Property Description: DESCRIPTION
Believed to date back to the late 1700's, but remaining unlisted, this delightful, detached stone built cottage has been sympathetically extended by the current owners and now effortlessly blends character and charm with modern day living. The triple aspect kitchen/diner is a super addition and is comprehensively fitted with a range of base and eye level units with ample worksurfaces and an integrated range style oven and hob with extractor. A super woodburner in the dining area offers comfort on dark winter evenings and has the added benefit of an oven and hot plate. From the dining area a door leads through to what is currently utilised as a library but could revert back to be used as separate dining room or snug. The spacious lounge has sliding doors to the rear patio and a delightful open fire with stone surround and a woodburner set on a stone hearth. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, two with built in wardrobe cupboards and a modern family bathroom. To the rear of the cottage is a separate plant room for the air source heat pump which combines a utility area with sink, plumbing for washing machine and an electric WC. OUTSIDE
The property is approached from the lane over a brick paved driveway providing off road parking. There are two useful woodstores and three storage sheds to the rear of the cottage. Stone steps lead up to the delightful gardens which have been painstakingly planted and cleverly designed with the environment and nature in mind. Herbaceous borders, wild flower areas, Mediterranean and mint beds all help to attract a plethora of bees, butterflies, birds and grasshoppers. Raised banks have been created for bumblebees and bank voles and numerous wild flowers for a huge range of wildlife. To one end of the garden is a growing and composting area with raised vegetable beds, beyond which is an old spring where the villagers would have come to fetch their water in years gone by. From the garden beautiful views can be had over the neighbouring countryside to the sea. A super detached, fully insulated large summer house with power and light, electric radiators and a woodburning stove provides a stunning space to relax and reflect in this peaceful and tranquil place.
