Springfield is a wonderful and peacefully located hamlet property with the original cottage dated from the early 19th Century. In approximately 2000, the property was extended from a ground floor to provide two bedrooms with a separate bathroom and ensuite shower room. About ten years ago, the current owners further extended to create the wonderful kitchen breakfast room and utility room to the side. The property has been comprehensively refurbished including a superb shower and bathroom, UVPC double glazing using a perfect blend of quality material, including oak doors, lime stone flooring, whilst retaining the original character features of the property.
The property is mainly approached from the driveway over a lovely terrace leading to the side hall, although at the front of the property is an attractive covered porch, accessed from a picket style gate from the lane. Accommodation flows extremely well and provides versatile accommodation with two ground floor bedrooms and a particular note is the superb cottage style kitchen breakfast room with a range of hand built units including drawers and cupboards with wooden worktops above, attractive tiled splash backs and at the far end, a double white enamel sink with cupboards below together with plumbing and space for a dishwasher. A feature recess houses the Range Master cooker with tile surround and extractor hood above, and at the heart of the kitchen, the oil fired Aga. A half glazed door leads to the utility room with base unit with worktop and stainless steel sink, Worcester Danesmoor 15/19 oil fired boiler, together with plumbing and space for washing machines. Adjacent to the side door is a shoe cupboard. The kitchen/breakfast room naturally opens to the dining hall with attractive fire place, exposed timbers and glazed door leading to the sitting room with a fireplace on limestone hearth with oak surround, wood burning stove and flanked by dwarf shelved cupboards. The room has a wonderful southerly outlook over the gardens with French doors to the south facing terrace. The dining hall is open to the good sized entrance hall with study area, under stairs cupboard and doors to the two bed rooms, one of which has a superb part-tiled shower room with underfloor heating, Aqualisa shower in a large cubicle, wash hand basin in limestone topped vanity unit with cupboards below, heated towel rail and WC. The second bathroom is also part tiled with panelled bath with a Victorian hand shower attachment, pedestal, wash hand basin and heated towel rail, WC and access to roof space.
Staircase in a single flight leads to the first floor landing with shelved linen cupboard and further storage and doors leading to two further bedrooms both of which have wonderful and far reaching views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The two bed rooms are served by a second bathroom with part tiled walls, panelled bath with Victorian hand shower attachment, pedestal wash hand basin, bidet, shelf airing cupboard housing a hot water cylinder, WC and access to roof space.
The property is approached from the lane by a one and a half five bar timber gate leading to an immaculate blocked paved parking area adjacent to the double barn style garage with power and light and loft storage above. An attractive trellising with climbing plants, including roses separates the garden with an opening leading to a paved area adjacent to the kitchen breakfast room, and a path in turn leads to the main gardens which have been superbly landscaped, creating many interesting areas and are well stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs and provide many attractive areas for outside amenity space, as well as the keen gardener. Adjacent to the garage is a timber decking area which leads to the garden studio which is insulated with power and light providing a useful studio or home office amongst other uses. Behind this are a number of timber sheds including log stores. At the far end of the garden is an attractive stone wall with established hedging, backing onto fields beyond, whilst a further wall separates a gravelled sun trapped area, again with a number of shrubs and large decked area adjacent to a rendered wall. Adjacent to the house is a further gravelled area ordered by lavender, and a gravelled path leads around the side and in turn to an attractive and easily maintainable front garden with roses and box hedging and timber gate adjacent to the lane. Overall the gardens form a delightful setting for the property.
