Miles and Barr are delighted to offer to the market this 3 bedroomed detached cottage which dates back to the 1700s.

The property is set in a stunning plot that measures just under half an acre, full of mature fruit trees and backing on to the Stourmouth Stream. There are beautiful period features throughout with wooden beams and an original brick floor in the dining room.

In its current layout you enter through the rear doors leading into the garden room. This is a beautiful room with a wood burner and double glass doors looking over the extensive rear garden. Off the garden room, at the rear, is the kitchen with its stone sink and recess which once housed a Rayburn. Another Rayburn or log burner could easily be reinstalled. There is a walk-in larder which houses the central heating boiler and shelving.

The garden room also leads through to the dining room, which has a beautiful floor that has been lifted and relaid from the original bricks. Also at the front of the cottage is the lounge with another wood burner, door through to the kitchen and a cupboard under the stairs.

The stairs lead up the middle of the property. Upstairs bedroom one has a wardrobe cupboard and fire place for another wood burner if desired. Bedroom two is another generous bedroom with built in bookcases. Finally bedroom three has a built in cabin bed with storage under.

There is a spacious 5 piece bathroom. The landing has a large step in airing cupboard, and access to a fully boarded loft space which could house a fourth bedroom/office.

Externally, single and double gates lead into the idyllic back garden with its breathtaking view across the stream to miles of open fields. It is a perfect place for keen gardeners and bird watchers with numerous mature fruit trees, a log store and numerous sheds. There is a working well, two power points, outside butler sink and a functional jetty for your rowing boat. The property has ample space for numerous cars with a double carport and drive.
