A superb detached period cottage that has been the programme of careful and considerate renovation by the current owners so as to retain as much of the period character and charm, to include oak exposed timbers, wattle and daub internal walls, Norfolk slide windows, oak internal doors and exposed timber floors to the first floor.
The property was originally a timber framed barn that was converted to two thatched farm cottages by 1800, and appears as such on the 1801 Census, with it having black weather boarding externally and wattle and daub internal walls. An extension was added plus the annexe in the mid-20th Century.
The solid oak entrance door leads to the reception hall, where the character and quality of the property become immediately apparent, with exposed oak timbers and quarry tiling to the floor. There is a cloakroom off the hall. The sitting room is to the rear of the cottage, with windows to 2 aspects, a brick fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove, plus a door giving access to the study. The dining/family room has windows to 2 aspects plus a fireplace with a multi-fuel stove. A particular feature of the accommodation is the family kitchen/breakfast room having views over paddocks, with granite work surfaces and oak cupboards, a double deep Butler style sink, an Aga (oil fired), plus a tiled floor.
To the first floor there are 4 bedrooms plus a spacious bathroom with a 'claw and ball' roll top bath plus a separate shower cubicle.
The detached annexe comprises an open-plan living/bedroom area with a vaulted ceiling and French doors overlooking paddocks, plus a separate kitchen and shower room and there is under floor heating throughout the annexe.
The cottage style gardens are extremely well stocked with flowers and shrubs, there is a large lawned area, 2 patios, plus a children's soft play area. To the front of the cottage there is off-road parking and there is also potential for additional parking and a timber framed cart-lodge, subject to the necessary planning permission
