Ivy Cottage is a very attractive period cottage, with more recent additions, which once formed part of the Duke of Wellington Estate. It is situated in a quiet setting off a small no-through country lane, overlooking its own land, farmland and Sandford Springs golf course. Period features within the property include exposed timber framing from the original cottage, open fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. Of particular note is the oak beamed drawing room and most of the windows to the front are leaded windows. The drawing room leads to a further sitting room and a study. The kitchen is situated to the back of the house and therefore benefits from south westerly views over its adjoining paddocks. A hard wood conservatory provides further living space and interacts strongly with the garden and view. The first floor has an impressive main bedroom with wonderfully high ceilings and many exposed oak beams. As with the drawing room the room spans the depth of this part of the house and so has views to the front and back. There is a dressing room/bedroom 5 accessible from the main bedroom. Three further bedrooms and a cloakroom complete the accommodation on the first floor. There is also a large store room at this level giving a great deal of flexibility to the accommodation. The house lends itself to further enlargement, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Outside there is a very attractive garden, comprising formal lawns, with stocked herbaceous borders, numerous shrubs and trees and productive vegetable gardens. The outbuildings include a large store/workshop, garage and greenhouse. The paddocks of approximately 2 acres adjoin the formal gardens and are enclosed by post and rail fencing. There is a separate access to the paddocks to the north of the cottage. The gardens and grounds enjoy a south westerly aspect.
