'The Old Cottage' dates back more than 200 years and effortlessly combines contemporary style with period features, such as the stunning inglenook fireplace in the lounge, wood beams fashioned throughout downstairs, and the stylish open plan kitchen/diner. Once two properties, the cottage has a delightful spacious flow throughout with plenty of storage space to hide entails such as the hoover and mop!
This historic gem is nestled within thick stone walls and embedded with sweet shrubs and bushes; a neatly grassed lawn is found directly in front of the property benefiting from a southerly aspect alongside two garden sheds and a hand build patio that catches the sun into the evening. The present owners use off-street parking space adjacent to the property to park their car and take advantage of the allotments a short stroll away to grow fruit and vegetables.
The current vendors have had the pleasure of owning the cottage for just over four years and in that time, they have redecorated, updated the kitchen, added a downstairs toilet and given endless amounts of love to a cottage that stole their hearts.
Towards the front elevation is the cosy lounge with large working inglenook fireplace, lightly coloured carpets that run through the lounge and upstairs whilst two cottage windows peak out onto the garden and country lane. Towards the rear elevation is the kitchen/dining room of which is perfect for entertaining with more than enough space to house the traditional set of dining room furniture.
The two rooms are separated by a neat breakfast bar of which the current vendors added themselves. The kitchen is fashioned with slate tile flooring, a beautiful contrast to the cream country inspired cupboards and light wood countertops with space for a gas oven towards the centre wall, a dishwasher and washing machine are nestled between a large farmhouse sink lit by another window looking into the utility/porch. The property offers the added benefit of a separate utility/porch and downstairs toilet with underfloor heating and access into the garden.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms with lightly coloured carpets, all with double glazed cottage style windows looking into the private walled garden. The family bathroom is a fair size with a full length bath and overhead shower fashioned in different shades of beige and brown with easy cleaning wood flooring.
The property is warmed by gas central heating and double glazing, has underfloor heating in the porch/utility, and a good amount of storage both in the form of built-in wardrobes in bedroom two, an understairs walk-in pantry and boarded loft space. EPC rating D.
