Property details

Inside

A truly unique Grade II* period home set in this magical village, with its white-washed thatched cottages lining a broad street.

The entrance leads to the hallway, off one side of which is the DINING ROOM, replete with terracotta tiled floor and a window overlooking the pretty street scene. To the right is the SITTING ROOM, a cosy space with an inglenook fireplace hosting a an electric faux wood burner and original bread oven - the perfect place to 'toast your toes' in the cooler months.

Connecting both rooms is the KITCHEN, which has a has a range of timber-fronted base and wall units with plentiful granite worksurfaces. Appliances include an integrated fridge/freezer, sink with drain and mixer tap, and space for further white goods. Adjacent to the kitchen is the contemporary FAMILY BATHROOM, which has a bath, WC and basin.

Beyond the kitchen, the true size and versatility of the property becomes ever more apparent, with a long hallway connecting several versatile rooms, in addition to access to the front and side of the property. This section boasts a multitude of living options for any demographic. In its current format, this area includes a large UTILITY ROOM with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, plus a sink and further worktop and cupboard space. Next is a generous WORKSHOP, a truly impressive space with light, power and ample storage. This room would also lend itself ideally to being a STUDIO for those of an artistic bent, or a GAMES ROOM. Next is a room currently utilised as a double BEDROOM, and finally a dedicated STUDY. Individually, these rooms are generous and boast a multitude of uses barely touched upon here. Combined, (subject to necessary consents), you have a comfortable ANNEXE with complete autonomy from the rest of the house if you so wish – an ideal opportunity for multi-generational living or as an additional income prospect.

The twin themes of space and versatility continue to the FIRST FLOOR. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is situated to the front of the property and boasts large wardrobes and views of the village. BEDROOM TWO, also a generous double room, enjoys a similar outlook. BEDROOMS THREE and FOUR, along with a CLOAKROOM with WC and wash-hand basin, are situated to the rear of the property and are currently accessed via the main bedroom. Ideally situated to expand the facilities of the main bedroom to utilise the area as a self-contained DRESSING SUITE, there also exists the option of allowing access via Bedroom Two, or through the large wardrobes of the main bedroom (subject to any consent), effectively creating an additional hallway. This property really does offer options and opportunities for a wide range of needs and preferences.

Outside

A tranquil retreat or picturesque entertaining space, the area includes attractive raised flowerbeds, seating and entertaining space, and a waterfall feature, all bounded by a timber sleeper wall. On a practical note, there is a SINGLE GARAGE with power and light and parking to the front of the cottage.
