This charming Grade II listed cottage is tucked away off the High Street and is thought to date back to the 1400s with a wealth of original features throughout. Set amongst beautiful gardens of approx 0.27 acres, it must be viewed to fully appreciate just how special it is.
The front door opens into the spacious dining hall with oak flooring and beams to the walls and ceiling. The bespoke free standing kitchen is newly re-fitted and is an absolute joy with a range of solid wooden units and granite work surfaces, including a pastry board and an Aga Rangemaster for the discerning cook. There is also a pantry cupboard with microwave housing and a fabulous dresser, whilst the Belfast sink unit is built with solid oak worktops and drainer. An oak breakfast bar provides seating and there is access to both the downstairs cloakroom and rear utility lobby which has plumbing for a washing machine and external doors to the front and rear. The impressive living room has a grand inglenook fireplace with original bressumer beam, bread oven and a multi fuel stove, perfect for those winter evenings. The living room has oak flooring and original oak latch doors, one leading to the study/snug. Unusually all downstairs reception rooms are dual aspect, which really bucks the stereotype of darker older houses, Tithe Cottage is gloriously bright and sits nestled atop of a gentle hill behind the High Street.
The first floor landing leads to all bedrooms. The master bedroom has a range of built in wardrobes offering ample storage. A brace and latch door leads to the fabulous en suite bathroom with a free standing roll top bath, corner shower, wc and wash hand basin. The second double bedroom also has a lovely en suite bathroom with a roll top bath and corner shower. There is an additional third double bedroom again with a host of original oak beams.
To the front, a five bar gate opens onto a large gravelled driveway providing good off road parking. A pathway meanders up through the gardens to the front door. The gardens are made up of lovely lawns, various flowers, shrubs and a well. The front of the house is a picture in the evenings, illuminated by lanterns and a Wisebox garden lighting system. There is a summer house which has electrics, heating and WIFI and makes a perfect office for those wishing to work from home. To the rear of the property are open fields, Tithe Cottage enjoys a ROW through a private side gate and accross the field to nearby footpaths.
