History and Specification

he cottage was given Grade II listed status in May 1984 as a property of particular architectural or historical interest. The oldest part, which dates from circa 1650, was originally part of two cottages and comprises the two principal reception rooms on the ground floor and the two bedrooms above. The property was extended in Victorian times which added the current dining room, cloakroom and utility with two bedrooms above. The vendors extended to the rear about five years ago to create a kitchen/breakfast room. This extension also allowed the existing bedrooms to be enlarged and reconfigured.The vendors have undertaken a comprehensive and sympathetic restoration programme which included new wiring, re plumbing, upgrading the central heating system and complete replacement of the slate and tiled roof.

History cont'd

The builder engaged to complete the listed building work was a specialist with extensive heritage expertise and his personal marks are apparent throughout. Internal and external brick and stonework was repointed with Lime mortar, and insulation was added using pure sheep wool which is the preferred medium for buildings of this type. Great care was taken to ensure that no original features were damaged or removed and that the quality of work done enhanced the cottages’ great features.

Ground Floor

The oak entrance door has stained glass detailing and a wing window with additional decorative stained glass and there is a further window for additional natural light. The entrance hall has oak flooring, and built-in cupboards which provide shoe storage and house the electrical fuse boxes and broadband controls.

The staircases are both bespoke handmade units constructed by a local joinery company.

Both have exposed beams and timbers, exposed stonework, and inglenook fireplaces.
