Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Quietly positioned at the end of a NO-THROUGH COUNTRY LANE and set against a backdrop of mature woodland and grass pasture it must be hard to find a more QUINTESSENTIAL example of an English country cottage.

Possibly the only way in which this most AMAZING offering could be further enhanced is to learn that the beautifully tended cottage GARDEN IS IN FACT MAINTAINED WITHIN THE RENT, making this charming Period cottage ideal as either a quiet full time home or maybe a perfect weekend bolthole?

The picture postcard country cottage is BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED and offers spacious and light accommodation with high ceilings together with all of the usual Period features associated with properties of this type and age.

Of particular note is the SPACIOUS MAIN RECEPTION room with its BEAUTIFUL OUTLOOK across the garden and offering a superb flexibility of layout with dining and seating areas as well as fine-looking exposed timbers and an especially impressive inglenook fireplace complete with inset LOGBURNER.

The neutrally decorated cottage also offers a good-sized fitted kitchen with a useful range of fitted units, oven and hob, alongside a dedicated UTILITY /BOOT ROOM, separate cloakroom and a charming bathroom with a contemporary styled BATH SUITE in addition to a WALK-IN SHOWER.

From the inner hallway a dog leg staircase rises to the first floor landing and provides access to the bedroom accommodation comprising THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS each with attractive elevated views across the garden and surrounding countryside.

The garden and grounds are a particularly noteworthy feature of the property, being beautifully planted out in an English country cottage style and FULLY MAINTAINED WITHIN THE RENT.

To the side of the property is a natural stone GARAGE /WORKSHOP with power and lighting and a generously proportioned GATED PARKING area.

Further benefits of this exceptional opportunity include oil fired CENTRAL HEATING and a Gigaclear ULTRAFAST BROADBAND connection point.
