Welcome to The Cottage
As you approach the front of this delightful, imposing stone-built traditional family home, the charm and character is fully evident. It is beautifully presented and is wonderfully welcoming with a cottage style gate providing access to the garden path which leads to the traditional farmhouse style door.
As you arrive into the entrance hall, doors to both sides offer access into the first two reception rooms, both situated on the front ensuring they enjoy exceptional amounts of natural light via their south facing windows.
To the eastern corner of the home lies the dining room with charming inglenook fireplace containing a multi-fuel burner. This combined with delightful hardwood floors, deep skirting boards and generous high ceilings make this a wonderfully homely room full of character. The double glazed sliding sash window with working panels and inset wood panelling offers exceptional countryside views which as you will see is a common theme throughout the home.
Across the hall, lies the living room which is of a pleasant size with dual aspect windows; one facing front and south, the second facing west both ensuring this room is wonderfully light and airy. A multi- fuel burner set within a beautiful large inglenook fireplace provides a delightful focal point and makes this a fantastic cosy family room. The rustic stone surround and stone flagged hearth compliment the property perfectly. The wood burner can also contribute to the underfloor heating which lies in the extension which is accessed via a set of predominately glazed French doors.
From the moment you walk in to this open plan kitchen dining room, the exceptional views to the rear are very apparent; with rolling countryside, stone walling and woodland as far as the eye can see. The dining area is a generous size, perfect for a family sized dining table and space to socialise. Dual aspect windows allow natural light to stream in with additional French doors to the rear leading to an ideal outside space for a table and chairs enjoying the exceptional views. A veranda makes this a lovely place to sit and enjoy the views even on warm evenings in the rain.
Stone flagged flooring in the dining area leads to attractive light tiles in the kitchen area which it is open to with a solid wood breakfast bar creating a nice divide.
The kitchen itself has a generous array of counter top space as well as a central island, all with plenty of storage beneath. A delightful Range oven is contained within another very charming inglenook fireplace. There is modern spotlighting to the ceiling and a two bowl ceramic sink positioned in front of one of two windows within the kitchen area; both enjoying the same exceptional view.
To the east of the kitchen, lies the utility room which contains the oil-fired boiler, additional cabinet storage space, natural light via a Velux window and also provides access into the ground floor WC with charming stained glass window, contemporary bowl sink with mixer tap mounted on to the sill and chrome finish ladder style heated towel rail.
From the central hallway, stairs lead to the first floor.
Four Double Bedrooms with Exceptional Views
A traditional split Northumbrian landing greets you at the top of the stairs, with the first door on the right leading to the principal bedroom. This is one of our favourite rooms of the house, it has an ornate fireplace with slate hearth, high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and two sliding sash windows offering fine south facing outlook over the village green to the south. Double doors lead through to a dressing area offering plenty of storage, this in turn leads through to the en-suite bathroom.
The en-suite is fully tiled with a wet room rainwater style shower and contemporary round bath from which beautiful green views can be enjoyed. A chrome finish heated towel rail, large wall mounted mirror, modern spotlighting to the ceiling and contemporary wall mounted basin with storage beneath finish this room off perfectly.
Lying adjacent to the en-suite, lies a further double bedroom with a cleverly recessed alcove providing the perfect frame for a bed. This room shares the same exceptional views out to the north as the en-suite and benefits from a drop down ladder which leads to the first section of the loft which is boarded, carpeted and fully plastered.
Across the corridor lies a further bedroom with two windows sharing the view to the rear. From this room, stairs lead up to a loft room with additional storage and two Velux windows to the east; this would make a great home office or a potential guest room.
To the south west aspect of the home lies the fourth double bedroom with south facing sliding sash window offering plenty of natural light and attractive views over the village green and rolling countryside beyond.
The final room on this floor is the family bathroom; it is a good size and contains three piece white suite, shower over the bath, low level WC and basin with storage beneath.
Beautiful & Well Maintained Gardens
To the south lies an attractive quaint front garden with cottage style gate, predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by stone walling. Overlooking the village green, this is a wonderful place to sit.
To the west lies the access round to the rear of the property where double gates provide access to a large attractive driveway parking area suitable for multiple vehicles.
To the rear of this lies the main lawned gardens. From here the views can truly be admired for what they are, and that is a 180 degree panoramic green outlook of stunning green fields and trees. A gravelled sunken seating area with pergola above offers an ideal place to sit and enjoy the surrounding scenery. Various shrubs and flowers add colour, interest and personalisation to these stunning gardens.
In addition to an external gardeners toilet there is also a large workshop/ garage with natural light, broadband, power and heating via a log burner as well as a large shed and additional wood store.
