Staples Hill Cottage is a charming period property which is thought to date back to the 16th Century and has been extended over time. The cottage retains enormous character, charm and original features with a wealth of exposed timbers, beams and original doors throughout.
The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming entrance hall with an attractive oak staircase to the triple aspect drawing room with delightful inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove. The versatile dual aspect sitting room with corner woodburning stove adjoins both the light and airy dining room with French doors to the gardens and the farmhouse style kitchen with a range of fitted units.
The first floor accommodation comprises a generous dual aspect master bedroom with contemporary ensuite bathroom with separate walk-in shower together with three further bedrooms, one currently configured as a dressing room, all served by a good-sized family bathroom.
While the house has been well kept and looked after, it could benefit from updating and possible expansion subject to the usual permissions.
Staples Hill Cottage is approached via a timber gate opening onto a gravel driveway, double
barn style garage and parking for several cars.
The mature gardens are a real feature of the property and are arranged in several sections, including an area of orchard and a small paddock. The extensive well-maintained gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature and specimen trees and shrubs. A paved terrace provides the perfect location for outside entertaining and al fresco dining, or for simply enjoying the peaceful and tranquil surroundings and stunning views over the 17 acre field.
