Guide price

Bedrooms: 3

Quince Cottage is a truly endearing home, located in the very heart of this thriving village that is packed with useful amenities.

Internally there are two charming reception rooms- firstly a cosy sitting room with a feature open fireplace, exposed wooden floorboards and a good sized under stairs storage cupboard, and also a separate dining room with a 'Jotul' log burning stove with an ornate surround and a continuation of the wooden floorboards. There is a 17ft triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room with slate flooring and a corner dresser, exposed beams, and a 4 ring electric hob with oven and grill. A useful utility room was added by the current owner in 2015 which incorporates the electric boiler and space and plumbing for appliances. On the first floor there is a wonderfully light and airy refitted bathroom with great views, a double width corner shower and standalone roll top bath. There is a double bedroom on this floor with a cupboard over the stairs, as well as a flexible library / occasional fourth bedroom. On the second floor there is a small study area under the large Velux skylight and two further bedrooms enjoying the far reaching views.

Outside, there is a single garage to the rear (accessed through George Mews) and a timber clad outside studio that would be ideal for any artist or anyone wanting a therapy/treatment room or needing to work from home. The south facing cottage garden is well maintained and bigger than it first appears with a seating area immediately to the rear adjacent to a Quince tree and wood store. The garden leads through to a further secluded seating area and lawn behind the studio, with a small pond, established shrubs and plants as well as blackcurrant and redcurrant bushes.
