If you are looking for Thatch, this is your perfect Match. Idyllic, peaceful, charming, characterful and wonderfully large grounds, Lower Cottage has it all.
Occupying a substantial area of grounds set within a small hamlet stands Lower Cottage, a beautiful two bedroom thatched house positioned at the end of a row of three.
This is a very unique and individual property with huge amounts of character and would suit those looking for the peace and tranquillity of rural life. Fronting onto a country lane the cottage is approached from some steps up to a small area of paving and to the entrance porch which leads through a small vestibule with coat hooks and under stairs storage, and to the living room. The living room is wonderful and has a great deal of character. A large stone fireplace is home to a wood burner with a traditional bread oven alongside and an area to store logs adjoining. A large beam sits above and makes for a fantastic feature of the room. An inner hallway leads to the downstairs bathroom and kitchen with adjoining dining area. The kitchen is a lovely area with a large stone archway dividing it from the dining room, dual aspect windows look out to the side and rear. Country style cupboards offer a variety of storage and incorporates the worktop and stylish sink. What makes the room interesting is the planning consent given to enhance the room further and to create a whole new single story extension from the kitchen area which would provide a further dining room and living room.
The dining room also provides access to the gardens and has plenty of space for a dining set. Under the plans this room would become the kitchen. A downstairs bathroom has a matching suite and includes a bath, separate shower, wash basin and w/c
Upstairs, the charm of the cottage continues and two double bedrooms sit to the front and rear.
The master bedroom has dual aspect windows to the front and side and are deep set which indicates the thickness of the walls. It also benefits from an en suite with WC and basin.nnThe second bedroom also has a great deal of charm and overlooks the rear, handy built in cupboards provide storage.
Outside to the rear the gardens are substantial and offers varying areas to use or work as suited, the areas are beautiful with stunning scenic views of the surrounding area. Parking is plentiful here and a wonderful workshop and office area provide the perfect place to escape to. A summerhouse sits proud above a tranquil pond, teaming with wildlife and has become a place to relax and contemplate. Access is available from a lane to the rear that adjoins the main route through the hamlet.
In all this is a fabulous unique property with the plans already granted to significantly improve the overall size, these opportunities do not arise often so we would recommend making prompt enquiries.
