With an intriguing history dating back to the 1800s, this charming cottage is tucked away and screened from the road by a long leafy drive winding past the neighbouring Georgian manor house.

It has been recently refurbished by the current owners to a high standard and offers flexible living accommodation with an attic room having the potential to be used as a 3rd bedroom.

A handsome red brick exterior with pretty canopied porch fronts a gravelled driveway with an area of lawned garden to the front.

On the left is the charming living room which is a cosy retreat with a wood burner and its warm wooden flooring contrasting beautifully with the neutral décor. A front aspect window floods the room with light and two fitted cupboards offer great storage space.

Across the hallway is the dining room, also bathed in natural light from its windows. It is perfectly placed next to the kitchen for family dinners.

Next door is the stylish kitchen/breakfast room which has plenty of bespoke wooden country style cabinets that provide ample storage space top and bottom. Neutral walls and warm wooden flooring and counter tops add character and a glazed door leads out to a paved terrace, perfect for your morning coffee.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, the master bedroom delivers luxury with a fitted wardrobe and a large en-suite bathroom.

Across the split landing the bathroom`s spa like tranquillity is created by its painted wooden panelling and its gleaming white bathroom fittings.

Light streams into the second bedroom, also a generous double benefiting from built in wardrobes.

Up a further flight of stairs to the second floor, a vaulted attic room could potentially be converted into a 3rd bedroom.

The front garden is a charming space with borders for plants, plenty of space for alfresco dining and a backdrop of leafy trees.

This fabulous period home, close to Holden Pond and opposite the green common and woodland beyond, is welcoming, spacious and well-presented; perfect to move in straight away. It is also a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links. A must see!
