The Property Friday Cottage is a delightful family home which has been updated and extended by the present owners to provide spacious and flexible accommodation. The ground floor layout can easily be altered to provide for an integral annexe and this can be achieved either by converting the playroom/office or alternatively the secondary kitchen and carport. The spacious family kitchen/dining room has recently been updated and includes a good range of floor and wall units with granite worktops and integral sink. There is a range cooker to one wall and ample space for groceries in the built-in pantry, and room for additional appliances in the utility. The large utility room would function equally well as a secondary kitchen for cooking enthusiasts or an activity room for arts and crafts. The sitting room with woodburning stove to the fireplace is particularly spacious and leading off is the garden room which enjoys the afternoon sun. The playroom/office has windows to two aspects and a deep storage cupboard as well as ample room for a number of desks and filing cabinets, ideal for those who work from home. There is also a separate study and a cloakroom. Upstairs are five double bedrooms, (one en-suite) and all have fitted wardrobes. There is also an abundance of storage available in the eaves as well as a useful attic store room.
Outside The property is approached from the road via a gravelled driveway which is lined with colourful herbaceous borders separating two areas of lawn. The boundaries are hedged and give a good level of privacy. There is access around each side of the property where the rear garden is divided into rooms. There is a shaded wooded area incorporating a shed to the far corner and a rose covered arbour leads into a more formal area of garden, again lined with a variety of shrubs and plants which give colour and interest throughout the seasons. To the rear of the garden is a summerhouse and chicken house with run and running along the rear boundary is a woodland walk connecting the two areas of garden. Immediately to the rear of the house is a fenced patio area accessed via two sets of French doors. Overall the property sits in around 0.4ac STS.
All in all, a delightful and well appointed family home which won't fail to please.
