This “chocolate-box” pretty cottage dating back to C1700 is set in a prime position in Newburgh Village Conservation Area with views over the green. Having a Grade II listing to the frontage, the double fronted property comprises two reception rooms, two bedrooms, a modern kitchen and shower-room. The extensive and secluded, rear lawn garden has a path leading to the rear private garage and carport, and the location is ideal for easy commuter transport networks.
Set beyond a low stone wall with garden frontage, a well-worn stone step stands before the painted oak door which is sheltered by a slate tiled over-hang porch and opens to the vestibule with an oak floor, pendant light and a rack of hooks to hang your coat on.
A further door opens into the dining room with a window to the front and a central pendant light having razed-edged ceiling beams to either side. Warmed by a log burning stove the fireplace stands proudly beyond the table space and there is a radiator to supplement warmth when needed.
Doors lead off to the kitchen and to the inner hall which has a spindle staircase rising and turning to the first floor and a step leads down to the under-stairs study area.
Beautifully presented, the comfortably cosy lounge is set off the inner hall and has a window to the front and a pendant light alongside the central beamed ceiling, creating a lovely light room. The television point sits to the side of the striking ingle fireplace with exposed beam above, brick sides and a log burning stove resting on the stone flagged hearth.
The charming kitchen is well provided with medium oak wall and base cabinets and drawers which line three walls, include bookshelves and kick-board lighting and have subway-style tiling between levels. Wood effect counters surround and incorporate a white enamel sink unit with swan neck mixer tap over which is set beneath the rear window and has, to the side, a broad, timber door with leaded light which opens to the rear garden. Also inset is a four-ring ceramic hob with oven and grill below and a canopy extractor fan over and there is space for an under-counter fridge. There is also space for an automatic washing machine with a cupboard above housing the Baxi gas central heating boiler. Two pendant lights illuminate, there is a high-level plate rack to decorate and a loft access point.
The fully tiled bathroom has an opaque window to the rear, extractor fan, a pendant light and light wood effect vinyl flooring for a practical finish. The white three-piece suite comprises a corner glazed cubicle with Mira Sport shower, pedestal wash hand basin and a low flush w.c.
A side window at the half-landing turn throws light on the staircase’s spindle balustrade, stripped pine latch doors to the bedrooms, and the vaulted and beamed ceiling of the landing.
Both of the spacious, double bedrooms have windows to the front elevation, vaulted and beamed ceilings, pendant lights to illuminate and more than ample space for wardrobes, tall-boys and night-stands.
A side gate leads from Ash Brow to the garden which has a large, block paved sun terrace alongside the rear elevation creating an ideal spot for morning coffee or evening drinks. A crazy-paved York stone path leads past the tile-edged lawn with shrub borders to one side and a brick-built outhouse and log store with tiled roof, power and light, to the other.
There is a further timber shed for garden equipment and, beyond a low-level privet hedge, a second terrace for al fresco dining on the brick-built barbecue – taking full advantage of the afternoon and evening sun whilst sitting around the tree-trunk table. A picket fence and gate to the end of the garden gives way to steps descending to the concrete hard-standing and timber cabin-style garage with side car port which has a separate electric supply and security lighting.
Additional note: This charming property is Grade II Listed to the front elevation and has approved timber double glazing fitted in keeping with its era. Along with the open fire and log burning stove, the cottage is also warmed by a gas central heating combination boiler.
