- Attractive Detached Home
- Delightful Mature Gardens
- 1/4 Acre Plot
- Rural Views
This detached home sits proudly on a delightful quarter acre plot of well-maintained mature gardens surrounded by rural countryside providing stunning views. The accommodation is deceptively spacious and benefits from exceptional amounts of natural light and character throughout.
A five-bar gate supported by two stone pillars leads up the gravel driveway where the colour and beauty of the garden can first be admired. A hard path leading past the outbuildings, and up to the workshop/office also leads to the front entrance to the property.
Through this partially glazed uPVC door, you arrive in an attractive and extremely spacious hallway with staircase to the first floor, open arch leading to some bedrooms and the main bathroom and doors to the breakfasting kitchen and living room.
The living room is a generous sized room which has a good ceiling height ensuring its feels wonderfully spacious. A stone fireplace with flagged hearth and wood burner is positioned in the corner of the room. This provides a lovely focal point as well as a welcoming cosy feel, perfect for spending time as a family. To the south, the living room is open to the sunroom which is fully glazed on the south and west face. This allows both rooms to benefit from natural light streaming in, they also draw in the attractive views over the exceptionally colourful gardens and rural countryside beyond. An additional south facing window between the rooms further enhances the natural light and airy feel of the living room.
The sunroom itself has a tiled floor and south facing French doors which provide easy access out to the generous gardens, providing a lovely place to sit and enjoy the garden both outside and in.
The breakfasting kitchen, also accessed via the main hallway, is another generous room which benefits from an array of wall and floor mounted cabinets, cupboards, drawers, open shelving and display plate racks. There is plumbing for a washing machine, space for a Range oven, 1.5 bowl ceramic sink with drainer and mixer tap above and a traditional wooden floor. Three windows offer exceptional amounts of natural light, adding to the sense of space experienced throughout the property.
To the rear of the kitchen, a door leads through into the dining room with feature fireplace. A large south facing bay window benefits from attractive views of the garden making this a wonderfully peaceful place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and a book. An additional west facing window further enhances the natural light and countryside views. Coving to the ceiling and deep skirting boards add to the character and charm of this versatile room.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
From the other side of the central hallway through an open arch lie two comfortable double bedrooms. The first offers an east facing window. The second is fantastically spacious and overlooks the bulk of the gardens facing south.
Between these two rooms lies the family bathroom with large sliding door walk in shower, three-piece suite with pedestal style basin and low level WC, wall mounted mirror, ladder style heated towel rail and additional radiator. There is in-built mirror fronted storage unit, tiled floor, predominately tiled walls and shower panels behind the shower.
A further cupboard lies in the hallway with boiler, offering generous storage space.
Stairs lead to the first floor.
On the landing there is a double airing cupboard and a door leading to the first floor double bedroom. This room has the best views in the house, stretching from the green fields and tree lined backdrop in the east to the property's beautiful gardens in the south, with rural countryside evident for miles to the south-west. The room itself has a combination of mirror fronted and double door wardrobes, storage into the eaves, and also an en-suite bathroom with two piece suite and sliding door walk in shower.
Delightful South West Facing Garden
Gardeners Cottage is a very apt name for a home with such a fully stocked, colourful and well thought out mature garden. With wildlife habitats created to increase biodiversity, it is a haven for us and the local wildlife. The garden is densely populated with a varied range of established borders filled with trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, herbs and wildflowers for year on year structure, colour and interest.
Attractive bark pathways neatly meander through the flowers providing access to a quaint summer house, gardener's shed, greenhouses and polytunnel all of which offer great spaces for growing and convenient storage. The garden also benefits from a composting range and enriched soil which has been generated through routine composting and mulching. Lying adjacent to the house, a generous flagged patio provides a great space for seating and al fresco dining, perfectly positioned to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings.
Accessed via the attractive gated entrance is a generous driveway parking area suitable for multiple cars which provides easy access to both the front and rear of the property.
