This unspoilt four bedroom property exudes warmth, character and history. The interior remains largely unchanged and although perfectly liveable, it is clear that with sympathetic modernisation, this cottage could be a very special home indeed. Set tucked back from the street, the beautiful cottage gardens to the rear, which have magnificent views over the church and are in perfect harmony with the period and character of the residence, giving it a setting that would grace any Agatha Christie drama. In fact, you can almost picture the famous sleuth pruning the hedging to the front of the house while keeping an eye out on the comings and goings in the village. It also benefits from double gates at the bottom of the garden which give access to a hard standing for parking and a large timber store. Due to the size of the plot, it would certainly be possible to build a garage or even possibly build an additional home on the site, subject of course to planning. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all that this fascinating period home has to offer.

The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall where there is plenty of room for the storage of coats, boots and free standing furniture. If desired, this space would also make a god study or office area. Doors to dining, sitting and kitchen / breakfast rooms. Staircase to first floor.

Sitting Room

This lovely double aspect room with its views over the church to the side and garden to the rear, has a comfortable elegance befitting of a bygone era. A fireplace with large built-in cupboards to both sides, makes a cosy focal point. A door at the rear of this room leads through to a lobby area which gives access to the utility / cloakroom.

OUTSIDE: To the front of the house is a low wall with planting behind and a path that takes you to the front door. A gate from the churchyard opens into the beautiful mature south east facing garden which provides a spacious oasis of privacy and relaxation and is completely in keeping with the character of the property. Large mature yew, walnut and magnolia trees give structural beauty, while various ornamental trees and cottage plants provide year round interest. There is also a view of the church from every part of the garden. To the bottom of the garden, double gates provide access to a hard standing area, ideal for off-street parking. NB: It would certainly be possible to extend the parking area here and construct a garage if desired (stp).

Outside contd.

At present, a good size timber store (14'8 x 13'7) at the bottom of the garden provides plenty of space for storage. Additional outside storage can be found in the brick built outbuildings attached to the back of the house, part of which used to be a Wig Room used by worshippers to leave their wigs before entering the church! The open store room now houses the oil tank.
