This is a delightful 3 bedroom detached period property believed to date from the 1850s and likely to have been the farm manager’s cottage which has been extended over time whilst retaining period features such as wood flooring , wood interior doors and cast iron fireplaces. A 5- bar gate opens onto a large gravel driveway which provides both parking and turning space together with a garage.
Approaching the house, there is a half-glazed front door opening into the porch with the stairs ahead, living room to the left and dining room to the right. The living room has a triple window to the front and a large fireplace with brickwork, quarry tiled hearth and a wood surround. It has an electric wood burner style heater and on each side of the fireplace there are features arches with a cupboard to the right and open shelving to the left.
Beyond the living room is the kitchen which has a good range of cream wall and base units in a country style and dark red tiling provides an effective contrast in the colour scheme and with neutral Amtico flooring. There is a dark green 2 oven Aga set within a brick surround, an integrated under the counter fridge, space and plumbing for a dishwasher together with space for additional appliances in the utility room. There is a one and a half bowl sink beneath a window to the side of the house and another window overlooking the rear garden. It is a good size and presently has a table and 2 chairs alongside an alcove which has a bench seat making a lovely feature. To the right of this is a built-in full height pine dresser providing further storage and display shelving.
From the kitchen there is access to the cellar which has been fully tanked so now provides an additional room with space for further appliances as well as plenty of storage space and shelving. It could be used as a home office, study, play area or hobby room according to individual requirements.
A short corridor leads from the kitchen to the utility room with cloakroom beyond on the left, stable door to the garden ahead and dining room to the right in this deceptively spacious cottage! The utility room has a sink beneath a large window overlooking the rear garden, cupboards and blue half height panelling reinforcing the “cottagey” feel. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble drier. Karndean flooring continues from here into the cloakroom, again with the blue panelling and also pine cupboards and shelving together with a white wash hand basin and WC.
Returning to the dining room, there is a window to the side and an area to sit and relax at this end of the room. At the far end of the room, the main dining area has space for a large ding room table and chairs and a dresser. There is a window overlooking the front garden and, to the side, a superb original cast iron fireplace with cupboards on each side.
Moving upstairs, the master bedroom is to the front of the property with a large window. There is the luxury of both an en-suite shower room and a dressing room and both are good size rooms. The dressing room currently has a triple wardrobe, a double wardrobe and a dressing table beneath the window overlooking the front garden. The en-suite shower room has a curved shower cubicle with an Aquilisa shower, a white wash hand basin and WC. There is half-height blue tiling with a feature inset of seaside tiling and white tiling above. In addition to the radiator there is also a white heated towel rail and neutral Karndean flooring.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both good size double rooms. Bedroom 2 is to the front of the house and has a useful storage cupboard with hanging rail and shelving. It has a lovely original cast iron fireplace painted light blue and cream in keeping with the décor of the room. Bedroom 3 is to the rear of the property, again with a cast iron fireplace. As before, there is a built-in cupboard with a hanging rail and shelving.
