1 Mead Cottage
Mead Cottage is a charming attached house set on a quiet lane within the village of Tutts Clump. The house has been completely redeveloped over the last 9 years to combine original character with practical living. The sitting room has an open fireplace to one side and leads through into a newly built garden room/playroom with doors out onto the newly created terrace/entertaining area
and garden with an elevated view over the entire plot and woodland beyond. The kitchen which has been fitted with handmade units flows into the dining hall and sitting room beyond, making it an ideal entertaining space as well as practical for everyday living. To the first floor, there is a large master bedroom which enjoys fantastic views over the gardens, as well as three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outside, the gravel driveway has been reconfigured and extended to create parking for three cars and leads to a garage at the rear of the property and a newly created office which has had heating installed as well as additional insulation. The rear garden has been skilfully landscaped to create flat tiers and is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and elegant pathways interspersed with steps down to different levels. A new terrace area has been built directly off the garden room which provides a lovely seating area with views down to the bottom of the garden and woodland beyond, the boundary providing a lovely outlook and a good degree of seclusion.
N.B. The property benefits from a vehicular right of way from the bottom of the garden leading onto Rotten Row Hill.
