In the semi-rural countryside, behind a wooden gate, hides the most perfect detached white and black cottage, parts of which originate from the 16th Century. This beautiful family home is surrounded on all sides by pathways and land, making access very easy and giving multiple garden areas. To the front, you approach through the full height gate where there is parking for multiple cars and a double garage which has a mezzanine floor for storage and an external electric vehicle charging point. From here the path leads you through to the cottage door and front porch, and into the internal hall which opens up into a larger hall with a deep storage cupboard, a downstairs cloakroom with white suite and a further door leading to the staircase. The cottage benefits from pretty leaded light cottage windows and underfloor heating.
A very generous double aspect sitting/dining room with exposed beams and solid wood flooring offers outstanding versatility, perfect for family living and entertaining. The wood flooring flows through into the kitchen with a range of wall and base units and contrasting marble worktops, space for a Range style oven, integrated fridge and freezer, tile splashback and French doors to the rear garden. There are two further rooms off the kitchen; a utility room with space and plumbing for white goods and a boot room with stable door and outside warm water shower. On the opposite side of the property in the original building the character and charm are in abundance with a further sitting room having an open hearth Inglenook fireplace currently accommodating a woodburning stove, exposed beams and brickwork plus stairs up to the study.
Taking the stairs through the door in the hallway they wind up to the first floor landing where again the house is of two halves. Walking through to the principal bedroom suite in the original building you enter via the en-suite shower room with white suite comprising a large shower, washbasin and WC with ample room for an additional bath should you require, which leads you through into the main characterful bedroom with its low oak beams. A further opening leads into a beautiful dressing room with a full range of wardrobes built insitu. On the other side of the house there are a further three double bedrooms, all with fitted cupboards and a generous single bedroom, together with a family bathroom with heated towel rail, shower and washbasin with vanity unit and a separate WC.
There are lawns to both front and rear of the property with pathways leading around the cottage, mature shrubs and trees. The lawns to the front are raised behind a brick wall. In the rear garden slightly elevated from the lawns is a lovely outdoor swimming pool, controls of which are housed in the garage, and a sauna in the wood summerhouse, which further add to the desirability of this residence.
This stunning family home radiates charm and you should not miss the opportunity to view.
