This delightful gem of a cottage is steeped in history and enjoys a plethora of period charm and character whilst maintaining excellent practicality for modern family living. The property has been sympathetically upgraded, extended and restored with an abundance of period features throughout including iron latch windows, feature panelled walls, and impressive fireplaces whilst benefiting from modern conveniences such as gas central heating, modern electrics and fitted open-plan modern kitchen with bi-fold doors. Whilst the integrity of the building remains, the ground floor has underfloor heating and flows much like a modern house with open-plan space and part glazed doorways taking you through to the sitting room and kitchen. There is also a utility and a bathroom to the ground floor. The first floor offers four bedrooms, the master with dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and built-in wardrobes. Bedroom two enjoys a southerly aspect with views over the valley, plus there is a modern family shower room. The landscaped gardens are a delight, whilst there is also a private gated driveway and a detached garage with opportunity for further extension with full planning permission granted by the current owners in August 2018. See planning reference: 18/P/3380/FUH | Two storey side extension and rebuilding of existing single storey garage.
Undoubtedly one of the big attractions to this property are the beautiful gardens to the rear which are extremely generous and have been landscaped to provide a patio area, an arbour separating the vegetable plots, a further seating area, large lawned areas and a part glazed summerhouse. The gardens are ideal for summer barbeques and family entertaining and can also be accessed from the gate to the side and through the utility room as well as from the kitchen/dining room via bi-fold doors. They are mainly enclosed with hedging but there are also low stone walls, and borders with many varieties of plants and shrubs along with mature trees. To the front and side there are double wooden gates that open on to the tarmacadam driveway with ample parking in front of the detached single garage with lighting and power, traditional double doors to the front, plus a window and courtesy door to the side.
