Built in 1840 and forming three cottages for the Littleton Hall estate, this charming cottage conversion offers spacious and versatile accommodation whilst retaining a wealth of character features throughout. We are sure you will be impressed when you view whether it is the high ceilings, cast iron fireplaces, the Oak staircase leading to an impressive galleried landing, pine flooring or the private, landscaped gardens.
Approached through a pair of tall timber gates, the landscaped, south facing garden has been laid to lawn featuring an attractive ornamental pond and enclosed by well stocked borders with tall fencing and mature hedging, adding to the privacy. A paved patio runs the width of the property and leads to the front porch.
From the porch you enter the vestibule with the main reception hall ahead of you, the garden room to your right and cloakroom w/c to your left. Off the reception hall is the lounge, dining room and rear hall leading to a study and utility room. The generous lounge enjoys attractive garden views. The dining room is open plan to the kitchen and garden room, creating the perfect setting for those friends and family gatherings. The kitchen has been finished with shaker style units and a Corian work surface over. From the kitchen there is also access to the double garage and rear garden. The garden room is an excellent addition to this fine home, enjoying views over the landscaped garden all year round.
Beyond the reception hall, is a rear hallway, finished with parquet flooring and leading to the study and utility room. The study enjoys views over the rear garden and enjoys an abundance of natural light.
The impressive galleried landing leads to two inner landings, the rightmost having plenty of space for a library and a seating area with timber doors to the master bedroom, a further bedroom and a large shower room. The generous, dual aspect master bedroom enjoys attractive, elevated garden and countryside views.

On your left, bedrooms two and four enjoy stunning views over the landscaped garden and open countryside beyond and to your right you will find bedrooms three and five - each enjoying views over the private, walled rear garden and the family bathroom.
The private, walled rear garden is accessed from the double garage and is quite the sun trap. Here you will also find a useful brick built store room and greenhouse.
