Description

This lovely cottage is a gem of a period property and is believed to date back to the mid-14th Century and has a wealth of features to include exposed wall and ceiling timbers understood to have originally been selected for nearby Mere Hall. The current owners have renovated and improved the property within the last five years to include rewiring, the installation of an oil fired central heating system, new kitchen and luxury family bathroom. The panelled front door opens into the reception hall which has a tiled floor, exposed beams, stairs to the first floor and feature leaded light borrowed windows to the adjacent sitting room. The sitting room has beautiful exposed timbers, oak flooring, wall lights and a window overlooking the front garden. There is also a feature brick fireplace with a wood burning stove. A stable door from the hallway leads through to the breakfast kitchen which is dual aspect and has oak fronted kitchen units and a tiled floor. There is a recess with a Rangemaster oven with an extractor over, an integral Neff dishwasher and an island unit with a breakfast bar and pull-out saucepan drawers.

On the first floor the dual aspect master bedroom overlooks the lovely gardens and has exposed floor timbers, wall and ceiling beams, fitted wardrobes and a feature fireplace. There are two further good sized bedrooms both with exposed beams and a stylish family bathroom which has a white suite with a free standing roll top bath and a separate rainwater shower cubicle together with a stainless steel wall mounted heated towel rail.
