About this property

Originally built in 1905, on the site of a former cherry orchard, Pine Cottage is a charming family home. The house has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide a very flexible layout whilst still maintaining its unique character. The house occupies a 210ft plot and has many possibilities for further extension (STPP).

Although situated on a main road (in a 30mph zone), the house benefits from many features to minimise the impact of the road. The house benefits from beautiful bespoke aluminium noise-reducing double glazing, a wide high hedge of laurel, holly and hazel which masks the road view/noise and a drive that allows for turning car direction, so that there is no need to reverse into the road. The house is not overlooked by houses at the front or rear and therefore offers a delightful level of seclusion, and privacy, not normally expected in a location such as this.

The house is approached by an asphalt drive, allowing turning and parking for up to three cars. There is also a large garage with remote control up and over door. In front of the house are some raised flower beds leading to four small steps to the front door.

The bright entrance hall benefits from a beautiful stripped wood staircase, stripped doors and skirting’s. There is a coat/meter cupboard and an under stair cloakroom. Doors lead to the dining room and breakfast room.
The dining room has a lovely bay window with a built in window seat below (with hidden storage). There are also two built in cupboards.
The lounge is dual aspect and is accessed via an arch from the breakfast room. To the front is a bay window with views of the hedge and the trees surrounding Stone Meadow beyond. There is a living flame gas fire with brick and slate surround, and a impressive set of craftsman made built in book shelves and cupboards. There is a cable TV point and phone socket (both Virgin Media). The rear window has a view of the greenery in the garden ‘Catio’. This is an area that has been sectioned off and made secure, for use by the owner’s indoor-only cats. This would also make an excellent area to keep chickens, rabbits, or other small animals, but is easily dismantled if not required.

The breakfast room is the cosy heart of this home! Set in the centre of the house, it leads to the kitchen, study, hall and lounge and also houses the boiler cupboard.

The kitchen has a comprehensive range of base units with a laminate worktop. There are matching tall eye-level units. There is space for a dishwasher, fridge and freestanding oven. Both the kitchen and breakfast room benefit from Amtico flooring. A door from the kitchen leads to the utility room.

The utility room has a sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine, space for tumble dryer and a space for a full height fridge freezer. There are also some base units.

The study is entered by a set of French doors from the breakfast room. This bright airy room benefits from a window overlooking the garden, a set of French doors opening onto a seating area and a skylight. This is an ideal room for home working or to even run a business from home. The house benefits from fibre broadband and speeds of up to 300mb (subject to contract with Virgin Media).

The upstairs landing provides access to a partly boarded loft with ladder. There is beautiful window with views of the trees beyond, making the landing bright and airy. There is an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank and all room doors are stripped wood.

The family bathroom consists of a bath, with an Aqualisa shower over, shower screen, toilet and sink vanity.
There are four bedrooms, three good sized doubles with fitted wardrobes and a single.

The stunning rear garden is a fine feature of this property. There is a gravelled area, edged by a low retaining wall, surrounding the house that leads to the back garage door and the wrought iron side gate with access to the front garden (running alongside the garage). Shallow steps lead up onto the main lawn area and patio. The recently installed Indian sandstone patio and paving area is stunning and is surrounded by gorgeous flower beds, shrubs and trees. The garden extends to in excess of 160ft and also features a new summerhouse.

Planning permission was previously granted (now expired) to demolish the garage and utility and build a two storey side extension to include a master bedroom with ensuite, garage and larger utility. There are many options for further extension and internal reconfiguration.
