£565,000

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
This beautiful Grade ll Listed weather-boarded building once provided working space for the varied uses of this and the adjacent buildings, including a workshop, blacksmiths, coachmaker, builders merchant and an inn. Now all in domestic use, it is an essential part of this historic High Street scene.

The current owner has done a splendid job in completely re-furbishing this beautiful cottage to provide a wonderful mixture of period features and contemporary fixtures and fittings. As you walk through the house, the accommodation flows beautifully and is predominantly an off-set open plan space with each room leading straight through to the next, ideal for family living. Exposed timbers feature throughout, together with visible brickwork and traditional wood latch doors.

On entering the cottage, a spacious reception hall could easily double as a study/reading area, with the stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting room is adjacent and features an attractive wood-burning stove. To the rear is an impressive kitchen/dining room with a range of recently installed contemporary wall and base units complemented by marble work surfaces, twin electric ovens and matching ceramic hob. There is ample space for a large table and chairs, great for family get togethers and entertaining. Double doors lead out onto the private, landscaped rear garden. This room is open plan to another kitchen/utility area which has also been fitted to match and offers plenty of storage space. Finally, there is a cloakroom/w.c on the ground floor.

Upstairs, the first floor provides four generous bedrooms, all enjoying the airy feel of part vaulted ceilings, and the recently fitted family bathroom has a four piece suite. The principal bedroom is accessed via a dressing area. The en-suite facility houses a bespoke Hammam steam room.

To the rear of the property is an enclosed, private rear garden that has been recently landscaped for ease of maintenance and gated side access.
