An alluring chocolate box cottage in the picturesque hamlet of Blackmoor, near Lower Langford. This charming period home exudes character and features two/three bedrooms, a stunning south facing living room and a well proportioned Kitchen/diner.
Dating back in parts to the 18th century 'Myrtle Cottage' is a beautiful dressed stone period home with an attractive clay tiled roof, distinctive decorative windows, and a pretty gabled fronted porch. Approached via a generous off street parking bay with plenty of space for two cars, an attractive picket fence encloses the due south facing lawned garden. A delightful stone path leads to the front of the house where a pleasant terraced seating area occupies an appealing position to sit and soak up the mid day sun. On entering the cottage through the attractive storm porch you are greeted by a wonderfully atmospheric sitting room with gorgeous exposed ceiling beams, a handsome stone fireplace featuring a stovax woodburning stove, exposed stone walls, and a delightful stained glass window set over the entrance door. From the sitting room a traditional painted ledged door leads through to the kitchen/dining room with another matching door hiding a discrete staircase rising to the first floor.
The Kitchen/Dining Room is another generously proportioned room, full of charm and older world style. The kitchen area itself features a substantial range of matching shaker style wall and base units, topped with a solid wood block worksurface. There are conveniently integrated appliances including a washing machine, fridge and freezer, along with a fantastic Rangemaster cooker. There is also a separate matching island unit perfect for food preparation. To the rear of the room is a lovely dining area with tiled floor and spotlights over. There is a useful storage cupboard in the kitchen, and a door leading to a small lobby and cloakroom and a door leading outside.
On the first floor off a welcoming landing area with an original newel post and square edged balustrades, are the three bedrooms. The Master bedroom is a stunning room with an impressive vaulted ceiling showcasing beautiful exposed beams, with two south facing windows overlooking the front garden, bathing the room in superb natural light. To the rear of the first floor is a second double bedroom, whilst the third is an ample cot room or office with a Velux window over. Completing the first floor is a stylish family bathroom complete with separate shower and a feature pedestal sink with granite counter top.
Outside, the garden is positioned to the front aspect of the cottage which is due south, bounded by fence on one side and a mature hedge line on the other, it enjoys a good degree of privacy and has gated access to a spacious off street parking bay for two vehicles. To the side of Myrtle Cottage is a useful stone outbuilding, which is perfect for use as a workshop/hobby room or indeed just for storage.
