Cross End Cottage is a Grade II Listed home set in a village end of Wavendon amongst similar period homes. Located on the corner of the lane, the cottage benefits from a delightful garden with areas of lawns, established borders and pathway leading to the garage and tennis court. This interesting historical cottage retains many of its original features including inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers, quarry tiled flooring and cottage windows. The property has been extended with a clay tiled roof to the rear to create a blend of old and new for today's living. The cottage offers four reception rooms, kitchen and breakfast room and utility on the ground floor and the majority are dual aspect which provides lots of light. You enter the property into a large hall or family room with an inglenook which then leads to the main sitting room which again has a feature fireplace. Two further reception rooms comprise a dining room and a cosy snug with log burning stove is a peaceful every day room to watch TV in etc. Set at the rear is the ''farmhouse' style kitchen which has a breakfast area and double door leading to the garden. The kitchen itself has an electric AGA, range of units with butler sink and a useful shelved pantry. A utility room and guest cloakroom complete the ground floor. Upstairs you are greeted via a very good size landing which has a study area if required and two particularly good size linen cupboards. In the original part of the cottage there are three double bedrooms with the master having an en suite bathroom with a roll top bath and twin wash hand basins. Bedrooms four and five plus a bathroom and separate wc are in the extension and the bedrooms have an interconnecting door so could be used as a large bedroom or a bedroom with a dressing room.
