Description

Chain free. Gorgeous grade II listed cottage built circa 1840, significantly extended and upgraded sympathetically to retain period features. Presented in excellent order with open plan living, 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Approximately 150 ft back garden.

Can anyone remember what TARDIS stood for in Dr Who? I can't either but this house is just like one. As you look at the front of the house you cannot possibly imagine the space beyond. It has a single frontage which doubles at the rear and then extends into a 150 ft back garden. Effectively the original 3 separate terraced cottages were converted into 2 L shaped ones. When you see the original dividing wall between the kitchen and the dining area you'll appreciate how solidly these cottages were built.

The home in brief comprises, living room with character fireplace and log burner, into the dining area with open plan kitchen. These 3 rooms create an L shaped open plan living area which is perfect for entertaining and hosting friends and family. Through the dining area is the extended part of the cottage. This comprises a large snug/utility area that has double doors to an enclosed courtyard. Beyond is a rear hall with a wet room and a guest double bedroom. The stairs off the dining area lead to the landing, 2 further double bedrooms and well appointed family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and a good size separate shower enclosure.

To the outside the front garden is mainly laid to lawn and has a path to the front door. At the rear the garden extends to approximately 150 ft. It is mainly laid to lawn and has a beautiful feature mature Beech tree. At the end of the garden is a raised concrete base that has 2 good size sheds and a log store. The garden also has a large polytunnel.

The current owners have transformed this cottage since purchase in late 2007, maintaining the character and sympathetically converting the old outhouse into well appointed additional accommodation. All work has been carried out with the full knowledge and consent of the listings officer where applicable. Works undertaken include, snug/utility room, rear hall, wet room and double bedroom. The master bedroom was extended utilising space above the old stair well in the kitchen that is now a storage cupboard. The front of the house was repointed in 2013. The chimney was repointed with new cowling and pots in 2014. The oil tank has been replaced with a new double bonded one. A new Worcester Bosch condensing combi oil boiler has been fitted with radiators throughout. The bathroom has been renewed and extended utilising some of the obsolete landing space. The kitchen has been updated as well. The loft has been insulated, boarded, has an integrated ladder and lighting. The cottage has been redecorated to a high standard throughout.

The cottage does not have any allocated parking. The current owners rent 2 spaces privately and have done since purchase in 2007. The landlord is happy to continue this arrangement for new owners. These spaces provide convenient access at the rear of the cottage.
