This delightful period cottage has been significantly and sympathetically extended by the current owners in recent years to create a charming family home with flexible accommodation and beautiful views over open countryside from many of the rooms. Whilst the kitchen, bathrooms and décor are modern, original features such as wooden beams and farmhouse style doors remain intact throughout. The spacious yet cosy sitting room boasts a log burner at one end of the room and an open fire at the other, both with striking red brick chimney breasts. The ground floor accommodation has a natural flow and home workers will appreciate the central study space with additional cloakroom/WC. The family room and kitchen/dining room are open plan, both areas have a dual aspect and double doors opening directly to the garden. The contemporary kitchen/dining room boasts a good range of wall and base units with wooden worktops, as well as a central island with built-in wine shelves. There is ample space for appliances in both the kitchen and the separate utility room with convenient external door.
On the first floor is a master bedroom with en suite shower room and a family bathroom featuring stunning original beams. There are three further double bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes and one with an ornate fireplace.
