Hillside Cottage offers a superb, and extremely rare opportunity to live in the most wonderfully secluded location. So rare in fact, that this is only the second time that the house has come to the market in 61 years. Occupied by just two families since the house was constructed as a unique, edge of village home in 1956, the property is surrounded by farmland and enjoys utter peace and perfect country views.
Set at the end of a lane, the house enjoys the enviable position of standing alone, within mature south facing gardens and offers the opportunity to lead a peaceful, uninterrupted lifestyle.
A substantial detached house, improved and extended by the current owners, the property is a much loved family home that offers excellent accommodation with a relaxed and welcoming feel.
The Kitchen, to the rear of the property, is well fitted with a range of units set under both granite and solid wood worksurfaces, and includes a four oven AGA and larder cupboard. Although there is room for a table and chairs within the kitchen, it opens to the Dining Room which is perfect for larger family gatherings. With wooden doors opening to the delightful vine draped decked terrace, it forms the most idyllic of settings for dining al fresco or just relaxing and enjoying the surroundings.
With a large, separate Sitting Room, warmed by a woodburner in a brick fireplace, and with a bay window overlooking the garden and beyond, there are rooms for all seasons.
The house includes plenty of storage, including a large utility room with separate boot room, which gives more than ample space for the needs of country day to day life, domestic appliances, coats, boots, pets etc.
A ground floor bedroom, of very good size, has built-in cupboards and is serviced by an en suite shower room, ideal as a guest suite or suitable for a dependant relative. The space could equally be used as a further reception room if required.
On the first floor, the beautifully light landing includes room enough for a study area and has further stairs leading to a large attic room with windows on three sides, ideal for use as an office or hobbies room.
The spacious Master Bedroom has lovely views, includes built in cupboards and has the benefit of an en suite shower room with power shower.
There are three further good size bedrooms, all with built in storage, a family bathroom and a box room/study with fitted desk.
The drive offers ample parking and includes a covered log store and gate access to the garden. A detached garage to the side, has planning permission in place to improve and for the existing layby to be extended.
The gardens are mature and of very good size, laid to lawn, bounded by mature trees and shrubs, they merge with the surrounding countryside to form a lovely rural view
A dream of a garden for children, with space to run, kick any number of balls, winding paths to follow and places to hide, including a wooden playhouse with verandah and large shed for storage.
The raised deck, attached to the house, leads to a paved terrace, and is covered by a vine and clematis clad pergola - a more delightful and secluded spot to unwind or entertain would be difficult to find.
