In the centre of the pretty village of Ingoldsby sits Dove Cottage, a truly delightful and detached cottage set within beautiful cottage gardens. With many period features, this charming property was seamlessly extended by previous owners to offer modern day living.
Set back from the lane behind a picket fence and Laurel hedging, the shingle driveway providing parking for several vehicles is accessed via a five bar gate. A useful outbuilding with stable style doors, believed to have been built by the Ancaster Estate, is situated to the left of the house and offers ample garden storage.
On entering the sitting room you will see a red brick inglenook fireplace to the far end along with a former bread oven which now stores the timber for the wood burning stove. Other original features such as exposed beams and window seats overlooking the garden, can also be found.
The comfortable snug area with display shelves and built in cupboards, which has previously been used as a dining area, opens out into the beautifully appointed kitchen/dining room which has a comprehensive range of handmade wall and floor units, a Belfast sink and an electric range cooker with a gas hob. There is York stone flooring and a set of perfectly placed French doors opening onto the delightful rear garden. The kitchen also provides access to the useful utility room which in turn leads to the ground floor bathroom.
Take the stairs to the first floor where you will find the light and airy L shaped master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, dual aspect windows, views over the delightful gardens and built in wardrobes along with an en suite shower room. A further double bedroom, which is also dual aspect, has a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. The additional through bedroom/study area completes the accommodation of Dove Cottage.
Behind the Laurel hedging to the front, the garden is laid to lawn with a footpath that leads to the side and rear of the property onto a private terrace with views of the village church. The rear garden is enclosed by fencing, is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and has a wealth of established flower beds with other terrace areas for further seating.
