Coombeside Cottage
Coombeside Cottage is a beautifully presented
detached property, originally two cottages dating
back to the late 18th century which has been
substantially updated and improved over the
past few years by the current owners to create
a well-proportioned family home which is full of
character and ideal for modern family life with
the added benefit of a separate outbuilding which
is currently used both as a utility and for storage.
These improvements include the replacement of
the family bathroom, new flooring, complete redecoration throughout whilst the gardens have
been re-landscaped and the terrace has been
re-pointed. Of particular note is the wonderful kitchen/ breakfast room which has attractive shaker-style units and overlooks the south westerly rear gardens and has access directly onto the newly laid terrace. The sitting room is situated at the front of the house and has beautiful old beams, wooden casement windows with Gothick tops to all openings and a wood burning stove. There is also a dining room with doors leading out onto the terrace and a snug.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms all with
built in wardrobes and a large family bathroom.
Outside, a largely lawned walled garden lies to the rear of the property and is south westerly facing with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. A gravel pathway leads to a brick and timber garden store and there is a secluded, paved sun terrace to the rear accessed
from both the kitchen and sitting room. Bordering the terrace is a further brick outbuilding with slate roof which has light and power, currently used as a utility room and store. To the side of the house there is a separate large shed with power.
