General information Guide price of £800,000 - £825,000. The property is believed to date back to the 16th Century with later alterations in the 19th Century where the house was adapted to form two cottages, and then later re-combined to form one dwelling with more recent additions. The later additions help to provide a pleasing layout providing flexible accommodation including a vaulted ceiling kitchen and additional bathroom. The cottage is of timber framed construction with plastered elevations and thatched roofing.

An entrance porch leads into the principal reception room and one is instantly impressed by the charm and character throughout offering exposed timbers, french doors to the terrace and an inglenook fireplace. From here a concealed staircase rises to the guest bedroom. The study is positioned at the end of the home with an opening through to the sitting room which has elevated ceilings, views and access into the garden and an open fireplace. An impressive feature of the dining room is an additional inglenook fireplace with large bressummer and brick hearth surround. This generous room offers ample space for dining furniture with a tiled floor and separate access into the living room. An inner hallway provides access to the remaining ground floor accommodation including a bathroom, cloakroom and two separate staircases rise to the remaining bedrooms. The utility room offers a range of storage units that incorporates a sink and allows space for all the necessary utility appliances together with access to the outside. The magnificent, vaulted ceiling kitchen/ breakfast room is filled with light and boasts a triple aspect offering gorgeous views of the garden and wildlife haven beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of wooden bespoke units with integrated appliances including fridge, dishwasher and there is a range cooker.

To the first floors, all bedrooms are of generous proportions especially that of bedroom one which benefits from a range of built-in wardrobes and ensuite facilities comprising a 'P' shaped bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.

Outside The property is approached off a single lane on to the driveway which provides parking in front of the detached garage with double doors, storage space and Studio to the rear. There is a laid to lawn front garden and a side access leads to the rear garden which commences with a sun terrace that links the house to the studio/garage. The studio itself provides the perfect 'work from home' space with plumbing and a staircase leads to a generous loft space which offers exciting onward potential (subject to the necessary planning consents). The terrace incorporates a small pond and plenty of room for garden furniture providing idyllic entertaining space. The remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with a variety of typically English trees, plants, and flowers. At the foot of the garden is a wooden summer house with double doors overlooking the gorgeous views of the countryside and valley beyond which provides a haven for wildlife.
