DESCRIPTION

Shooters Green Cottage is a beautifully situated three-bedroom detached country property, occupying a tranquil setting. The cottage has rendered elevations under a pitch tiled roof. The Cottage benefits from lovely gardens with plenty of potential and would suit a small holder or equestrian family very well.

ACCOMMODATION

An entrance porch and door lead into the hallway with access to the kitchen, reception rooms and cloakroom. The country style kitchen is fitted with a range of matching wall and base units with wooden worktops, a single stainless steel sink with separate taps and a Rangemaster cooker, space for the washing machine and dishwasher. A side porch, which currently houses shelving, a freezer and a fridge has a door to the outside. From the hallway a door leads through to the dining room which has a double aspect, fireplace with a stone surround and tiled hearth. The conservatory is a real asset and provides light and spacious living space with doors to the garden and reception rooms. The sitting room has a wealth of character, with heavy beamed low ceilings and centres on a large open fireplace with inset wood burner, tiled hearth and stone surround with a heavy beam over. It is worth noting that there is restricted head height in this room. A staircase leads to the first floor. From the sitting room an inner hallway leads to the study, which has a window to the side and door to the conservatory. This is a versatile room with the potential to be a fourth bedroom.

Stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor where a spacious landing area is currently used as a dressing room. Steps lead up to a further landing where a door opens to the master bedroom suite, which has dual aspect windows overlooking the garden. The en suite has a shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin. Across the landing is a large family bathroom which comprises a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and WC. From the main landing there is access to bedroom three which is a good-sized light room with window to the side, large window sill and an inset shelf. Bedroom two also has a window with fine views.

OUTSIDE

Shooters Green Cottage is approached by a five-bar wooden gate and a sweeping driveway down to the property. There is a single garage and parking for a number of vehicles. The workshop is extremely spacious and has both power and light. A pathway leads around the entire property with access to a sizeable wood store and the garden area. The garden is a primarily laid to lawn with a number of mature trees, fruit trees, shrubs, a patio area and is enclosed by a mixture of wooden fences and mature hedging. The garden has a large greenhouse and a further productive vegetable patch. There is a well fenced large pond with a paved surround which provides a haven for wildlife. To the rear a garden gate leads through to the first paddock. A pathway through the orchard leads to the stable area with concrete hardstanding and road access. There is one larger stable and two smaller stables - ideal for ponies (please note that the concrete base has a crack, which prospective buyers may deem requires attention). From the stable block there is access to two further paddocks.

Directly opposite the entrance to Shooters Green Cottage is a metal five bar gate, which provides access into the larger field, this has been divided into two paddocks with post and rail fencing and there is a field shelter.
