This is one of the most gorgeous homes I heave been in for quite some time. The painstaking attention to detail creates the most wonderful ambience with many fine features.

Step Inside - Ground Floor
The property is cosy inside with the whole house having timber double glazed windows and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor except in the living room. Vintage style roll top radiators heat up the living room and upstairs and the flooring is a mixture of carpeting and tiling.
With high ceilings, some exposed beams and a dual aspect the light filled living room has a white log burner for extra warmth which fits perfectly within the fireplace providing a focal point to this lovely room.
The L-shaped kitchen is light and spacious with room for dining and a comfortable seating area. The bespoke hand built solid wood kitchen has Corian work surfaces, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer, a deep ceramic Belfast sink and plenty of Shaker style cupboard storage. French doors lead out to the terrace and to the rear garden.
At the end of the hallway there is also a useful utility room with Corian work tops and a cloakroom with traditional style wash hand basin and w.c.
At the other end of the hallway is the home office which could also be used as a third bedroom as it sits next to the downstairs shower room which has a beautifully tiled walk-in shower with dark wood stained flooring, w.c. and wash hand basin. The skylights and two windows looking out towards the garden make this a bright and airy space.
Step Inside - First Floor
A high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams brings a great sense of space and character to the air-conditioned master bedroom which has a very deep wardrobe and two additional built-in wardrobes. The second double bedroom is also comfortably sized with the benefit of a hatch and ladder to a boarded loft space with power and lighting.
A feature deep clawfoot bath as well as a tiled shower feature in the generously sized luxury main bathroom.
What The Vendor Says - "We fell in love with 'The Stables' at first sight and couldn't believe we had found such a lovely home, it's full of character and charm in a beautiful setting but with all the mod cons. We are truly sorry we have to move due to family illness and if we could, we would take the cottage with us as it's our perfect dream home! Close to the village and within a short distance of city life but with all the rural charm of the country life. We will miss 'The Stables' very much."
Step Outside - The French doors from the kitchen lead out to the terrace with steps leading up to the garden lawn and pond.
Outside, you'll find a detached timber framed garden room, known as 'The Stables Lodge'. Currently styled as a guest double bedroom/sitting room with a small sun room which has the potential to be reworked into an en-suite w.c. with a wash hand basin. This could also be used as a home office or summerhouse.
To the front there is a small garden with a lawn and hedging and a central cherry tree. Beyond the line of shrubs and trees there is a driveway providing parking.
