3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale


A beautifully presented Grade II listed, three double bedroom cottage situated in the charming village of Croscombe, close to the city of Wells. The property, which has recently been sympathetically refurbished throughout, originally dates back over 500 years with a more 'modern' 300 year old extension and now offers the perfect balance of modern convenience and a wealth of period features.

Upon entering the house is a spacious entrance hall, with a wall of bespoke fitted cupboards with ample space for shoes, coats and general storage. The kitchen/breakfast room is a lovely spacious room with exposed beams and flagstone floors along with dual aspect to both the side and rear gardens. The newly fitted kitchen comprises a range of Shaker style cupboards, an integrated 'self cleaning' oven, induction hob, Belfast sink, larder unit and a cupboard neatly housing the recycling bins. To one side is space for a fridge freezer along with an original, shelved, understairs cupboard, ideal for 'day to day' storage.  A breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the dining area with space for high stools.  The dining area, with ample space for a table to seat six to eight, features an original half glazed cabinet and drawers beneath the breakfast bar. The sitting/dining room is adjacent to the kitchen, this is the older part of the house with a beautiful inglenook fireplace with wood burner as the focal point. This characterful room has space for both comfortable seating and a dining table to seat six to eight people and features exposed beams, mullion windows to the front with window seat beneath, oak floor and a large door to opening to the side of the house.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing which in turn leads to two of the double bedrooms and the main family bathroom. The first of the  bedrooms is generously proportioned and features a dual aspect, original elm floorboards and a bespoke fitted shallow cupboard. The second bedroom, again a bright and spacious room, has a large mullioned window with window seat and a view of the river, along with a fireplace as a stunning focal point and a built-in wardrobe.

The newly fitted bathroom is a stunning room with exposed beams, roll top bath, large glass shower cubicle and vanity wash basin all the fixtures and fittings are of high quality with marble effect porcelain tiles throughout.  In one corner is a built-in laundry cupboard with reclaimed French shutter doors and space for both a washing machine and tumble dryer.

To the second floor is the principal bedroom, a large double with an abundance of natural light along with double doors opening to reveal a spacious dressing room with ample space for a large collection of clothes and shoes. This notably large cupboard could be split to provide both an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe (subject to necessary consents) and we are advised that there is some plumbing in place, in the bathroom beneath, that would make this relatively easy.


The large garden can be found to the rear of the house, tiered over three levels with new paving laid on the generous terrace, with a pond and space for outside furniture and entertaining. The large garden, on the upper level, is newly fenced and mainly laid to lawn. Within the garden are a wide variety of shrubs, bushes and  fruit trees. A newly paved courtyard, close to the kitchen, provides a marvellous space for outside seating and entertaining and benefits from an outside tap with stone trough beneath. In one corner is a useful stone built store, ideal for garden storage. To the front of the property is a parking area for two cars and a discreetly screened area for bins and recycling.  To one side of the parking area is an area of lawn and to the other, adjoining the garden store is a garden studio, with wooden floors and Velux windows.  This bright and versatile space could be used as an office, art studio, yoga studio or similar.

On the opposite side of Long Street is an area of garden which leads down to the River Sheppey, the space has recently been cleared and offers a blank canvas for the new owner to create a further area to sit, relax and appreciate the riverside wildlife.
