"The Cottage" is a detached two storey property located along a quiet lane serving just a small number of dwellings and having an open outlook to the both the front and the rear. There is no chain, so a quick completion is available.
The property has been considerably extended over the years and now offers in excess of 2,800 square feet with many character features combined with some modern finishes.
In total, the plot amounts to just over an acre (sts) to include a paddock area and ample parking/storage areas to both sides. There is a large detached outbuilding, perfect for an office/store, and there are also varying other outbuildings and sheds, including a log cabin with a sauna.
The utility room leads to the breakfast room which in turn offers access to the family room and the kitchen.
The kitchen has been modernised and includes a breakfast bar, granite worktops and a large array of units. An inner hallway with feature fireplace leads to a separate dining room and a very large living room with an open fire.
The first floor accommodation includes five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.
The Cottage has a part thatched (renewed in Spring 2018) and part tiled roof, with whitewashed rendered elevations.
Heating is provided by an oil to radiator system and the property drains to a septic tank.
To the rear of the property there are mature gardens, with a patio area, a pergola and a hot tub set around an area of decking. There are no immediate neighbours, so the garden enjoys complete privacy. We also understand the property has been granted planning permission for a double garage with office over.
