The Property
Entering Ash Tree Cottage we are welcomed by the generous reception hall where the charm & character of this fascinating building is instantly apparent. Tiles underfoot provide an attractive, practical flooring solution which flows through past the stair way and into our reception lobby where doors open to all of our main living spaces. Exposed timbers line the space and an attractive timber staircase rises to the first floor. At the foot of the stairs we pass our family bathroom which is fitted with a modern white suite set against fully tiled walls and floors. Past the bathroom we find our first two double bedrooms set to the head of the hall. Both rooms enjoy built-in wardrobes and large windows looking to the front and rear of the property respectively. Returning to the central lobby we find a glazed door opening to the snug, part of the original building the room offers an abundance of character with exposed beams and a most attractive feature fireplace providing a charming focal point to the room. Across the lobby glazed French doors open to our kitchen. This generous room offers a vast range of wall and base units set against contrasting work surfaces, our sink is set below a large window and an attractive range style cooker is found in situ, the room offers ample space for dining whilst French doors take in the view over the garden and open to our patio. From the kitchen we step into the utility area as we pass the cloakroom and a door opens to the home office/playroom, this room is versatile in its use and has served as a comfortable double guest bedroom. Returning to the lobby glazed doors open to the siting room which at over 18.ft provides a superb family room, dual aspect windows fill the space with natural light whilst an attractive wood burning stove provides a cosy focal point to the room. French doors open from here to the garden room allowing the two spaces to flow seamlessly. Here we make the most of the south westerly aspect and enjoy the views of the garden and landscape beyond, this generous room 'has become the hub of the home' comments our vendor, an addition centred around family living and entertaining alike.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor we find the generous landing, a velux window fills this space with natural light. From here doors open to, two further double bedrooms, both of which enjoy light flowing in through the roof windows, the rear bedroom boasts a view of the established gardens and open fields beyond whilst completing the accommodation we find the shower room, fitted with a large shower cubicle, wash basin and w/c, from here a door opens to the attic space providing excellent storage.

Outside
Approaching the property from Free Lane we are welcomed by the first drive way where we find our off road parking and access to the detached garage. A path leads us along the front of the grounds to the front door whilst access to both sides leads us to the rear gardens. The grounds extend 0.5 Acre (stms) providing the perfect space to enjoy the south westerly facing rear aspect. Stepping from the French doors in both the kitchen dining room and the sun room we find a charming patio area framed with a range of low lying flower beds filled with perennial shrubs and flowers, we find an attractive seating area as we head past the rear of the house toward the garage and utility entrance. From the patio we flow to the main grounds which are laid to lawn and filled with a vast selection mature trees, established hedging frames the boundaries. At the head of the plot we find our second vehicular entrance leading to the timber barn. It is noted that the barn previously held planning permission for conversion to a holiday cottage. This has now lapsed and would be for the new owner to investigate possibilities upon ownership.
