Description

A beautiful stone cottage with versatile accommodation and an attractive garden, set within the heart of the town.

This beautiful cottage dates from around 1600 and is Listed Grade II.
The property is built of stone beneath a Collyweston slate roof. The current owners have continued a program of careful maintenance and sympathetic improvement, over recent years, carefully combining traditional materials with the original features, whilst installing modern systems and fittings. They have also extended the ground floor with a wonderful family room.

The property is entered via a covered passage from North Street. This creates a great hallway, with access to the sitting room and also through to the garden.

The sitting room is at the front of the house and has a window with seat beneath. The open fireplace has a stone hearth and surround. There are useful, original storage cupboards to either side. A door leads through to the kitchen / dining room, which is a split level room with plenty of character. THe dining area has an inglenook to one end, which has been fitted with cupboard and work-surface space. Beneath sit the integrated fridge and freezer. The under stairs cupboard has been shelved as a pantry. The original stud work divides the kitchen area from the dining area. This is fitted with a range of bespoke furniture with granite work-surfaces and inset 1 1/2 bowl sink. Integrated appliances include an electric oven, gas hob and fitted microwave. There is also an integrated dish washer and a washing machine.

A door leads through to the family room, which is a recent addition to the cottage. This has been beautifully crafted from traditional and reclaimed materials. The full height, pitched ceiling has the oak truss and purlins exposed. Oak windows and two pairs of French doors flood the room with light. To one corner the well has been exposed and covered with a glass top. A fitted desk and shelving to one side makes a lovely place to work. The cloakroom is set adjacent and has a traditional flush WC and a stone sink.

The main shower room is also on the ground floor. This is fitted with a WC, wash basin and mosaic tiled shower area.

Concealed stairs rise from the dining room to the landing. This gives access to the three double bedrooms. The main bedroom has a window to the front. A large walk-in wardrobe with lighting provides excellent storage.

The second bedroom has an attractive, leaded window to the garden. The third bedroom also has a window over-looking the garden.

The cottage has a beautifully landscaped garden with a flagstone path leading to an attractive terrace. This provides a great, sheltered and sunny dining area, being set adjacent to the French doors from the family room. A step leads up to the lawn, which runs past the brick store. This is a useful building with electricity connected and offering scope for conversion to a home office. Beyond the store is space for a greenhouse or further shed.
