THE AGENT SAYS...
With double fronted dolls house charm, Fairview Cottage truly deserves its name whether youre looking in or out. Fronted by a pretty cottage garden, with trellis and small trees providing privacy, the property also has a lovely private courtyard at the rear with an attractive tiled stone outbuilding at the end. Inside, the cottage is beautifully presented and equally charming with those all important
character features including exposed beams, an AGA and wood burning stove.
The gothic arches of the half glazed porch doors echo those of the beautiful studded oak front door within. The sitting room, centered around a stone fireplace with wood burning stove, is bright and airy but with a lovely cosy feel. The adjoining dining room, currently used as a study, also has a fireplace. At the rear of the property is the country style dine-in kitchen which is flooded with
morning light and has lovely features including exposed beams, in-frame traditional cream units with oak worktop, a powder blue AGA, Belfast sink and display shelves, ledges and nooks. Double doors open out to spacious garden room with a useful, large storage area to one side. Off the kitchen there is a utility room and WC. An enclosed staircase rises to the first floor.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms - two equally sized double rooms, one with fireplace and one with fitted storage, and another room with built-in wardrobe. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower, airing cupboard and additional storage space.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
A timber field gate gives vehicular access to the gravel driveway alongside the property which leads to the detached double garage and adjoining outbuilding at the rear. The outbuilding opens into the secluded rear courtyard garden which is a lovely spot for alfresco dining. At the front of the property is a delightful lawned garden abundant with roses, small trees and other cottage garden perennials.
