Set within an established and secluded half acre plot is Thatchover Cottage, an exquisite detached country home benefitting from beautifully presented interiors, five good sized bedrooms and a secluded setting close to the heart of this prestigious village. Having been sympathetically extended and remodelled throughout, this beautifully presented family home is reluctantly being placed on the market due to a work related relocation. This Grade II Listed cottage originally dates back to the 1600s and offers elegant character features throughout including exposed beams and leaded windows, alongside sympathetically modernised interiors including am impressive open plan living and dining kitchen. The versatile living accommodation perfectly lends itself to family life, a study providing space to work from home and a boot room and separate laundry offering functionality as well as reception rooms independent from the open plan living space. The roof to the original cottage was rethatched in 2020 with added fire-retardant protection, and the cottage is serviced by mains gas central heating and under floor heating to the extension.

The reception hall to this individual home leads off into two beautiful reception rooms, both having feature fireplaces and a wealth of exposed beams. Also from the hallway is a useful boot room and a cloakroom, with a laundry and study accessed from the kitchen area. The contemporary living and dining kitchen is connected to the original cottage via a glazed hallway and houses a formal dining area, family room with dual aspect bifold doors and a quality refitted kitchen, all overlooking the mature gardens. To the ground floor is a stunning master suite having private use of an en suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe, and within the original cottage are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, the established wrap around plot extends to 0.55 acre and enjoys privacy to all sides, with electric gates opening to a generous parking area to the front.
