Chestnut Cottage is beautifully positioned adjacent to open countryside and enjoys a delightful rural environment whilst offering convenient access to major road and rail links.
The Property exudes a rustic charm and has been recently improved and upgraded by the present owners, including refitted and remodelled bathroom, cloakroom and en suite, new carpeting and refreshed paintwork inside and out.
In brief, the accommodation comprises reception hall with guest cloakroom, sitting room with wood burning stove, a well-fitted country kitchen with a comprehensive range of painted cabinets, Aga and space for a dining table, an adjacent utility room – and that all important ‘home office’ which could also serve as an occasional fifth bedroom.
On the first floor, the master bedroom features a walk-in wardrobe and a refitted en suite shower room, plus three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, again refitted and featuring ‘Fired Earth’ tiling.
The excellent mature gardens are adjacent to open fields, there is ample off-road parking and the double garage has a useful studio/office above which could be converted to additional accommodation (subject to the required permissions).
