DESCRIPTION

6 Summerlands Cottages is a Grade II Listed thatched cottage enjoying a sunny aspect with a large garden. Over recent years the property has served as a successful rental property/holiday home but would equally make a charming character home. It has been well maintained by the current vendors, having recently been decorated throughout, whilst retaining the charm and character of the original cottage, including an inglenook fireplace and exposed beams.

A stable door opens through to the entrance lobby with built in floor to ceiling cupboards providing ample space for storing outside wear. A panelled door opens through to the kitchen comprising solid wood worktops over a comprehensive range of fitted cupboard and drawer units, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer with space for a fridge/freezer, fitted double oven and inset hob with granite splashback and extractor over. There is also a good sized larder cupboard for additional storage.

The generous reception room is comfortable with plenty of character, including an impressive inglenook fireplace with exposed brick and window seat, along with an oak floor, which continues through to the conservatory providing plenty of space for dining or a further reception area overlooking the garden.

On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom, accessed via painted plank doors from the landing with exposed beams. Both bedrooms are to the rear enjoying views along the length of the gardens and adjoining fields; bedroom 1 is a spacious double and bedroom 2 includes a linen cupboard. Both bedrooms are served by a family bathroom comprising a Villeroy and Boch white suite incorporating a shower over the bath.

OUTSIDE

To the front is a slab and gravel parking space edged by picket fencing, whilst the extensive rear garden is a fantastic feature, landscaped for easy maintenance, predominantly laid to lawn with flower beds, borders, mature shrubs and trees, along with patios to enjoy the surroundings.

SERVICES

Mains electricity and water. Private drainage.
