A delightful three bedroom detached Victorian cottage with parking and a beautiful secluded, south-facing, garden. This charming, cosy dwelling sits on the gentle curve of Colonels Lane, within easy access of the many amenities of the village and with fantastic country walks accessed from the field behind the property.
With its crisp, white painted brick work, double pitched roof and three red brick chimneys, Chestnut Cottage has character and presence from the outset. Entered from the street via a solid, dark wood front door, one enters directly into a homely sitting room with an attractive, exposed brick fireplace and wood framed window looking out to Colonels Lane.
A solid wood, ledge farmhouse door takes one to the foot of the stairs on the left. Straight ahead, another rustic, solid wood door opens to a welcoming living room which opens onto the well-appointed upvc double glazed conservatory, with patio doors to the garden. This generously proportioned living room features its own fireplace, storage with the understairs cupboard and access to the kitchen.
Upon entering the bright and airy kitchen, directly to the right is a fully glazed upvc door to the garden. Next to it, another double glazed window sits in front of the sink. Punctuated by the third chimney breast, this pleasant room has a rustic feel with a range of wall and base units, farmhouse tiled floor and plenty of work surface space.
Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, a quirky but ample single bedroom with a recessed storage area and the family bathroom.
A shingled, picket fenced area at the front of the property provides off road parking for one car. To the left of this there is generous side access to the rear garden, which measures approximately 77 ft x 47 ft. Directly behind the house a handsome, spacious brick edged patio provides an all weather area to admire the beautiful lawn and established flowerbeds. To the left of the patio is an attractive, detached, red brick, fully functional outside privy. This private, south facing garden is mostly flanked by pleasant mature, bushes and greenery and has a summer house with an attached shed to the rear.
