Description

Hortons are delighted to offer this exceptional two-bedroomed cottage to the market.

A traditionally built Hornton Stone semi-detached cottage with thatched roof and storm porch. The property is located on the outskirts of the village and retains some of its original character, tastefully styled within more modern interior design led choices. This must be viewed to avoid disappointment.

The current owners have done an incredible job of renovating the property during their ownership, sympathetically improving the cottage throughout with nods to its historic past. The ground floor has been extended in the form of a bright garden room, and there would be scope to extend at the side further, two-storey, subject to relevant planning requirements.

The accommodation comprises of a storm porch entrance with thatch roof, sitting room, reception room, kitchen, dining/ garden room, two bedrooms, family bathroom, garage, summerhouse, south facing garden.

There are original tile floors upon entry, exposed original flooring in places, original windows, to name just a few of the original features. The owners did a superb job in sourcing a match of the original tiles to continue into the garden room, these are reclaimed from the midlands.

The cottage is constructed of local Hornton stone, a traditional honey coloured ironstone typical of the area, and is under an attractive thatch roof. It's known that Swiss Cottages was once one dwelling, owning much of the surrounding area. The cottage is well placed on the Sibford Road, being only a short walk to the local schooling, but also some of the areas best circular walks.

The sitting room is a good size and layout, and complimented well by the second reception room the other side of the central staircase, which could be used in a variety of ways. The kitchen is a very good size, with the vaulted ceiling, range master cooker and Belfast sink being some of the standout features. The garden room is a superb addition to the property, with exposed stone wall, and windows overlooking the matured and plentiful gardens, looking towards the summerhouse. On the first floor are the two bedrooms and family bathroom. Bedroom two features a well designed built in wardrobe and ensuite.

The garden enjoys a superb degree of privacy, and also has door to garage and side gate to the shared driveway adjacent to the property.

Those looking to live within this highly sought after village must view this house to avoid disappointment. The house is not Grade listed, nor is it within the conservation area, allowing tasteful modern changes to be made.
