Property Description

Constructed in the late eighteenth/early nineteenth century and later extended, this picturesque Grade II listed property is comprised of four two/three story wings around a wonderful central courtyard. This unique property combines a four double-bedroom main dwelling with a two double-bedroom annex, plus an additional three large attic rooms offering very spacious and versatile accommodation, perfect for a family, and with excellent income potential. The cottage itself is predominantly the south wing and is comprised of, on the ground floor, a kitchen, dining room, family room, a sitting room and a utility room, a large storeroom and workshop, a wine cellar, and a conservatory and on the first floor, a family bathroom and four double-bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, the master suite also having a walk-in wardrobe. Additionally, on the first floor and in mainly the north wing, is the spacious self-contained annex comprising of a kitchen, dining room, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom, and on the top floor there are three large, interlinked attic rooms all with dormer windows providing natural light. The property feels warm and welcoming despite its generous proportions and benefits from oil-fired central heating. A viewing is essential to fully appreciate all that this wonderful property has to offer.

The rustic entrance door opens into the central courtyard which has a wonderful, cobbled floor and a possibly original water pump and stone trough making interesting features. Off the courtyard there is an L-shaped wine cellar and a large storeroom, currently used as a charcuterie with an attached workshop. The main entrance hallway, in the south wing, has a convenient ground-floor lavatory with a WC and basin, a cloakroom, a cupboard, a door to the rear garden and a staircase to the first floor. The fabulous kitchen has an extensive range of fitted units and matching wall cabinets in a cream, country-kitchen style, with ample worktop and cupboard space together with plenty of room for a table and seating, perfect for casual dining. A fan-oven with a ceramic hob and integral filter hood above and a wonderful oil-fired Aga range oven provide the excellent cooking facilities, and there is a ceramic double sink, an integrated fridge/freezer and space with plumbing beneath the worktop for a dishwasher. A stunning, separate dining room makes a grand venue for a formal dinner party, and a cosy family room makes a comfortable social space with a door to the courtyard and French doors to the east terrace. A large utility room has worktops and storage units, a sink and the oil boiler for the central heating and hot water system, and a second hallway has a staircase up to the annex. A very spacious sitting room is filled with light from dual-aspect windows and French doors to the formal garden and a wood-burning stove, in an inset fireplace, makes a wonderful feature and focal point for the room.

Upstairs on the first floor is the master bedroom suite, comprising of a huge master bedroom with two windows flooding the room with light, a walk-in wardrobe providing an abundance of clothes storage, and a spacious en-suite bathroom containing an elegant centre-fill bath with a shower attachment, a separate shower, a pedestal basin, a WC, and a heated towel rail. There are three further excellent double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and another currently used a study, ideal for those working from home, and a family bathroom completes the principal accommodation containing a bath, a separate shower a basin and a WC. The annex is accessed by two staircases, in the east and west wings. It offers spacious and self-contained accommodation with a well-equipped kitchen, a dining room, a spacious living room with a small adjoining study, two double-bedrooms and a bathroom containing a bath, a pedestal basin, and a WC. A staircase from the west wing provides access to the three, spacious, interlinked attic rooms which are fully boarded, and each have dormer windows providing natural light and fabulous views over the gardens and neighbouring countryside. They have lights and power and provide plentiful additional space, perfect for a studio, hobby room or simply additional storage. The last room has a door into the remaining loft space.

The property sits on a level plot of approximately 0.66 acres, with a driveway that has right of way access to the neighbouring properties and an adjacent field/paddock amounting to an additional 2.59 acres. Beside the East wing is an extensive terrace of paving, perfect for entertaining, a poultry enclosure and an area for growing your own fruit and veg. A gate leads to the driveway and carport on the north side, where there is covered parking for at least two cars, with a charging point for an electric vehicle, and additional space for several more cars. A door leads into an atrium entrance to the conservatory which is a wonderful tranquil space with a grape vine trained overhead providing shade and an abundance of fruit, with a fabulous vista over the formal lawns. The lawns are beautifully maintained bordered by well-stocked beds of colourful flowers, plants, shrubs and interspersed with ornamental trees, and several mature trees including a fabulous Magnolia. There is a large greenhouse, a raised fishpond, and another patch for growing fruit and vegetables, all enclosed by a tall slate-capped wall on two sides (Grade II listed) and neatly trimmed hedges, and with beautiful views over the neighbouring countryside. There is also a field/paddock of lush grass, enclosed by stock-fencing on three sides and a hedge.
