This absolutely charming period terrace cottage displays an array of original character features which create an invitingly comfortable home. Briefly, the beautifully presented accommodation comprises a generous living room with brick ingle log burning stove, a well-appointed hand-painted dining kitchen, delightful heritage-colour timber-built conservatory, two good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor. The secluded, split-level, west facing rear garden gives an idyllic retreat and the ideal location is within walking distance of the renowned schools and excellent amenities this picturesque village has to offer.
So appealing, this charming period terrace cottage, dating back to the mid-1800’s, is brimming with period character features such as exposed beams, rafters, tongue and groove latch doors and original broad and exposed floorboards to the bedrooms.
Entered via a more recently fitted composite door with cast iron furniture, the comfortably spacious living room, with exposed beams and rafters, has a window to the front and, for evening ambience, four wall lights. Your eye is drawn to the brick ingle fireplace with timber mantle, inset stone lintel and stone hearth which embraces a Stoves wood burning stove whilst a radiator supplements the warmth on chillier evenings. To one side of this is a television point and to the other side is a built-in cabinet housing the energy meters. A staircase rises and turns to the first floor, has a storage cupboard beneath and a latch door gives way to the dining kitchen.
With a stone flagged floor and feature exposed brick wall, the dining kitchen is fitted with a good range of Shaker style hand-painted grey cabinets incorporating drawers with brushed steel cup handles and knobs, wood and stainless-steel vegetable drawers and having white subway tiling between levels. The oak wood-block worktops have an inset one and a half bowl ceramic single drainer sink unit with swan neck mixer tap, set beneath the rear window. Also inset is an AEG five-burner gas hob with stainless steel extractor fan above and a complementary double oven and grill below. Integrated appliances include an AEG washing machine, slimline dishwasher, fridge freezer and an essential wine chiller. One of the cabinets houses the gas central heating combination boiler and a vertical tube radiator warms both kitchen and dining areas. Recessed downlights illuminate the kitchen and the dining area has a window to the rear and ample room for a table and chairs.
A stable-style, part-glazed door opens into the centrally heated, heritage green, timber-built conservatory which blends perfectly with the double-glazed windows and composite door. The laminate flooring offers a practical finish, there is a central ceiling light, a wall-mounted television point and double doors open to the garden.
Rising to the first-floor landing, there are both ceiling and wall lights, two bedrooms and a bathroom each accessed via latch doors.
The master bedroom has a window to the front with views over the conserved woodland and Croston Hall farmland beyond. Lit by a pendant light and having exposed broad floor boards, this generously spacious room has fitted wardrobes with sliding doors to one wall incorporating concealed drawers, shelving and hanging rails. There is also a loft hatch and a radiator.
The good-sized second bedroom has a semi-vaulted ceiling with track lighting alongside the exposed ceiling beam whilst a rear window gives natural light and overlooks the rear garden. This room is also fitted with a range of wardrobes having shelving within.
The bathroom has an opaque rear window, a ceiling light and an exposed ceiling beam. Tiled to all splash areas, the contemporary three-piece white suite comprises a tile panelled bath with protective screen and dual-head shower over, a wall mounted wash basin with Monoblock tap and storage beneath, and a close coupled w.c. A wall-mounted, high level chrome heated rail is on hand to warm the towels.
From the conservatory, step out and up onto the stone flagged patio which stretches across the rear elevation, has a wood store, an outside light and tap, and also provides a perfect al fresco dining and seating area. A cobbled rise gives way to the easy-maintenance artificial lawn which has a well-stocked, sleeper-edged raised flower and shrub border to one side and a babbling brook-style water feature along the other. The lengthy garden is enclosed by privet hedging to three sides and a gate at the far end opens to a right of way for bin storage and removal. Also, at the far end of the garden, and catching the afternoon sun, is a decked seating area with a cairn-style water feature and a decorative side screen. Two timber sheds provide excellent storage and the larger of the two also has power and light.
