A chocolate box cottage with gorgeous character features in the heart of a picturesque Bride Valley village. Lovely, easily maintained terraced garden. Grade II Listed.
Libra is an endearing chocolate box cottage located at the heart of one of the Bride Valley's most desirable villages. With its mellow stone elevations beneath a thatched roof, this Grade II Listed property is the epitome of a classic country cottage, and the character of the frontage is reflected inside where a wealth of period features can be seen including an inglenook fireplace, cottage doors and exposed floorboards. The property is presented to an exacting standard with a contemporary, yet complementary, bathroom suite, a delightful rustic-style fitted kitchen and a fresh, neutral scheme of decoration throughout, creating a ready-to-move-in-to home with endless charm.
Stepping through the wooden front door, the appeal of this wonderful cottage can be felt immediately. The entrance hall lies open to the comfortable sitting/dining room, where an inglenook fireplace with wood burner, wooden floors and a window seat make it clear that this is a home with personality of its very own. The kitchen offers the best of both worlds; fitted units beneath a wooden work surface with rustic edges reflect the property's historic origins whilst a shelved larder and spaces for appliances, including a washer/dryer, offer excellent modern convenience. Also on the ground floor is the bathroom which is beautifully appointed with a contemporary suite and classic mosaic-style tiles. A concealed wooden staircase leads from the sitting room to the first floor where there are two well proportioned bedrooms.OUTSIDE
From the kitchen the rear door opens directly to a lovely rear garden which is arranged into a series of shallow terraces, taking full advantage of the generous plot. Each terrace has been designed with easy maintenance in mind, particularly the uppermost, and largest space which is primarily laid to gravel with lavender borders and features a sun deck; the perfect place to relax, dine or entertain out of doors and maximise the benefits of the south facing aspect.SITUATION
