In the heart of the village, this charming period terrace cottage with many original features offers a comfortable retreat in all seasons – with an inviting lounge with brick ingle log burning stove for autumn and winter months and a beautiful, secluded split-level rear garden for spring and summer. With an ideal location close to the shops, station, and fabulous schools, this appealing cottage has it all.
This absolutely charming period terrace cottage is entered via a solid oak front door with an eye-catching, oval, stained glass pheasant design inset. Dating back to the 1700’s, the cottage is filled with period character features such as exposed beams, rafters and some original broad and exposed floorboards.
The good-sized lounge has a window to the front and, for evening ambience, four wall lights. Adding to the cosy aura is a brick ingle fireplace with beamed mantle, stone hearth and encompassing a multi-fuel burning stove whilst a radiator supplements the warmth on chillier evenings. To one side of this is a built-in cabinet with bookshelves above and a television point is situated to the other. A pine spindle staircase rises and turns to the first floor and a sliding pine door gives way to the kitchen.
With a stone flagged floor, the kitchen is fitted with a good range of ivory shaded wall and base units incorporating drawers and glazed cabinets with splash tiling between levels. The tiled worktops have an inset one and a half bowl stainless steel single drainer sink unit with swan neck mixer tap which is set beneath the opaque rear window. Also inset is a De Dietrich five-burner gas hob with canopy extractor fan above and a double oven and grill below. There is plumbing for a dishwasher and LED track lighting illuminates the area.
An opening lead through to the dining room which has an oak floor, a side window and a part glazed roof allowing an abundance of natural light to flow through plus recessed downlighting for evening time. A corner of the room offers a home office space having a built-in bureau with glazed cabinet above. There are French doors to the rear garden and a latch door to the utility room.
The utility room has a window to the rear and a part glazed door to the garden, a ceiling light and timber panelled walls to dado height. Below the window is a Butlers-style enamel sink unit with side drainer and, alongside, there is plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A built-in cupboard offers additional larder storage, there is space for a freezer and the wall mounted boiler provides hot water for the property.
Upstairs, the landing has a central pendant light, a spindle balustrade and painted tongue and groove latch doors open to each of the rooms.
Bedroom one has a window to the front with views over the village park and playground. There is a pendant light, two wall lights, and a radiator warms the room. Two sets of double wardrobes provide storage; the first with glazed doors has a built-in cupboard alongside with shelves, the second has timber doors and also houses the central heating combination boiler.
Bedroom two has a recessed study area to one side lit by a Velux window and a wall light, and a step up leads to the bedroom area where there are two rear windows, a pendant light and two double built-in wardrobes.
The family bathroom has a Velux window, recessed downlighting and a wall light. The four-piece coloured suite comprises, a timber panelled bath, a pedestal wash basin with mirror and illuminated cabinet over, a low flush W.c. and a corner glazed shower cubicle. The room is tiled to dado height and has a heated rail to keep the towels warm and ready.
From the dining room, the rear covered porch has a bin storage space and a gated access to the right of way across the neighbouring property. The secluded, split-level, rear garden starts at the walled, cobbled courtyard with space for al fresco dining amidst the summer perfume from fragranced climbing plants of jasmine, honeysuckle and clematis. A step up leads to the wall and fence enclosed lawn garden with curved shrub borders brimming with mature and oriental style planting, and a stone and cobble path meanders towards the brick-built garden tool store at the far end.
