If like us you pour over the pages of Country Living, dreaming of village life in your own characterful period property, then let us introduce you to 1 Park View. A delightful three bedroom, end of terrace period cottage that is undoubtedly cosy but packs a mean punch. It has been carefully and lovingly looked after by its current owners – who incidentally purchased the property from us some five years ago. Revisiting it, it’s so lovely to see just how much care and attention the cottage has been given in that time. It is beautifully decorated throughout to create a homely haven, and it’s not just the cosmetic side of things that have received some tlc. Starting right at the top of the house, the top floor has been completely stripped back, reinsulated, replastered, redecorated and a new bathroom suite installed – with a rolltop bath of course! - to make a lovely, cosy master ensuite. The dorma windows of this room has also been reclad. On the second floor the shower room has been given a new suite and new tiling. The landing window was replaced with double glazing, whilst in the front bedroom a new secondary glazing unit was installed. Both bedrooms are a good size and in second bedroom at the back you’ll find fitted wardrobes providing plenty of storage. Downstairs and into the kitchen/dining room which is at the heart of the cottage and is the room that greets you as you walk through the (new) front door. The contemporary cream kitchen offset by “Acacia” wood worktops and a Belfast style sink is exactly what you would expect to find and needed no attention. New double glazed windows were put in and the walls of this room though have been skimmed, plastered, redecorated and new tiled splashbacks added. The built-in fridge was also removed to maximise storage and use of the space available. To the front of the house the cosy living room has been made even cosier (and the whole house for that matter) by the installation of a wood burner which we understand gives out a whopping 9 kilo watts of energy. The owners tell us they rarely need the electronic central heating on once this beast has got going! In addition there is insulation under the newly laid engineered wood flooring in the living room. Back through the kitchen and through to the boot room which now has more character thanks to wood panelling, and with the repositioning of the washing machine into the adjoining cloakroom has been opened up, creating oodles of space to store coats, boots and maybe muddy dogs after a Sunday afternoon walk! A new double glazed window was also put in. And finally, the always useful downstairs cloakroom where a new sink has been put in and the wall’s given a lick of paint. With the exception of the cloakroom, new internal oak doors have bee put in throughout the house. Outside the front wall to the front of the property has been replaced by iron railings and a gate to match the rest of the terrace and even more kerb appeal has been created with the addition of a smart block paving pathway leading you to the front door and side gate. To the back of the cottage the level of the ground outside the back door has been dropped to create a gorgeous little courtyard area which, south facing, is the perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner. Steps lead you up to a decked area which has been extended and will now happily take a bbq, table & chairs, whilst the lawn area beyond has also been widened, again to maximise on the space available. At the very end of the garden is a garden shed to store all your tools and as we mentioned, the garden is south facing, and will be basked in sunshine all summer long. What more could you ask for!
