THE PROPERTY

First impressions of this lovingly cared for three bedroom attached cottage capture the heart, partly due to its enviable location in one of the best villages in the area, but also because of the distinct character the house and gardens both hold. Predominantly constructed of stone and flint under a tiled roof, the property has been the subject of a significant programme of modifications and upgrades, ensuring it is fit for the demands of modern day living. The solid French oak flooring in the sitting room sets the tone for things to come, complimenting the existing charm that is in abundance here. Perfect for dining, relaxing and entertaining, the centre point of this room is the beautiful wood burner with stone surround, perfect for those cooler evenings. Equally, in summer, the french doors can be flung open to enjoy direct access to the garden. The kitchen has been completely refurbished with new fitted units, integrated appliances and full rewiring and plumbing. With further access to the garden this is a very light and functional space. Upstairs the high standard continues, with three excellent bedrooms all benefiting from the good light that is prevalent throughout most of this house. Lovely countryside views can also be enjoyed from many of these rooms. Worth a special mention is the newly refurbished bathroom finished with contemporary tiling around both a bath and separate shower. The heating system, water tank, consumer units, roof and windows have recently been replaced. Lead work and pointing have also been made good. In addition to the excellent work already done, the house could hold further potential with planning previously granted for a two storey extension. This is a gardener's paradise with an extensive garden that lies to the rear of the property made up of well stocked borders, mature shrubs and trees along with a well-tended vegetable patch, green house and summer house. A terraced area just off the kitchen makes for a wonderful place from which to take in the quiet privacy of this space and perhaps enjoy some al fresco dining. As well as directly to the front of the house, parking is also available at the end of the garden.
