Property Snapshot

Bache Cottage offers a fantastic opportunity for someone to create a wonderful, country cottage home. This cottage is in need of some modernisation and has potential to reconfigure the upstairs layout.

The property is approached from the private lane via a pedestrian gated access, with two pathways leading from either side of the property, both with entrances into the cottage. There is an agreed parking space by the workshop, on the private lane, for which the property has a right of way. The main access is via a rear garden gate, leading down, via steps and a small ramp, onto an enclosed patio with mature planting, and a further patio area with a summerhouse. The summerhouse enjoys 240 volt mains lighting, 13 amp power sockets, double timber skin and 50mm insulation construction; which could make it ideal for a home office.

The property is of stone construction with brick quoins. A porch canopy above the European Oak garden entrance door leads directly into the kitchen. There is a large window to your right as you walk in the door, with a stainless-steel sink underneath, classic quarry tiled floor, electric Aga and an enormous pantry to the rear of the room.

The pantry has shelving, and a large window, with space for a washer/dryer, and fridge.

Downstairs shower room
Opposite the Aga, there is a door which takes you into a small hallway, with a door leading to the downstairs shower-room, which is equipped with a white, close-coupled WC, and matching pedestal basin, with a walk-in shower.

Reception room
To the left of the front door there is a generous sized, bright, duel aspect living room, again with period quarry tiles and working open fire. The room could blend itself to both dining and sitting use. Two further planked doors lead from this room, one to the first floor stairs the other to a vestibule giving access to the cellar and second entrance door.

The cellar is under the main reception room and has a reduced ceiling height, but would be perfect for storing wine!

Bedroom one
From the living room, stairs lead up to a small landing, directly on the right-hand side is the master bedroom, which is a large double, with a large window overlooking the front of the property, making this a bright and cheerful room. There is an electric storage heater and a small, open and working fireplace, which is a rather charming and unusual feature.

Family bathroom
Straight ahead at the top of the stairs, lies a well-equipped family bathroom, which has a very practical airing cupboard, to the right as soon as you come in the door, and a matching white suite, comprising a bath, pedestal washbasin with mirror above, and a low level loo. There is a window next to the sink, which floods the room with natural light making this another bright room, and a shower enclosure opposite this.

Bedroom two
Through the bathroom is the small, but bright single bedroom.

With careful planning, the upstairs accommodation could be reconfigured to optimise its use.

To the north of the property there is a detached, stone workshop, with an adjoining brick-built store, which is perfect for garden tools, or perhaps could be converted into a small studio for painting/pottery, an office space or a garage giving additional parking. There is potential here for someone to make this building work for them, and to get creative with the space.

Septic tank shared with two neighbouring properties.

Hot water is supplied by the electric Aga or immersion heater, which is in the airing cupboard.
