Here, a stable door opens to a light and airy front aspect living room with wooden flooring, a log burning stove in an oak-beamed, slate-floored, hearth and double-glazed wooden door and windows. A modern fully fitted kitchen includes a full-size dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer, pyrolytic oven, induction hob and ample storage. A hallway then leads both to the gardens and to a modern downstairs bathroom with bath, electric shower, oak cabinetry, and underfloor heating. On the second floor, there is a comfortable, front-facing, double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe, and views over the pretty front gardens. A single bedroom is currently used as a studio office, with additional storage and views to the rear gardens. A further flight up from the landing is the third, double, bedroom with extensive storage under the eaves and views from a Velux window over Folly Hill and the Berkshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
To the rear, through a gate and across a small lawned area is a hidden garden. Here, a stone pathway between flower beds leads to a beautiful summerhouse surrounded by shrubs and trees - a haven for the wildlife that visits its small decking area. Perfect for lazy summer evening barbecues or as a tranquil space for quiet reading.
This exceptional cottage has a further shed located behind the summer house and two brick outbuildings, one currently used as a workshop and the other as a wood store.
To the front of the house is a small lawned front garden, and hidden behind the shrubs next to the river, is a wooden bike shed - completing a home of exceptional character in a village that was runner-up in Chanel Fours village of the Year.
