Byre Cottage is a charming period property dating back to the seventeenth Century; this deceptively large village home built of local stone, thought to have originally formed part of a neighbouring farm, offers a wealth of period charm and character throughout. Over time, the property has been extended and refurbished to create a delightful, spacious family home.
Approached via a private gravel driveway this deceptive property is only fully revealed from the delightful private garden.
The accommodation offers great flexibility, having good reception space, an annexe area with its own kitchen and four/five double bedrooms all with en suite facilities.
A real focal point of this home is the wonderful sitting room with its original exposed timbers, huge inglenook fire place with wood burning stove, Amtico flooring and unusual arch top barn windows with deep window seats.
The snug offers plenty of character, the perfect place for quiet relaxation or settling down in front of the TV. In addition to this, the snug could also be used as a formal dining room instead. This room sits adjacent to the wellappointed kitchen with ample fitted cupboards and cosy
Rayburn stove and stone flooring. A hallway gives access
to the laundry room and a secondary staircase leading to a
large double bedroom with en suite bathroom.
There is a delightful walled courtyard, an ideal place for alfresco dining or simply relaxing, with a large covered barbecue and entertaining area allowing the fun to continue no matter what the weather has to offer. The large private rear garden is low maintenance and has access to the pool house, housing a well maintained pool complete with changing and showering facilities. There are two double garages and various stone outhouses/stores.
