Property Summary

A perfect mix of old and new, Floral Cottage is a Grade II Listed thatched cottage full of character yet with the benefit of having been carefully modernised in keeping with this 16th Century home.

Full Details

This charming, thatched cottage is a period-home lovers dream with all the character features you would hope to find in a 16th Century village property. Floral Cottage has beamed ceilings, an Inglenook fireplace, window seats, latch-lock ironmongery and a dry-stone wall boundary, to name but a few of the retained attributes. Blending well are the newer elements lovingly added by the current owners including the recently completed kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke fitted units with quartz worktop and Travertine flooring.

The accommodation has a lovely flow with two reception rooms with herringbone wooden floor, a kitchen/breakfast room, downstairs cloakroom off the sun room and large utility/boot room ideal for country living. Upstairs is the family bathroom and three bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room having a separate staircase, making it ideal for multi-generational living.

Externally the cottage is set back from the road with a good-size lawn frontage. Double wooden gates to the side access the rear garden with a large garage and parking for several vehicles. In addition there is a lawn area and sunken patio.
