No Onward Chain.
Dating from the 17th Century, Mellow Thatch is reputed to be one of the oldest cottages in this popular Bourne Valley village. Set within a generous plot, the cottage has a large, established garden that backs on to a copse at the rear and plenty of private parking, including a detached garage.
Well maintained by the current owners and offered in good order, the thatch has recently been re-ridged and has also been completely redressed and wired.
The addition of an insulated studio/office, with plumbing, has created an excellent work from home, guest or hobbies space.
The cottage offers delightful, character accommodation, presented in keeping with its period charm and with many of the original features retained. Beautiful exposed beams, wooden latch doors, pretty windows and a stunning Inglenook fireplace combine to create the most wonderfully warm and inviting interior that one would hope to find in a traditional thatched cottage.
The pretty thatched porch shelters the front door which opens to the entrance lobby, which in turn leads to the good size Sitting Room. Featuring a large Inglenook fireplace with original bread oven and wood burning stove, the room is double aspect to thefront and rear and forms a lovely reception space that is matched by an equally spacious Dining Room. Including two large built-in storage cupboards, the dining room has plenty of space for entertaining and leads to a further Study/Playroom or Bedroom Four.
The kitchen is well fitted with a range of shaker style units and is fully equipped with electric double oven and induction hob with extractor over, integrated refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. There is room for a breakfast table and chairs and the window provides a lovely view down the well established cottage garden.
The side porch provides a utility area with space and plumbing for a washing machine / tumble dryer and there is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.
On the first floor there is a generous main bedroom which is full of character, a second double bedroom with built in cupboard and beautiful wide floorboards and a generous third bedroom with built in wardrobe; a luxuriously fitted bathroom with shower bath and slate floor.
A picket fence with gate opens to front garden with pathway flanked by lawns and well stocked flower beds leading to the porch which is framed by climbing roses. Gravelled paths lead through to the drive, which offers ample private parking and gives access to the detached garage with power connected.
To the rear of the cottage, the garden is of good size, mature and well stocked with curved herbaceous borders planted with shrubs, spring bulbs and rambling roses, to provide colour and interest throughout the seasons, Lovely old cooking apple trees, a crab apple and honeysuckle draped pergola provide height and interest and a small pond forms a delightful feature.
Raised beds are perfect for vegetable growing and a greenhouse, fruit cage, garden shed and chicken run provide all the necessary requirements for a traditional cottage garden.
The studio/office is well insulated and heated, and is currently arranged a garden sitting room with separate office, separate kitchenette and wc. Perfect as a work from home opportunity, it also forms a great entertaining space with double doors opening to a paved terrace, ideal just for relaxing and enjoying the lovely garden or hosting summer barbecue parties.
