A stunning five double bedroom quintessentially Grade II thatched English cottage situated on 0.83 of an acre in a most enviable quiet and secluded position surrounded by paddocks and adjoining a brook but with the benefit of being just on the outskirts of the town and within walking distance of the local Poulner schools and shops.
The property hasn't been on the market for 50 years and provides particularly spacious and light accommodation for a property of its type believed to have dated back to 1625 with good ceiling height which would also suit a large family and even has further potential to extend subject to planning permission.
Immense character and charm is offered with exposed beams, latch doors, leaded light windows and two beautiful inglenook fireplaces one with a bread oven, a truly rare gem steeped in history but offering scope for modernisation and an opportunity for a buyer to potentially create extra living space and place their own stamp on the property by modernising the kitchen and bathrooms.
Internally within the ground floor there are two hallways, a cloakroom/wc, a study, two/three reception rooms one providing French doors to the gardens, a kitchen/breakfast room with an 'Aga' and two ground floor bedrooms one of which benefits from an en-suite bathroom that also has access to the hallway, due to the flexibility and size of the property the second ground floor bedroom which has an attractive bay and French doors could also be utilised as a third reception/family room offering a bedroom/bathroom/sitting room conveniently situated to one side of the property, ideal for an elderly relative or guest accommodation.
The first floor landing has storage cupboards and provides access to three double bedrooms all benefitting from wardrobes two of which are particularly spacious and can be walked into and a family bathroom/wc.
Outside the property is situated in a glorious position at the end a lane and is accessed through a five bar gate onto gravel off road parking with a garage, Victorian lamp post and lawn to the side. The large rear garden has a vast array of tree and shrub borders and bedding areas with a large patio with raised beds, a well and rockery, all enclosed by fencing with a brook to the rear.
Viewing highly recommended to truly appreciate the glorious setting, size of plot and immense character this delightful home has to offer with lots of potential and offered with no chain, an opportunity not to be missed.
