A simply stunning period cottage dating from 1848, beautifully refurbished throughout in a tranquil setting adjacent to open farmland just a short distance of the village centre.
This quite exceptional property has been the subject of a complete restoration project over the past three years by the present owners, whose painstaking attention to detail has produced a truly inspirational home. The property has been skilfully extended to reflect the original structure and they have created a wonderful balance of contemporary functionality within a traditional period framework. All the wiring, plumbing and central heating has been completely replaced, along with individually made windows.
The accommodation flows effortlessly with the vaulted double height kitchen/dining/living room being the star of the show. This is fitted with handmade units, exquisitely painted in 'Farrow & Ball' with solid oak work surfaces, including the large central island. The flooring is engineered oak with underfloor heating. There is a cosy snug/ reception area and a further formal sitting room. A cloakroom and utility room, which is also fitted with hand made units, completes the ground floor.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with a beautifully appointed shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the sanitary ware is by Duravit.
Outside there is a detached annexe which has a large double bedroom with en suite shower room together with a generous living room (currently used as a home office). The annexe has its own independent under floor heating system.
The delightful gardens which extend to approximately two thirds of an acre, have been cleverly landscaped to complement the cottage and the setting. There is an extensive area of lawn; two paved terraces with lavender beds, a formal garden with lavender and box hedging, with a beech hedge surrounding the kitchen/herb garden. There is a main drive with ample parking, together with a secondary gated driveway.
