Drayton Cottage, nestling in a quiet country lane, is a delightful restored and extended Edwardian house having the benefit of countryside on the doorstep but is only 1.5 miles and 2 miles away from the amenities in Emmer Green and Sonning Common respectively. The property is also within the catchment area for several good primary and secondary schools including the outstanding Kidmore End Primary School. This four bedroomed home has undergone considerable improvement by the present owners yet retains much of its original character appeal. The living space includes five reception rooms with a particular feature being the magnificent dining/sitting room with feature vaulted ceiling and furthermore super countryside views can be enjoyed from most rooms. Outside, the frontage affords parking for several vehicles whilst the rear garden is beautifully tended and enjoys a high degree of privacy. Presented in excellent decorative order throughout, an early viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate this super home. No Chain.

GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION:
An entrance porch with quarry tiling leads through an oak beamed arch into the sitting room with living room beyond. The entire floor area is laid to solid oak and the room is dual aspect with French doors leading to the garden. The cosy living room enjoys a feature open fireplace with a wood burning stove sitting on a herringbone hearth. Twin doors lead to a magnificent dining/family room being triple aspect, with a striking chandelier and a high vaulted and beamed ceiling. This super room benefits from tri-folding doors to the garden and woodblock flooring. From the sitting room two separate doors gives access to the kitchen/breakfast room which is laid out to meet the needs of any family, with a centre island, and a range of accessible shaker style units. This room is a particular feature of the property, with stone flooring, exposed oak beams, granite work surfaces, hand painted tiles and a fridge and range by Rangemaster. Doors lead to the utility room and cloakroom, and the dual aspect family room with sliding patio doors to the garden. Adding further to the living space, there is a study at the front of the property which benefits from woodblock flooring and a fireplace with decorative antique copper stove, and enjoys super views over the cornfields.
