East Cottage dates back to the 1790s and this history is captured in its thatched roof and traditional stone exterior. In 2004 a bespoke extension was added by the current owners which maximises natural light and has transformed the cottage into a luxurious family home. The modern design of East Cottage has been sympathetic to the original traditional features and the accommodation now comprises an attractive open-plan kitchen/family room with traditional stone walls and exposed timber beams, resulting in a bright spacious room ideal for family living or entertaining, with French doors that open to the south in the summer, a cosy Aga and wood burning stove for the winter months. Further through to the entrance hall/dining area, this naturally light space has a predominately glass wall to the south taking in the stunning views beyond.
Continuing on the ground floor is a utility room, cloakroom, family bathroom, master bedroom with En-suite and a sizable sitting room, a cosy and inviting space which benefits from natural light with doors opening on to a decked area to enjoy the evening sun. In the corner of the sitting room is a study area with a unique curved door offering additional flexibility. Ascending feature staircase to the first floor leads to a large double bedroom which could lend itself to alternate uses.
The accommodation, over two floors, comprises:
Ground Floor: Open plan Kitchen/family room, dining area, sitting room, master bedroom with en-suite, family bathroom, utility room, cloakroom.
First Floor: Double bedroom
East Cottage is set within its own expansive grounds extending to approximately 1.65 acres (0.68 Ha). The garden is predominantly down to lawn and incorporates a number of feature stones.
