Completed and occupied by the present owners, in 2017, Neil’s Cottage sits in a beautiful half acre plot located at the end of a no-through lane of mainly period property. Whilst incorporating cutting edge construction and technology, its design works in harmony with its traditional village surroundings and is a truly outstanding home of the highest quality.
The architects answered a demanding brief with a magnificent layout which affords open plan living, so sought today, but also privacy when required. With some of the latest in building technology, including application driven appliances and lighting, a ground source heat pump, under-floor heating throughout and high level insulation, the house is extremely energy efficient.
On entering the generous hall with bespoke oak and glass staircase, a sense of light and space is immediately apparent. From the hall you are presented with a substantial formal living room with raised and inset contemporary log burner which in turn, provides access to the rear section of the house featuring a breath taking vaulted kitchen/dining/family room which undoubtedly is the focal point of the home, offering masses of space both for everyday living and entertaining. This outstanding room includes two sets of bi-fold doors leading to both and private courtyard terrace and the main garden to the rear. A further wing provides access to a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room and a generous study overlooking the rear garden. In addition, a beautiful oak and glass spiral staircase rises to reveal a spacious mezzanine level sitting room with views over the kitchen and rear gardens and a guest bedroom suite including a bathroom with separate shower.
The master bedroom is a particular feature of Neil’s Cottage being set out in three sections totalling nearly 40’ in length. The stunning main bedroom area is nearly 20’ square and vaulted creating a beautiful room with adjoining dressing room and open plan en-suite bathroom. This outstanding suite also includes a second shower room and extensive built-in storage. Bedroom three is located across the hall and also has the benefit of an en-suite shower room.
The main garden to the rear is south/easterly-facing and gets virtually all day sun. It is mainly laid to lawn with a beautiful mature pine tree just beyond an expansive stone terrace. The garden has been landscaped for low maintenance and to complement the design of the house and features a comprehensive lighting scheme. The entire half acre plot is set in mature grounds and bound by natural screening and post and rail fence work. To the front aspect there is also ample parking on the forecourt leading to two garages set on either side of the property.
