The country is calling and the chance to escape into that gentle green embrace.
For some the calm of the country is a lure, the chance to escape into that gentle green embrace can be too good a thing to miss.
The current owners followed that call, to live life in a place where a different rhythm beats, one that moves with the seasons. They followed in the footsteps of the previous owners who lived here, we're told, for around forty years, raising their family in this glorious setting near delightful Whitchurch.
If, as you drive to the property, you haven't already fallen in love with the views then, as you approach the cottage, the striking profile it presents is bound to tug at your heart strings.
As you step inside, the first thing you will notice is the space it provides to live life in, whether you are looking to enjoy formal dining with friends or throw outside summer barbecues.
This is a home that has been extended, by the previous family as the numbers grew. What drew our clients here was the living space particularly. The main sitting room with its firplace and stove, one that provides central heating, is the centre piece for the indoors and space is plentiful, everyone can find their own area. It flows from the dining room and, as you throw open the French doors to the patio, that sense of ease, a feeling of simple enjoyment washes over you.
This is a home that will fill your life with pleasant memories in years to come, from hot chocolate winter nights snuggled up to the fireplace to the sights and sounds of spring and summer blooming, times when you will be planning to throw open those doors let the sun shine in and enjoy a patio and garden that will bring hours of adventure and tranquility to do whatever your mood desires.
Wander around downstairs past the office, it's a room that can have many uses, nearby you'll discover a downstairs shower and toilet, will it be the kids getting rinsed off or the dog from a muddy playtime in winter? Step through into the kitchen which has a attached utility room. it's a great place to prepare meals, looking out over the garden it proves to be an ultra practical room.
Upstairs has three double bedrooms and a forth smaller room, there's a family bathroom giving, combined with that shower room downstairs, flexibility for family or for when friends stay over.
