SUMMARY
Historically two farm workers cottages, Church Cottage is not shy in its presentation of period and charm with an abundance of quirky characteristics throughout.


DESCRIPTION
Historically two farm workers cottages, Church Cottage is not shy in its presentation of period and charm with an abundance of quirky characteristics throughout. The property offers flexible and versatile living accommodation whilst retaining many original features such as exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, exposed stone walls, an array of steps into rooms and architectural curved ceilings. It benefits from four bedrooms, three receptions and positioned on a good-sized plot with lovely mature gardens next to the village church.

With the property being two former cottages, there are two entrances to the property along with two sets of staircases. The front entrance provides access from the porch to the sitting room whilst the rear porch is located just off the kitchen and utility. Character is presented immediately from the front entrance with the original cottage staircase leading to the first floor and the step down into the open plan sitting / dining room. The sitting area has an array of exposed stone, exposed ceiling beams and a stunning inglenook open fire. Stepping down into the dining area with its unusual arched ceiling, two large bay windows allow the light to flood into the room. A later but more recent addition to the side of the property is where the study and downstairs shower room is located. This is a unique space and could be utilised to meet the needs of the next owner.
The kitchen is located in what would have been the other cottage and is fitted with a range of base and wall units along with space for a breakfast table, additional appliances and laid with terracotta tiling. Two steps lead up into the snug, again presented with a wealth of character with the arched ceiling, exposed stone and fireplace with log burning stove. Off the rear of the property, is the inner porch with second set of stairs to the first floor and a door to the lean to/utility room providing access to the rear garden.

At the top of the rear set of stairs, is a cloakroom with WC and sink and a landing area with space for a desk under the eaves. Another few steps lead up into the two rear double bedrooms, one of which accesses the Jack and Jill family bathroom. The bathroom itself has a four piece suite including a roll top bath. Two further bedrooms are accessed on the first floor. All bedrooms have lovely picturesque views whether it is the easterly direction of the Church or the westerly direction with rooftop views into the heart of the village and over to the windmill.

Outside
The property is approached via a shared driveway with a metal gate leading into the front garden. Beautiful mature gardens surround the cottage to the front, side and rear with hedging providing privacy but affording magnificent views of the church. A picket gate from the rear garden accesses the shared driveway which leads down to the off-road parking area where you also find a large workshop currently used as an art studio.

Agents note: The driveway is shared with the neighbouring farming property at the rear and the parking area is accessed via a cattle grid.
