An utterly charming semi-detached double fronted period cottage, situated in a completely secluded position at the end of a little lane, with a driveway and surrounded by beautiful and well established gardens. The Cottage is Victorian in its origins and has some wonderful period style features, such as tall sash windows, many original cupboards and a lovely fireplace in the sitting room. However, the property is unlisted and has seen numerous improvements over the years, including a large side extension, which provides ample additional living space.
A handsome front door opens into a small, central entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor. There is a generously proportioned reception room either side of the entrance hall, a dining room to the right and a pleasant sitting room with an exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove to the left. Both these rooms have built-in storage cupboards and are drenched in natural light.
A door leads from the dining room to the kitchen/breakfast room. This has been fitted with an excellent range of modern wall and floor units, set around rolled top work surfaces, integrated appliances and an attractive slate floor.
A double glazed door leads to the garden, whilst another door leads to an outer lobby and a well appointed bathroom and separate cloakroom/WC. These have been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite, with a shower over the bath, ceramic wall tiles and slate floor tiles.
On the first floor, there are two generous double bedrooms (both with built-in storage). The master bedroom has a lovely cast iron fireplace and two fitted double wardrobes. The whole property is beautifully presented, particularly bright and airy and enjoys a tremendous sense of seclusion.
The property is approached via a little lane from Horselees Road. The gardens are to the front of the cottage, are mainly laid to lawn and are enclosed behind a mix of closed panel and pretty picket fencing. The gardens have been lovingly planted with several well established beds and borders, filled with a colourful array of flowers and shrubs. To the side of the cottage, there is a driveway which provides parking for two cars, along with a private patio area and timber shed on the other side of the cottage.
