THE PROPERTY

WITH A PLOT OF 0.22 OF AN ACRE, A DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE AND AN ATTRACTIVE 120FT GARDEN, THIS 5 BEDROOM PERIOD HOME IS SET IN THE HEART OF THIS VERY SOUGHT AFTER VILLAGE. One of the most historical Grade II Listed properties in the village, Orchard Cottage is set on a particularly good size plot and offers an ideal combination of period features whilst having been improved and updated over recent years. Located in the heart of Aspley Guise, the cottage is only a short stroll to the "square", the Anchor Pub/restaurant, Moore Place Hotel, rural footpaths and the very well-regarded Lower School. Internally, the kitchen has been refitted and the owners have installed a new ensuite and new gas boiler, redecorated throughout and added several new floorings. These sympathetic improvements enhance the original character of the property which include inglenook and open fireplaces, ledged and braced doors, exposed beam work and cottage windows. Having two staircases, the accommodation has a flexible layout and many of the rooms are dual aspect and offer attractive views over the garden. The grounds are a feature of the cottage, having very good size lawns which are set around planted borders with terrace patios, pathways, a raised child's swimming pool, kitchen garden and timber shed. Located at the end of the garden is a detached double garage with electric door and electric charge point and parking for two cars on the drive in front and there is additional parking for two to three cars to the front of the property if required. The entrance door leads to both the sitting room and dining rooms with a staircase rising to the first floor. The dining room has a quarry tiled floor, dual aspect windows and leads to the kitchen. The owners have refitted the kitchen with a range of base and wall units with an American style fridge/freezer and a central island preparation unit has built in cupboards to provide additional storage and houses an induction hob and over for cooking purposes. A butler sink is inset into worktops with a mixer tap and windows face to the front and door leads to a rear entrance hall. Off this hall lies a handy refitted cloakroom with a white suite and a utility room which has range of cupboards, space for washing machine plus tumble dryer and a cupboard conceals the gas boiler which was installed in 2019. The sitting room lies to the left of the main entrance hall, is dual aspect and features an original inglenook fireplace, exposed beams with doors leading to the family room and cellar which provides useful storage and has a light. The family room is a good size and has wooden flooring and a focal cast iron fireplace with a second staircase to the first floor along with double doors to the conservatory. Overlooking the garden, the conservatory is heated by a radiator if required and has doors to an Astroturf area and lawns.
