About this property
Welcome to Honeysuckle Cottage, an iconic and charming two/three bedroom period cottage close to the heart of this historic village, as featured on BBC's Story of England series by Michael Wood. With a 29ft garage, workshop, off road parking, Inglenook fireplaces and westerly facing, landscaped gardens. This may well be your next dream.
Recognised, and admired by many local residents, including the selling agent, this delightful cottage offers an abundance of period features throughout. Step in to the hall and turn to your left where you will find a surprisingly spacious 22ft sitting room, half of which is currently used as a dining area. Natural morning light floods through the two east facing windows at the front while the afternoon sun brings more light from the rear. Your eye will be drawn to the exposed beams and the exposed brick Inglenook fireplace with a gas fired stove without the fuss of solid fuel.
Across the hall you will find the snug, which could serve as a dining area. This too has its own exposed brick Inglenook fireplace with a gas fired stove. Access to the cellar below is in the corner, while double doors and feature internal window allow light to spill in from the garden room/conservatory beyond.
The farmhouse style kitchen has attractive garden views, direct access to the garden and is equipped with bespoke fitted units offering plenty of storage and wooden work surfaces. It offers a handy built in pantry, further boot room/store, space for a washing machine, and integrated appliances. A handy ground floor wet room, converted from a bathroom, can be accessed from here too.
Heading upstairs via the straight stair case, (ideal for a stair lift), the charming features continue. A brace and latch cottage door leads into the reception landing dominated by a large feature exposed brick chimney breast. This could serve as a home office/study or even a third, guest bedroom. The upstairs shower room is tucked in the corner, which is itself a veritable feast of period charm. Either side you will find two double bedrooms both with ample storage owing to the bespoke, hand-fitted cupboards with brace and latch doors.
The chocolate box charm of this period cottage belies the fact that there is not only off-road parking to the side drive, but also a 29ft garage/workshop. A separate, secure gate provides access in to the rear garden and a further personnel door to the side of the garage. There is scope for this to be a home office, workshop, studio or treatment room for a small business owner or even separate annexed accommodation, (subject to planning consents). The landscaped rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect allowing for lots of sun. Well stocked and sectioned in to "rooms" it is idyllic. Have children in tow? Fear not, due to its central village location open space parks, playgrounds, tennis courts and a MUGA are all very close by.
