STYLE – Charming Period Cottage
HIGHLIGHTS – Extensively Updated and Renovated to an Impressive Standard.
THREE WORDS – Character. Space. Village.
Dunston Cottage enjoys an elevated position situated in the heart of the highly desirable village of Stillington. It is a charming blend of contemporary and rustic style.
The owners have lovingly refurbished and updated the cottage creating a beautiful home, the juxtaposition between the old and the new is simply perfect. The property oozes period features with beamed ceilings, Inglenook fireplace and latch doors. The showstopper is the living kitchen with underfloor heating and bifolding doors that open out on to the patio garden. Upstairs has been rejigged turning the fourth bedroom into a walk-in dressing room. Each room is beautifully decorated with attention to detail and all the finishing touches. There is simply nothing to do but move your furniture in and call it home!
Walk in through the solid oak door into a vestibule and through to a welcoming sitting room. Immediately you feel a sense of history with beamed ceilings, Inglenook fireplace housing a log burning stove, we can imagine snuggling on the sofas watching a family movie on a wintery night.
The Show Stopper!
Step into the living kitchen, this is a super sociable space where the whole family can be together, each doing their own thing. The newly fitted “Neptune “Kitchen has plenty of subtle coloured cupboards and drawers and perfectly complement the soft grey ceramic worksurface, integral dishwasher and wine fridge. There is space for the Rangemaster and American fridge. The breakfast bar is ideal for the morning breakfast rush and the dining table is neatly positioned to rustle up supper with friends and family. Head to living area, which is bathed in natural light, the exposed brick wall gives a rustic feel and the bifolding doors are ideal bringing the outside in.
There is a useful shower room, with cupboard housing the washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a separate cupboard housing the Baxi boiler with Hive controlled heating and hot water (fitted in 2015).
Take the stairs where you will find three double bedrooms. The master bedroom has lovely rooftop views and farmland beyond. Head through to a mirrored walk in dressing room any fashionista will love! The ensuite is contemporary with tones of grey tiling, shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin and wc.
There are two further double bedrooms with charming low windows with views of the church. The family bathroom is luxurious with free standing bath with central tap and smart shower attachment, and vanity wash hand basin. The velux window allows natural light to flood in.
Home Office/Garden Room
The former outbuilding has been thoughtfully renovated providing a super home office or would make a glorious sunroom looking out on the landscaped garden.
Dunston Cottage is set on a generous sized plot back on to South Back Lane.
Beyond the bifolds is a paved garden effortlessly framed with colourful climbing roses and cottage style, we can imagine enjoying summer BBQs with friends while the children play in the garden or relaxing after a hectic day with a refreshing G & T watching the sun go down.
Steps lead to the meticulous sculpted garden, busy borders house well established mature flowering plants and perennials. The raised beds are perfect for those looking to grow your own fruit and healthy vegetables, with a useful stone built potting shed with power to the side.
Take the steppingstone path to the double garage which has plenty of storage in the rafters. There are double doors from the garage and electric up and over door to the front. A path to the side leads to secure gate and onto the driveway which has room for 4 cars.
We have a full and extensive list of works that have been carried out in last few years, please contact Emsley Mavor for full details.
