A delightful, renovated, detached, stone and thatched cottage with art studio / annex and beautiful garden of 0.23 acre, set on the edge of a village and enjoying rural views. With Plannning Permission for extension.

Corner Cottage is simply delightful. With 16th century origins and 18th century alterations, this detached, stone and thatched cottage is Listed Grade II. The property has been the subject of a painstaking renovation and sympathetic modernisation program, by the current owners, using traditional methods and materials, carefully combined with contemporary fittings and services, to create a characterful home with a good degree of practicality. The long straw thatch was last worked on in 2020, and therefore offers plenty of life for the new owner.

The cottage stands well on its plot with the majority of its windows over-looking the south-facing garden. The entrance is from the garden, via a beautifully crafted, oak, stable door, which leads into the porch, which is then the entry, via an original ledged and braced door, to the living room. The atmospheric room has a beamed ceiling, deep silled windows to the front and rear, and a magnificent inglenook with woodburning stove, as a focal point. The original bread oven door is in situ.

The kitchen is partially open to the living room, which adds to the feeling of space. This is fitted with a range of bespoke wall and base units with hardwood worksurfaces and inset Belfast sink. There is a deep, shelved pantry cupboard, and useful pan drawers. Integrated appliances include and electric hob with extractor, electric oven and grill, a dishwasher and a fridge freezer.

The study or dining room, also serves as an occasional bedroom. This versatile room has windows to the side and rear gardens. The ceiling is pitched w it exposed studwork.

The bathroom is set on the ground floor and is beautifully appointed with a tiled and glazed shower cubicle, a basin set upon a wash stand, and a WC. There is an area concealing the washing machine.

Stairs rise from the living room to the first floor, where there is an oak floored dressing area, with cloakroom / WC to one side. The bedroom area has a vaulted ceiling and enjoys views over the garden and fields beyond.

One of the benefits of Corner Cottage is that is has no immediate neighbours. It has off-road parking to one side, and fenced garden to the other. Beyond each of these are fields. A gate leads through to the rear garden, where there is a large, shingled terrace, ideal for entertaining outside. Steps lead up to the lawn, which has a central path set within an avenue of maturing box trees. This leads through a rose arch to a second lawn and a further terrace, beyond which is the art studio. This handsome timber building is well-equipped and serves well as over-flow accommodation if necessary, as it has facilities installed. The raised vegetable beds are over-looked by the timber summer house.
There are field views to three sides.
