This outstanding detached period cottage has been the subject of a comprehensive restoration and sympathetic extension program, resulting in a charming home of immense personality. The property retains a wealth of original features and is complemented by a stunning rural setting, set back from a quiet lane in the very sought after area of Hunston Green.With origins dating back to around the 17th century and thought to have originally been built as a barn, this delightful home has been used as a very successful holiday let for the current owners, and displays features including many exposed breams, a fine Inglenook fireplace and polished brick flooring. The beautifully arranged accommodation is offered with no onward chain and currently in brief comprises: traditional entrance door opening to an entrance porch, with door to a delightful sitting room retaining a brick floor, windows to front, rear and side and a fine Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove.

On the first floor are two comfortable bedrooms with exposed timbers, vaulted ceilings and painted wooden flooring.

The gardens are a delightful feature of the cottage extending in all to about one quarter of an acre (s.t.s). A five bar gate opens from the lane and gives access to a brick built garage and wood store. The cottage is approached down a charming brick pathway leading to a front garden area stocked with an abundance of flowering plants and shrubs. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn whilst enclosed by mature native hedge row trees providing an excellent degree of privacy. There are a variety of mature trees including apple and wild plum trees and an abundance of wild berries. The gardens also provide countryside views. Outside the kitchen doors there are also two brick herringbone terraces that provide useful outdoor living areas.
