Gannock Cottage

This quintessential country cottage is set within beautiful grounds and tucked away up a lane to create a wonderfully relaxing and private country home.

The house is well presented with a natural flow and all rooms enjoy pretty views over the gardens. There are some some lovely features including exposed brick and flint sections of wall, to provide a nod to its history, and elegant fireplaces with wood burning stoves. The main front porch steps into the the central hallway with the two principal reception rooms to either side and the cloak room. A second entrance leads into a lovely boot room, essential for country living and on into the generous kitchen which connects to a large family room and separate utility room.

The open-plan kitchen has a lovely AGA oven and matching companion oven / hob and plenty of room for a family dining table.

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, three of which have en-suite bath/shower rooms, a family bathroom (serving bedroom 4) and a study.

The Annexe

Separate to the main house is an attractive oak framed annexe with garaging for three cars, and a self contained flat, which is very nicely presented with a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

The Grounds

The house is approached through a five bar gate into a generous gravel parking area. The garden surrounding the house is beautifully maintained and interspersed with mature trees and shrubs creating interesting and pretty areas to enjoy. Stepping out from the family room and the sitting room, is a sunken terrace garden, ideal for alfresco dining.

Connecting all the areas is a garden path, leading to the full size hard tennis court, a stable and tack room with yard and side vehicle access leading to the paddock and woodland area. Our clients, whilst not horse orientated, have maintained all the facilities and sowed the paddocks to create a beautiful wild flower meadow.

The neighbouring land is an open agricultural field to one side and more paddocks to the other with the woodland. The immediate woodland area has been acquired by our client and will be included in the sale. The house and paddock amount to just over 3 acres with just under an acre of woodland.
