Property description

An Edwardian four double bedroom detached house, situated on a 0.34 acre plot with mature gardens, off street parking and a double garage.

Silchester Cottage is a brick under slate property which dates back to 1906 and has many character features including sash windows, internal doors, picture rails, wooden floors and fireplaces. The accommodation measures 1,973 sq. ft. and includes - on the ground floor - an entrance hall with built-in cupboard, a sitting room with an open fireplace, currently fitted with a coal effect gas fire, a dining room, family room, study and breakfast room. The kitchen has a quarry tiled floor, an Aga and an integrated oven with a gas hob. There is also a utility room and a pantry. On the first floor, the master bedroom and bedroom two both overlook the front garden. There are two further double bedrooms and a four piece family bathroom which includes a separate walk-in shower cubicle and a bath. The property is within 5 minutes’ walk of the centre of the village.

Family Room Highlights

An extension of the original house, this dual aspect room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, a window to the rear and glass doors which open onto the garden patio. From this room there is access to the study which also has a door to the garden as well as a door to a ground floor shower room.

External Highlights

The property is approached via a loose stone driveway providing off street parking for eight cars ahead of the double garage which has power connected. The landscaped gardens extend to each side of the house, are laid principally to lawn and have various trees - including fruit - and flower beds. There is a patio off the rear of the house and a door into the garage. The fencing, hedging and trees to the borders provide a good level of privacy.
