'Located in a village which typifies the best of English Country Life'. A most charming thatched cottage peacefully located together with a secluded garden within walking distance of village facilities.
Rectory Cottage is in many ways the epitome of detached thatched cottages for which this area is particularly well known. It dates from the 17th Century and is listed as being of Architectural and Historical importance Grade II. The roof was re-thatched in 2012, and some of the leaded light windows have sealed unit double glazing.
The rooms are large for a house of this type and retain a number of those charming features associated with buildings of this type and age, most notably beamed ceilings, exposed roof timbers and fire places. Whilst perfectly comfortable as it stands, it's probably fair to say that some buyers will look to carry out some cosmetic refurbishment and re-fitting.
On the ground floor, a central hall gives access to a cloakroom. The sitting room has a triple aspect and is focused on a beamed brick fireplace. The dining room also has a brick fireplace and panelling has been installed to the staircase. The kitchen is L shaped and fitted with a range of cupboard and drawer units. The L provides a utility area with back door and a ventilated larder. A study completes the ground floor which was originally used as a ground floor bed room together with its en-suite shower room.
On the first floor there is a spacious landing giving access to the three bedrooms, the main one with plenty of storage and a triple aspect, and the bathroom .
