3 Bedroom House Under Offer

The Cottage is a truly delightful mix of 18th century ex farm building and luxurious modern fittings. From the moment you arrive on the gravel driveway at the front door, it's 'just right'. Everywhere you look character ranging from rough hewn timbers to flagstone floors raises a smile, enforcing the feeling that this is something rather special. The little details like crittal windows with oak separating bars set it apart from the more pedestrian iterations of historic property. And unusually for a cottage, the overall feeling is of great space and great light. The proportions are excellent too, so it's a very easy house to use. And for those looking to work from home but perhaps not inside the house, there is a detached double garage with power connected as well as a garden large enough to house a 'pod' if wished - and with Fibreoptic broadband in this village your productivity will be as good as anywhere.

The entrance to this house really sets the tone. A ledged timber front door under a large oak lintel opens into a hall with flagstone floor, stone wall in front and beams overhead. Cast your eyes left and the living room draws you in. The immaculate stone floor contrasts delightfully with the timber windows and beams, with pristine white walls between. It's such a positive space; windows to two sides join glazed double doors (accessing the terrace and rear garden) to the third in making it deliciously light and airy, flattering the already good space, and there's even a window seat. The main focus is a wood burning stove within a deep, Inglenook fireplace, topped off with a beautiful thick timber lintel that reinforces that feeling of a special, historic house. Across the hall, the dining room is even larger. Those same flagstones found on the hall floor continue through. Another Inglenook fireplace takes centre stage, this time also containing the remains of a bread oven (complete with iron door and a light inside!) alongside the wood burner. And windows to two sides provide the same high level of natural light, with one of them also containing a window seat. Adjacent, another inner hall leads through to the stairs on one side and an immaculate cloak room on the other. The cloak room will initially confuse you! An external door complete with stain glass window has been partially boxed in to create the room, in the process creating an intriguing and unique feature. And next door, the kitchen opens out perfectly with gorgeous wall and ceiling timbers framing a classic kitchen. The integration of the kitchen and the cottage is pleasing to see, with obvious attention to detail everywhere. A long run of work surfaces provide excellent prep space, and wall and base units provide masses of storage that's further embellished by the understairs cupboard. A door to the side also leads out to the terrace, although this is definitely one through which most will need to duck!
