A rather charming and exceptionally spacious 'Mews-style' cottage, tucked away yet in the middle of the village, being a former stable/coach house for the former George Inn, with a lovely outlook over the Church yard and currently offering one/two bedrooms, bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, with a covered courtyard. Ideal for a quiet downsize, 'Pied a Terre', or for Air B&B/holiday let purposes. NO CHAIN. EPC Rating E.
Stable Cottage is a beautiful Period cottage, tucked away behind the old George Inn (now a house) and one of a few cottages that are accessed via a gated and paved courtyard in the centre of the village. Being behind the closed gates, the property is incredibly safe and private, ideal for a lock-up-and-leave 'Pied a Terre'.
The property is also spacious enough to provide for those in need of a central property, and anyone looking for an ideal Air B&B investment. There is scope to alter the internal layout, if one so wished, or simply redecorate the layout as is.
One enters via a private front door, to the main open-plan ground floor living space, with a wonderful metal and oak circular staircase leading up to the first floor, and gently dividing the room.
To one end is the kitchen, forming a range of beech effect cupboards and drawers with grey worktops and integrated appliances, such as the electric oven and four ring hob and extractor above, slimline dishwasher, sink with drainer and space for further appliances, tiled splash back, fitted breakfast bar, and window to front and high level windows to rear.
By the door, louvered doors leads to various cupboards for coats, shoes and household items. The gas boiler is located to one side. The open plan sitting/dining room has two high level windows to rear.
The first floor opens into a large additional dual aspect sitting room, with French doors and a Juliet balcony overlooking the Church yard to the rear, and three window to front, plus an open fireplace with a tiled surround and cast-iron mantle and wooden flooring. It is considered that this space could easily form further bedrooms, subject to any necessary consents, if required.
A door leads into the bathroom, complete with a panelled bath and mixer tap, pedestal wash hand basin, WC and radiator with towel rail, wooden flooring, and part tiled walls.
The bedroom is adjacent, again with a dual aspect with windows to front and rear.
Outside, the courtyard used to be used for parking, but is now used as a general space, with little cottage-style gardens for the properties that have access to it. The old garage/open stable block is still open to the front, with a vaulted roof space, with allocated areas for the houses to store items, or use as they see fit. The area allocated to Stable Cottage is immediately by the front door.
The property occupies a convenient position in the centre of the village, just yards from the Church and local shops.
Rotherfield enjoys a good range of amenities including the very popular Courtyard Cafe, a Village Shop with local Post Office, Chemist, Doctors' Surgery, renowned St Denys' Church, two Public Houses and a highly regarded Primary School. Surrounded by beautiful open farmland and woodland, including the Millennium Green, Rotherfield offers plenty of green space.
