A beautifully presented, south facing cottage of immense charm and character, with detached self-contained 2 bedroom annexe, conveniently situated on the edge of this sought after village in well tended grounds of about 0.88 acres.
Whitewell cottage is believed to date from the 18th century and offers accommodation of immense charm and character with original fireplaces, exposed timber beams and numerous other features typical of a property from this period. The property has been sympathetically updated and improved in recent years, so that it now provides a very comfortable family home and offers 4 bedroom accommodation with 4 reception rooms and a well appointed kitchen which opens directly to the south facing terrace. The property is double glazed with the majority of the windows having been recently replaced by the current owners and there is gas-fired central heating. The property benefits from a large self-contained annexe, ideal for an extended family or for those wishing to work from home. The gardens have been equally well maintained and provide a stunning setting for the properties and enjoy a wonderful southerly aspect and a good deal of privacy.
In summary the accommodation includes a cross passage hallway with reception rooms either side, a well-appointed kitchen with adjacent dining room, providing a lovely entertaining space and with doors to the south facing garden. There is also a study, cloakroom, utility room and garden room which enjoys fabulous views of the gardens. To the rear of the property is a large garage/workshop which could be incorporated into the living space (STP) to provide a further reception room if required. Staircases at either end of the property give access to the first floor where four bedrooms, a family bath/shower room and separate cloakroom can be found. All the main rooms enjoy a wonderful southerly aspect and outlooks over the garden.
The annexe provides a large open plan living space with sitting/dining/kitchen areas. Wide patio doors open to the garden afford lovely views and flood the room with a good deal of light. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and direct access to the integral double garage. On the first floor can be found 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. This property is also double glazed and has gas-fired central heating.
The gardens have been equally well maintained and provide a wonderful setting. A large paved terrace is approached directly from the cottage and provides a great space for alfresco dining. The garden is mainly lawned and interspersed with specimen shrubs and numerous fruit trees. A large driveway provides ample parking for both the cottage and annexe. In all the grounds extend to about 0.88 acres.
The property is located on the edge of this highly desirable village and is within walking distance of an excellent range of amenities including a village store/post office, inn, primary school (rated outstanding by Ofsted), coffee shop, hair dressers, doctors surgery, playing fields and cricket pitch with pavilion.
