The Croft is a pretty archetypal detached character cottage with brick elevations beneath a pantiled roof and has been the subject of a sympathetic and thoughtful programme of restoration and reconfiguration over recent years, creating a beautiful character filled home set in landscaped gardens on a no through lane adjacent to open fields.
The accommodation offers a wealth of features with many rooms having exposed beams and reclaimed materials and a solid fuel stove to the sitting room in an exposed brick chimney breast. The heart of the home is a well proportioned open plan dining kitchen which has been reconfigured from the original design to create a far more usable everyday working and living space, benefitting from windows to three elevations and has been modernised with a range of bespoke cottage style units, a combination of granite and oak work surfaces and integrated appliances. In addition there is a useful utility room with cloakroom off. There is a cosy sitting room with access out into the rear garden and separate snug.
To the first floor there are three bedrooms, two being generous doubles with the master suite benefitting from an initial dressing area and ensuite facilities. There is also a superb contemporary bathroom.
The property occupies a delightful established plot which is generous by modern standards and offers a good degree of privacy, having raised lawn and well stocked perimeter borders, paved terrace to the rear making a wonderful outdoor entertaining space linking back into the main reception and kitchen. There is a block set driveway to the front providing ample parking.
Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
