Crooked Cottage is a Grade II Listed property we believe originally dating from the 17th Century. Constructed of flint with brick dressings under a thatch roof it was sympathetically extended in 2001 to provide a master bedroom suite and an enlarged kitchen/dining room.
The bespoke Mark Wilkinson kitchen provides the hub of the house with honed black granite and maple wood work surfaces, an Aga as well as a Neff combination oven, being double aspect
it is a particularly light room with leaded light windows and French doors over-looking and opening into the gardens. The Quarry tiled floor continues into the spacious entrance hall. The
cosy sitting room retains many of the original period features including beams to the ceiling and a delightful open fireplace. Access via a second staircase to the Master bedroom comprises
double aspect bedroom, a dressing room and shower room. All bedrooms have fireplaces, beams and fitted wardrobes. The large family bathroom also has a pretty Victorian fireplace.
The house is approached by a gravelled drive with enough parking for 4 cars. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with various climbers and shrubs. Side gated path leads to the very
large rear garden which is West facing, flanked on either side by paddocks and is largely laid to lawn with flower beds, a sundial with ornamental hedge and large fire pit. There is also a raised terrace with lighting to the side, sheltered by mature rose
bushes to 2 sides. The setting is absolutely stunning with rural views all around the property across fields to rolling hills beyond.
