Property details

A rare opportunity to purchase a detached 5/6-bedroom cottage situated on a generous plot with a small paddock, a purpose-built garden office, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and spacious reception rooms. Dating back to 1860 the cottage has been sympathetically restored and thoughtfully extended, creating a beautiful family home with flexible living space and character on the outskirts of a popular rural village.

The cottage offers well-designed accommodation over 2 floors. Upon entering, you will find an entrance porch, a sitting room with flagstone flooring, exposed beams, and a stone fireplace. The flagstone flooring extends to the dining room, which features a wood-burning stove and double doors leading to the large open-plan kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is equipped with grey units, finished with granite worktops and an island, as well as a sitting area with views over the gardens and pool through a wall of glazed bi-fold doors. Further, along the hall, there is a utility room with access to a Jack & Jill wet room with WC, which is also accessible from a further reception room currently used as a ground floor guest bedroom.

Upstairs, the main bedroom is accessed via a dressing area with ample fitted wardrobes. The room boasts plenty of windows to admire the views and features a freestanding bath with a cleverly concealed sink and WC. There are also 4 other double bedrooms, a small nursery/study, a modern bathroom with a slipper bath, and a further shower room at the end of the landing.

Outside, there is a large patio, creating a perfect area for alfresco dining and enjoying a swim in the outdoor heated pool. A large lawned area with a gate leads to the paddock of approximately ¼ of an acre. In the corner of the garden, there is a purpose-built insulated office/gym space, ideal for those working from home.

To the front, secure double gates open to a large, gravelled driveway with ample parking for 6-plus cars and a useful brick outbuilding.
