Welcome to Riding Cottage
Wooden double gates provide access to a private gravel driveway which offers plenty of space for parking multiple vehicles. Upon entering the driveway you are immediately greeted by this attractive and imposing family home. It is well sheltered by tall hedging ensuring a good level of privacy and greenery, with mature trees to the rear providing an idyllic backdrop to this delightful property. An open timber porch with stone flagged floor and fully tiled roof offers a visually appealing and welcoming entrance providing a glimpse of the character enjoyed within the home itself.
Immaculately Presented Open Plan Living
A partially glazed oak door leads into a delightfully spacious hallway with walk off matting followed by wooden laminate flooring. Decorative panelling to dado height covers the walls adding to the charm of this area which also benefits from two storage cupboards.
The first partially glazed door on the left leads into the living room with an exposed brick fireplace on tiled hearth with oak mantle. With picture rails, ceiling rose, coving and decorative panelling, this room gives a taste of the features to come throughout the property. Two uPVC windows ensure there is plenty of natural light giving this a lovely bright and airy feel.
To the rear of the living room, a wooden door provides access in to the study which again benefits from plenty of natural light and offers a nice and quiet place to work from home.
Across the hall from the living room, two contemporary partially glazed double doors provide an impressive entrance into the most notable and our favourite room of the house. With three sections including kitchen, dining area and sitting room, it flows seamlessly with all the sections beautifully open to each other. The wow factor of this area is further enhanced by the incredible amount of natural light from windows to all sides and French doors to two elevations.
The sitting room has an incredible amount of light from a central skylight with motorized blind. There are three additional windows within this room including a large set of French doors bordered by additional glazing. These external doors provide easy access to the patio in the rear garden, making it a perfect for entertaining or enjoying the delightful views over the garden.
As previously mentioned, this is open to the dining area which is another tremendously light space with a large window facing out to the front of the property. The dining area itself marries the sitting area to the impressive kitchen which has a generous array of storage including wall and floor mounted cabinets with display shelving and ample drawer space. There is space for a Range cooker with attractive patterned tiles behind creating a pleasing focal point. Further tiling which beautifully compliments the granite counter-tops beneath offers an attractive splash-back. This room also benefits from a 1.5 bowl sink with mixer tap, integrated dishwasher and an incredibly generously sized oak island with breakfast bar, additional storage within and low level lighting above. In addition, there is further modern spotlighting to the ceiling and another set of French doors which are again, bordered by glazing, drawing in lovely views of the garden into the kitchen.
Adjacent to the kitchen, lies the utility which in turn leads through to the ground floor WC with small contemporary basin with storage beneath, low level WC and tiling to dado height. This room also contains the boiler.
From the Hallway, stairs with decorative panelling and a quarter turn lead to the first floor gallery landing.
Spacious & Stunning Bedrooms
With oak spindled staircase and decorative panelling continuing from the lower hallway, this spacious landing blends perfectly with the style of the property.
The first room around the gallery landing is the principal bedroom which is of an incredibly generous size and benefits from a Juliet balcony which enjoys stunning raised views over the mature well landscaped gardens. Built in wardrobes provide a good amount of storage with mirror front to the centre. Decorative panelling to dado height and characterful picture rails giving this room a wonderfully welcoming finish. This principal bedroom has the added benefit of an en-suite with large walk in shower, basin with counter-top space and additional cabinet storage beneath, a mirror fronted medicine cabinet and a lovely tiled finish.
The next bedroom along the landing has dual aspect windows offering natural light from two elevations. There is an ornate fireplace with mosaic hearth matching that behind the Range downstairs. There is decorative panelling to an entire wall providing a lovely feature.
The third bedroom is the only single bedroom within the property, and lies to the front elevation of the home. This would make a great office, study or nursery.
The fourth bedroom is another generous double which, again, benefits from dual aspect through two windows offering plenty of natural light. There is another ornate fireplace with ornate mosaic hearth and panelling to dado height.
The final room on the first floor is the family bathroom. It has a curved, footed bath with central filling tap and hand held shower nozzle as well as low level WC, basin inset into the counter top with storage beneath and a large sliding door walk in shower as well as natural light via a privacy glazed window.
Lovely Lawned Garden with Beautiful Green Backdrop
Riding Cottage sits on a generous plot which, to the rear, is predominately laid to lawn. There are attractive mature borders filled with colourful flowers and plenty of greenery. A large flagged patio connects both the French doors from the lounge and the kitchen.
There are various fruit trees including apples and plums, a delightful stone water feature with surrounding rockery and a lovely elevated patio space which provides a great place to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings this quaint village offers.
To the rear of the plot it is wonderfully green and mature, this provides shelter as well as a pleasant outlook from the open plan living areas and stunning backdrop to the property itself. The garden is pleasantly secluded with high borders as well as new panelled fencing to one elevation
There is also a garage with remote operated rolling door shutter to the front and pedestrian access to the side; it has power sockets as well as storage on the roof frames above. An additional outhouse also provides a good amount of storage space.
