Cross Green Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed village house offering well-presented and versatile accommodation. The original timber framed and thatched cottage has been enhanced by a superb single storey extension which has significantly increased the accommodation and could possibly be utilised for Bed & Breakfast purposes or as an annexe if required. It has an independent front door in addition to connecting to the main house via the stunning reception hall which has floor to ceiling windows. The original part of the house has lots of original features including exposed wall and ceiling timbers, an inglenook fireplace with woodburner and some exposed brick floors. The current owners have created a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room extension to the rear with an Aga, custom-built units and a stable door opening onto an alfresco dining terrace. Three bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the ground floor within the single storey extension, whilst on the first floor of the original house there is a lovely characterful master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and adjoining dressing room/bedroom 5. Further occasional accommodation/office/studio is located above the double garage which has a cloakroom integral to the garage.

The property is approached via a 5-bar gate onto a gravelled parking infront of the double garage. The grounds of about 1.25 acres form an important feature comprising formal gardens and a lovely south-west facing terrace sheltered between the 2 wings of the house. The formal grounds give way to an expanse of lawn interspersed with a fine variety of trees and neatly tended hedging. There is also a small orchard, chicken run area, a delightful pond and wonderful far reaching views across neighbouring farmland.
