This delightful "Ashton Estate" cottage sits in perhaps the best position within the village, being set back from the village green and enjoying expansive views over the neighbouring countryside of the Nene Valley.
The cottage was constructed using pitched-faced, dressed stone, a hipped thatched roof and stone mullion windows.The surprisingly tall ceilings and numerous windows help to create a spacious and light dwelling. The cottage is set within a Conservation Area and is Listed Grade II. The current owners have a carried out a program of sympathetic updating, creating a comfortable home without over-modernising it, or removing the feeling of simplicity that these traditional cottages have. The original features such as leaded mullioned windows and a fireplace are still in situ.
The thatched porch is set over the traditional timber front door, that opens in to the entrance hall. Stairs rise to the first floor and a door opens to the living room. This large and comfortable room enjoys a dual aspect, with windows to the front and rear gardens. The focal point is a wood-burning stove set within the fireplace. The wood flooring adds a cosy feel to the room.
The back hall has doors off to the kitchen and to the rear garden. There is an under-stairs cupboard.
The kitchen is traditional in its design and offers a range of wall and base units with work-surfaces and inset sink beneath the window, which as marvellous view. There is an integrated electric oven, ceramic hob and extractor. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher.
