Property Details

4 2 2
**VENDORS SUITED**RECENTLY RENOVATED**QUIET LOCATION**A charming Grade II listed detached character cottage oozing kerb appeal and enjoying a fabulous rural backdrop with views over fields to Duncliffe Woods and sitting in just under an acre of grounds. The cottage is located in the hamlet of Stour Row which boasts an active community with many events taking place in the village hall and there is also a church. Nearby facilities include the Udder Farm Shop which has a restaurant, the Kings Arms public house which also serves food and the village of Marnhull is just about two miles away. The cottage has been a much cherished home to our sellers for over eleven years during which time they have invested a great deal of time and energy creating a traditional cottage home with a modern twist. We believe that the original part of the cottage dates to the 1650's with a sympathetic extension completed about two years ago. The cottage retains many character features, such as, thatched roof which was replaced about two years ago, cottage style windows with leaded light inlays and deep sills, fireplace with Bressumer Beam and bread oven, exposed stone walls and floorboards. Catering for contemporary living, the cottage has oil fired central heating to radiators or underfloor heating to the extension and some double glazing or secondary glazing. The hub of the house has a range of bespoke country style kitchen units and from the dining area bi-folding doors open to allow the countryside in. Viewing is essential to see what this home has to offer.
