Set within easy reach of the local villages and transport links, this absolutely charming detached stone-built cottage offers a secluded rural retreat of generous proportions having a lounge with superb gas stove, well-appointed breakfast kitchen and three double bedrooms to the first floor. The gated driveway provides parking space for numerous cars and the south east facing, secluded gardens make this an ideal acquisition for many a discerning purchaser.
To the side of the stone cottage, a uPVC door with glazed inserts and a matching side panel opens into the good-sized hallway with exposed ceiling beam and a painted spindle staircase turning and rising to the first-floor landing and having a storage cupboard beneath. There is also a cupboard housing the electric consumer board, a wall mounted fan heater and the lovely laminate flooring continues from here through to the lounge and the cloakroom.
The generously sized lounge has an opaque side window and sliding patio doors to the rear garden. The room features exposed ceiling beams and pendant lighting for evening ambience and two radiators, however taking centre stage is the superb Gazco gas coals stove with remote-control fire settings which is surrounded by a beamed ingle and resting on a slate-effect tiled hearth.
The breakfast kitchen is fitted with a good range of white, high-gloss wall and base units with drawers and has splash tiling between levels. The grey slate-effect vinyl flooring coordinates perfectly with the granite effect work surfaces which have an inset stainless-steel sink unit with a mixer tap over plus waste disposal unit and set beneath the window to the rear. A canopy-style extractor fan is set above the space for a gas cooker and there is also space for a fridge freezer, an automatic dishwasher and a tumble dryer, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and the room is illuminated by inset spotlights.
Conveniently placed off the hallway is the cloakroom which is fitted with a white two-piece suite comprising a wall mounted wash basin with vanity cabinet beneath and a low flush w.c.
The first-floor landing with loft access has a pendant light, an exposed ceiling beam and gives way to the three double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a window to the rear, exposed ceiling beam, a pendant light, wall-mounted television point and a radiator. Bedroom two has a window to the side, exposed ceiling beam, a pendant light, wall-mounted television point and a radiator. The third bedroom overlooks the rear garden, also has exposed ceiling beam, a pendant light, wall-mounted television point and a radiator plus the benefit of a built-in wardrobe to a corner niche.
The family bathroom has an opaque side window and the natural shaded non-slip flooring and walls tiling forms the backdrop to the four piece white suite which comprises a tile panelled bath with mixer tap, a shower cubicle with sliding doors, a wall mounted wash hand basin having a monobloc tap and an illuminated-mirror cabinet above, and a low flush w.c. There is an extractor fan, inset spotlights and a white ladder-style heated rail to warm the towels.
The cottage is approached via a cobbled area ahead of the bespoke iron gates which open to the extensive Tarmacadam driveway to the side of the cottage which provides parking for four/five cars. Accessed via a timber gate, the secluded and south east facing rear garden is sheltered by a hedge and fence boundary, is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrub borders and has a York stone flagged sun terrace with a seating and al fresco dining area. To the side of the property is a timber, lean-to covered storage area with flagged base – perfect for bike storage or an ideal drying area on a wet day – and has the advantage of armoured power points and an outside tap. For additional storage of garden equipment, there is a timber summer shed at the far end of the lawn.
The property offers enormous scope for extension to the side and/or rear given the appropriate approvals from the local authority.
