Offering an opportunity to own a small piece of English history, this original 17C farm workers cottage has been lovingly restored and refurbished to the exacting standards of English Heritage. Residing in a prestigious development with double garage and gardens, the cottage offers much character within.
Once originally owned by the same family for over 450 years and linked to the history of Robin Hood, the development has bought back to life 3 of the 4 main buildings, with the 4th still an ongoing project. The original farm workers cottage has kept many original stone features and is sympathetic to its surroundings and its heritage. Grade II listed, the cottage sits proudly within the development and is assured the potential to immediately move straight in given the high quality furnishings throughout.
Externally the cottage is provided with an adjacent detached double garage that has an electric shutter with fob controls and has personal parking. The boundary walls to the cottage encompass a well established lawn with infant laurel hedging and a natural stone flagged pathway to the main entrance. To the rear, a spacious patio allows for the addition of garden furniture for one to enjoy the evening sunshine.
Internally, no attention to detail has been spared in the design and refurbishment of the cottage. The large family kitchen easily supports a dining table and includes a stunning granite work top with Belfast sink and chrome mixer tap, Rangemaster oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and all completed with wooden sage green cabinets with cup holder handles and a striking mirrored splash back. The porcelain tiled floor runs throughout the entire cottage and is installed with underfloor heating. Above, the beamed architecture fused with understated down lighting guarantees a comforting environment and enviable design.
The sitting room with carved stone fire surround is equipped with a flue for a log burner or gas for a traditional gas fire and again with porcelain tiled floor, the dimensions allow for plentiful family seating. The beamed ceiling and wooden internal doors are all in keeping with mullion windows and the overall character of the cottage.The main bedroom with enclosed shower has sockets either side of where a king size bed would reside and door for convenience leads out to the exterior patio. Additional to the shower facilities, the property includes a stylish house bathroom with free standing bathtub and freestanding floor mount bathtub filler with hand shower in chrome, close coupled toilet and Roca washbasin with pedestal. Partially tiled in soft shades, the room also includes a towel radiator in chrome. The second bedroom is suitable as an office or nursery amongst many suggestions and again is completed with porcelain tiles to the floor.
