Located on a quiet country lane close to village amenities, this fully refurbished and extended home is available with NO CHAIN. Although very little of the original 18th century, thatched cottage survives the period charm of Botts Cottage lives on and the new contemporary twist commissioned by the current owners with the help of local architect has proven to be a very successful collaboration. This mix of architectural styles and use of modern materials has resulted in high levels of energy efficiency and just over 2600 sq ft of accommodation. The sprawling ground floor made up of several reception rooms is centered around a large, open plan family kitchen fitted by Charnwood Interiors, and an Orangery On the first floor four bedrooms are served by two bathrooms and a ground floor family room and adjacent wet room have been designed to cater for those seeking annex accommodation. Electric gates open to a generous driveway which provides hard standing for countless vehicles and access to an oversized single garage. Designed for ease of maintenance and extremely private the garden enjoys a pleasant, south westerly aspect and has a Mediterranean feel. To avoid disappointment early viewing is recommended.
