Situated in the pretty village of Merriott, this Hamstone cottage is positioned in the elevated setting of Shiremoor Hill. A gate leads into the immaculate front garden with a path leading to the front door.
The front porch which is designed to accommodate coats and shoes, opens through an inner door to the sitting room which has a feature fireplace containing a recently installed Wood Burning Stove. A set of sliding double doors then open to the dining room which is spacious and can easily accommodate a large dining table.
From here you can then access the newly installed kitchen/diner which forms part of an historic 2 storey extension. The kitchen comes with a range of newly fitted cupboards and wall cabinets and also has a very handy pantry area. The upper floor can be accessed through a timber internal door which provides access to the stairs. Further on you have a door opening to the rear sunroom and also a downstairs WC with space and plumbing for white goods.
From the top of the staircase you reach the first floor landing from which all rooms radiate. The house enjoys three double bedrooms (one of which could be adjusted with the separate dressing room, to create a fourth bedroom). The first floor has a large, rear aspect, family bathroom which enjoys a fabulous fusion of vintage meets new.
A loft on the landing provides access to the loft with a ladder, lighting and part boarding.
The rear garden is very private and secure with a high wall to the rear and fence to the side. This can be accessed from the kitchen or from a side door opening to the rear of the property and external area providing a good access point to the rear garden.
To the right of the house is the access road, owned by a neighbouring property, with right of way for access to a generously proportioned garage to the rear.
The property is offered Freehold.
