NO ONWARD CHAIN
Glenesk dates from the 1930's, one of a pair, designed to emulate a classic period cottage , with thatched roof and pristine white washed elevations, but with the wonderful benefit of the spacious and light accommodation traditionally found in 30's houses.
Set within the popular village of Shrewton the cottage lies off the Rollestone Road, a sought after private road on the edge of the village. Consisting of a mix of period and individual modern houses, the area enjoys a good community and has easy access to village amenities and excellent walking country.
Beautifully presented, the cottage has been very carefully re-arranged and modernised to create a fantastic family house with an ideal layout, big rooms with excellent natural light and a pleasing open outlook across substantial gardens.
The plot is generous, the cottage set well back from the road behind a deep front garden and there is plenty of room to extend to the side and rear if required (subject to the necessary consents).
A stable door opens to the large glazed Entrance Porch with the original arched front door making a delightful feature. The Entrance Hall has solid oak flooring, laid throughout the ground floor for continuity and to complement the original panelled doors, and has built-in storage under the stairs.
The Sitting Room is double aspect, enjoying views over the gardens, it forms an excellent reception space of very good size.
A fantastic feature of the house is the large Kitchen / Dining / Family Room at the rear of the cottage. With a superb L-shaped layout, the room has been arranged to make the most of the space with two sets of French doors opening to the garden, perfect for dining, relaxing and entertaining.
The Kitchen is large and airy and is exceptionally well fitted with a range of units under solid granite worksurfaces. Fully equipped with a dual fuel Range cooker, integrated microwave and fridge/freezer. A separate Utility Area provides space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and there is a separate Cloakroom.
On the first floor there are three good size bedrooms; the master bedroom has newly fitted carpet and the other two bedrooms are fitted with Kardean oak effect flooring, the smaller one with built-in storage. The large, luxury fitted bathroom has a white suite including an outside bath a large separate shower cubicle and fitted storage.
A long gravel drive provides ample parking and offers room to construct a garage if required (subject to the necessary consents). The deep front garden has a spacious lawn with hedging on the boundary and mature trees including a wonderful Ash; steps lead up to a paved terrace at the front of the house, providing a wonderful spot to sit and look out across the wide open space.
Access to the side leads to the substantial rear garden, beautifully tended and laid mainly to lawn a further terrace provides and excellent entertaining area with further dining terrace to the side. A well placed Summer House enjoys a sunny aspect, with a decked area to the front and light and power connected. Mature shrubs and trees provide height and interest and give a high degree of privacy. A jasmine clad arch leads on to a beech hedge that dissects the top of the garden and creates a large screened area of further garden with greenhouse and sheds.
