Property description

A Grade II listed 17th century thatched cottage with a modern extension and a detached annexe set in a mature plot of approximately 0.75 acres.

The property has been the subject of a comprehensive renovation programme by the vendors who have successfully combined modern amenities with retained period features such as fireplaces, exposed brickwork, ceiling beams and ledge and brace internal doors. The original section has a sitting room, a dining room, a study and a cloakroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms and a three piece bathroom on the first floor. The thatch including the ridge, was replaced in 2022. The property was extended in 2009 which added a kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room, and an open plan family room which has a wood burning stove, and French doors to a sunken patio with views across the adjoining farmland. There is access to a hall which has a shower room and stairs to a dual aspect double bedroom on the first floor. The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout.

Kitchen/Breakfast Room

This dual aspect room has feature curved, full height windows and doors which lead to a patio area in the garden. The kitchen is fitted with Shaker style cupboards and drawers with Minerva Carrara White solid resin worktops and a central island. There are some integrated appliances as well as a separate utility room. There are recessed LED lights and terracotta floor tiles which continue into the family room.


The self-contained annexe has a vaulted dual aspect reception room/bedroom with French doors to the garden, modern LVT flooring throughout and a Morso wood burning stove. There is also a kitchenette and a fully tiled, three piece shower room.


The property is set back within its plot and has a driveway leading to parking areas for several cars and a recently built triple garage with power connected and a loft storage area. The mature gardens include patio seating areas, and a main lawned garden with mature trees, including apple trees, interspersed, established flower beds and views over open farmland. There is also a separate vegetable garden with a greenhouse, as well as garden stores.

Situation and Schooling
