Hayley Cottage is the epitome of a semi-detached, listed house with a symmetrical double-fronted principal façade, and stone elevations. A two-storey extension has been built at the rear, which together with the original, provides light and spacious accommodation with well-proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights.
On the ground floor there is an enclosed porch opening to a hall with staircase. To one side of the hall is a delightful sitting room with a large beamed inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and flagstone hearth, beamed ceiling with window seat and picture rail. Across the other side of the hall is the dining room with a brick fireplace (not currently in use), window seat and beamed ceiling. There is a back hall and cloakroom, and a charming snug with book and display shelves and a bay window overlooking the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is a good size with a full range of cupboard and drawer units, as well as a window enjoying a delightful outlook over the garden. Leading off the kitchen is a utility area with cupboards and sink, clothes airier and oil-fired boiler.
On the first floor the landing gives access to the principal bedroom which is a well proportioned room with old fireplace and exposed roof timbers. There is an ensuite bathroom, and across the landing a dressing room with a range of wardrobes, which could be used as a third bedroom. The guest bedroom has built in wardrobes, window seat and exposed roof timbers. The second bathroom, like the ensuite is well fitted, and gives access to a small box room in the eaves.
The front garden is enclosed by stone walling, and has a central pathway flanked by well maintained lawns together with colourful flower borders. There are a number of mature climbing roses set against the principal elevation, making it a picture through the summer months. Most of the garden lies to the rear where there is a secluded terrace and entertaining area looking out over a level lawn studded with a variety of trees and shrubs, and flanked by well stocked flower borders. At the bottom of the garden is a good screen, behind which is set a vegetable and soft fruit garden, together with a storage area and an aluminium greenhouse. Beyond this and approached off Mildmay Drive, is a garage together with a wide gravelled parking area. The garden generally is a special feature of the property, and at the rear offers a good deal of seclusion.
