A characterful family residence sat within extensive grounds of just under a quarter of an acre.

Believed to have been built around the middle of the 18th Century, Blacksmith Cottage has been sympathetically restored while the house has been significantly extended, reconfigured and the entire building refurbished, whilst restoring many original features of the cottage and blending the history of the house with modern day living. Extending to 1,700 square foot internally and offering versatile living whilst making the most of a more modern open plan living area.

An entrance lobby provides access to the ground floor accommodation and staircase leading to the first floor. The kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units including a number of integral appliances. A stainless steel gas Rangemaster cooker sits within an alcove with space for a American style fridge freezer adjacent. There are two double glazed windows, useful understairs cupboard for storage and access into the utility room and sitting area.

The utility room forms part of a single storey extension completed by the present owners and enjoys a range of bespoke fitted units and cupboards. A tumble dyer and washing machine are integral along with a ceramic sink unit with mixer taps over. Furthermore, there is a convenient ground floor w.c. and external side door leading onto the rear garden and beyond.

The hub of the home is without doubt the principal sitting area which merges into an extended space currently used as a dining area. A modern set of bi-folds span the full rear elevation of the extension and connect to the outside, leading onto a raised decked area set up for outdoor dining or entertaining. The dining area enjoys tiled flooring with electric underfloor heating mats, operated electronically via an internal control panel.

The main sitting area enjoys a beautiful wood burning stove and has timber flooring and a double glazed sash window to the front elevation providing an abundance of natural light along with the bi-fold doors to the rear.

The ground floor is completed by a flexible second sitting room, snug or fourth bedroom depending on the individuals requirements and enjoys a multi fuel stove along with double glazed windows to the front and rear elevations.

The property is further enhanced by three spacious double bedrooms and an impressive house bathroom, recently updated by the present owners. All three bedrooms benefit from a double glazed window and central heating radiator. It is of particular note that bedroom one is complemented by a contemporary en-suite having a large walk-in shower, pedestal hand wash basin low flush w.c. and a useful built-in storage cupboard.

The first floor accommodation is completed by a stylish modern house bathroom comprising an inset bath with shower attachment over, low flush w.c. and vanity hand wash basin. Furthermore, there is a double fronted built in storage cupboard and contrasting tiling and décor to finish.

To the outside, the garden measures just under a quarter of an acre and enjoys extensive lawned areas along with off street parking for numerous motor vehicles. In 2001, the present owners built a magnificent multi-functional workshop situated to the rear of the garden, being of wooden sectional construction with a painted concrete floor with insulation and lined walls. Services such as power and electric are available to the workshop along with a recently installed air source heat pump. There are three double fronted access gates into the workshop along with a single door. The workshop offers flexibility to be used for either a workshop, home office or commercial use subject to planning consent.

The property is set well back from Main Street with a good sized front garden, being predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed to all three sides by fence, tree and brick boundaries. A pedestrian gate leads into the garden with a pathway running through the centre to the property. A colourful range of planted shrubs and trees provide a lovely addition to the front along with its already charming appearance.

The generous rear garden provides a number of seating areas with the raised decked area immediately off the dining room and a built in pergola. The garden is also mainly laid to lawn being enclosed to all three sides with a fence dividing the more private garden and workshop/parking area.

A large gravel driveway offers the ability to provide off street parking for motor vehicles along with direct access into the workshop. Adjacent to the workshop is a vegetable area comprising a number of specimen trees and a timber framed shed. The propertys boundaries are secured via two solid wooden gates to the northern boundary.

Blacksmiths Cottage is a perfect family home with deceptively spacious accommodation, occupying extensive grounds with a detached workshop. It is therefore as acting agents we strongly advise an inspection at the earliest opportunity.
