Bluebridge Cottage is a striking detached Grade II listed property with an elegant gault brick façade and later additions.
A panelled door with an attractive fan light above accesses the reception hall which has mellow oak framing to the walls and ceiling and Karndean flooring. Three of the reception rooms are accessed directly from here, with the sitting room being situated on the North-Westerly elevation of the property. This is a delightful room with sash windows to the front elevation, a large red brick fireplace with oak lintel provides a focal point and this is flanked on both sides by attractive shelving and cupboards. The rear wall of the room has brick infill between the studs.
A panelled door leads to a rear lobby which has a glazed door to a courtyard accessing the garage and parking. The dining room is an equally charming room with sash windows to the front elevation and it has mellow oak work to the walls and ceiling, pamment flooring and a further brick fireplace with oak lintel and tiled hearth. This fireplace is flanked by a useful storage cupboard and to its left a winding staircase leading to the first floor.
The family room is situated to the rear of the property and overlooks the terrace and rear gardens and has an impressive red brick fireplace with oak lintel and a wood burning stove set on a brick plinth, Karndean flooring and exposed oak frame work to the rear wall. French doors lead to a delightful garden room which has green oak beams to the ceiling, a tiled floor with wet underfloor heating and charming views to the terrace and garden with a glazed and panelled door leading to the terrace making it ideal for family entertaining.
The kitchen/breakfast room is situated on the South-Easterly elevation of the property and is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units which are topped with granite work surfaces, a twin bowl 'Villeroy & Boch' sink and integral appliances include a 'Rangemaster' cooker with extractor hood above and ornately tiled splashbacks, dishwasher and a fridge/freezer.
There is a large oak island unit which doubles as a breakfast bar and the room benefits from electric underfloor heating and a triple aspect taking in views to the garden. A panelled door from the kitchen leads to a practical utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer, flanked by storage and cupboards.
From here a panelled door leads to a cloakroom with a pedestal wash hand basin with splashback and w.c.
The aforementioned stairs from the dining room are bi-directional, one set leading to the principal bedroom and the other set to the rear landing. The rear landing is an attractive area with windows giving views to the garden, exposed studwork and a large impressive red brick chimney breast.
The principal suite is situated to the South-Easterly elevation of the property and has sash windows to the front and side. It is a well proportioned room with attractive oak framework to the walls and a red brick chimney breast. A panelled door leads to a large walk-in wardrobe providing extensive storage. A second panelled door leads to the lavishly appointed en-suite bath/shower room which has an oversized shower cubicle, bath and shower within a tiled surround and a vanity unit with cupboards under.
There are three remaining bedrooms situated to the front elevation of the property, all of which have sash windows, exposed oak frame work and in two of the bedrooms there are attractive mellow red brick chimney breasts. These bedrooms are served by a delightful family bathroom which is arranged over a split level which has a Jacuzzi bath with shower over in a tiled enclosure, vanity unit with cupboard under and w.c. There are charming features to include exposed oak framework and Karndean flooring.
Bluebridge Cottage is approached via twin pavioured drives which provide extensive parking and in turn lead to the detached garage/workshop which has power and light. Immediately to the front of the property is a dwarf red brick wall upon which are ornate wrought iron railings with a gate giving access to a path leading to the front door. Within the railed area is neatly manicured box hedging and stone surfaces for minimal maintenance.
The rear garden is absolutely delightful and benefits from an extensive pavioured terrace flanked by attractive brick and flint walling with cappings. From the terrace are brick steps leading to a pavioured path which is flanked by a trellis and pergola which provides a sheltered seating area and this is adjacent to two rectangular ponds which provide a focal point.
There are mature boundaries to all sides of the property and either side of the aforementioned pergola are extensive expanses of lawn. Further access to the rear is afforded from the drive on the Easterly aspect of the property via a rose arch.
