Description

This is the first time the cottage has come onto the open market in over 100 years and it is believed to have once been part of the nearby privately owned Mawley Hall Estate. The current owners have beautifully and sympathetically renovated and extended the Far Forest stone cottage retaining many of the original features to include exposed wall and ceiling beams and stone work.

A canopy porch with a quarry tiled floor and entrance door with stained glass effect insets leads through to the hallway with a tiled floor and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room has a beamed ceiling and exposed stonework, a brick fireplace with a quarry tiled hearth and a wood burning stove with a back boiler which provides the central heating and the hot water. Double doors open out onto the conservatory which has lovely south facing views over the garden and paddock, a tiled floor, exposed stone wall and double doors opening out onto a patio. The dual aspect breakfast kitchen is open plan with an excellent range of stylish kitchen units and an area for a dining table and a sofa. French doors open out to the south facing patio and the adjacent utility area also has a stable door out to the patio, recesses and plumbing for the usual appliances and a door to a separate cloakroom.

On the first floor the main bedroom has a beamed ceiling and a feature original Victorian fireplace and the adjacent bedroom could be used as a dressing room or a little sitting room or alternatively as a third bedroom. The guest bedroom has lovely views over the gardens and the family bathroom has a white suite with a panelled bath, low level wc, pedestal wash hand basin and a Triton electric shower cubicle.

The cottage sits back from the road behind a mixed mature hedge of holly and hawthorn which provides privacy. There is a gated access to the driveway which provides an ample and parking and turning area and an open fronted carport with an adjacent workshop.

The main garden is predominantly laid to lawn with lovely flower and rose borders. There is also a fenced area for vegetable growing with a greenhouse and an adjacent brick built outbuilding which has electricity and a log store to the side. There is a south facing raised patio area which is a real sun trap and with doors to the conservatory and breakfast kitchen this is an ideal area for alfresco dining.

There is a row of fruit trees to include cherry, pear, plum and apple which runs adjacent to the fenced paddock and a further large vegetable area also with further greenhouse.

The paddock is fenced from the main garden and in total the gardens and grounds extend in total to 2.16 acres.
