The most gorgeous Grade II listed semi-detached cottage, full of character and beautifully presented, standing on a large level plot with excellent parking and detached garage/office.
Tipsy Cottage is a 'picture book' 16th century cottage with stone elevations to the front and black and white timbered elevations to the rear. The spacious accommodation is completely charming and has generous proportions for a property of this age, with original features and fabulous character combining superbly with contemporary fittings and stylish decoration.
A pretty pathway leads to the front door and the canopied porch, with side access to the rear garden. In the hallway, there is a useful storage cupboard and 'L' shaped cloakroom with tiled floor and modern suite. A glazed door opens up into a wonderful sitting room with the original inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Painted ceiling beams and exposed stonework add to the character, there is fitted corner seating next to the fireplace, a useful storage cupboard and two deep ledged windows.
Open to the sitting room is the dining room, with exposed painted brick walls and original beam and door leading to the garden. The entertaining space in Tipsy Cottage is excellent and the present owners have re-modelled the kitchen, making it ideal for relaxed dining with a central island/breakfast/supper bar with wine fridge and inset microwave. There is a good range of units with fitted appliances to include a 5 ring Rangemaster cooker with extractor hood over, dishwasher and larder style fridge/freezer and underfloor heating. Full bi-folding doors open out to the garden and a raised decked area making this the perfect arrangement for al fresco dining. Just beyond the kitchen, accessed from outside is a useful laundry storeroom with space for double stacking the washing machine and dryer.
Stairs lead up to a very pretty 'L' shaped landing with two windows overlooking the garden. The main double bedroom is full of character with exposed stone and 'A' frame, deep silled window and shuttered window to the front, overhead storage and a bank of fitted wardrobes. It benefits from a large en-suite shower room, fitted with a modern suite including a moulded basin with storage under. Bedroom two has fitted bedroom furniture and storage, painted floor boards and dual aspect windows and bedroom three is a further double room with two windows to the rear, painted beams and a fixed ladder up to a fully insulated and boarded loft space, with lighting, that has been excellent fun as an attic 'den' but also offers useful storage space. There is a smartly appointed shower room with moulded wash hand basin with storage under and w.c. and the whole property is tastefully decorated in cool colours that enhance the period features.
The rear garden of Tipsy Cottage is exceptional and unexpected in that it is a large, level and private space with a wide square raised deck and fitted seating, an outdoor kitchen, a further tucked away seating area to the rear with wood store and gated side access. There is secure gated access to the rear of the garden to the driveway that provides parking for at least three cars and leads to the converted black and white detached garage, presently arranged as a large store room and office with power, light, water supply and access to ceiling storage.
