Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Property
Grade II Listed this charming village cottage has been a part of the street scene of Shillingstone since the 1600s and has seen many changes to village life. It has been extended in the intervening years and undoubtedly the bathroom and downstairs cloakroom were not part of the original build. Set in a substantial plot the garden has been lovingly tended by various plantsmen and women over the years. The cottage itself is timber framed and the brickwork to the front elevation is Flemish bond. The rear elevation on the other hand is rendered with exposed beamwork. The kitchen extension to the side of the cottage is boarded and the whole property is thatched. Internally the cottage has a wealth of period features including Inglenook fireplaces, plank and muntin partitions and extensive exposed beam work. Thought to have been built as a single dwelling it may originally have been open to the roof and contained a central hearth although it now benefits from gas fired central heating and a woodburning stove has been set within the impressive Inglenook fireplace in the Sitting Room.

Storm Porch, Lobby and Dining Room with open fireplace (not used), Sitting Room Dual Aspect with inglenook fireplace having inset stove, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Cloakroom, Extensive First Floor Landing with Study Area, 3 Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. Garage, Parking Space and Gardens and Grounds of approximately 0.33 acres.
