About this home
Small House is a charming three bedroom detached character property in an enviable location, within a minute’s walk to the High Street but being set back from Small Lane by a front garden and off road parking space.
The pretty cottage is presented in wonderful condition throughout with the superb bespoke kitchen right at its heart. Steps rise from the parking area to the front garden and path leading to the front door, which in turn opens into the central hallway.
There are two reception rooms, the intimate sitting room at the front and a larger dining area or family room to the rear of the kitchen, with access out to the private courtyard garden through bi-fold doors.
The kitchen really is the star of the show, constructed from solid wood by Richard Matthews, topped with a pale marble work surface and matching breakfast bar. The twin oven AGA (mains gas) exudes warmth and it totally fitting for such a sweet character property.
The feeling of quality extends to the dining area at the rear of the cottage with cleverly designed bench seat storage and hidden integrated washer drier. The kitchen and dining area are unified by both by the bespoke units and the quarry tiles that run throughout.
The dining area has a contemporary log burning stove, beyond which is a useful area serving as a boot room with bi-fold doors out into the rear courtyard garden.
The wonderful space is perfect for everyday family life but really comes into its own when entertaining.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, two double bedrooms at the front of almost identical proportion and a third at the rear overlooking the courtyard garden. All bedrooms are served by a very smart and recently refitted shower room with double shower enclosure, wash hand basin and WC.
Externally there is a lawned garden to the front, effectively providing privacy to the cottage. At the rear through the French doors is a small courtyard walled garden and a larger courtyard through the bi-fold doors, along with two useful brick and tile outbuildings. Both courtyards are hard landscaped for ease of maintenance.
The High Street of Eccleshall has seemingly bucked the national trend and supports a variety of independent retailers, coffee shops, bars, bakery and award winning butchers. The county town of Stafford is a short distance away with a mainline station providing regular intercity links to London, Birmingham and Manchester. The M6 at either junction 14 to the south or 15 to the north is also within easy reach.
