Three Words – Chocolate Box Cottage
Duderl Cottage is positioned on the edge of the idyllic village of Alne and is a charming blend of character and rustic style, it is a place you want to call home.
The Grade II Listed cottage was the original stable block of the former Malt Kiln Brewery and dates back to 1860. It was converted seventeen years ago and enjoys an exclusive setting for five barn conversions and detached cottage. The current vendor has since sympathetically extended and completely refurbished this impressive home providing a third bedroom. It is beautifully decorated in a stunning style throughout; every wall is adorned with subtle Farrow and Ball tones complimented with tasteful wallpaper, stylish flooring and sash windows. With attention to detail and all the finishing touches, any lucky buyer can simply move their furniture in and call it home!
The Cottage is tucked away to the rear making it lovely and private. Pull into the gravel driveway and you immediately have sense of tranquil living. Walking through the pretty painted gate the garden is just as immaculate as the inside. The superior oak-built porch is welcoming and a lovely addition.
Inside you are greeted with a stylish bespoke kitchen. Thoughtfully designed, it offers everything you could wish for! The subtle tone of the Farrow and Ball painted cupboards marries superbly with the granite worksurface. There is space for everything. The central island is ideal for busy breakfasts or chatting whilst watching the chef at work.
The dining room is simply stunning and can accommodate the largest of tables with cosy log burner, this room is perfect for hosting family get togethers or sophisticated dinner parties. Afterwards, why not retire to the snug with coffee. With pitched ceiling and log burning stove this recent extension has created a much needed second reception room and is a lovely space for snuggling up on the sofa with a hot chocolate on a wintery night watching a movie.
The spiral staircase is quirky adding a touch of contemporary style. Upstairs is just as beautifully decorated in the gorgeous style as the rest of the cottage. There are two double bedrooms, one with Farrow and Ball painted wardrobes. The single also has a painted wardrobe and built in dressing table. The skylight allows lots of natural light to flood in. The family bathroom with rainfall shower over the bath is perfect for busy mornings or a place to unwind after a hectic day, perhaps with a glass of fizz!
The pristine garden is enclosed with lawned areas and Yorkshire stone paving. There is a lovely dining area and we can imagine alfresco dining with friends watching the sun go down. The well-stocked raised borders encompassed by railway sleepers are beautifully kept. There is a single garage with power, super for tumble dryer and additional fridge/freezer. There are two parking spaces. To the side a Farrow and Ball painted gate is home to a useful log store.
Emsley Mavor thinks this a perfect property to call home.
