Description

Purchase a little bit of local history! Farrons are delighted to offer for sale this substantial and charming period cottage situated in a much coveted rural village location, offering spacious and versatile accommodation measuring approximately 286 sq.m (3078 sq.ft), as stated on the energy performance certificate dated 25 October 2019. The property itself 'shouts out' a "feeling of times gone by" and includes many character features associated with a property of this era. There are exposed stone inglenook fireplaces and beams, original doors and quirky recesses, all of which can only be appreciated when seen. Belstone Cottage has been subject to significant change in the past and has been modernised and substantially extended from the original footprint, although it must be said that there is still room for further enhancement if required. Benefitting from modern additions such as double glazed windows and oil fired central heating, modern bathroom suites and kitchen units, the accommodation includes, on the ground floor: A Reception Hall and Living Room both graced with feature stone inglenook fireplaces, there is a separate Dining Room and large Sitting Room with French doors leading to the rear garden and a Kitchen/Breakfast Room with AGA cooker and walk-in pantry. In addition, there is a large Boot Room/Store, Utility Room and downstairs Shower Room. On the first floor, there is a Master Bedroom with En-Suite Bathroom, four further Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. Outside gets really interesting! Apart from the driveway, double garage and garden store, there is a large rear garden with additional enclosed kitchen garden for the keen home producer's. Beyond which there is the real surprise! A hidden garden, incorporating a swimming pool with timber summerhouse, a tennis court and additional wild garden area. Amazing?.... Yes, but it should be noted that this area is all in need of restoration in order to bring it up to full usable condition. Overall, this is in our opinion, an excellent opportunity, rarely available in the area and most definitely worth viewing. Appointments to view are strictly by arrangement, exclusively through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.
