4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

With room for the family to roam, for animals to graze, and green-fingered buyers to garden to their hearts content, this enchanting cottage dates back to the 15th century and is set in a southerly facing plot of 2.51 acres (1.01 hectares).

According to the listing, this characterful cottage dates back as far as the late-medieval period and as each owner has handed the baton to the next, it has been adapted and extended over the centuries. Much of the original character remains with a plethora of features including beams, flagstones and inglenook fireplaces and yet the house has been brought into the 21st century with comforts such as modern central heating via reclaimed period radiators and private drainage system. It is now a spacious, yet cosy family home.

The front door opens into a traditional cross passage hall with flagstone flooring, wattle and daub panels and steps down to the rear door where there’s a utility area / cloakroom with space for your washing machine. To the west end of the house is an impressive farmhouse style kitchen / dining room with original flagstone flooring, mullion window and large inglenook fireplace complete with original bread oven. The inglenook is fitted with a modern woodburning stove, whilst to one side is traditional walk-in pantry cupboard. Whilst the current vendors favour freestanding kitchen furniture to suit the feel of the property, there are country style fitted units with space for an electric range cooker, and room for your dishwasher. Across the hall is a cosier sitting room or snug, with further inglenook fireplace and beautiful four-panelled chamfered-beam ceiling. To one corner the oak stairs rise to the first floor. Beyond the sitting room is a further larger living room with dual aspect windows and a door opening to the garden on the south side, perfect for the warmer months.

The first floor is as full of character as you would expect. The master bedroom on the east side of the house has a superb, vaulted ceiling and far-reaching views over the gardens and land. An attractive en suite shower room has been created to one corner, with lovely use of natural wood and travertine stone. At the west end of the house is a further en suite bedroom. This en suite has a pretty, stone squint window and is fitted with shower cubicle, wash hand basin and concealed cistern WC. There are two further characterful bedrooms with mullion windows, and a beautifully modernised family bathroom with freestanding bath, separate double shower cubicle with dual head controls including overhead rain shower, WC and wash hand basin. The bathroom has both underfloor heating making it cosy underfoot and a chrome ladder style towel radiator. Along the landing is a walk-in store room or cupboard, which has in the past also doubled as a study / office space.
