Delightful period cottage with a beautiful rear garden and gated parking for a couple of cars.
Quinton Cottage is a lovely three bedroom cottage with parts thought to date back to the 17th century. In recent years a contemporary twist has been added by way of a single story extension creating a dining room the leads into a sitting room / bedroom 3. Within the modern extension is a useful ground floor shower room. A solid ledged timber door takes you through to the original cottage where you will find a stunning reception room and kitchen which has been carefully designed around vertical beams. The kitchen units are of a shaker style, further complimenting the heritage of this property along with an oak worksurface. The living room is a lovely space to relax especially in the winter with the log burner cracking away. The exposed bricks are a real feature in the living room and the cast iron bread oven gives you a glimpse into the history of the property. A bay window, likely to be a later additional, allows for plenty of light to fill the room.
There is a small lobby connecting the front door to the ground floor and it is here where you lead up to the first floor accommodation. On this level you will find a fabulous principal bedroom that offers a tranquil room to unwind. This bedroom has an exposed brick fireplace along with a run of wardrobes for clothes storage. Bedroom 2 is a sweet room with rear facing view and there is a well designed shower room opposite.
A real feature to this property is a gorgeous garden where many hours have been spent creating a lovely setting to relax and entertain with friends. You will find several little seating areas as you wander along the garden. An inviting path curves its way along the garden passing a variety of planting and flora, proceeding underneath a pergola and eventually finishes at the rear of the garden where you will find a sociable seating area in front of a summer house. In addition to the garden, there is a gated parking area allowing for off street parking for at least two cars and can be accessed from Maypole Green Road.
