Buckland Monachorum

In the heart of this sought after conservation village

225,000 Freehold

 A pretty bay-fronted Georgian terraced cottage, presented with care and an eye for detail, which deceptively unfolds its depth of space and charm right through to the end of its enchanting 130’ westerly aspect garden.


The interior space is well lit and characterful, its features typify the attention to detail the property has on display. The sitting room boasts an ornate cast-iron working fireplace with slate hearth and oak flooring flows through into the dining area which has the original range cooker set into a traditional stone fireplace and a glass-fronted and shelved alcove cupboard.


Off the dining area is a lobby – cleverly lit via a sun tunnel – with airing cupboard leading into to an exceptional bathroom. Presented to a high standard in keeping with the properties era it boasts ornate and thoughtful detailing, in particular, the combined towel rail-radiator and the modern comfort of under floor heating.


Also leading off the dining area is the kitchen, which is classic in its style and led by form following function with a range of pine units and worktops and spaces for all appliances.


There are two double bedrooms, both are full width, with the master located at the front of the property, with a wide and deep alcove fitted with wardrobe furniture. Bedroom two enjoys a pleasant outlook across the garden. Clever access to a converted loft den has been created which has two velux windows front and rear and can work as a great office space.


At the rear of the property across a shared service lane is a 30’ timber frame outbuilding providing a garage and garden studio that has patio doors leading to a decked terrace and the delightful level 130 foot enclosed garden which meanders past an apple tree and soft fruit beds ending up at the original piggery.
