About this home
Birch View is a very pretty two bedroom country cottage, thought to date back as far as the mid 1700s and constructed of brick and sandstone. The current owners have greatly improved the property with the recent addition of a green oak and glass extension creating a stunning kitchen and entertaining space at the rear with some beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.
It is immediately obvious that this has been a well maintained and well loved home. The cottage has a wealth of character throughout with original exposed beams and fireplace in the sitting and dining room. The property is in excellent decorative order, with a scheme of further improvements being undertaken prior to completion (this will include some re-plastering, refitting of the first floor shower room and ground floor utility/ bathroom).
Double gates open from the lane to a block paved driveway leading to a detached double garage and separate car port that provide plentiful covered parking. There is an additional pedestrian gate from the lane, with a path leading to the front door with a covered porch.
There are two reception rooms on the ground floor, the sitting room to the right with an attractive exposed brick fireplace and views over the front and side gardens. To the left of the front door is the dining room, again with wooden flooring, original beams and a log burning stove.
There is a large utility room off the dining room which the vendors are currently re-fitting with the addition of a separate ground floor bathroom. There is a second guest cloak room off the kitchen.
It’s at the rear of the property where there is a real treat to be found. The recent addition of a green oak and glass extension have provided a simply stunning kitchen and entertaining space complete with large island unit and full height windows providing superb views over the large garden and farmland beyond.
There are two double bedrooms on the first floor both served by a shower room with WC and wash hand basin. The shower room is also being re-fitted as part of the scheme of works.
The cottage occupies a generous plot of approximately 0.63 acres. There is a detached double garage with an internal staircase rising to a useful attic room above. There is scope to further develop this into annexed accommodation if required, of course, subject to satisfying the relevant planning permissions. Further covered parking is provided by a double car port with additional parking on the block paved driveway. There is a detached brick and tile workshop and woodshed towards the front of the plot.
The garden has some lovely views over the surrounding farmland with a gravelled entertaining area and gazebo adjacent to the garage and second gravelled area at the lower end of the garden.
The property is presented in excellent order throughout with the planned scheme of further improvements panned to be completed in the forthcoming weeks.
