Delightful and tastefully extended Grade II detached cottage offering period features and spacious, versatile accommodation. With a beautiful, mature and landscaped garden enjoying a generous plot of approximately one half of an acre (subject to survey), this charming property offers four reception rooms, five bedrooms and a double garage and workshop.
Securely nestled behind a pair of electric wrought iron gates, Thicketts is a timber framed, part-thatched cottage, the original parts of which date back to the 16th century. Through the impressive gateway, the gravel driveway, lined with trees, sweeps past the house leading to a detached double garage with ample room for parking. The landscaped front garden is well-manicured and a stone pathway winds its way to the front door. Opening directly into the open-plan living / dining room, this beautiful, generously-proportioned room is full of period charm with exposed timbers and an inglenook fireplace with bressummer beam. The bespoke, country-style kitchen boasts both granite and solid wood worktops, solid wood units, a double Butler sink and a dual fuel range oven set within a brick chimney alcove. The part-vaulted ceiling and slate flooring provide the room with additional character charm and the room is further complemented by a walk-in larder and separate utility room. Double doors lead from the kitchen onto the secluded terrace, making this an ideal space for relaxing or entertaining - with the uninterrupted field views adding to the feeling of peace and tranquillity. Opposite the kitchen, across the courtyard and its ornate koi pond, the remaining reception rooms can be found - a bar / garden room, a sitting room with brick fireplace and a dual aspect study. The ground floor accommodation is completed both by a downstairs bathroom and a separate cloakroom at either end of the property. This country home offers two staircases, at either end of the property - one leading to the two inter-connecting, double bedrooms in the original part of the house, the other leading to the remaining rooms. Set within a beautifully landscaped plot, backing onto fields with far-reaching views, the garden offers a courtyard area with koi pond, terrace with covered barbeque area and lawns. Mature trees and shrubs complete these stunning grounds
