This delightful cottage occupies a lovely position in the heart of one of the area's most highly regarded villages with accommodation of considerable charm and character.
The front door opens to a practical entrance hall which has a tiled floor with ledge and board door off to an attractive bathroom boasting a free standing roll top bath, wash hand basin set within a vanity unit, white matching suite, tiled floor and exposed ceiling beams.
The dining room benefits from French doors to the rear terrace and has a feature fireplace, exposed ceiling beams and stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting room is a charming room with brick flooring, impressive oak beams to the walls and ceiling and a delightful red brick fireplace with herringbone back, oak bressumer above and an inset wood burning stove set upon a brick hearth. Flanking this is a cupboard adjacent to which is a door leading to another staircase. An oak ledge and board door leads from the sitting room to the rear porch which has a stable door to the garden.
The kitchen is accessed from the sitting room via a ledge and board door and is situated to the front elevation of the property. It is fitted with a range of shaker style units with granite work surfaces, ceramic sink, Aga 'Rangemaster' cooker with extractor hood above and attractive exposed oak studwork to the walls.
The first floor is equally charming and has an abundance of character throughout and comprises two bedrooms in the original part of the cottage, one of which has a recessed fireplace flanked by a cupboard, exposed beams to the walls and ceiling and delightful views to the garden. This room is accessed via a winding staircase from the sitting room. A connecting door leads to the third bedroom which benefits from the views to the rear garden and has oak framework to the walls and ceiling.
The principal bedroom is situated in a more recent extension and can be accessed via stairs rising from the dining room to a landing which has a door to an extensive storage cupboard. There is a well appointed family shower room which has a fully tiled shower cubicle, matching 'Heritage' white suite, tiled floor and is panelled to dado height.
The cottage is approached via a gravel drive providing extensive parking with steps leading to the front door. The drive is flanked by mature mixed hedging to one side and an attractive densely stocked herbaceous and rose border to the other. A pergola with climbing plant leads to a path accessing the front door which is adjacent to a rose border. There is an extensive lawn beyond and mixed hedging to the front and to the side of the property is a log store and an attractive cleft chestnut gate leading to the rear garden.
The cottage benefits from a full width stone terrace to the rear which is of a split level nature and has mellow red brick walling to the edge. The rear gardens are an absolute delight and benefit from a predominately Southerly aspect enabling it to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sun. They are distinctly segregated into separate areas with large expanses of lawn immediately beyond the terrace and densely stocked herbaceous borders with a trellis boasting a variety of shrub roses, clematis and evergreen shrubs to provide year round interest.
There is an attractive flowering cherry which provides a focal point and beyond is dense laurel hedging and a feature arch with a climbing clematis which gives access to the remainder of the garden. This comprises further areas of lawn with mature trees which provide privacy and a further fenced area with a silver birch and fir tree. To the rear of the gardens is protected paddock land giving attractive views. There is an pretty detached studio building which is equipped with power and light and ideal for a home office and this has a covered veranda providing a seating area. It would be fair to say that the gardens at Langley Cottage are laid out in a true cottage style to provide year round interest and colour.
