Ivy Cottage is one of the signature properties in the village, occupying grounds extending to circa half an acre. Occasionally a property of quite exceptional quality comes to the market and the sale of Ivy Cottage provides one of those increasingly rare opportunities.

Built approximately 22 years ago, the current owners have continuously made internal improvements and skilful extensions above the triple garage forming a further two double bedrooms with en-suite facilities.

Ivy Cottage provides spacious and well planned accommodation appointed to an exceptional standard throughout, skilfully designed with family living and entertaining in mind. Maintained to the current owners specification with meticulous attention to detail, complemented by inspiring fixtures and fittings including a cast iron multi fuel burner set within a handmade fire place surround.

The property welcomes you into a most impressive spacious entrance hall with a turned staircase leading up to a galleried landing. There is a useful understairs storage space and a ground floor cloakroom comprising a hand wash basin and low flush w/c. All the ground floor rooms are of excellent proportion and include a formal dining room, extensive lounge and snooker room or home office which can also be utilised for a range of purposes depending on individual requirements.

The bespoke breakfast kitchen has a comprehensive range of units complemented by rounded edge worktops and modern stylish décor. Integrated appliances include a large electric hob with extractor canopy over, dishwasher, fridge and two twin ovens. There is an internal door which gives access into the triple garage. A useful utility room is located off the kitchen which has a stainless steel sink unit and drainer, provisions for laundry facilities and space for a freestanding fridge freezer.

The first floor is centred around a magnificent galleried landing and serves five double bedrooms and house bathroom. The lovely principal bedroom is dual aspect and enjoys views across the garden and countryside beyond. The en-suite has been upgraded to a high standard in recent years, comprising a walk in shower, hand wash basin and w/c. There are then four additional double bedrooms, three of which are complemented by en-suite facilities. A good sized home office will also be found off the landing.

It is of particular note, bedrooms two and three were skilfully created as part of a garage extension approximately 15 years ago and form two exceptionally good sized bedrooms with shower facilities. We understand full planning permission was granted alongside the building control certificate.

Outside, the property is approached through entrance gates up a resin driveway with parking areas to the front for numerous motor vehicles. The property is complemented by an attached triple garage, which is operated directly via an electric remote access. Internally, there is an area designed for wash and w/c services and ample space for further storage.

The private rear garden extends to approximately 0.45 acres, having a predominantly lawned garden and adjoining paved patio area. There is a brick built detached outbuilding, having power and lighting, perfect for a workshop. With small cost involved, this could be renovated to a home office study or conference room. The present owners are currently using this as a gymnasium.

Locally, the walks along the canal are particularly scenic and contain some of the county s most dramatic scenery. The area is renowned for walking and riding and offers some the region s finest country pursuits. Mooring rights can be obtained at Heck Basin or on the canal subject to certain terms and conditions.

It is not very often that properties of this size and nature with associated land come to the market. As the acting agents, we strongly advise an early inspection at the earliest opportunity.
