Fold Cottage is an ingenious conversion of a single storey barn providing surprisingly spacious and versatile accommodation presented to an excellent standard. During its current ownership the property has been comprehensively renovated and enlarged to offer a very appealing layout whereby all principal rooms benefit a delightful, rural outlook with maximum natural light.
The property enjoys a delightful, rural location and occupies a superb plot of approximately 1.2 acres made up of beautifully landscaped gardens with grass paddock beyond.
The accommodation extends to approximately 1,850ft2 and briefly comprises: oak-framed porch, open-plan kitchen/day room, utility room, guest cloakroom, dining room, living room, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a large house bathroom. The open-plan kitchen is the hub of the home featuring an attractive range of units and this room, along with the living room, includes a wood burning stove.
The current owners have made significant improvements to the property’s energy efficiency, re-laying some of the floors, adding insulation, renewing double-glazed windows and installing an air-source central heating system and PV solar panels.
Outside, a set of timber gates open onto a block-paved driveway, giving ample room to park and leading to a large single garage with space alongside for a trailer or similar.
The gardens enjoy an enviable south-westerly aspect and excellent privacy and have been painstakingly landscaped. They include a sizeable stone paved terrace, extensive lawned areas, rose beds, well-stocked shrub borders and soft fruit beds. Within the garden there is a range of timber outbuildings providing storage and workshop space. The paddock immediately adjoins the garden and would be ideal for anyone with equestrian or smallholding interests. As well as gated access directly from the garden there is an additional gate from the lane. Within the paddock there are a number of trees including lime, beech, maple, damson, apple and plum.
