The accommodation is extremely versatile on the ground floor with a large second reception and study that are currently being used as bedrooms in addition to the four bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen has a fireplace with feature wood burner and stable door to the rear garden.
At the front of the property there is a driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles with a carport. An outbuilding is also at the front with wine cellar beyond that could easily be converted into a studio (subject to the necessary planning permission) and log store. Gated side pedestrian access leads into the garden which wraps around the side and rear of the cottage. A brick paved patio with well adjoins the kitchen leading to the lawns with a lean to greenhouse, shrub borders, apple tree, vegetable/herb garden.
