Chamberlain Phillips are delighted to introduce this deceptively spacious 18th Century quintessential "Chocolate Box" cottage that offers a wealth of charm and character, set in a semi-rural location surrounded by open farmland.
Formerly "Reedlands Farmhouse" part of the original farm, "Reedlands Cottage" is now a private residence that stands in a plot of 2.3 acres (stms), believed to have been re-build in 1746 denoted by the oval plaque displayed on the front elevation.
The property has been maintained to a high standard, offering spacious and versatile accommodation for the whole family and ideal for those wishing to adopt a small holding. The property also boasts ultra-high-speed internet currently achieving 900mb
Reedlands Cottage is approached from Holland Road via a five bar gate and shingle driveway offering parking for at least three vehicles, to the side leading to wood store, recycling store, garage, workshop and side access to rear garden and side entrance door to the former "creamery" currently used as an office.
On entering the property from the main front door, you will be greeted by a wealth of character including exposed brick chimney breast, exposed beamwork and access to one side to the dual aspect sitting room with Inglenook fireplace housing multi-fuel burner, brick hearth and oak floor.
To the other side of the main entrance, you will find the dual aspect dining room, with exposed beamwork, Inglenook fireplace housing multi-fuel burner, brick hearth, stairs leading to first floor, oak floor, doors to rear conservatory with windows to side and rear aspects, polycarbonate roof and patio doors opening to the south-facing rear garden, opening to the games room/snug which is partially partitioned by exposed beams with windows to the side aspect, oak floor and door leading to Kitchen.
The Kitchen is dual aspect with a selection of solid wood wall and base units with solid oak work surfaces, inset range cooker, cupboard housing plumbing and space for dishwasher, tiled floor with underfloor heating, door to Inner hall which leads to the family bathroom which is fully tiled in "travertine" with roll top freestanding bath, shower cubicle, tiled floor, separate cloakroom and door leading to large airing cupboard.
The utility room has a window to the side, plumbing/space for a washing machine, space for fridge/freezer, and a tumble dryer, tiled floor and door to the former "Creamery" currently used as a home office.
The home office has a window to the front aspect and a side door opening to the courtyard and driveway giving ideal private access for anyone running a business from home, tiled floor with underfloor heating.
The landing offers access to all bedrooms which are all spacious and double in size, the front bedroom has the added benefit of an en-suite cloakroom which could easily be portioned giving a separate cloakroom useable by all bedrooms or extended to include shower room facilities servicing the first floor bedrooms.
There is an additional staircase leading to the top floor attic room which has two separate rooms running the entire length of the property, one with window to rear aspect, stripped wooden floor and could suit additional accommodation.
Reedlands Cottage enjoys a substantial frontage extending to around 160 ft, set in grounds of 2.3 acres (stms) and enjoys expansive formal lawned gardens to the front, side and rear of the house, numerous covered patio areas, flower beds, shrubs, trees and hedgerows. There is a large glass greenhouse, raised vegetable beds, garden shed and covered terraces with power and light connected.
