Peace Cottage is an endearing attached stone cottage which is located in a superb semi-rural position and benefits from far-reaching countryside views. The property dates back to the 19th century and is understood to have originally been the Hare and Hounds pub before it was relocated in the early 1900s, and as such benefits from some glorious character features including an impressive inglenook fireplace in the sitting room, window seats and shutters. Despite it's historic origins, the property is not listed and has been greatly improved and refurbished under the current ownership with attention paid to retaining and enhancing the original features wherever possible. The result is comfortable, spacious and light accommodation offering the very best of old and new with every modern convenience on hand.
The property is presented in excellent order throughout and benefits from high ceilings which, with a fresh scheme of decoration, ensure that each of the rooms is filled with natural light. This is particular the case on the ground floor where there are two reception rooms, including a charming dining room and a cosy sitting room with inglenook fireplace, a fully fitted kitchen with oil-fired Rayburn, integrated electric double oven, hob and fridge, a useful utility room/larder and a large family bathroom.
The bedrooms are arranged over the two upper floors with two sizeable double rooms on the first floor, together with a cloakroom, and an impressive principal bedrooms suite on the second floor complete with a stylishly appointed ensuite shower room and a study/dressing area on the landing. From the upper floors, the far-reaching views can be enjoyed to their best advantage, particularly across the open fields to the rear.OUTSIDE
Another area which has been greatly improved by the current owners is the west-facing front garden which has been beautifully landscaped and provides a charming setting for spending time out of doors. The property also enjoys a large detached side garden which is primarily laid to lawn, culminating in a wooded area, and is best placed to enjoy the delightful views.
Peace Cottage benefits from a concrete driveway and a single lock-up garage. Please note that the adjoining cottages have right of way over the driveway to access their own garages.SITUATION
