An attractive and charming period cottage requiring some modernisation and updating, located in a quiet lane within this sought after village. Generous accommodation including three double bedrooms. Mature garden, garden room and double garage.

About the Property

Bridge House is a charming stone built cottage dating from 1720. The property retains much of the character that one would expect from a property of this age including wooden latch doors, window seats, wooden beams and flagstones. Modern additions include double glazed windows and gas central heating. The property is in a quiet lane away from main roads and has a comfortable and welcoming feel with plenty of privacy both in the house and garden. The generous accommodation is well laid out with the principal rooms overlooking the beautifully planted mature garden. Bridge House is a lovely property that would benefit from some updating and modernisation throughout and offers the opportunity to create a wonderful home.

About the Inside

The front door opens to the generous hall with the sitting room on the left. This comfortable room has a fireplace and ceiling beams. On the right of the hall is the kitchen and dining room that is fitted with wall and floor cupboards and a useful larder. From the kitchen a door leads to a storage area that opens to the utility room. This good space has a sink and drainer, gas fired boiler, space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a stable door to the garden. Off the utility room is a cloakroom with a wc and hand basin. On the first floor are three double bedrooms all with windows with window seats to the garden. The bathroom has a bath, shower cubicle, wc and hand basin.

About the Outside

Bridge House is approached from Pound Lane onto a block paved driveway that leads to the double garage. The garage has light and power and a storage area to the side with a further door leading to the garden. From the drive an iron gate in an attractive stone wall opens into the garden. The garden is fully enclosed and is very private. This sheltered and enclosed westerly facing space is lawned with mature borders that are delightfully planted with a range of shrubs, spring bulbs, herbaceous and silver birch trees. At the end of the garden is a useful garden room built of block and stone with and electric night storage heater and Upvc French doors to the garden. There is also a garden store to the side.
