A beautiful double fronted Grade II listed cottage believed to have been built in the early 1800's. Set in a peaceful countryside location opposite the local church in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The current owners have completely refurbished this property throughout to provide an idyllic and homely cottage feel whilst retaining and enhancing all period features.
They have also spent some considerable time, expense and effort transforming the garden into an absolute delight with floral beds with border shrubs, manicured lawn and fully powered home office. You approach the property along a private road and enter through the front door. Once inside the hallway provides access to the living room, dining room, a useful storage cupboard and stairs to the first floor. The living room is a very comfortable place to relax with a beautiful decoratively large Bath stone feature fireplace with log burner and window looking towards the church.
The kitchen is stylishly fitted with new wall and floor units with worktop, inset sink drainer, integrated fridge, freezer, dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven with extractor, downlights and pendant lights. The opening leads to the dining room with beautiful views of the garden through the full-height glazed gable end with double doors opening onto a patio seating area.
Next to the dining room you find a shower room with large walk-in glazed shower cubicle, sink on vanity unit, WC and storage cupboard. Climbing the stairs to the first floor the landing provides access to all bedrooms and bathroom. There are two double bedrooms, with bedroom two providing built-in storage cupboards, and a single bedroom. The bathroom is fitted with bath, sink on vanity unit and WC.
Externally the idyllic cottage rear garden extends to approx. 80' in length. This garden has recently been completely transformed and is a testament to the hard work that has been put in. To the outside of the house is a stone slab laid patio seating/dining area offering space for alfresco cooking and dining. The lawned garden then leads you past well stocked floral beds with shrubs and small trees where you can take in the countryside views, birdsong and light at different times of the day. To the rear of the garden you find a hidden gem with a wooden constructed home office with power and internet providing a nice quiet sanctuary for those working from home. Outside of the home office is a further stone laid seating area offering complete privacy.
This property is situated in a private road leading to St. Martin's Court which is a now converted former brewery. It sits opposite St. Michael's church which was re-built in the 1800's and is the final resting place of Sir Harry Patch, the last remaining survivor of WWI.
