THE PROPERTY

South Cottage is a fine example of how a historic property can be transformed into a wonderful home fit for the busy modern family without losing its cottage appeal.

The property boasts a spacious entrance hall, a sitting room and dining room which are full of character features including fireplaces with wood burning stoves, Double doors from the dining room open into the kitchen, which is a significant part of the recently added extension, with farmhouse style units, a wall of exposed Hamstone, a wood burning stove and several skylights and offers plenty of space for a family breakfast table as well as soft seating.

A tiled hallway leads to the boot room, a study can also be found in this part of the house which is ideal for those working from home. Also a beautifully appointed wet room which can be accessed from the boot room. On the first floor there are three well proportioned bedrooms, all of which benefit from built in storage. The central landing also gives access to the family bathroom and a large eaves storage cupboard.

OUTSIDE

South Cottage enjoys delightful gardens which total approximately 0.4 of an acre. South-facing pleasure gardens flank the property, connected by a well stocked flower walk, which offer wonderful places to relax, entertain or dine al fresco. An area of woodland offers the opportunity to realise a unique outdoor lifestyle with fantastic amenities including a chicken coop, tree house and camp fire area. There is also an enclosed area of lawn across the lane.

The double garage is an enormous asset to the property. Benefitting from power and light, the garage is accessed via twin electric up-and-over doors and provides ample storage space as well as under cover parking. The roof space has been converted to a useful media room and it is thought that the garage could easily be converted to a self-contained annexe, subject to any necessary consents.
