An appealing, double fronted cottage, set in a picturesque location, close to the heart of the village. The property provides characterful accommodation and has two double bedrooms a generous, south westerly facing garden and a useful, insulated garden studio, fitted with power, light and water.
2 Horn Lane is bright, spacious and well presented throughout with a modern kitchen and bathroom, and a generously proportioned open plan sitting / dining room, which has a lovely cosy feel.
The front door is approached over a couple of steps and opens directly into the living space, which is dual aspect and enjoys lots of natural light. Currently the room is set out with a large dining table and chairs on one side and a sitting area set around the log burner on the other. For those preferring to have two reception rooms, the room has formerly been divided with a partition wall, which could easily be reinstated. The kitchen is to the rear of the property and is fitted with a range of matching floor and wall mounted cabinets, there is an integrated fridge, a built in oven and hob with extractor over and space for a washing machine. A traditional pantry is set beneath the staircase and this displays a lovely old brick floor and a wood threshold worn by the passage of time. The rear lobby separates the kitchen and living room and this has a door out to the garden and also gives access to the bathroom, which is fitted with a modern suite comprising of a bath with a shower over, w.c and hand-basin.
On the first floor, the landing is surprisingly spacious, with a window over the staircase providing glimpses of the rear garden and natural light over the stairwell. On this level there are two bedrooms with a sizable, dual aspect master bedroom and a smaller second room, which would take a double bed.
Outside, the garden is a good size, beautifully maintained and south westerly facing, with the studio providing a work space, which is a wonderful asset given recent times. The garden is partially enclosed by a lovely old flint wall and there is a gated pedestrian access from the roadside. The garden has been thoughtfully landscaped with a path leading from the cottage to the studio at the far end; there is a terrace ideal for a dining table and chairs and a shrub border runs alongside the path. The studio at the far end is used by the current owners as a treatment room and an office. There is also a timber store, raised beds and a utility space behind the studio.
A right of access exists in favour of the neighbouring property, as is so often the case with cottages of this period.
