Enjoying a prime position on an established half acre plot is Thatchover Cottage, an exquisite detached country home benefitting from elegantly presented interiors, five bedrooms and a secluded setting close to the heart of this prestigious village. Having been sympathetically extended and remodelled over time, the Grade II Listed Thatchover Cottage originally dates back to the 1600s and offers beautifully retained character features throughout including exposed beams and leaded windows. Versatile living accommodation lends itself to modern family life, a study providing space to work from home and a boot room and separate laundry offering functionality alongside the impressive and recently refitted family dining and living kitchen. In 2020, the roof to the original cottage was rethatched with added fire-retardant protection, and the cottage is serviced by mains gas central heating throughout and under floor heating to the kitchen, study and master suite.
The reception hall to this individual home leads off into two generous 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 overlooks views across the mature gardens, housing a formal dining area, family room with dual aspect bifold doors and a quality refitted kitchen. 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 modern family bathroom. Outside, the established wrap around plot extends to 0.55 acre and enjoys privacy to all sides, with gated access opening to a generous parking area at the front.
