Property description

Situated on the edge of this sought after village with superb links to motorway junctions and local train stations, this attractive 4 bedroom stone cottage backs directly onto open farmland. The current owners have been in occupation for over 40 years and have tastefully and sympathetically renovated and extended the cottage whilst preserving a wealth of character features which include exposed beams, Inglenook fireplace and leaded light windows.

Formerly a thatch cottage dating back over 350 years, this property was reportedly first extended in the 1800's and further extended to its current size in 1979/80. The accommodation includes entrance hall, cloakroom, refitted kitchen with appliances open plan to the breakfast room, good sized living room with Inglenook fireplace with log burner, snug with log burner and conservatory opening out onto a terrace area leading to the pool and gardens. The hall also connects with the office and playroom with floored room above and the garage which is used as a workshop also has a floored area above with natural light.

On the upper floor there are exposed ceiling beams to most rooms, four good size bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master suite benefits from a large, well-fitted ensuite shower room and French doors leading to the roof terrace with hot tub and views over the fields and swimming pool. Outside there is parking for 3 vehicles on the sweeping gravel driveway and the well maintained front garden is cottage in style. The gardens wrap around the cottage on 3 sides and to the rear of the property there is a patio with greenhouse and log stores. The conservatory leads onto a further patio area and the swimming pool, beautifully maintained, private, southerly in aspect and with its own pool house. Also to the side of the property there is another area of secluded, beautifully manicured mature cottage style garden with a further shed with power and light.
