About this property

DESCRIPTION Church Cottage has been lovingly restored following a meticulous renovation by the current owners who acquired the property in 2020 having previously been in the same family for over 25 years. The house retains a great deal of character, being built in 1859 with later additions and enjoys distinctive Victorian architecture with two fine fireplaces, sash windows and original floorboards.

The accommodation is well arranged on two floors and is approached at the front into the entrance lobby which provides access to the shower room and inner hall. Off the inner hall lies the formal dining room, utility room, staircase to the first floor and access is provided into the kitchen breakfast room. The kitchen is light and airy and enjoys handmade 'shaker' style units with integrated hob and cooker appliances. The garden room links in well with the kitchen area. Steps from the kitchen also lead up into the sitting room with an attractive log burner acting as the focal point of this lovely room.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom positioned off the landing. Three of the rooms are doubles, with fitted wardrobes to two, and the fourth is a single. The bedrooms enjoy delightful views over the gardens and swimming pool.

Church Cottage is approached off Black Street into a shingled driveway with parking for a number of vehicles. The property sits directly opposite The Holy Trinity and All Saints Church, and a super view is naturally offered.

There are two outbuildings at the front of the house constructed of brick and flint elevations under a pantile roof with one being used as a store and the other as a studio. Both are excellent components to the main house and could be converted subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming. There is also a smaller brick and flint outbuilding which is used for further storage.

Much of the charm of Church Cottage remains in the side and rear gardens which have been lovingly tended and offer a great deal of privacy from neighbouring properties. The side garden hosts a kitchen garden of raised beds, two sheds and a terrace wraps around the property to the south. The swimming pool is fully enclosed by picket fencing and has been fully restored by the current owners.
