Cornflower Cottage is a charming, classic and deceptively spacious period cottage with a beautiful large secret rear garden in the heart of this highly sought after picturesque village. It is mid terrace, being one of only 3 cottages, believed to have been former ropemaker's cottages and estimated to date back over 250 years with later additions. The cottage is Listed Grade II of Architectural or Historic Importance. It has main walls of solid stone. The front roof is thatched, although the majority is under slate.
Under the current ownership since 2006, a whole number of improvements have been carried out. The accommodation is deceptively spacious and very well proportioned and presented. There is excellent reception space and three double bedrooms featuring higher than average vaulted ceilings and with potential to create an en-suite shower room. Gas fired central heating is installed together with a wood burner to the living room. The ground floor accommodation has quarry tiled flooring.
The host of character style features typical of its age and type include exposed beams, window seats, beamed inglenook fireplace with former bread oven, solid oak internal doors and exposed floorboards to two of the bedrooms.
On the ground floor, there is an entrance hall, very large living room with an inglenook fireplace and alcove for a TV, separate dining room with French outside doors and under-stairs alcove/cupboard, fitted kitchen with solid oak worktops and Rangemaster electric cooker range, inner hall and a modern, fully tiled shower room. To the first floor, there is a landing with linen cupboard, three good sized bedrooms (two of which with built in wardrobes), and a large bathroom with travertine tiles.OUTSIDE
The beautiful rear garden is a further lovely feature, extending some 125ft depth with part stone walls and very secluded.
The gardens are beautifully laid out and well stocked including a large adjoining crazy paved terrace and beyond, two areas of garden with large expanses of lawn and a whole variety of shrubs and tropical plants including a palm tree and productive grape vine. It is a real sun trap and benefits from timber decking with brick barbeque. Within the second lawn, are a variety of fruit trees including apple and pear, timber summer house and a stone open fronted store. At the far end is a pedestrian gate giving access off Charles Road.HOLIDAY LETTING BUSINESS
