Nestled in the countryside in approximately 4.8 acres, sits this delightful cottage and studio.
The beautiful rural setting is surrounded by open countryside and boasts panoramic views in every direction. Windmill Cottage was creatively designed and built in 1994, using many of the original farmhouse bricks but has recently been upgraded by the current owners, including new UPVC windows and composite doors.
Internally the accommodation is light and bright and interesting in design, with many characterful features. To the ground floor, the entrance porch provides access into the utility area and cloakroom which then lead to the open plan kitchen/diner/family room, which features an oil-fired Aga and enjoys stunning views of the surrounding gardens and paddocks. There is also a cosy snug with electric stove, sophisticated sitting room and a beautiful garden room that floods with natural light and features an original Mill stone windowsill and patio doors to the garden.
To the first floor there are two good size double bedrooms, both benefiting from fabulous views and an ample third bedroom with a built-in walk-in wardrobe. The family bathroom has been upgraded with a new four-piece white suite including a tiled shower enclosure and panelled bath.
Outside there is a very special circular studio what was in fact the ground floor of the original windmill which dates to 1814. This unique building, steeped in history now benefits from a bespoke composite front door but retains all its character and charm including an original Mill stone step.
The grounds and gardens are simply stunning with many areas to explore and enjoy. These include a mature, well stocked front garden featuring an original well, patio areas, vegetable plots, space for chickens, a timber garage, workshop, and a green house. Beyond the garden are extensive open paddocks, perfect for sheep or equestrian use. There is ample parking with a sweeping driveway that circles around the Windmill Studio.
