THE PROPERTY

A delightful detached 17th century family home in an idyllic and private location set amongst splendid countryside with a good holding a land (approximately 4 acres). First glimpses of Spring Cottage are most impressive with its pretty thatched and slate roof and attractive faade. The property lies at the end of a no through lane and occupies a truly fabulous secluded position amongst its own beautiful gardens and grounds. Believed to date back to the 17th century, the property has undergone a fastidious program of works by the present owners and is now presented to the highest possible specifications having been cleverly designed to cater for most family needs. Of particular note is the fantastic open plan family kitchen and dining area with sliding doors which fully open out to expose the wonderful garden and grounds. Just below the kitchen is yet another surprise, incorporating a large cellar which has been fully tanked and is ideal for storage of wine with plenty of room for storing anything further. Throughout the entire property there is a real sense of charm, space and light with wonderful engineered oak flooring to much of the ground floor and good ceiling heights. Alongside the kitchen is a large sitting room with a wood burning stove and a study which would also make a very good playroom or downstairs bedroom. On the first floor there is lovely master bedroom suite with views across the delightful gardens, an en suite shower room and substantial dressing room, plus two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The garden and grounds are truly fabulous and a particular feature of the property, with a good sized level lawn to one side and a gently sloping meadow with a number of specimen trees. There is a large vegetable garden with raised beds, fruit cage and a 10 metre Keda greenhouse. To the other side of the lawn is a further area of land amounting to two acres which not only provides an opportunity for fruit trees or livestock but guarantees privacy. The garden and grounds can easily be described as a wildlife utopia and are very safe for children and animals. Also worth mentioning is the double garage and store, a large tool shed and plenty of parking for numerous vehicles.
