A delightful 4 bedroom detached period property on a plot of approximately one third of an acre (tbv). Long driveway and ample space for parking together with the potential to create hard standing and/or build garages. Two summer houses, a shed and a former stable all currently used for storage. The cottage is believed to have been three cottages originally and dating back to 1860.It is tile hung and also has a peg tiled roof, period features, 5 fire places, and a red two oven Aga.
From the long driveway adjacent to the property take the side gate into the garden and follow the brick pathway to the door passing the outside water pump as you go by. Entering by this door you step into the utility room with its white washed brick walls and a brick tiled floor. Here there is a butler sink and draining board and wall cupboards to both the left and the right together with a window overlooking the garden. The boiler is situated here and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and a freezer. The brick flooring continues into the original larder cupboard ahead which has a window at the far end and a quirky wooden door. There is a part glazed door which opens into the breakfast room and this, in turn, opens into the kitchen with laminate flooring throughout both rooms. The breakfast room has a striking red 2 oven Aga with tiled surround and Sheila Maid for drying/airing clothes. On the opposite wall there is a full height dresser with shelves, drawers and deep storage beneath which is a real feature in the room. There are plenty of wall and base units plus a further built in full height storage cupboard. There are recessed spotlights, a large window and wood cornicing all around. It is an ideal room for informal eating and socialising with plenty of space for a kitchen table and six chairs. Adjacent to the breakfast room is the kitchen with space and plumbing for a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer and an electric oven and hob. There is a one and a half bowl white sink and drainer beneath a window overlooking the garden. There is a good range of white gloss wall and base units together with a pull-out larder cupboard. The wall tiles are white with inset feature tiling of red poppies to complement the red Aga in the breakfast room. There are recessed spotlights and the radiator has a white latticed fretwork cover. The door from the kitchen leads into the hallway with dining/family/playroom to the right, stairs and cloakroom to the left and study ahead with living room beyond and to the right.
The dining/family/playroom has a large window and a period fireplace with a marble hearth and with a wooden surround and, again, the radiator has a latticed fretwork cover. This room could be used for formal dining or family relaxation according to needs. Its generous proportions allow space for both a dining room table and chairs as well as a settee for cosy nights by the fire. There is a recessed bookcase which was previously the door to the living room and could be opened up again if preferred. The study has quarry tiles on the floor, half height panelling all around and the door ahead would have been the original front door. There is a window to the side overlooking the garden which is a lovely outlook. To the left is the door to the cloakroom and here there is a champagne coloured wash hand basin with tiled splashback together with a small original cottage window which is a lovely feature. Stepping down, the WC is at a slightly lower level and has half height tiling all around and a frosted window behind. From the study there is a step up to the right into the living room which has a period fireplace with cast iron surround and mantel in cream with a wood burner and, again, the radiator has a lattice fretwork cover. To the side there is a large window and this room has the additional feature of original floorboards.
