The property has been sympathetically modernised to create surprisingly spacious bright and contemporary living space, whilst retaining all the character of a lovely cottage of this era. It is set in highly attractive gardens, which include an all-weather tennis court. The entrance hall leads into a 25ft triple aspect sitting area and study, a welcoming and comfortable reception room with oak flooring, inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove and timber beams to the walls and ceiling. The fitted kitchen provides cream wooden units with solid wood worktops and an Aga, while the adjoining dining room has French doors opening onto the pretty rear gardens. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a high, vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property is approached via a five-bar gate leading to a paved, concrete and gravel driveway, providing parking to the front of the double garage. There is secure garaging for a car and separate double-door DIY storage shed, each laid with heavy duty garage tiles and with power and lighting to the front door of the cottage. To the rear of the garage is an oak framed building, currently being used as a games room, but which could also be used for a home office, storage, or workshop. The charming gardens are beautifully maintained and presented, with lawns, terraced seating areas and a wealth of established shrubs, colourful flowerbeds, mature trees, and a hard tennis court. Beyond the house to the north, The Street is a no through road that leads to a small parking bay and footpath across open fields to Patching Woods. This is covered in a blanket of bluebells in the spring and is a lovely escape from modern life.
