Occupying a discrete private position on the gentle slopes of Red Hill, Chancellors Cottage is a beautifully presented and sympathetically extended character home that in parts dates back some 200 years. Located at the foot of a private driveway, the views simply take your breath away with miles and miles of rolling countryside stretching out and around the property for as far as the eye can see.
Arriving at the property via the private drive you enter a further attractive shingle parking area for the house that sweeps past the beautifully tended rear garden. There is ample space for a good number of vehicles and the driveway leads in turn to a wonderful detached car barn, and attached workshop.
Entering the property you are immediately greeted by an impressive reception hallway that features a lovely oak staircase rising to the first floor with oak beams to the ceiling and a gorgeous tiled floor, a wonderful first impression and fabulous place to greet guests. From the reception hallway your eyes cannot help but be drawn towards the glazed French doors that link the dining room and the incredible views beyond! The dining room is another beautifully presented room, perfect for hosting more formal dinner parties or family get togethers. The lovely easy flow of the ground floor accommodation continues as an open archway proceeds through to the living room, a glorious light filled room packed with character. To one side a handsome stone fireplace complete with an inset cast iron wood burner creates a focal point whilst doors lead out to the garden to the rear and link back through to the reception hallway. There is a further study and pantry accessed off the hallway which with some reconfiguration could be adapted to create a ground floor bedroom.
The impressive farmhouse style kitchen is full of rustic charm with a beautiful exposed stone wall, historic timbers beams and a glorious travertine tiled floor. The kitchen area is fitted with a substantial range of solid wood units with contrasting wood block and granite counter tops. There is a large range style cooker with an additional integrated oven to the side. Beyond the kitchen area is a triple aspect breakfast/garden room boasting the most incredible views over the surrounding countryside, from watching the sun rise in the East to it setting in the West there is an ever changing picture you could never get bored of. Completing the ground floor rooms is a useful and spacious utility and cloakroom, perfect for decamping your boots and coats after a busy day out in the garden.
On the first floor, arranged off a delightful galleried hallway are the four bedrooms, each completely individual in their appeal they all benefit from gorgeous views from differing aspects. The master bedroom is worthy of particular mention and features a smart en-suite shower room and a range of handcrafter fitted wardrobes. Bedrooms two and three also benefit from fitted cupboards whilst bedroom four is a perfect child's room or study. Finally, the family bathroom is another beautifully presented room and is fitted with a classic white suite with a separate shower cubicle and quality fittings throughout.
Outside, Chancellors Cottage revels in its glorious gently elevated position with its wonderful panoramic views. The gardens whilst extensive, are unfussy, with a large area of lush green lawn interspersed with several mature fruit trees along with a number of thoughtfully positioned seating areas from which to enjoy the scenery with a glass of wine. Discretely tucked away behind an established hedgerow and sheltered from the prevailing winds and weather is a productive vegetable and fruit garden ideal for those with green fingers and a desire to create their own home produce.
