Description


A rare opportunity to purchase a charming detached country cottage, situated in one of the area's most sought-after locations, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The original cottage which we believe dates back to the late 1700's has been subject to considerable improvement, lovingly cared for by the present owners and set in a stunning hillside position within beautiful mature gardens and woodland, amounting to some 2.4 acres. This lovely stone cottage has been extended in previous times although still retains many period features associated with a property of this age and benefits from upvc double glazing, oil fired central heating and superb solid Oak floors on the ground floor. The property is approached via a sweeping tree lined driveway which leads up to the extensive parking area and Detached Barn/Garage (This has a number of potential uses including an Annexe/Air bnb/Home Office or Gym), subject to any necessary planning consent required). The location and gardens will form a large part of the property's appeal and will clearly attract those with a keen interest in gardening and the outdoors. A set of steps lead from the driveway up through a pretty rockeried garden to the entrance porch and on entering the property one immediately gets a sense of what lies ahead. The generous accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes on the ground floor: Reception Hall, Lounge with beamed ceiling and feature fireplace with inset wood burner, Sitting Room again with a feature log burner, Dining Room, Re-fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Utility Room and Cloakroom. On the first floor there is a Master Bedroom with En-Suite Shower Room, four further Bedrooms, a Family Bathroom and separate W.C. As mentioned, the property is surrounded by delightful formal gardens and natural woodland which will only be truly appreciated by way of an on-site inspection. Viewing arrangement are strictly by appointment and exclusively through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.
