An extremely well presented and flexible classic country cottage lying in the heart of this popular village with private rear garden. THE PROPERTY The Thatches enjoys a tranquil position fronting onto Park Lane and offers everything one looks for in a Grade II Listed country cottage and more. The original part dates back to the 18th century and whilst formerly three cottages, in the past they have been amalgamated. The cottage is presented in excellent condition, yet retains its period charm with beamed ceilings and Inglenook fireplaces. In more recent times the cottage has been sympathetically extended to the side and rear to create a potential independent annexe, if one required, along with garage with gravelled parking to the front for three vehicles. Complementing the flexible accommodation is the private and attractive garden that lies to the rear and features paved seating and dining areas. A viewing will be essential to fully appreciate its charm and the lifestyle opportunities on offer. THE ACCOMMODATION The part glazed front door opens into an oak floored reception hall with shower room lying off, doubling up as a cloakroom and serving the guest bedroom with French doors onto the rear garden. The sitting room benefits from a wonderful position to the rear of the cottage with bi-folding doors opening onto a seating terrace, looking down the garden. A stone fireplace houses the coal effect gas fire with fitted cupboards and display shelving in one corner. The kitchen/breakfast room lies in the heart of the cottage with Shaker base units and extensive area of granite work surfaces. Appliances include Rangemaster Range cooker with five ring gas hob and warming plate, Neff combination oven/ microwave, dishwasher and separate fridge and freezer. Double doors from the breakfast area opens onto a paved entertaining terrace. The utility room has built-in units and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. Running along the front of the cottage is the dining room and family room, both benefitting from a dual aspect, with stone Inglenook fireplaces and beamed ceilings. The family room has a cosy feel with a Clearview woodburner lying within a brick surround. The rear hall is oak floored with study to the rear and stairs gently rising to the beamed landing, allowing access to the two double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, single bedroom and family bathroom. Part of the landing is currently used as a dressing area, with the main bedroom having fitted wardrobes. OUTSIDE Lying to the south of the cottage is a gravelled parking area with double doors providing access to the garage. An extensive area of terracing runs along the rear of the original cottage providing an ideal entertaining area edged by mature borders, with greenhouse and cold frames in the corner. A brick path with pergola allows access to the main garden with seating area strategically positioned to enjoy views down the west facing garden. Clipped lawns are edged by well stocked herbaceous borders with the garden divided by clipped hedges to create rooms. Mature trees including silver birch and willow grace the boundaries with composting area at the far end. In the middle are raised vegetable beds with summerhouse and wooden garden shed lying behind the garage. LOCATION Paulerspury has excellent village facilities including a pub, restaurant, service station with mini-market, church, excellent primary school, doctors surgery, village hall and recreation ground. The village is within easy reach of Milton Keynes with its mainline railway station (London Euston 35 minutes), leisure facilities, theatre and shopping centre.
