* Watch our walk-through video *
This beautiful property in its tranquil rural setting is a master class in combining old world charm and character with a bright modern and contemporary architect designed addition seamlessly fitting in to its magical setting of mature landscaped private and sheltered gardens. First impressions are of a sweet traditional stone cottage with climbing roses around the door and simple pathways through the flowers, but on closer inspection, a silver birch tree-lined avenue further along the road opens up to reveal the full extent of this very special property.
The original cottage has been totally renovated and extended to the rear and now incorporates a wonderful generous and homely cottage style kitchen/living- room featuring cream painted units and a sturdy centre island/breakfast counter. A full glass wall with double French doors out to the decking and garden complete the picture here. There is a separate more formal sitting-room with exposed stone walls, varnished timber floors and solid fuel cast iron stove located off the kitchen in the old cottage. To the far side of the kitchen, a door opens into the bedroom wing, fully carpeted, with its four double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite and the piece de resistance in the master bedroom which has its own walking wet room, dressing-room, is the double French doors leading out onto the covered veranda, ideal for that morning coffee, weather depending!!
Outside the mature and landscaped gardens extend to a very manageable half acre and are filled with year-round colour from blooming flowers and shrubs. At the bottom of the garden is a substantial purpose -timber built garden/potting shed with ample storage for all the bits and pieces. The gravel driveway to the side offers plenty of parking space and turning area.
All in all, words are inadequate to describe this unique property and we say that viewing in person is a must!
