CHARACTER VICTORIAN COTTAGE WITH THREE RECEPTION ROOMS, KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, SECLUDED GARDEN, GARAGE & PARKING
This substantial extended Victorian detached cottage offers versatile accommodation with a kitchen/dining room and three further reception rooms. The property is set in a desirable location and is a short distance from the town centre making it ideal for walking to school and all the local amenities.
The cottage is approached through a wrought iron pedestrian gate into the front courtyard garden with door to entrance porch with tiled floor. The front door opens into the hall with ground floor cloakroom, stairs with turned spindles and newels to first floor and doors to the dual aspect kitchen/dining room which is in over 7 metres long, with French doors out to the garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of base and eye-level units with plentiful work surfaces, integrated dishwasher, and space for American style fridge/freezer. A particular feature is the bespoke 1 ½ bowl sink unit inset into wooden cupboard and drawers. The range cooker is included and has a cooker hood above. This is a lovely space for gathering around the table.
The sitting room has a feature fireplace with wood burning stove and two sash windows with view over the garden. This space opens into the snug area with exposed brick chimney breast and sash window to the front aspect. A door leads through to the utility room with Belfast sink and plumbing and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. From this space you can access the study which is currently being used as a playroom. A further door from the utility gives access to the over sized garage which has a pitched roof for storage, power points and lighting.
The first-floor landing has a front aspect window as well as a Velux window and access to the loft, giving additional natural light. The principal bedroom offers views across the garden and beyond to the town with a splendid view of the Church tower. There are built in floor to ceiling wardrobes either side of the chimney breast. Bedroom two is front aspect with a feature fireplace. Bedroom three is rear aspect benefitting from the views and has an additional hatch to the second loft space. Bedroom four is currently being used as a study. The bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom with panel bath with shower over, pedestal basin and close coupled WC.
Externally the property enjoys a beautiful sunny aspect garden with patio that runs across the rear of the property. The garden has been landscaped with a number of areas to include a sunken fire pit area, pond and shaded areas along with a central lawn. In the bottom corner of the garden is a shed and opposite corner has a useful pedestrian gate. There is an abundance of planting with a cottage garden feel.
