Dating back to the 17th century, Wayside Cottage is a stunning detached house with surprisingly large rooms and character features at every turn. The property is set in a large plot with a sizeable garden and ample off-street parking.
Believed to have originally been two cottages, Wayside Cottage has a unique floor plan including two staircases. The accommodation downstairs comprises a large sitting room and dining room (both with an inglenook fireplace), playroom/reception room with a log burner, kitchen, utility and downstairs shower room. Oak flooring runs throughout the downstairs.
Upstairs you will find three well proportioned bedrooms accessed via either staircase, large landing and superb recently fitted family bathroom with separate walk-in shower.
The property also benefits from a newly installed central heating system, including Vaillant boiler.
The rear garden is of a fantastic size and is great for any summer events. It is mainly laid to lawn with some patio areas and a rockery. Various children’s play areas have also been added by the current occupants.
The garden is mainly enclosed with hedging and has a gravel area (which can be extended if need be) to park. One point worth mentioning is there are services at the end of the garden which are set up and ready to be used for a home office/annex (subject to planning permission).
The current owners describe the house’s location as the perfect balance between town and country.
