With parts reputedly dating back to 1650, this pretty semi-detached cottage offers modern conveniences among its period features and the delightful accommodation is set over three floors. With a prized address, the property enjoys ease of access to the village amenities along with the beautiful surroundings and views Grape Lane offers. Briefly the accommodation comprises two reception rooms, a superb breakfast kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a home office and will appeal to a wide audience.
The Puginesque, studded timber front door, originally from the former Croston Hall, opens into the vestibule with arched windows to either side and a ceiling light above.
A further uPVC door gives way into the spacious lounge with two windows to the front and a window to the side. A tall marble effect fire surround with brick fire-back houses a gas log burner resting on a painted stone flagged hearth. Two ceiling lights sit between the exposed ceiling beams, there is a television point and the room is warmed by two radiators. The engineered oak flooring continues through into the dining room and hallways.
The charming dining room has a window to the rear, wall lighting points and a beamed ceiling. A radiator warms the area which extends to the stairwell with a door to the downstairs bathroom and an inner hall has a personal door to the garage and a door to the kitchen.
The delightful breakfast kitchen has a pine effect laminate flooring and a central pendant light. The room is fitted with a range of milk-white shaded Shaker style kitchen cabinets and drawers with pewter button and cup handles, respectively. Oak work surfaces surround and incorporate an inset one and a half bowl sink unit with French style mixer tap above set beneath the window to the side. Also inset is a four-burner induction hob set beneath a dresser canopy with inset extractor fan and, close by, a complementary eye-level double oven and grill. There is also an integrated Neff automatic dishwasher and housing for a fridge freezer. French windows open to an east facing patio garden with water feature and clematis laden trellis work which is ideal for morning coffee with the newspaper and, on the opposite side of the kitchen, a timber door opens to a west facing patio garden to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. Both patio areas have armoured power points, external lighting and outside taps.
The downstairs bathroom reveals fully tiled walls and floor in a shade of soft grey forming the backdrop to the luxury white suite comprising pedestal wash hand basin and a roll-top claw foot bathtub with shower and glass screen over. There is also a central ceiling light and a radiator to warm the towels.
The inner hall has a staircase rising and turning to the first floor, passing a window to the rear along the way giving rural views, and also having a storage cupboard beneath. The landing has a central pendant light, an oak spindle balustrade and beautifully idiosyncratic latch doors to each of the rooms.
Bedroom one has windows overlooking the front and side, a central pendant light and radiator. There is more than ample space for a king size bed and clothes storage furniture.
Bedroom two also overlooks the front garden, has a pendant light and radiator and is a good-sized double room.
The shower room with part-tiled and part-timber panelled walls has a window to the rear, a chrome ladder-style heated towel rail, a one and a half size glazed shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin and a loo with a view.
A spindle staircase with latch door linen cupboard beneath leads up to the split-level loft room which is currently used as a home office and hobby room. The current owners have also used it as a short-term occasional bedroom. There are two Velux windows, two exposed brick walls, it is wired for wall lighting and there is a spot light attached to the ceiling beam.
The property, which has been owned by the family for almost twenty years, is set beyond a low-level laurel hedge and approached through a five-barred timber gateway which leads to the pebbled resin driveway, providing a turning and parking area for five cars and leading to the double garage. The double garage has electronically controlled sectional doors and a side window. There is power and light within and space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer plus the garage houses the Worcester gas central heating combination boiler. An exterior armoured power point could easily be adapted to an EV charging point.
Passing between the smoke tree at the gateway and an ancient pear tree, the garden opens to a cobbled-paved and pebbled area surrounding a raised island shrub bed filled with cottage style planting and bordered by shrub and rose beds. Lattice fencing and a gateway open to the patio area with space for al fresco dining furniture.
