Property Description

This delightful and characterful home has been cleverly extended and improved over the years to accommodate the conveniences of modern living, yet retaining an abundance of character. The cottage has also recently undergone completely new thatching to the garden side of the roof and the ridge, providing longevity before maintenance for a new owner.

The original front door opens into an inviting sitting/dining room, with large fireplaces at either end, and a terracotta tiled floor which features in most of the ground floor areas. The modern kitchen is fitted with a range of units and includes space for a range cooker and a breakfast table, as well as having a stable door opening to the beautiful garden. Also on the ground floor is a boot room/utility with a Belfast sink and housing the oil-fired boiler, a cloakroom facility and an inner hall with stairs to a small galleried landing leading to three good-sized bedrooms. Each bedroom has a useful period-style wash hand basin. The two double bedrooms have a double aspect, and all the bedrooms enjoy the lovely far-reaching views to the front over rolling countryside. A generous family bathroom with a shower over the bath complete this floor. The cottage offers excellent potential to enlarge further, subject to the usual consents.

The generous and well-stocked garden lies to the rear of the cottage and offers an excellent degree of privacy, comprising of an area of gravelled terrace immediately adjacent to the property and an expanse of lawn and beautifully-stocked shrub and flower beds. The gardens are enclosed by fence, wall and mature hedging. There is also a delightful bespoke children's treehouse. An additional feature of the property is the detached double garage and generous home office space, with air-conditioning and heating. There is also parking for two vehicles in front of the garage.

"Just a quick mail to thank you for the professional and dedicated manner in which Kennet Close was sold. Plus a Thank you for being involved with the purchase of Warmans close via the not so professional agent in Didcot! (Holding my self back on that subject) I would have sent a mail earlier but unfortunately, Warmans wasn't left to us in a particularly great condition. Although after clearing away the grime and much DIY the house is starting to show it'self as a lovely place to live. Thank you again."
