This terraced cottage is steeped in history, with origins dating back to the late 16th or early 17th century. The property is a listed building, constructed primarily from sandstone rubble under a tiled pitched roof. The accommodation briefly comprises; three double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room), farm house style kitchen / diner, living room with study area, family bathroom and utility room.
The character cottage offers a surprising degree of privacy adjoining the tidal waters of Millbrook Lake in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The gardens and courtyard are surrounded by farmland and woodland.
The property has recently been connected to mains water supply, having previously relied upon a private supply from the fields above. Dexter’s Cottage also owns the freehold to a historic barn and has a licence for parking cars beside the lake opposite the cottage.
On the ground floor, entrance to the property is provided by a historic storm porch with ample storage. A heavy set traditional door opens into a hallway with flagstone flooring and further storage. This leads into the kitchen, staircase to bedroom 3 and into the living room.
The kitchen is a fantastic room heaped in character yet fully functional, with beamed ceilings, a part glazed door that leads out into the gardens, a range of wall mounted units which are complimented by a granite effect roll edge work surface with space for cooker and integrated slimline dishwasher. A Rayburn (AGA) cooker also services the hot water and central heating, leaving plenty of space for a kitchen table.
The living room is a beautiful space, with a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, again beams hug the ceiling and French windows open onto the garden and bathe the room in light. At the far end of the room is a wood burning stove, handily linked to a back boiler. A second set of stairs leads to the first floor. A door also leads to the utility room, which is more a modern lean to style construction with Velux windows and a range of kitchen units, wooden work surface and Belfast sink and space for fridge/freezer and plumbing for washing machine as well as plenty of storage. There is access to the rear garden.
Upstairs there is a healthy degree of separation between the three bedrooms. Each bedroom provides ample storage and one benefits from an en-suite shower room.
This property owns the freehold to an impressive 17th century barn, the usage of which is split between the three properties.
