A CHARMING PICTURE POSTCARD PROPERTY IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH DELIGHTFUL GARDENS IN A QUIET IDYLLIC EDGE OF VILLAGE LOCATION.

Brakes Cottage is a most charming quintessential grade II listed thatched cottage, thought to date back in parts to 1485 and situated on the edge of a delightful rural village in an idyllic and quiet location. The current owners of seventeen years have maintained the property extremely well, creating inviting and comfortable living areas enriched with an abundance of character features. The thatch is in excellent condition having been completely re thatched in 2001 and the ridge more recently 3 years ago. Some areas of the cottage are still the original stone, straw and mud construction and that coupled with original beams, brace and latch doors, window seats and Inglenook fireplace create an enchanting family home with a lovely ambience. There are also newer additions to the property, the snug extension has been sympathetically created adding a rather lovely room with triple aspect windows and fireplace with woodburning stove and in 1996 the most delightful light and airy summer room was added to the rear of the property taking in the views of the fabulous garden and the rolling hills beyond. Outside is a good size well maintained garden, with scented rose beds, herb garden and separate vegetable plot with soft fruit cage. With two patio areas, one outside the garden room, easily accessible from the kitchen and a lovely sun trap and the other to the side of the garage in an elevated position ideal with catching the rising sun in the mornings and a good place for breakfast. The bottom of the garden backs onto fields with fantastic countryside views and there is a rather well placed bench to make the most of sunny evenings whilst enjoying a tipple of your choice.

HOME OFFICE SPACE
A large and fully insulated timber office with glazing and power is situated in the western side of the garden, ideal for those who need to work from home.
