GROUND FLOOR As you step into the property, it is instantly apparent that the décor compliments the traditional features. With a newly added porch to extend the entrance hallway, the original stone door frame has been retained and harmonized with wood and stripped back elegance. Every consideration has been given to the incorporation of the historical key pieces that are much coveted by buyers in todays market. Greenhead Cottage is both credible and appealing for this very nature. The wooden beams and flooring are taken through into the dining room whilst carpeted stairs lay ahead. The sitting room with inglenook fireplace has a beautifully restored solid stone lintel. The duel fuel cast iron stove is the main focal point in the comforting room with spacious accommodation for seating a large family. The neutral arrangement of the property ensures it is bright and airy throughout. The dining room offers additional reception space and easily welcomes a large dining suite and space for additional furniture. A locally sourced cast iron stove with unique design sits proudly in the inglenook fireplace ensuring the room is heated efficiently. In addition to this, the beams and garden window with classical deep window sill all add to the appeal of this gorgeous dining area. Solid oak steps lead down to the bright and airy breakfast kitchen with stunning slate floors. The kitchen has a vast range of soft close wooden cabinets located to the floor and walls including display cabinets and wine store. Integrated appliances include a Belling 5 ring stove with complimenting chimney extractor above and ceramic Belfast sink with separate ceramic drainer and traditional mixer tap. The travertine tiling is fused with crisp white décor and ambient cabinet lighting, a breakfast bar and classical style radiator.
From the kitchen, a utility room is set to the rear of the cottage with convenient access out to the rear garden. The utility room has space for a washing machine and dishwasher and the property boiler is contained within this area. The adjacent downstairs cloakroom benefits from a counter top basin and back to wall toilet. It is easy to see why Greenhead Cottage is an ideal family home.
