THE PROPERTY

This attractive stone cottage enjoys a private position accessed off Blackmile Lane and protected by its mature cottage garden that surrounds the property and offers both privacy and protection. Under the custodianship of the current owners the cottage has been sympathetically upgraded and modernised yet retains all the period charm with original fireplaces, painted beamed ceilings and leaded light windows. The cottage has a very cosy feel and both the kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory lend themselves to entertaining. Its setting on the edge of the village is a very endearing feature where one can enjoy views over rolling open countryside and the presence of a swimming pool with summerhouse and extensive paving, offers great lifestyle benefits. As with all individual properties a viewing will be essential to fully appreciate all on offer. THE COTTAGE A timber framed thatched porch provides access to a pair of stable doors that open onto the limestone floored kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys views over both the front and rear gardens. The bespoke shaker fitted kitchen has a run of base and eye level units with granite work surfaces and inset double enamel butler sink. Fitted appliances include Smeg stainless steel range cooker with 6 ring gas hob, integral Bosch dishwasher and full height fridge. The conservatory lies off the kitchen offering a great entertaining/dining space overlooking the landscaped rear garden with glimpses of open countryside beyond. French doors lead out onto a paved terrace with steps up onto the rear lawn. The sitting room benefits from attractive stone fireplace housing a wood burner on a York stone hearth. Lying beyond is the cosy family room enjoying a double aspect with two windows seats and a cast iron fireplace. Lying off the kitchen is the utility/boot room with bespoke fitted shaker units offering storage space along with stainless steel sink. The cloakroom has a recess and plumbing for a washing machine with shelf above to accommodate a drier. From the utility room one can access the single garage which also benefits from direct access off the drive. In the corner is a wall mounted AGAR gas fired boiler. FIRST FLOOR Stairs rise to the first floor landing which runs along the front elevation of the cottage with all bedrooms radiating off. The main bedroom enjoys a double aspect lying at the end of the landing with fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room. The three remaining double bedrooms are served by a well proportioned and part tiled family bathroom with panelled bath, wc, pedestal hand basin and glazed corner shower cubicle. An airing cupboard, accessed off the landing, houses hot water cylinder with slatted shelving above. GARDEN AND GROUNDS A five bar field gate opens onto a gravelled parking area edged by herbaceous borders. The gravelled drive gives way to a block paved area providing further parking and access to the integral garage. The paviours are partly edged by mature border along with semi-circular lawn with external boundaries defined by mature laurel hedging. The rear cottage garden can be accessed from either side of the cottage via paved and gravelled paths and offers a perfect environment to wind down and relax from the stresses and strains of modern life. Lying close to the conservatory is a tiled seating terrace with steps up to the raised lawn enclosed by mature hedgerow boundaries and well stocked borders. The 10m x 5m swimming pool with side roman end is neatly positioned in the north west corner to benefit from the sun's rays at all times of the day. The pool has a paved surround along with raised terracotta tiled terrace providing great outdoor space for both entertaining and relaxing. The whole pool area is enclosed by picket fencing and overlooking the paved terraces is a timber summerhouse with power and light connected. Lying behind the summerhouse is a timber shed housing the pool filtration equipment and to the side of the shed is an external gas fired boiler that requires replacing.
