A detached late 17th century cottage with five bedrooms and five reception rooms, on a wonderful westerly facing mature tree lined plot in excess of two acres, in this desirable village.
The pretty eyebrow thatch and peg tile property offers scope for improvement, but the proportions of the rooms are favourable and there is a decent internal square footage of over 2600. The successful buyer will require some vision as the listed cottage is vacant but the character does shine throughout.
The front door leads to a generous entrance hall with stone fireplace, a sitting room to the left, also has a stone fireplace and ceiling beams. The dining room is to the right with the large kitchen breakfast room beyond. This has a change of style as it is in the later additional stone part of the building, which is late 18th century. There is an oak herringbone floor and brick fireplace on the far wall with plenty of light from two sizeable windows. The study is at the end of the property with a vaulted ceiling and stable door to the courtyard.
Sitting behind the dining room is a vast family room which has French doors to the terrace and garden. There is a door to the drive in this room with plenty of storage cupboards. Behind the sitting room is bedroom five, a bathroom and laundry room.
There are four double bedrooms on the first floor and a bathroom. The ceiling height is unexpectedly high with rooms showing beams, low cottage windows and a fireplace.
Outside the gated driveway will afford parking for six cars comfortably with potential for more and there is a block built oversized garage.
The mature garden is a key feature of the sale, it features a high degree of privacy and there is a small orchard half way down and vast lawn through the middle. It is divided into two main sections and drops away from the house to the brook at the far end and farmers’ fields beyond. The paddock, to the back of the plot, is post and rail fenced with a public footpath, the other side, providing access to the fields beyond which runs the length of the plot from the highway.
The heating is oil fired from a boiler installed late 2016. The electrics were upgraded with a new consumer unit May 2020. Thatch was new in 2006. Grade II Listed.
