A detached cottage, of brick construction, part slate hung on the southern elevation, under a pitched slate roof.
The building has been well maintained and updated, with the benefit of upvc double-glazed windows and doors together with a modern gas-fired central-heating system. The immediate environment is particularly appealing, being situated at the top of a quiet backwater and best described as an oasis, with beautifully planted and well-established gardens which extend to approximately 0.428 acres offering complete privacy. The gardens are especially interesting, in respect of specimen trees, shrubs and perennials, and have been thoughtfully planned and arranged to great effect, with areas of lawn, bisected by pathways and gravelled walkways, which provides a garden of immense interest and understandably was selected to be featured on Gardeners’ World in 2006 and The National Garden Scheme.
The accommodation is spacious and benefits from an excellent level of natural light, with most of the rooms facing west towards the gardens and includes a lovely spacious kitchen/family room, large enough for formal and informal dining and fitted with a lovely range of solid timber units with polished marble work surfaces. There is a large drawing room with Minster fireplace and wood-burning stove, a sitting room with conservatory extension, which is currently used as a dining room and a downstairs WC. At first floor are three good bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom.
