THREE WORDS - Family. Character. Home
Malt Kiln Cottage is a charming blend of rustic and contemporary style. Situated on the edge of a highly desirable village, this delightful family home dates back to 1860’s and enjoys a generous sized plot with a large private south facing garden. The current owners have lovingly updated their home creating a wonderfully light and airy space with a contemporary touch. As you head through the timber gate you are encompassed by the beautiful cottage gardens, mature trees and privacy. From the moment you step through the door there is a sense of calm and warmth, it just feels like a home should be.
Lets Step Inside
The cottage has a wonderful flow, you can enter the property from the front through the sunroom doors or through the back door into the utility room, this is perfectly placed for dumping muddy wellies after an afternoon walk or bringing the shopping in from the car. Walk through to the country style kitchen with free standing solid beech units and super stainless steel “Smeg “range master, ideal for the Master chef! This leads to a superb open plan living room, plenty of space for the whole family doing their own thing or entertaining with friends. It is wonderfully light with French doors opening out towards the garden, the “Charnwood “multi fuel stove makes it cosy, we can imagine snuggling on the sofa with a hot chocolate on a wintery night. Carry on through to the music room/hallway which has oodles of under stairs storage cupboards. The sunroom is to the front, where you can enjoy a quiet coffee whilst keeping an eye on the little ones as they play in the garden.
The turnaround staircase leads a split-level landing. To the left is the master bedroom, with white painted fitted cupboards allowing plenty of space for a super king-sized bed and additional bedroom furniture. There is a second double bedroom and to the right is a third double bedroom, both with painted fitted cupboards. The newly fitted family bathroom has a contemporary feel, with panelled bath and walk in shower with large rainfall shower head, ideal for the morning rush or simply relaxing after a hectic day.
The cottage is set on a generous sized plot. Set well back from the road the garden is private and enclosed. The driveway is gravelled, with ample parking for numerous cars and even a camper van, leading on to a block paved area. The garden is south facing enjoying the sun all day long. The lawned gardens are neat and tidy with an array of well stocked mature plants and flowering borders, there is also a vegetable garden, a haven for those green fingered buyers. There is plenty of outdoor space for a children’s play area, a trampoline, swing set and playhouse! There is a super paved seating area for the grown-ups, we can imagine alfresco dining with friends and family while the children play long into the early evening.
There is a single garage with power and two outbuildings, one of which would make a perfect workroom/studio.
