Positioned in a tucked away corner of the grounds of a large country house, The Cottage should be viewed to truly appreciate the beautiful location and surrounding countryside.
Located a short distance from the village of Bentley, the cottage is accessed via its own private driveway. The entrance lobby opens into the main living space of the property. The entire property is particularly light and airy, the living/dining room especially so, with French doors accessing the large patio area. For the chilly winter months there is a vast fireplace for a warming log fire.
The kitchen area is fitted with ample storage and worktops, plus a full range of appliances. These include; electric oven with ceramic hob, Smeg fridge/freezer, separate oven/microwave combination, dishwasher and washer/dryer. There are also doors leading out to the front of cottage and to the rear garden. This entire area has an attractive oak floor.
Off the living room area there is an inner hallway with stairs to the first floor. The inner hallway has a large storage cupboard and door to a large double bedroom with double wardrobe. This is a particularly pretty double aspect galleried room with French doors to the garden. Across the hallway is a shower room with large shower enclosure, bidet, handbasin and WC.
On the first floor the minstrel gallery has space for twin beds and there is also a step down to a study area. Off the gallery is another luxury bathroom with bath bidet, hand basin, WC and linen cupboard.
Outside, the gardens surround the cottage. There is a patio adjacent to the cottage and some areas of low wall and step up to the lawn. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn bordered by mature trees and hedges. The separate driveway leads up to the rear of the cottage where there is ample parking for a number of cars.
The cottage accommodation lends itself to a variety of lifestyle uses. It would make a great living/working space and the landlord is flexible should a tenant wish to work professionally from home. However, given the layout of the accommodation, the cottage would not be suitable for children.
For those looking to base themselves in a peaceful rural location which is near to main commute routes, this property would be ideal. Within a short distance of Bentley station (Waterloo 1 hr) and A31.
It should be noted: The cottage is set within the grounds of the owner`s property and while there is some screening, both properties are within a distant view of each other. Approaching the driveway to the cottage there is a restricted headroom and width limited bridge, so access is restricted to a smaller vehicles for general access and deliveries.
