This substantial, picturesque character cottage, believed to date back to the late 17th century, sits centrally on a mature plot with views over open fields. Located within walking distance of Twyford train station, the property has been sympathetically extended over the years to create a beautiful family home, whilst retaining character features throughout, including exposed walls and ceiling timbers and large open fireplaces. Approached by a sweeping gravel driveway leading to the detached double garage, there is ample parking at the front of the house, the front garden has a high evergreen hedge at the boundary, providing a good degree of privacy.
The spacious accommodation is set over two floors with two sets of stairs. The main reception room benefits from underfloor heating and is divided into flexible seating areas and features an open fireplace with a brick surround, this opens onto a light and airy Amdega conservatory, with lovely views over the garden and the fields beyond. The family room also has a fireplace and leads into the study. On the other side of the main reception room is a delightful dining room with flagstone flooring, an open fireplace and double doors leading onto the garden terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room also has flagstone flooring, a range of bespoke units with Silestone work surfaces and built-in appliances, including a Falcon cooker. There is a spacious utility room and cloakroom, with a stable door opening onto a charming courtyard garden, to the side of the property. The dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility all benefit from underfloor heating.

One of the most common mistakes made by buyers is not speaking to a Mortgage Advisor before starting their search. Rates change all of the time and banks only look at the mortgage rates they personally offer. You never know, by speaking to an advisor, you might be able to afford a larger home on smaller repayments!
It’s shocking that nationally, almost 50% of property sales don’t actually reach completion. That’s often due to required legal processes and a lack of communication. Avoid being a part of this shocking stat by using our specialist Conveyancing services, we help you find and actually move in to your dream home.
When buying a home, it’s a good idea to have an additional survey carried out before progressing too far with the purchase. This protects you from any hidden surprises later down the line! Mortgage Surveys do not check the condition of the property so may not highlight things you should be aware of.
