Property description

Description:
Ketley Cottage is an exceptionally pretty detached house dating from the 15th Century, which was originally situated on the far side of Bewl Water and was considered to be of sufficient historical and architectural significance that it was dismantled and preserved in 1976 when the site was flooded for the reservoir and rebuilt in 1980. It has subsequently been extended (1998) and improved by the current owners and provides spacious accommodation over three floors of approximately and also offers scope for further enlargement, if required. The property benefits from being unlisted and has some lovely features, including exposed timbers, panelling and oak floors.

The accommodation includes on the ground floor an entrance hall with doors leading to a sitting room and dining room. The sitting room is double aspect and has superb exposed timbers, panelled walls, oak flooring and an impressive inglenook fireplace with an oak bressumer.
A door from the sitting room leads to a study with a window overlooking the rear garden and a further door leading to the rear hall. A door from the hall leads out the terrace and rear garden and there are further doors to a cloakroom, large storage cupboard and utility area and to a good sized kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has an extensive range of oak wall and base units with granite work surfaces, slate floor and breakfast bar. A door from the breakfast room leads to a lovely double aspect dining room, which has oak flooring and an attractive sandstone fireplace fitted with a wood burner. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom and on the second floor is a further vaulted double bedroom and a bathroom.

To the front of the property is a gravel driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles and a detached garage (which we understand was originally the village forge) with an adjoining workshop, which also offers scope for further uses. There is access on both sides of the house to the landscaped rear garden, which has a good sized terrace and is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs, hedging and trees.
