We are delighted to bring Little Thatch, a charming cottage that combines character features with a contemporary touch, to the market. The Grade II listed property which is over 400 years old and has been in the same family ownership for 40 years, it has also been extended by the current owners to provide further accommodation over two floors.
The ground floor comprises a dual aspect kitchen/dining room that is fitted with oak fronted units, contrasting marble worktops and a Britannia Range cooker. The room accommodates a good size dining table which enjoys a view through the French doors onto the enclosed garden. The living room boasts a traditional wood burning stove which sits within a brick inglenook. Also on the ground floor there is a spacious walk in shower room and a utility room which has been finished with oak worktops. The utility room allows for further storage space along with a convenient pantry cupboard.
On the first floor there is a large landing area which has been utilised well to offer plenty of storage options. This area currently makes an ideal dressing room but could be used differently if needed. There are two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom which is currently used as an office and a cloakroom.
The property is accessed through a private five bar gate and is set back from the road by a gravel driveway which provides off-road parking for multiple vehicles. The double gates open fully for the potential storage of a caravan within the garden. Also to the front there is a lawn area and a tidy hedgerow which gives a good degree of privacy from the neighbouring property.
A particular feature is the stunning mature garden which has been very well kept by the current owners. Along with the large lawn there is a good size patio area which is ideally located next to the kitchen/dining room, so is the perfect place for outdoor dining. In the garden there are two ponds, a fish pond and a wildlife pond which can be found at the end of the garden lead to by a block paved pathway. Next to this there is a timber constructed office/garden room which has electricity running to it and has also been insulated so it is a useable space all year round. The garden also houses multiple sheds, one of which is particularly large and has a tiled roof whilst another has been insulated and has power and light.
