Situated on the green in the heart of the village, Swift Cottage is built of natural limestone below a thatched roof and is GII Listed. With origins dating to late 16th/early 17th century, the property has evolved over the years and been well cared for and updated by the current owners. Swift Cottage retains a wealth of period features including exposed timber beams and floor boards, flagstones and an Inglenook fireplace with impressive oak bressumer.
An entrance hall with flagstone floor leads to the sitting room, which, with cosy open fireplace, overlooks the green. The dining room also overlooks the green and leads to the kitchen and garden room. The galley style kitchen has a vaulted ceiling, built in work units, granite work surfaces, an integrated fridge and Fisher Paykel dishwasher. The more recently added oak framed garden room has under floor heating and French doors to the garden. The utility room leads to the cloakroom and downstairs shower.
On the first floor, overlooking the green, the principal bedroom has fitted cupboards and exposed wooden floors and leads through to a bathroom and single room, which could also be used as a nursery bedroom or dressing room. To the rear is a detached single story annexe with thatched roof. Used by the current owners as a guest bedroom with sitting area, it could also be used as home office, studio or gym.
Outside, delightful cottage gardens are enclosed. There is a
terrace area and fruit trees. Swift Cottage enjoys right of way
over Chapel Lane to its own private off street parking and double garage with electric doors, power and light. There is
also a further timber store and shed.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
