WellingtonWise are delighted to offer for sale this stunning cottage that is likely one of the finest homes of its size and price range that we have had the pleasure to market. The original 17th Century home has been extended and updated throughout to the very highest standard and must be viewed to be fully appreciated. The property itself is deceptively spacious from the front and hides an extremely generous plot to the rear with beautiful countryside views.
Entering the property provides immediate wow-factor when you see how the original character and charm has been retained, whilst being combined with contemporary finishes, and how the layout flows for modern living. You enter the kitchen to the right, which has a feature brick floor and open wooden beams enabling you to see through to the extension housing the dining area. This gives a great feeling of space and light due to the dual aspect. The kitchen itself has space for a range oven and all the modern appliances, just off the kitchen is an extremely useful utility room and ground floor toilet and shower room. The utility room houses all those noisy appliances and a recently replaced gas boiler, just one of the many upgrades.
When you pass through the kitchen area to the dining room, which features double doors to the rear garden, you come to what is one of the cleverest additions to this property. A recent two storey extension adds a garden room to the rear of the property that joins the dining area to the sitting room and makes the whole property flow superbly, making it feel extremely spacious and light throughout. Bi-fold doors across the garden room help achieve this and open the property up to the rear garden. The sitting room completes the ground floor and with some style. There is a study area and storage, again with open wooden beams but also with a feature brick-built fireplace with timber bressummer and housing a wood burning stove.
Going to the first floor the property continues to impress. There are three well-proportioned bedrooms leading off the second-floor extension above the garden room, the master and second bedroom are particularly spacious, and all bedrooms are served by a luxury re-fitted bathroom with four-piece suite including a walk-in shower cubicle and roll top bath. The second and third bedrooms have an adjoining door, which can be extremely useful for young children or you could do away with this door completely.
Further features to mention on the property are feature spotlighting, high quality carpets recently fitted on the first floor, replacement windows and doors that are of such quality and colour that they appear to be both modern but fit the period and add excellent energy efficiency to a period home. Underfloor heating to the dining area, garden room and bathroom. Finally, the electrics and boiler were replaced approximately 12 months ago and the whole property was re-roofed. We cannot emphasise enough the attention to detail and care that has gone in to this home by the current owners.
Going outside there is a gravelled driveway to the front that can comfortably accommodate multiple vehicles. To the rear is an exceptionally spacious garden that benefits from a high degree of privacy and is mainly laid to lawn, with hedging and mature trees and fine country views. The gardens have been beautifully maintained and are ideal for enjoying long summer evenings. Another bonus is that the current owners rent two of the private allotments located to the rear of the garden and these can be retained by the new owners if desired at a cost of only £10 per plot a year.
The size and versatile layout of this beautiful cottage makes it suitable for a young professional couple, a young or established family, or perhaps those looking to retire and downsize. The property is sold with the advantage of no upward chain. We recommend booking your viewing swiftly so as not to be disappointed, considerable interest is expected.
