Incredibly unique and providing an opportunity to purchase a family home with historical interest and an abundance of character, our 3 bedroom Windmill Cottage sits in very spacious gardens with a detached tandem garage and hard standing driveway, adequate parking for several vehicles.
Without question Windmill Cottage is a truly wonderful property which feels like a safe sanctuary, set well back from the quiet residential lane, you would not even be aware of the existence of this historic home which boasts fabulous character.
The once working Windmill has now been converted into a three bedroom property with two bedrooms located to the first floor and a third bedroom to the ground floor, if so required.
The first floor has an incredibly spacious house bathroom and landing which if reconfigured could easily become a further bedroom with ensuite provisions. Added to this, the studio to the tower which again provides scope for occasional use, this property has an abundance of versatile options for new homeowners.
As soon as you enter the property through the open porch, you step onto a travertine styled flooring with the snug reception/bedroom to the right. The original external wall of the windmill provides instant appealing architecture and the use of timber and glass doors draws in natural lighting.
The main sitting room is located in the windmill with staircase following the curvature of the walls and bespoke glazing providing views over the gardens. The room is installed with a cast iron wood burning stove and additional radiators. With nooks and crannies expected in a home with traditional features, the sitting room leads out to the garden.
The contemporary kitchen is open plan to the large dining room and includes a butlers pantry leading back to the entrance hall and a separate utility room with cloak room facilities. This area could be converted to include shower facilities for the ground floor bedroom. Another door takes you out to the garden which is perfect for those household laundry duties.
The kitchen includes a Whirlpool 4 ring gas hob, Baumatic inbuilt microwave oven, electric fan assisted oven and chimney extractor fan. Space for a free standing fridge freezer is located in the butlers pantry and the kitchen is completed with a glittery quartz work surface.
The garden room has the best views of the grounds towards the raised garden island with Cherry tree and an abundance of colours with spring flowers strategically placed for colour and presentation.
To the first floor, two large bedrooms appreciate built in wardrobes and ensuite facilities with the master bedroom again enjoying the long range views, dressing area and a vast range of built in drawers beneath the oversized bespoke glazing.
Loft ladders take you to the studio to the tower section of the windmill. A delightful architectural aspect with potential to become a home office, art studio or occasional bedroom, this space is a lovely addition to the home.
Externally, the gardens set well back from Sandy Lane are a gardeners paradise. With plenty of fruit tress including a Bramley Apple tree and Plum trees to the rear, the garden has sunken vegetable patches, large lawn, raised flower beds and pathway leading to the cottage and boundaries. There is a timber shed and an original old earth closet now used as a log store.
Reached via a driveway on a slight incline, the remainder of the gardens are flat and landscaped and therefore perfect for children and pets.
A large tandem garage with plenty of windows and pedestrian access to the rear would be a great workshop but also houses two cars perfectly.
