A truly stunning, four bedroom house which offers fabulous, long range country views and a large, immaculately kept garden with a characterful outbuilding.
Built approximately 100 years ago, 1 Highfield Cottage has been the subject of a major and painstakingly thorough refurbishment programme, which included a large and high quality extension and a good sized south facing conservatory to the rear of the property. The property occupies a quiet and elevated location.
A good sized family house, the first floor comprises of four bedrooms and a family bathroom, all of the windows allow for great views over the surrounding countryside, from the plots elevated location. On the ground floor there is a good sized hallway leading through into a large, south facing sitting room with a multi-fuel burner and there is a further sitting/dining room next door. There is a recently added conservatory which benefits from being able to be used all year round and has central heating installed. The kitchen units are solid wood with a range cooker and there is a most useful and large, walk-in larder.
Outside, the property will appeal to a gardening enthusiast. The current owners have green fingers and have created an impressive garden with well stocked beds and attractive flat areas of lawn. There are various separate areas which make up the garden with a seating bench having been created out of a fallen tree in the front garden. A characterful and partly brick built outbuilding is located between the driveway and the rear garden and is currently used for storage, playroom and boat store. There is significant potential for this building to be a workshop or home office or further accommodation (subject to obtaining consents if required). The property has ample car parking to the front of the property and plenty of space to construct a garage, if required.
