Located on the outskirts of Eversley Village and steeped in history, Stable Cottage sits on a plot of circa 1.21 of an acre and is approached via electric double gates opening onto a long shared driveway, leading to a double barn style garage and parking for multiple vehicles. The property is flanked by paddocks on one side and lime trees and a pedestrian avenue on the other, through which, it is thought locally, Geoffrey Chaucer once traversed whilst composing The Canterbury Tales.
This individual attractive family home offers 4122 sq ft of flexible well-proportioned accommodation, ideal for family living and entertaining. The principal reception room is arranged around a courtyard garden all with French doors leading out.
As you walk through the front door and into the large entrance hall you will notice that there are no less than five formal reception rooms, including a large dining room located just off the kitchen/breakfast room. There is a study/playroom which is currently being used as a work from home salon, with access into the cloakroom, with vanity unit and stone bowl sink. This room is perfect for someone who wishes to work from home or to run a business.
As you continue to walk through the property downstairs, you will access a separate utility room and the formal cosy sitting room with a beautiful open fireplace; an ideal room just to wind down and relax in the evenings. Furthermore there is an observatory with sky lights allowing plenty of natural light to flood the family room which also has double French doors leading into the stunning courtyard style garden.
The large drawing room, currently used as a games room, has a striking brick open fireplace and is the perfect place to entertain both family and friends. There is then a staircase that leads to the “annexe” which has access into two double bedrooms and a four piece family bathroom which serves both bedrooms. This would make an ideal annexe for an elderly relative, au-pair, teenagers or as guest accommodation.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of wooden fronted units which have recently undergone a “facelift” with contrasting granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and a two door oil Aga.
On the first floor the dual aspect main bedroom benefits a recently refitted high spec en-suite bathroom which features a modern free-standing bath and a double shower, and views over the neighbouring fields. There are a further three bedrooms, one of which has fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle, which has also been refitted to an exceptional standard.
