Butlers Oak is a fascinating archetypal detached period cottage offering a wealth of features and a delightful homely atmosphere. Externally the property offers a deceptive and beautifully established plot, tucked away to the rear of the cottage is an idyllic garden of generous proportions lovingly landscaped over the years to create a wonderful outdoor space.
The cottage offers a versatile level of accommodation which to the ground floor presents three main receptions each with their own individual character with heavily beamed ceilings, attractive chimney breasts and fireplaces. To the rear of the property is a fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and adjacent utility area, off the kitchen is a pitched roof extension creating a versatile garden room with delightful aspect into the garden. There is a useful ground floor cloakroom and barrel vaulted cellar. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, again each offering their own character and main bathroom.
The plot extends to approximately quarter of an acre with generous gated driveway and beautiful gardens to the rear, all located at the heart of this much sought after and well placed village.
The property is offered to the market with no upward chain and benefits from bespoke double glazed cottage style windows which have been sympathetically installed to maintain the attractive facade of the property. In addition there is gas central heating with upgraded boiler.
Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
