A rather charming and deceptively spacious former dairy conversion (total area1700 ft2), comprising two double bedrooms, en-suite and family bathroom, vaulted sitting room, kitchen/dining room, garden room and bedroom three/study, with parking and a pretty secluded garden, tucked away from the road, yet striking distance of local amenities. EPC Rating: D.
This fabulous expansive property was converted by the current owners, having originated as a diary, then used as a carpentry workshop, it now forms a comfortable, characterful home. One approaches via a front door to the spacious hallway, with wooden flooring, exposed timbers and brickwork, with an attractive bricked recess and stairs to the first floor.
A thumb latch timber door leads to the sitting room, with a lovely vaulted roof line, with velux style windows with door and window to side. This is a lovely room, still with the cows' rope hooks to one wall, brick pillars and a brick fireplace with wood burner to one end, oak flooring and double doors to the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a spacious room, arranged as two areas, with beamed ceilings, tiled flooring and space for table and chairs to one side, plus a dresser unit, and a range of cupboards and drawers with worktops to the other side, plus a ceramic one and a half bowl sink with drainer, space for cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is a window to side, plus a window to rear, a tiled splash back and timber ceiling.
Further double doors lead to the garden room, again with an oak floor and windows and glass doors to the rear garden. Stairs lead up to the third bedroom/study, built into the roofline above the kitchen, complete with velux window to side and a window to rear, plus access to eaves storage.
Off the main hall is the large master bedroom, with ample fitted wardrobes and dresser units, with a window to front and beamed ceiling.
Opposite the bedroom is the main bathroom, comprising a panelled bath with shower above, WC and pedestal basin, part panelled walls, tiled splash backs, vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers and brickwork, two large built-in cupboards housing utility/washing appliances.
Stairs lead up from the hallway to a double bedroom with a dormer window to front and access to eaves storage, and archway to the en-suite shower room, comprising a shower, WC and basin, velux window to front and a door to the large loft storage area.
Outside, to the front the property is approached via a shared stone driveway within the 'Mews' properties, with a block paved area providing private parking with the front door to the cottage.
The rear garden is fence and hedge enclosed, with a gate to the driveway. Outside the garden room is a paved patio area, forming a very private place to sit, with a small wall and steps to the lawned garden, with brick edged flowerbeds and stepping stones leading to a summerhouse/studio to the rear, with a door to a shed and store and power supply.
