An idyllic end of terrace cottage occupying an enviable central village position, overlooking the local Mead and with views towards the 15th century church of St. Andrews. This deceptively spacious chocolate box cottage forms part of an attractive painted terrace. Set behind a beautiful traditional stone wall with a gated pathway leading to the pretty front courtyard garden, you cannot help but be enchanted by the gorgeous flower filled walkway leading to the cottages. Whilst Beechcroft has a pretty but small front garden with outstanding views, it also benefits from a tranquil hidden garden, tucked away just a few short steps from the property with a summer house, and a beautifully landscaped oasis, to potter to your hearts content. The property also has the added benefit of off road parking for one car on Mead Lane.
Entering the property via the traditional wooden porch and door you arrive at the kitchen/breakfast room with an open wooden staircase rising to the first floor. The kitchen is fitted with smart modern style units, complimented by a wooded worktop and provision for white goods. The front facing window enjoys the superb open aspect over the Mead and there is a useful recess under the stairs for storage, another for the fridge freezer and space for a breakfast table.
To the right of the kitchen lies the impressive sitting room which is accessed via a traditional pitch pine door and down a single step. This glorious triple aspect room is a spacious light filled space for all the family to congregate, boasting oak flooring, wooden beams and an attractive feature fireplace, complete with an Aga multi fuel stove and farmhouse style mantle. Measuring some 21' in length there is plenty of room for a large family dining table as well as a soft seating area. Interestingly there is also a second side door that leads out to Mead Lane that once acted as a separate entrance from when the property was once the home of a local shop in past times.
On the first floor off a long meandering passageway are the three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The larger of the bedrooms exist at either end of the hallway with the master bedroom enjoying an ensuite bathroom, whilst bedrooms two and three benefit from their own unique character and lovely views. Completing the first-floor accommodation is the light filled family bathroom, fitted with a smart white suite with shower over the bath, and a throne with a view!
