Built in the 1800s, the original stone cottage is a one off property that has been enhanced further with extensions, adding charm and character, so it now boasts more than 2,300 square feet over three floors.
The ground floor is characterised by four large spaces - a dual aspect dining room, a roomy breakfasting kitchen and a living room with a wood-burning stove. The final space is a superb conservatory added to one full side of the property with a parquet floor and providing a wonderful vantage point from which to view the beautiful, landscaped garden.
There are three double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room.
Continued: - The second floor room in the eaves is ideal for an older child or children comprising a large double or twin bedroom and a study,with dual staircase access to the floor below.
The property has an established tree boundary and two gated entrances that lead to a generous parking area. With lots of interest it offers a variety of seating areas to catch the sun from any angle, including a large patio that is perfect for entertaining outdoors.
The gardens contain mature trees and shrubs, planted borders and several areas of lawn attracting a range of visiting wildlife. Gardeners will be pleased with the vegetable plot, herb garden and meadow wildflower corner with hedgehog house while home cooks have an abundant supply of ingredients from the garden, fruit trees and soft fruit bushes. The stable block/outbuilding has power and is currently configured as two large stables split by a feed store which is used as a hen house. A particular advantage is that the pastureland adjoins the garden offering excellent security and easy care for precious animals. Alternatively, the out building could be put to other uses such as a workshop, office, gym or studio.
Relly Cottage offers country living at its best and a rare opportunity to develop this even further and benefit from all the advantages of a rural lifestyle.
