A charming extended five bedroom cottage set in the peaceful hamlet of Garford offering well-proportioned accommodation and affording a wealth of retained character features.
Fant Cottage was originally a farmworkers cottage dating back to the 17th century, extended over time it has now been transformed into a deceptively spacious home. It is well presented with generous living space to the ground floor and affords a wealth of character features including original tiled flooring, fireplaces, exposed timbers and timber latch and brace doors.
The accommodation on the ground floor includes a welcoming sitting room with feature fireplace, wall timbers and oak flooring. Open plan to the rear is the impressive half vaulted, glazed kitchen area with underfloor heating, and door leading to the rear garden with wonderful views of the countryside beyond. The kitchen is fitted with a range of hand built Crick House wall and base units with pippy oak worktops. There is an impressive Lacanche range cooker, built in larder fridge and freezer, and ‘behind unit’ space for dishwasher, washer and dryer. There is a door to a useful utilty/larder cupboard. In addition the ground floor accommodation includes two further sitting/reception rooms and a study, with original quarry floor tiles and focal fireplace.
From the entrance hall the stairs rise and turn to the first floor landing. The first floor accommodation comprises five bedrooms and a shower room and stunning family bathroom. The very generously proportioned master bedroom enjoys dual aspect windows.
The garden is to the rear of the cottage and accessed via a coach house style entrance which passes under the 3rd bedroom. A detached barn providing open parking below and further space for parking can be found to the rear of the house. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, enclosed by hedging and fencing. The far reaching views to the rear are stunning.
