Searching for the perfect home in which your young family can blossom and grow?
Discover a sympathetically-modernized, traditional stone cottage just bursting with character.
Park up on Cottage Croft, before heading to the front, opening the wrought iron gate and stepping up. The traditional front door is fitted with attractive glass panels, drawing the light through.
Enter into a light porch, with a wooden floor and a handy shoe rack by the meter cupboard. Grey carpeted stairs extend up, while the soft white on the walls adds a chic contemporary touch.
Open the oak, glazed door and step into the large lounge. Brimming with traditional features sense the cosy, warmth here.
Overhead, boxed-in original beams are a focal point, complementing the rough-hewn stone fireplace with its inset log-burner; ideal for those wintery nights cuddled up on the corner sofa, which slots in snugly beneath the stairs.
Now removed, the former under-stairs cupboard adds additional depth to the room and is fitted with a glass panel which serves to continue the flow of light between the entrance and lounge. Inset spotlighting adds to the discreet contemporary touches, which soften the original features, whilst allowing homage to be paid to the heritage of the home – an 1830s built weavers cottage.
Sense the solidness of the thick walls, dressed in tones of creamy white and soft cornflower blue. Above the deep window sill, sash windows offer views of the front garden.
Through the glazed oak door, step into the shaker-style kitchen, beautifully dressed in creamy white with a traditional floor.
Recently renovated, spotlights embellish the ceiling, balancing out the traditional element of the feature fireplace, set in its exposed stone chimney breast.
Plenty of cupboards above and beneath the worktops offer an abundance of storage, with a wine rack fitting snugly behind the door.
Storage can even be found in the cupboard housing a modern Worcester boiler, where there is shelving for laundry essentials.
Appliances include a Range cooker in cream and black with new extractor hood, Neff dishwasher and Rangemaster sink. Plumbing is available for a washer and dryer too, and there is depth of storage in the useful pan drawers.
In-keeping with the period of property, a stable-style door with fully-opening window to the top section leads to the rear garden.
Returning to the hall, take the carpeted stairs up to the first floor.
Slip through the door on the left, currently utilised as a second lounge and play room, and admire the original beams spanning the ceiling.
Newly redecorated in jasmine white and chic shadow grey, this inviting room features an original fireplace and enjoys leafy views through the deep-set front window.
Spacious too, one corner currently serves as an office area, with a desk and chair: work space by day, room of relaxation by night.
Across the way, a large double bedroom features more heritage touches including exposed beams and a fireplace inset into the bare brick chimney breast.
Neutral décor prevails, with pretty views over the rear garden and space for all your furniture.
Freshen up in the crisp white bathroom, where a centrally-filling bath has a shower head attachment, alongside a wash basin and WC, all styled in a manner befitting the character of the home.
Retiled and redecorated, note the elegant partial panelling to the walls and the traditional, latched wooden door.
Continue upstairs to the penthouse level, where a feature cascading light feature pours illumination down from above.
To the right, a room currently serving as a nursery provides spacious double sleeping accommodation. Peep into the roomy walk-in wardrobe, handy for all your storage needs. Discover access in this bedroom to a fully boarded, insulated and illuminated loft.
Elegantly decorated in John Lewis Vintage Balloons wallpaper of a pewter blue hue, this bedroom is quiet and peaceful, overlooking the rear garden and leafy trees beyond.
Sneak a peek at the ensuite, containing shower, WC and wash basin.
Across the landing, spy the master bedroom.
So beautifully finished, exposed stone makes for a grand feature wall, with rich dark beams overhead. Space for a king-sized bed and bedside tables alongside other furnishings in addition to a roomy walk-in wardrobe.
Refresh and revive in the recently redecorated ensuite. Fully tiled and spotlit, this room features a shower, WC and wash basin, in addition to Karndean flooring.
Pocket of paradise
Beyond the kitchen door lies a garden haven. Cream painted walls, edged in a border and flanked by railway sleepers outline the main lawn area, decked in low-maintenance artificial grass. Great for children and pets.
A recessed patio nearest the house, is perfect for alfresco dining – with a covered patio heater to one side ready when the sun sets.
To the far end, a new wooden gate leads out to the rear, where parking is available. A built-in barbecue area is nestled in one corner and a spacious storage shed in another.
