Under Offer
This property is a stunning Grade II listed cottage, which in parts dates back to the 1640s, skillfully developed in 2006 to a very high specification which in turn makes the property inexpensive to insure and run. The cottage is surrounded by stunning views over a picturesque pond with geese and ducks.

Weir Cottage is a characterful three bedroom detached home, which retains many of the period features including wooden beams and an Inglenook fireplace, complete with a bread oven.

A path leads you through the landscaped front garden to the property. Upon entering you are greeted by the warm and welcoming large reception hall which boasts an abundance of character with its wooden beams and terracotta floors. On your left hand side is the useful cloakroom which is ideal for leaving your muddy wellie boots after a walk around the fields and bridleways. The dining area has a wonderful feature fireplace with a wood burning stove and exposed wooden beams.

This area makes the ideal space for entertaining family friends, hosting dinner parties or simply enjoying a dinner date for two. The kitchen/ breakfast room is the heart of this quirky home with its burr oak wood cupboards, granite work surfaces, Inglenook fireplace with a bread oven and a Britannia stove. Along with the exposed wooden beams, the window seat and terracotta flooring create the perfect cottage kitchen.

The dual aspect sitting room is flooded with natural light and looks out onto the pond and is ideal for cosying up in the winter evenings making the most of the wood burning stove. The ground floor accommodation is completely under floor heated.

The oak staircase leads you to a split level landing. To the left of this split staircase is the modern family bathroom with a roll-top bath and an additional shower. The large landing takes you into the characteristic bedroom three with views and lots of exposed beams. There is a further double bedroom on this side of the house, again with exposed beams.
The last bedroom is currently being used as the vendor's art studio and also has an en-suite shower room, along with a fitted feature oak wardrobe which completes the first floor accommodation.

The private front garden has been tastefully designed with two seating areas to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The property benefits from having ample parking to the front and is tucked away down Weir Lane. There is also a side access and storage for wood as well as a garden shed.
