Mulberry Tree Cottage is thought to have been built originally as two cottages in circa 1705 and offers superb, flexible accommodation with spacious, light rooms.
Exposed beams and timbers have been painted to match the neutral wall colours throughout, this theme is consistent throughout the property all of which is presented in a light and elegant style.
Approached over a gravelled driveway the house is entered via a covered front door. The hallway opens onto a bright dining room with exposed Cotswold stone wall and double French doors to the rear garden. From the dining room, double doors open to a large sitting room with dual aspect windows, French doors and central feature Minster stone fireplace. The beautifully fitted kitchen has granite worktops with central island unit/breakfast bar and heated stone floor. Connected to the kitchen is a utility/boot room which has a side access stable door giving space to clean muddy boots after a country walk.
From the hallway the main staircase leads up to the master bedroom which has built in wardrobes and an en-suite with bath and shower. There is a further double bedroom and well laid out family bathroom with freestanding bath and large walk-in rainfall shower.
To the end of the entrance hall there is a fourth bedroom currently used as an office with its own access from the driveway. A second staircase from the hall leads to a smart double bedroom with Velux roof lights and overlooks the front driveway and garden. The separate access would lend itself well to working from home, an annexe for a relative/teenager or as part of guest accommodation.
Set to the rear of the cottage is the south west facing landscaped gardens. The rear wall of the cottage has a range of established climbing roses offering an attractive display in early summer. The private rear gardens are level and beautifully manicured with a flagstone and gravelled seating area bordered by lawns, well stocked flower beds and a variety of fruit trees. There is a further lawn area, with pond and the ancient Mulberry Tree that sits majestically at the end of the garden, from which the house takes its name.
At the very end of the garden, with access directly off the lane are two connected timber outbuildings/garages of 460 sq ft currently used as a gym/stores. A planning application has been granted for conversion to a self-contained, one bedroom residential annexe, and ancillary to the main dwelling.
