An enchanting Listed cottage situated in one of the Nadder Valley’s most sought-after villages & renovated to an excellent standard in keeping with its charming period character
An enchanting Listed cottage situated in one of the Nadder Valleys most sought-after villages & renovated to an excellent standard in keeping with its charming period character.
An attractive Grade II Listed end-of-terrace cottage thought to date back to the late 1700s with red brick external elevations under a clay tiled roof and with a single storey 20th century extension to the rear. In recent years the present owners have been responsible for a carefully managed and sympathetically executed refurbishment programme with great care taken to retain and indeed, enhance the intrinsic period character and charm. This has led to the creation of a beautifully presented home ideal for use as a primary rural village residence or weekend retreat.
The tastefully decorated accommodation on the ground floor comprises a late 19th Century enclosed entrance porch accessing the cosy sitting room which has a beamed ceiling, storage cupboards and an inglenook fireplace with a wooden bressomer beam and wood burner. The custom designed and fitted kitchen/breakfast room has wooden fronted units, quartz work tops and a Rangemaster cooker. Beyond the kitchen a well-appointed shower room and a good-sized family/dining room that could be used as an office or third bedroom. Upstairs there is a pretty bedroom to the front, a master bedroom to the rear with fitted cupboards and an attractively fitted family bathroom.
A door from the kitchen leads through a covered passageway/storage area with potential to create a utility/rear hall (subject to consent) to the delightful sheltered rear garden which has a patio area, steps leading up to the lawn, established flower & shrub borders and apple and ornamental trees.
