This rural and picturesque setting, far from the hustle and bustle of daily life is the setting for this beautiful period home which was previously fully upgraded several years ago but retains its period splendour.

The views from the gardens are stunning. The grounds offer much delight and include a large pool, outbuildings and formal gardens.

Introduction

Nursery Farm Cottage is situated in an idyllic rural setting at the end of a private lane occupying a most wonderful plot in excess of 1/2 acre, enjoying stunning views over the surrounding picturesque countryside. Thoughtfully restored and extended by our client in previous years now with further potential to be realised. Nursery Farm Cottage originally dates back to circa 1750 and features generous accommodation, steeped in character, with exposed timbers, feature fireplaces and beams. There are three versatile receptions rooms enhanced by a stunning bespoke oak and glass sunroom in addition to a large garage. The cottage enjoys the most interesting of grounds, having been originally designed by our client and divided into distinct areas, wonderfully planted with a variety of specimen trees, shrubs and herbaceous beds. The property affords generous parking accessed via double wrought iron gates, with annex potential. Of particular note is the hand crafted farmhouse style kitchen with granite and slate worktops and vast sitting room with an imposing Inglenook fireplace hosting a wood burning stove. The property will appeal to potential purchasers seeking an opportunity to create their ideal home, in a particularly peaceful and private setting.

Description

The covered oak porch opens into the entrance lobby with period charm immediately apparent, including exposed brick walling, ceiling timbers and quarry tiled flooring which flows through to the kitchen accessed via glazed wooden double doors. The kitchen dining room is a vast social space centred upon the original Inglenook fireplace with inset Rayburn, extensive granite worktops, an inset double butler sink and farmhouse style stripped pine units. A delightful breakfast area with views onto the garden from the crafted window seat is a charming venue, complemented by an additional spacious dining area with ample room for a family dining suite. The sitting room is both grand and substantial in size, hosting an attractive Inglenook fireplace complete with wood burning stove from where you can also access the study with fitted Lebanese Cedar units. The sun room is the undoubted show piece, crafted from green oak and glazing, embracing the rear elevation and providing lovely views and access to the gardens. The feature oak staircase leads to the vaulted landing which accesses two large bedroom suites. The master suite is magnificent enjoying a dual aspect, featuring French patio doors onto a balcony area. The most impressive dressing room provides ample storage supplemented by extravagant ensuite facilities complete with Lefroy Brooks roll top bath with claw feet, double shower cubicle with travertine tiling and chancel style wash hand basin. The guest room is also impressive appreciating the exposed brick work and original fireplace opening also with ensuite facilities. From the landing a further staircase leads to a small second floor landing and a loft room, with potential to create further accommodation if desired. Accessed independently or internally is a ground floor annexe potential comprising a kitchen, living room and shower room. This could provide income potential or can be incorporated into the existing living/bedroom space with access from the kitchen.

Outside

Set within mature grounds in excess of 1/2 acre and surrounded by rolling countryside, this really is an idyllic setting and gardener's paradise. There is an excellent double garage with workshop and a large timber shed. There is a 40 foot wildlife pool which would require alterations for conversion to a swimming pool with various lovely seating areas. The grounds enjoy varied seating and lawned area which afford lovely venues for relaxation or entertainment.
