A charming semi-detached period cottage, with extensive outbuildings and magnificent views over countryside, surrounded by beautiful farmland on the outskirts of Hernhill village.

The front door opens into an entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor and oak flooring, which continues into a cosy, yet charming sitting room. This has a tall double glazed sash window and a lovely exposed brick chimney breast with an open fire. A stripped wood door opens into a spacious, open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear of the cottage. This has been fitted with an extensive range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around granite work surfaces, a twin Belfast sink and a farmhouse style ceramic tiled floor.
From here, another stripped pine door leads to a large, triple aspect utility room, with woodblock work surfaces, a Belfast sink, plumbing for white goods and attractive wood effect flooring. There is a well-appointed cloakroom and access to both the front and the rear gardens from here.
On the first floor, a central landing leads to two double bedrooms and a beautifully appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite, including a luxurious claw foot slipper bath and a separate shower enclosure. The bathroom is finished with Victorian style floor tiles and Metro brick effect wall tiles.
Both bedrooms are good size double rooms, with spectacular views over open countryside, whilst the master bedroom also has a built-in double wardrobe and a feature fireplace.
The cottage is set back from the lane behind a small front garden, with a gravelled driveway which provides parking for one/two cars A set of timber five bar gates lead to additional parking and a superb cart-barn style guest annexe/home office.
