Situated in a quiet residential location near Catisfield Village is this beautiful four bedroom Victorian Cottage. This special home has been much loved, being in the same family for over 25 years. The cottage, set back from the road, is approached by a block paved driveway- offering generous parking for at least two vehicles. Inside the cottage are two generously proportioned reception rooms with Kahrs engineered oak flooring, both featuring original working Victorian cast iron open fireplaces; additionally these two rooms can be screened from each other with a set of bespoke oak acoustic bi-fold doors. To the rear of the cottage is a bright and sunny Kitchen/Breakfast room which is open to the conservatory with French doors leading on to the patio and garden. The Kitchen was refitted in 2016 with ample cupboards, a range of integrated appliances, and showcases a stunning fitted vintage style dresser. On the first floor are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles, with Bedroom 1 benefitting from an en-suite Shower Room and original fireplace. Bedroom 2 along with Bedroom 3 has the original pine flooring restored. Bedroom 3, currently being used as a Utility area, also has its original cast iron fireplace. Bedroom 4 on the second floor is a generous dual aspect room which would also make a superb hobbies room or home office.
A particular feature of this property is the glorious 100 ft south facing garden which features two terrace areas, perfect for entertaining and relaxing outside. Gravel pathways are flanked by mature trees, hedging and shrub borders leading to a wrought iron gate that leads to a surprisingly large sunny and secluded area, measuring approximately 11m x 12m, which could be built on for use as ancillary accommodation.
