Rookery Cottage is an attractive, deceptively spacious character home that has been greatly enhanced by the current owners.
This glorious cottage occupies a discreet elevated position, set within over two acres of gardens, grounds and woodland within this much sought after village.
The home itself offers a wonderful array of characterful yet sizeable accommodation. The accommodation has been greatly enhanced by more recent additions that blend seamlessly with the original cottage. The vendors have been meticulous in maintaining the charming external facade of this much cherished home.
Upon entering the home you are greeted by a welcoming entrance hall, that gives way to principal living areas. To the left there is a wonderful dining room with a feature fireplace. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen that has been well appointed, has space for a breakfast table and a warming oil fired stove. The kitchen in turn leads through to the useful utility room with a generous study beyond that offers wonderful views across the rear garden and grounds. On the opposing side of the home, in the newer addition to the home, is the superb dual aspect formal sitting room. This wonderful room has lovely views across the valley and a focal point feature fireplace. The sitting room then opens through to the stunning garden room, perfectly named as it has exceptional views to the rear across the gardens and up to the woodland. The stunning glazed vaulted ceiling and swathes of exposed Oak frame bathe this room in natural light, whilst still feeling very much a part of the home and a room for all seasons. The ground floor is completed by a cloakroom.
The first floor of this glorious cottage is equally well balanced with three deceptively spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom is of particular note, again boasting lovely dual aspect views across the valley. This generous room offers luxuries such as walk though dressing room and beautiful modern en-suite wet room. The remaining bedrooms are also a wonderful size and are serviced by a well appointed family bathroom.
Homes of this calibre in this location are truly rare, a viewing is highly recommended at your earliest convenience.
