Entering through the front door at the side of the property, you are met with a very useful entrance hallway, the perfect place to leave your muddy wellington boots after a morning stroll. To the right is a downstairs WC and separate utility room which, subject to planning permission, could offer the space to extend. (Please note there was permitted planning permission to extend the property with a two-storey extension. This has since lapsed but may be possible to reinstate. Planning Application Ref: 14/02513/FUL)
Following through to the kitchen, you are greeted with a wonderfully decorated, modern space with a country twist. Stone tiled flooring and base units feature throughout - as well as a tucked away space for a breakfast table, perfect for family living.
The main sitting room is full of original features and serves as the central point of this cottage. A wood burning stove set within a stone surround alongside character beams, highlight the true character that runs throughout this property - a room full of both charm and warmth.
Adjacent to the living room is your second reception room. This is currently being used a playroom, but could equally serve as a separate dining area. This room is cosy and full of ornate country features and serves as the perfect area to relax and read a book, whilst overlooking the beautifully maintained gardens.
The last room on the ground floor is that all important study, a perfect setting for your home office. This room is situated in an ideal location within the house - at the bottom of the stairs with a window allowing natural light to shine in.
Upstairs there are three well presented bedrooms, two of which are doubles and one single. Each bedroom is wonderfully presented and offers the perfect space for any family to relax. There is an impeccably presented family bathroom on this floor, with a roll top bath and hidden, tiled walk-in shower.
The gardens at this property are what set Orchard Cottage above the rest. Beautifully maintained shrubs and grassed areas both to the front and rear - perfect for buyers who are green fingered, or families looking for a large space for their children to explore. The outside grounds are impeccably well-presented and offers a picturesque backdrop for this idyllic, English cottage.
This property also offers off-street parking and a garage to the rear, a perfect place for a workshop.
