THE PROPERTY

Cherry Tree Cottage is a fantastic village home which provides the benefits of a detached family home within the walls of a characterful, end-of-terrace cottage. Built as part of the Duke of Bedford's estate in 1867, the property adjoins the terrace via only two rooms and is Grade II Listed. A significant programme of sympathetic improvement and extension has created a stylish, comfortable and convenient home for the busy modern family with attractive, quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

 

The enormous appeal of the beautifully proportioned accommodation can be felt upon stepping through the front door into the delightful reception rooms which both benefit from wood burners and, owing to the south-facing aspect of the front of the house, enjoy a wealth of natural light. The extension work is most noticeable in the kitchen/breakfast room with attractive, contemporary units beneath a black granite work surface and underfloor heating. This is continued through the supporting utility/laundry room and the boot room. Also on the ground floor is the study, one of only 2 rooms with a party wall to the terrace, and a useful cloakroom. On the first floor where there are 3 generous and light bedrooms, the largest of which benefits from an ensuite shower room. There is also a family bathroom, and ample storage in the large airing cupboard. Wonderful country views can be enjoyed from the first floor, taking in the Bride Valley across to Puncknowle.

OUTSIDE

Cherry Tree Cottage enjoys a large, primarily level plot which enjoys a south facing aspect. The property is approached from the public road via a private drive, which leads through a 5 bar gate to a parking and turning area for several cars. Much of the garden is arranged to the rear including a paved sun terrace abutting the house, a large, established lawn, apple trees and soft fruit cages, ensuring a charming environment for spending time out of doors. A further asset is the range of useful outbuildings which include a carport with store room and loft with power and light, a garden store/tool shed and a large workshop, perfect for use as a hobby space.
