Agents Comments

“There are so few beautiful period cottages in stunning rural setting with outstanding far reaching views across open countryside. Chauffeurs Cottage is one of the loveliest examples.”

Introduction

Chauffeurs Cottage has been beautifully restored by our clients preserving its original integrity including feature fireplaces, authentic slat and latch doors, picture rails and it's aesthetically pleasing tile hung frontage. Whilst cosy as a three bedroom cottage this rare gem offers ample family living space with a contemporary open plan kitchen living room and offers much potential to extend if desired. The gardens are a delight offering large lawns with extensive far reaching views, a productive growing area and a traditional cottage front garden with generous vehicular parking.

Landford Wood is a tranquil hamlet of attractive and individual homes offering a rural aspect yet is still within easy reach of the extensive amenities available in the neighbouring village of Landford and is in catchment for excellent local schooling.

Description

A pretty porch with the original front door opens into the vestibule and traditional hardwood flooring flows through to the dining area of the lovely open plan kitchen dining room. The feature cast iron fireplace with tiled hearth is one of the many lovely original fireplaces within the cottage. The original doors and picture rails are also reminders of the home's heritage. The solid wood painted shaker style kitchen provides ample storage space and there are generous French Oak worktops. A central island with granite worktop offers more storage and an informal dining venue. The kitchen has been handcrafted and includes dresser units, including plate racks and glass cabinets with a cooking area housing a Belling traditional range with halogen hob and concealed extractor. An authentic Butler sink, water softener, understairs cupboard and tiled flooring complete the specification. A door leads to the lobby with a large walk in pantry door and a downstairs cloakroom with high level WC. A door provides rear garden access. The sitting room is gorgeous, centred around a feature brick fireplace with slate surround, stone hearth and inset woodburning stove.

From the first floor the views are stunning from every aspect with far reaching farmland vistas. The two principal bedrooms are of excellent proportions with feature original fireplaces and a walk in wardrobe to the master. Bedroom three is also a double and all bedrooms are served by the luxurious family bathroom comprising a bath with shower room, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC with contrasting tiling.
