Property description

Possibly one of Elford's best kept secrets. At the very heart of the village, Beck Cottage sits behind an ornate set of wrought iron gates and manicured hedging, cleverly hiding over 3,000 square feet of simply stunning family accommodation and the impressive plot on which it sits. Having been lovingly extended and updated by the present owners, Beck Cottage now offers truly impressive and wonderfully flexible family accommodation over just two floors. The sprawling ground floor boasts three large reception rooms all with working fires or log burners, a bright kitchen diner, conservatory and a snug/study in addition to the more functional entrance and rear hallways, utility and downstairs shower room. All beautifully presented with a mix of parquet and oak flooring and some attractive sections of exposed brick. The first floor is equally impressive with an opulent, triple aspect, principal bedroom with lobby entrance, three further bedrooms, guest lavatory and luxury family bathroom. This truly exceptional home is further enhanced by the impressive gardens on all sides of the property offering the perfect blend of neat lawns and hedging, established trees and shrubs and a selection of wonderfully private patio and seating areas. Further benefits include gravel driveway parking for a number of vehicles and a double garage with games room/storage room above.

Viewing really is essential to understand the extent and presentation of the property itself and the delightful plot on which it sits.
