A wonderful opportunity to purchase this L-shaped, detached, thatched, period cottage with the original parts dating back to the 18th century, with later additions. The vendors have spent considerable time and energy updating the house, which has included a complete re-thatch within the last few years.
The property offers a high degree of privacy being set on quiet no through lane and is protected from the lane by mature hedging, with lovely rear gardens backing onto open fields. The house offers fantastic and well presented accommodation along with a wonderful indoor heated swimming pool and double garage.
The accommodation of just over 2000 sq. ft. comprises a rear lobby with ground floor shower room, a splendid 30' kitchen/breakfast room with triple aspect windows. The reception rooms offer a high degree of flexibility with a snug boasting the original inglenook leading through into the formal dining room, with a door then leading into the main sitting room, again with triple aspect windows with views over the gardens and French doors to the side. On the first floor there is a superb master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, as well as three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
We thoroughly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate both the house itself, along with its grounds and its leisure facilities. Opportunities to find this kind of property are rare.
