  • Bedrooms: 4
The perfect example of a beautifully presented charming cottage, situated within generous grounds and importantly offered for sale with no onward chain.

Believed to have been built around the middle of the 18th century, Germaine Cottage originally formed three separate cottages. Since then, the property has been sympathetically restored which has seen the house reconfigured, the entire building refurbished and skilfully extended in more recent years.

The expansive accommodation on the ground floor is particularly adaptable and flows well, combining both family and more formal rooms, with the scope and potential for further expansion in particular to the propertys' side elevation. The house is complemented by deceptively spacious and flexible accommodation, whilst retaining many original features of the cottage and blending the history of the house with modern day living.

The ground floor further benefits from a welcoming entrance hallway with an understairs cupboard and ground floor bathroom comprising a shower, vanity hand wash basin and low flush w.c. Oak effect engineered boards run throughout the ground floor with the exception of the kitchen which is Yorkshire stone flags.

The present owners currently use the lounge as their snug, which is complemented by an impressive stove set within an exposed brick surround fireplace. This room can be used for a variety of purposes, such as a formal dining room or second sitting room, depending on the individuals requirements.

The principal sitting room merges from the snug and provides a spacious yet cosy feel enjoying ample space to accommodate appropriate furniture. There are a pair of french doors to the rear elevation which connect perfectly to the outdoors for entertaining.

The kitchen completes the ground floor arrangement, having a range of wall and base units to two sides incorporating an integral dishwasher, fridge freezer, 5 ring gas cooker and electric oven below. The country style kitchen has an exposed wooden beam and contributes to the charm and character of the property.

Located off the kitchen is a useful utility room having some wall and base units, storage space and a side door providing access to the propertys' grounds.

The first floor is equally impressive and enjoys four generous, well proportioned double bedrooms, two of which benefit from en-suite facilities. The principal bedroom is located to the rear and enjoys a walk-in wardrobe with fitted shelving and an en suite having a bath with shower. Twin double glazed windows provide ample natural light and enjoy views across the rear garden.

Bedroom two has a stunning vaulted ceiling with two Velux windows and a built in wardrobe running the full width of the room. There is a beautiful en-suite with underfloor heating, surrounding full height tiles, shower, floating hand wash basin and a low flush w.c.

All four bedrooms benefit from a double glazed window and central heating radiator.

To the outside, the property is accessed from Garmancarr Lane and in turns provides off street parking for up to 4 motor vehicles. There is a converted garage which the present owners have divided into two, having a section for storage and a hobby room. The front garden has an elevated position, being mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by brick boundaries. There is a flagged pathway running either side of the property which leads to the side and rear gardens.

The rear garden is without doubt one of the main selling features of the property having a well presented and private outdoor space, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. Immediately from the property, there is a patio area underneath a timber framed pergola being perfectly positioned to enjoy the sun throughout the day and into the evening. A Jamie Oliver purpose built pizza oven is included within the sale along with the sheds located to the side of the property.

The garden itself is predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders, being enclosed to all three sides by fence and brick wall boundaries. There are a range of established trees and shrubs providing a vast degree of privacy.

The property provides one of those increasingly rare opportunities to acquire such a beautifully presented home within a peaceful rural setting. Therefore, as the acting agents we strongly advise an early inspection.
