Oak Cottage is a very characterful and beautifully presented Grade II listed timber frame thatched cottage located next door to a quiet country pub undergoing refurbishment, which is planning to reopen as soon as the current restrictions are lifted.
It has origins dating back to somewhere between 1650-1750 and was substantially renovated and extended in 2001 to offer well-proportioned accommodation. In 2001 it was re-thatched and in 2020 it was re-dressed and re-ridged.
The drawing room has an inglenook fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove and a door to the dining room with a further fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove. The study has built in office furniture and the sitting room has a feature brick raised hearth, shelving and cupboards, a glass door and separate double doors both opening to the rear terrace.
The kitchen/breakfast room forms part of a later extension, with a stable door to the rear terrace. Over the handmade cupboards are oak worktops and a range of appliances. There is space for a dishwasher and a freestanding fridge freezer. There is also a cloakroom and utility room with space for a washer dryer and an additional fridge freezer.
The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes, a re-fitted shower room and fitted cupboards. The third bedroom has a re-fitted en suite and fitted cupboards. A back staircase leads to the guest double bedroom, with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room.
There is parking for several cars adjacent to the timber frame garage and store, which includes two carports, an enclosed garage/workshop and a garden store. There are an array of trees, and at the front of the house is a lawn, mature borders and a feature wishing well. On the western side of the house is a brick terrace with a path leading to the rear garden, with a further paved terrace, an ornamental brick pond and a pergola over a raised decked terrace.
