Description

Your very own Hansel & Gretel Cottage in the woods! Sycamore Cottage is in a truly delightful setting tucked away in a quiet backwater on the edge of Cocknage Woods with views to the front as far as the eye can see. The house itself is as unique as the location offering spacious, infinitely adaptable accommodation with three reception rooms, four bedrooms & two bathrooms in the main house, combined with a self-contained annexe, studio / office and a detached 'pavilion' offering additional self-contained accommodation. The gardens are large, sunny & very private with plenty of room for kids to play and space for outdoor living, extensive areas of lawn and a half an acre of garden and slice of woodland to the rear. A fabulous house in a beautiful setting and perhaps the only one we can sell you where you may just find fairies playing at the bottom of the garden on mid-summers eve! Note: The house is in Stafford Borough catchment area. Super fast broadband available at the property. Viewing essential.
