STUNNING PERIOD PROPERTY - This charming 4 bed, 3 reception cottage home is a real gem tucked away behind limestone stone walls offering a huge amount of privacy and seclusion. Inside the accommodation won't disappoint and is deceptively spacious with huge amounts of character and charm. Internal viewing is simply a must!
1 Wistaria Cottages is one of those homes that once visited won't be forgotten; a real gem that has provided a fun, characterful home for the same family for in excess of 25 years! The property simply won't be beaten for character and charm. The cottage is accessed via a gravel driveway which provides pedestrian access for one more adjoining cottage, however the parking is solely for Wistaria giving enough space for approximately 3 vehicles.
The property is steeped in history and was originally the cottage for the Head Gardener at Laywell House with adjoining cottage occupied by the Head Groom. The gardens are completely private with a lovely old limestone wall which wraps around the property boundary and offers ease of perimeter maintenance, lots of character and added security for pets and children alike. The plot enjoys the perfect south westerly aspect ensuring (even during the winter months) that the property is bathed in natural light throughout the day. The gardens are home to some fantastic outbuildings, of particular note is the little stone round house, its original function is still not known and features gun loops for windows.
Internally the property is very spacious and has interesting spaces and rooms with the majority of the living spaces enjoying access into the beautiful gardens. The principal living areas are connected perfectly and the property has a nice flow with great size rooms - all of which have their own character and charm including exposed stone walls, wooden beams and open fireplaces. There are 4 bedrooms in total; one of which is on the ground floor and could easily be adapted to include its own en-suite, making an ideal guest room. Upstairs there are a further 3 bedrooms with the master having an open shower area, again which could easily be incorporated into an en-suite. In addition there is a family bathroom, with roll top bath, serving the other 2 bedrooms.
The gardens are of particular note here, with some really stunning features - including the magnificent Wisteria which offers a huge amount of colour and a shaded spot in this otherwise very sunny garden. The terrace wraps around the property with all principal living areas opening onto this space which is perfect for entertaining and al fresco dining. The gardens are very level and as you follow the winding stepping stones into the garden there are some fantastic further features hidden including the round house, open air seating area, stores and vegetable patches.
Internal viewing is simply a must as a drive by won't reveal much.
Then all you need to do is get in touch to ask any questions or arrange a viewing. We'd love to show you around!
