Goodwill Cottage forms a stunning detached Period property within just yards of the High Street of this popular and picturesque Village.
The property is approached via a pedestrian walkway with oak front door to a little entrance hall with window to front, door and stairs to Lower Floor, door to the sitting room, which forms a light and airy room with a double aspect to front and rear and French doors to rear garden. A large brick fireplace with stone hearth, wood-burner and cupboard to side. Timbered ceiling, central Oak upright and banistered staircase rising to the first floor.
The kitchen is a stunning hand-crafted, bespoke kitchen, with a range of cupboards and drawers with fitted Granite worktops. The cleverly designed cupboards include corner cupboards with sliding shelves and in a former bread oven, a fitted cupboard reveals sliding shelves for ease of storage. The Granite worktops have been painstakingly cut round the wall timbers to show the quality of workmanship. Inset into the work surface is a twin ceramic 'Butler' sink with a mixer tap. Integrated appliances include a 3 Oven gas fired Aga, Dishwasher and Fridge and there is also a twin oven and hob electric Aga. Windows to front and side, tiled splash backs and oak flooring.
There is an opening to vaulted breakfast room with timbered ceiling, oak flooring and exposed Sandstone blocks, windows to rear and side and stable door to the enclosed Courtyard Garden. A wooden door from the kitchen leads to the rear lobby with wooden door to front, window to side and door to a cloakroom with low level W.C., wash hand basin and window to side.
Stairs lead down from the entrance hall to the lower ground floor reception room that could easily form a formal dining room, family/TV/play room, games room, gym or even an additional bedroom if required. There is even scope for the room to be divided into two separate rooms. The room benefits from being tanked and waterproofed with a good ceiling height, two windows to rear, wall lights, timbered ceiling and large storage cupboards to one wall.
The first floor landing has a double aspect to front and rear offering an attractive outlook to the front towards the Church. Timbered ceiling, timbered walls and wood thumb latch doors.
The master bedroom has a window to front, brick former fireplace, oak upright and timbered ceiling and double doors to fitted wardrobes with cupboards above and a further newly built-in cupboard, glazed door to a newly installed en-suite shower room, enjoying a window to rear, shower, wide basin and WC, towel rail, and vinyl flooring.
Off the landing is also the fourth bedroom/study, with window to rear overlooking The Mews behind. Exposed brick panel, wooden doors to cupboard housing the Boiler and pressurised water cylinder. Further shelved cupboard.
The family bathroom is a sumptuous room comprising a white suite with ‘Perrin and Rowe’ fittings, comprising a large corner shower, modern stand-alone bath with side taps, W.C. and ceramic, painted basin set atop an old weaving desk, part panelled walls and shuttered window to side.
Stairs lead from the first floor landing to the galleried and vaulted second floor landing with oak banisters, oak beams and doors to the vaulted second bedroom, with timbers in the vaulted ceiling and walls, Velux style windows to front and rear and some limited head height within the eaves. The third bedroom is on the opposite side of the landing, with some limited head height in the eaves with eaves storage cupboards and a window to side.
Outside, there is vehicular access along Royal Oak Mews (from the High Street) which leads to the detached double garage, with power and light, brick flooring, electric up and over door, stairs to a storeroom above, pedestrian door to side and further door to an adjacent utility room, with cupboards, sink, window and space for washing machine and tumble dryer.
The west facing garden forms a charming cottage style garden, with flower bed borders, central lawn and brick pathway to the French doors to the sitting room, plus a quiet seating area to one corner.
To the far side is a brick and paved, wall-enclosed patio with a gate to North Street and doors to both the breakfast room and side lobby, and a view toward the Church steeple.
Goodwill Cottage is located in the centre of the village, just off the High Street down a Private, no-through lane. Footpaths are very close by and make the most of the location to access the nearby fields and woodland.
