A STUNNING GRADE II LISTED PERIOD FAMILY HOME WITH DELIGHTFUL GARDENS IN THE HEART OF THIS CHARMING RURAL VILLAGE ....... Mays Cottage is an absolutely charming Grade II listed detached period property of great style and character, dating we are advised, from the 17th century. There are many classic hallmarks, including exposed oak beams, timbers and doors and a particularly fine Inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. The property has been enlarged over subsequent years and tastefully modernised, including a recent two storey extension, by the current owners, to provide fantastic living space. The accommodation can be identified by the floorplan, and some of noteworthy features include a substantial open plan kitchen/dining room, which flows through to the beautiful family room - part of the recent extension. The sitting room is the original part of Mays Cottage and is a charming room with a centerpiece Inglenook fireplace. The second bedroom also forming part of the extension, could make a lovely master bedroom with fine views over the gardens. Both of the bathroom suites have been luxuriously re-fitted in recent years. The current owners have put great detail and consideration into all of the improvements at Mays Cottage and this includes bespoke locally made oak windows to all of the extension, which includes the patio doors and back door. The gardens are an absolute delight and enhance the whole setting of Mays Cottage, having been well-tended to over many years. There is a path that meanders down to the raised terrace with a heated outdoor swimming pool, which has been upgraded in recent years and this area offers a good degree of seclusion. There is a detached studio with bathroom and new central heating system which could make excellent guest accommodation. There is a gravel driveway to the front providing parking and leading to the detached brick-built garage with a utility room behind. In all, the grounds extend to about 0.3 of an acre.
