Why buy this home?
This generous but cosy cottage was once three separate smaller cottages but was converted into a single family home in the 1980’s. As you walk through the front door you are invited into a foyer space with a WC to your right, that is bigger than you would expect. Straight ahead from here takes you into the downstairs bedroom, a spacious room to do with as you please that has built in storage cupboards. On the other side of this is the utility room with space for your washer and dryer alongside some handy storage space and a worktop. This room could easily be made into an ensuite if you chose to use the music room as a downstairs bedroom. With that being said, it makes a great pet/utility room as it is, with access to the garden via the rear door that has a handy cat flap.
Coming back to the front foyer, taking the left hand turn takes your through into the heart of the home. The living room opens up dramatically from the short corridor into an incredibly welcoming open plan space. The beauty of this area is that you can see through to the garden at the rear as well as out front, which maximises the natural light and gives an indoor/outdoor feel. Whilst it is an open living space, when sat on the sofa it feels incredibly cosy with the large traditional fireplace with a wood burner which is certainly the centre piece of the home.
Thanks to the size of the living room, it is easy to separate the space and make use of it in different ways. The current owners have a grand piano at the end of the room, but this could easily become a play area or workspace.
From the living space you will be invited through the large walkway into the dining area that is an extension to the original building. It has a set of three beautiful sky lights that draw in vast amounts of natural light and set a lovely scene with the sky above and garden, visible through the large windows and glass patio doors, to the rear.
To the right of the dining area is the snug, which is a great place to hide away and read a book or listen to some music.
At the other end of this space is the kitchen that is wonderfully separated from the rest of the space by the breakfast bar. It has a lot of workspace, thanks to the beautiful granite worktops, that create a great working triangle making it easy to prep your Sunday roasts and has a double Belfast sink sink to soak your pots. There is also a host of storage in the built in cupboards, including a sizeable walk in larder and an awesome cooker (that can be included in the negotiation) housed in lovely red brick.
From the kitchen, exiting through the door to its rear, you have a sizable under stairs storage room to the right. Following round to the right you’ll head up the stairs, which feel very grand with the chandelier and mirror above, that leads you into the fabulous gallery style hallway that really invites you into the rooms. It is a great place to hang family photos or artwork that you’ve collected and want to show off.
The door immediately to your left is the massive family bathroom that is home to a two end tub with space for two and a walk in double shower, as well as a loo and sink. This is a bathroom of dreams!
The two doors to the right in the hallway take you to bedroom two and three. Both easily house double beds with plenty of space to either side. Both have built in storage space with bedroom two’s being a very large walk in airing cupboard. Both rooms have a cosy cottage feel to them.
At the end of the hallway is the stunning master bedroom that has a large built in wardrobe and windows on both sides. It is a very open room and has some awesome LED lights that really highlight the space as well as giving you great light though the winter.
To the rear of the house is a large patio space for all your summer BBQ and relaxation needs. The garage is to the right of the patio that you can access via a rear door and to the left is some smaller storage sheds. To the rear, up a couple steps, is the laid to lawn garden with a number of flower beds and handy seat carved out of a tree stump that gets the final rays of sun in the evening.
At the front of the house, there is an off-road parking bay that fits three cars.
The current owners have made significant upgrades and improvements since they took ownership. Some of these include increasing the insulation in the home, the bathroom, and the patio in the front and back.
