The cottage dates back to around 1780 and has plenty of character as well as a more industrial extension with large open plan kitchen and dining leading through crittall style doors to a big garden, perfect for entertaining!
The kitchen is bespoke Sebastian Cox style with plenty of storage in low level cupboards, drawers and shelving. It has a butchers block island with stool seating, a Smeg range cooker with two electric ovens and 7 gas hobs, Fisher Paykal dishwasher drawers and a large fridge freezer with wine fridge.
The dining table seats up to 8 with bench seating on one side and there is a Samsung Frame TV (which can be disguised as a framed painting) hung in the bookshelves behind.
An original flint and brick glazed well leads you through into the utility room with microwave, utility sink, washing machine and tumble dryer as well as a whole wall of floor to ceiling storage (also housing the combi boiler and fuse box).
The hall room is the entrance room to the house from the front door and has two enclosed cupboards for shoes etc. and a desk for working. There is a wood burner in this space but it is not installed so currently can not be used.
The BT hub is also here providing internet/wifi.
Off the hall room there is a WC with mid level cistern and basic and housing the gas and electricity meters.
Through to the lounge there is a large inglenook fireplace, which sadly doesn't draw for an open fire so is fitted with lights.
There is a large television with BT box (including Sky Sport) and a 3 seater feather filled sofa and love seat.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms - currently configured into a large master bedroom with kingsize bed, hanging and drawer storage and windows to the front and rear, a single with raised Loaf children's storage bed and seperate walk in cupboard with drawers and shelves or bed linen, another larger bedroom with single bed, vintage lockers and desk and a carpeted double bedroom overlooking the garden.
The family bathroom has bespoke joinery housing lots of storage, an original French freestanding bath and a separate rainfall shower.
The garden has a decked area with seating around a fire pit, dining area for 6 with bbq, external tap and power sockets, large banked lawn area, brick patio with seating for 4 and a powered outbuilding to the side of the house with plenty of space for storing bikes, lawnmower etc.
There is underfloor heating throughout the kitchen and dining areas as well as the bathroom upstairs and the rest of the house is heated with gas central heating by way of reconditioned column radiators.
The utilities run from from a combi boiler, mains electric and gas.
There is a driveway to the right for off street parking for one car and plenty more parking on street.
