This superb semi-attached period house has been in long ownership and it is easy to see why. Tucked away behind high stone walls, this property oozes charm and character and offers great space for a family. It is one of a pair situated at the end of a long walled driveway with parking for 2/3 cars, (only the residents of no.1 being able to park on the driveway).

We understand that this property was originally occupied by the gardener for Laywell House and is linked (by one room and an archway) to next door, which was used by the Head Groom.

The main accommodation comprises 3 spacious reception rooms and 4 bedrooms.  A cottage kitchen opens to a bright breakfast area with a glazed roof and a door which leads to the courtyard to the side.  (This ease of access to the outside space is also found in the lounge, dining room and main bedroom).  Also on the ground floor is bedroom 3, which is a good double room and has potential to create an en-suite shower room if desired.

Upstairs there are 3 further bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en-suite shower and washbasin, plus access onto a roof terrace overlooking the garden.  The family bathroom, with its 4-piece suite (including a ball and claw roll-top bath) is also on this level.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property - not so large that they will take forever to maintain, but large enough to provide areas of colour, shade, seclusion and also storage, with the whole enjoying a sunny south-westerly aspect.

Viewing is highly recommended and by appointment only please.

The property is set back from Summer Lane and approached between stone pillars and across a gravelled driveway with high stone walls on either side. (The residents of no.2 Wistaria Cottages enjoy a right of way on foot over the driveway). There is a period cast-iron streetlamp and a heavy timber door gives access into the garden at one end. A further pair of timber doors give access into a semi-circular stone-built workshop/store (7’6” x 7’9” ave. plus entrance recess) which is in the garden and has a door to same. The garden is a delight and enjoys a very sunny south westerly aspect, with a good degree of shelter coming from the high stone walls on 2 sides. It comprises a patio area adjacent to the property, part-overhung with mature Wisteria and a lawn with feature sandstone trough, enclosed by well-stocked shrub borders. There are raised growing beds which are overlooked by a covered timber seating area, behind which is a useful undercover storage area – ideal for canoes and garden items. Next to that a door leads into a lock-up store: 6’6” ave. x 9’3”, with a polycarbonate roof. Adjacent are two semi-circular seating areas with space for a chimnea – ideal for evening garden parties.
