THE AGENT SAYS...
Grade II listed Eiston Cottage is an archetypal chocolate box cottage that dates back to the 17th century. Recently renovated, including re-thatching 8 years ago, the cottage has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide spacious living accommodation suited to modern life. The impressive sitting/dining room and kitchen/breakfast room are both over 33 in length. This is a house full of character and personality with exposed beams, window seats and a country style hand-painted shaker kitchen with range, Belfast sink and colourful tiling. Outside, the cottage has pretty walled gardens to the front, side and rear, including a dedicated kitchen garden. There is a large detached double garage and offroad parking for multiple cars.
A pretty open porch adorned with roses shelters the front door which opens into a small inner porch. Beautiful halfglazed double doors with a butterflies and flowers design open into the impressive sitting dining room, which is over 33 long and half as wide. With two distinct zones, the dining area adjoins the kitchen while the sitting area enjoys the warmth of the fireplace with its gas-fired stove. All three windows overlooking the front garden have window seats to enjoy the view and create plenty of additional seating for guests. At the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room with a WC at the far end. Bespoke timber units in a classic 1950s blue and multicoloured tiles make the kitchen a lovely cheerful room, perfect to start the day on the right note. An extension to the side of
the kitchen houses a very generous utility room with plentiful storage and doors opening to the side and rear of the property. There is also a small study overlooking the front.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms and the family bathroom with separate WC. The master bedroom is a good size and has an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath and storage cupboard for towels and essentials. There is plentiful fitted wardrobe space in the bedroom and also another lovely window seat - the perfect spot to embrace the morning with a tea or coffee. The three other
bedrooms (two doubles and a single) also all benefit from built-in storage. The spacious family bathroom has a large corner bath, separate shower and washbasin.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The pretty walled garden wraps around three sides of the property and extends to around 0.3 acres. An attractive stone wall with cock and hen capping stones separates the property from the street with a gate and paved path leading to the front door. Behind the house is a patio dining area with a pergola extending out from the rear door of the utility room. The patio leads to a large lawn with a planted raised border and further shaded spot to sit. The gravelled parking area leading to the large detached double garage divides this from a further large lawn. Tucked away in the rear corner is a sheltered kitchen garden.
