A superb four bedroom detached renovated period property with gardens in this popular village.

The property has been extensively and tastefully refurbished, offering contemporary convenience whilst maintaining a wealth of period character features. Dating back to 1866, the house was originally two separate Victorian cottages although the inglenook fireplaces are believed to be much older.

The sitting room is to the front of the property with fitted carpet and a glorious inglenook fireplace and wood burning fire with a recess for ample log storage. Adjacent is the bright and spacious dining room, which is laid to carpet with a similarly stunning open inglenook fireplace. The garden room has Travertine tiled flooring throughout with both underfloor and radiator heating, a versatile space ideal for entertaining, relaxing, or as an additional reception room. The boot room has wooden floorboards and direct access to the garden. From the garden room a door leads to the utility room and access to the downstairs cloakroom. The utility room has both wall and base units, oak worktops, Belfast sink and space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and a small fridge. The kitchen really is the "heart" of the home. An expansive space with ample wall and base units, solid oak worktops, timber flooring. This room is flooded with natural light from its triple aspect, and has French doors to the garden. The stairs from the inner hallway leads to the first floor landing re-configured by the current owners and provides a useful study area. The original part of the cottage accommodates two large bedrooms to the front of the property with a very generous family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. The master bedroom is of a generous size with original wooden floorboards and working fireplace and built-in wardrobe. To the rear of the property in the former annexe are two further bedrooms and a second upstairs bathroom.
The property is approached from the side of the house with ample driveway parking extending beyond double hardwood gates. A side gate leads from the driveway in to the rear garden with a gravelled entertaining area which is south facing with steps leading up to the lawn area with hedgerow and fence boundaries. A gate at the top of the lawned area leads to a small orchard with several apple, pear and plum trees and a large workshop/shed and log store. A further gate leads into the vegetable garden with various beds, greenhouse, tool shed and attractive summer house.
