this cottage a unique sense of character. There is a lovely vaulted garden room that overlooks the gardens and an artist studio converted out of the double garage that provides a useful creative space, but, however, could form a variety of different uses.

The oil fired centrally heated accommodation briefly comprises a half glazed door leading into a rear lobby with brick floor, door to kitchen and a latch door with step down into a comfortable spacious lounge with views across the cottage gardens, woodgrain flooring and feature fireplace with tiled hearth and display shelving. Glazed double doors open into the garden room where the woodgrain floor continues from the lounge and French doors give way to the gardens. This is the perfect room to enjoy the gardens with vaulted ceiling and library style shelving framing the doors from the lounge. The kitchen diner has a range of wooden work surfaces that incorporate a sink, space for a range style oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, half vaulted ceiling with sky light provides natural lighting and an interesting feature. The handmade kitchen has a range of units above and below work surfaces incorporating open display shelving with basket storage, pantry cupboard, bespoke built in wine storage, spot lighting and space for a good sized table. Further latch door leads to the formal entrance with storm porch on the outside, recessed area provides excellent space for shelving and stairs rise to the first floor. Doors give way to the utility room/cloakroom with window to side aspect, work surface beneath incorporating a sink, space for washing machine, cupboard beneath, wc and tiling to walls. Study/hobby room with window to side and built in cupboard.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing with window to side aspect providing natural light and doors give way to three bedrooms. The master bedroom lies to the rear of the house and has a good sized window providing stunning views of the gardens and countryside beyond plus a range of built in wardrobes to one wall. The approach to the master bedroom is via a room currently used as a craft space but which could be considered more formally as a large dressing room. This is a good sized space with built in storage. Shower room with wc, wash handbasin, shower cubicle, wall mounted heated towel rail and part tiled walls.
