Hunters Vale is a charming cottage which, with its characterful brick elevations and fabulous array of period features within, has enormous "chocolate box" appeal, yet is not listed. Whilst the original date of construction is not known, hints of a bygone era are everywhere within, including two fireplaces on the ground floor, exposed beams and a stained glass port hole window. Owing to the property's position on the edge of the Marshwood Vale, and overlooking open fields to the west, fantastic, far-reaching country views can be enjoyed, particularly from the garden room/studio which enjoys two sets of double doors opening directly to the garden.
Internally, the accommodation is spacious and well appointed with a sociable emphasis throughout. The centrepiece is arguably the sitting/dining room which features a beamed ceiling and fireplace housing a multi fuel burner and adjoins the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room when an impressive former inglenook fireplace and the stained glass port hole window can both be found. Enjoying the delightful country views, the garden room/studio is a fantastic place to relax which could also lend itself to use as an occasional bedroom. Also on the ground floor is a utility room which can be accessed from both the garden room and from outside, as well as a cloakroom. On the first floor, the principal bedroom also takes in the country views, with one window opening onto a reinforced roof which could be railed for use as a terrace. There are two further double bedrooms and a luxuriously appointed bathroom with a slipper bath and shower above.OUTSIDE
The property is approached along a shared, gravelled drive which leads to a private parking area. To the side and rear are glorious cottage gardens which are stocked with an exciting array of flora including pear and almond trees in the rear courtyard. Being west and south-facing respectively, both gardens enjoy a sunny aspect, providing multiple excuses for spending time out of doors.SITUATION
