FULL DESCRIPTION Keepers' cottage is a delightful listed property, believe to date form the 16th century with a later addition to the rear, and retains many fine original features which include open fireplaces, exposed beams and casement windows. The property is immaculately maintained and presented and as such is a credit to the current owners.

The front door with bullseye glass opens to a lobby from which the sitting and dining room can be accessed. The former has a beautiful inglenook fireplace with a carved bressummer, a copper fire hood, windows to the front elevation and a mullion window to the wall. Adjacent to this is a cosy study accessed via open studwork which makes a perfect home office or snug. The dining room has an attractive bay window giving views to the garden, a red brick fireplace with herringbone back and hearth, flanking the fireplace is large storage cupboard and some fitted shelving.

The kitchen/breakfast room is housed in a later addition to the rear of the property and is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units with tiled splashbacks, and has plumbing for a washing machine and space for further appliances. The room benefits from a dual aspect with views to the rear garden, and a lobby gives access to a door to the outside.

The remainder of the ground floor comprises a third bedroom or snug which can be accessed from the outside or via the study, and there is a vanity unit with a cupboard beneath. The current owners have used this as a dressing room but it offers further versatility for new occupants to utilise the room to suit their lifestyle. The bathroom is particularly impressive with travertine tiling throughout, a sunken bath and a matching white suite.

The first floor is equally charming displaying attractive period features which include vaulted ceilings, an exposed chimney breast and fine timbers. There are two generously proportioned double bedrooms which have views over the village roofline.
The property is approached via a picket gate leading to the front door, with a path to the side. There is parking to the front of the garage, and a wrought iron gate to the side accesses the rear garden. The garden is delightful and has a southerly aspect and is partly walled to the north and west with a terrace and pergola positioned to benefit from the afternoon and evening sun. There are established herbaceous borders and beds which provide year-round colour and interest which are interspersed with areas of lawn.

Agents notes:
The vendors have advised that the thatch was renewed on 2021. Construction is timber framed
Planning permission had been granted for a large rear extension in 2000 (subsequently lapsed).
