A handsome period house with extensive accommodation, ideal for family living, most peacefully located in a lovely rural setting with views in all directions, paddock and outbuildings.
Two Little Bridge is one of a pair of cottages built in 1899 with stone elevations and brick dressings. Over the years it has been substantially extended and now provides wonderful accommodation for family life. On the ground floor, the heart of the house is a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, opening out into a dining room, from here folding doors open to a winter sitting room with beamed fireplace and woodburning stove. To the rear of the house and contained within the extension is a summer sitting room with double aspect and French casements out to the terrace. Adjacent to this is a family room. The reception rooms are rounded off by a study which is fitted out with cupboards and shelves.
On the first floor there is a principal bedroom suite with an en-suite bathroom and then off the main landing three more bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, served by a family bathroom. All the bedrooms enjoy lovely views over the surrounding lightly wooded farmland with the main bedroom having a view over the paddock up to Cucklington Church. An external staircase a the back of the house leads up to a bedroom and shower room situated over the family room. This is idea as a guest suite, home office or separate accommodation for older children. It could be combined with the family room on the ground floor to provide an annexe.
A pair of gates opens to a private roadway shared with the adjoining land owner's horse paddocks. Most of the garden lies to the rear of the house where a large split level terrace and entertaining area gives on to a main sweep of lawn with views over lightly wooded farmland at the rear. Across the private track is a gravelled parking area for several cars, adjacent to which stands a two bay open fronted machinery store and adjacent garage. There is a hardstanding with a garden shed. The paddock stretches down to a small stream and abuts the little bridge from which the cottage takes its name. In all the property extends to approaching 1acre.
