A timber framed ‘chocolate box’ cottage found in a quiet country lane upon the fringe of the Novington Estate and East Chiltington village, 1 Keepers Cottage truly is a joy to behold. This semi-detached period cottage of considerable aesthetic charm and character is ideally located within landscaped gardens that afford far reaching views over the adjoining countryside. The delightful setting offers a rural retreat for those who are looking to achieve tranquillity and privacy yet be within walking distance of amenities such as the village church and pub (The Jolly Sportsman).
The present owners have lovingly refurbished, extended and tended the property and grounds. Works have included complete rewiring; considerable replumbing; the replacement of both en-suite bathrooms as well as the ground floor suite; the feature fireplace within the sitting room was replaced, and the kitchen enhanced with new units. The appreciable level of work which has been undertaken with great diligence, care and attention (wheelchair access) has been signed off by the building control officer. Outside the beautifully landscaped gardens are a true feature offering a high degree of privacy, being well screened and bounded by established hedging that is a refuge for bird life, all deriving the sense of the idyllic location.
English Heritage believe the property to have origins dating circa the late 16th Century when formed as three homes. This highly individual period home is understood to have been converted into two cottages in the early 19th Century. Today, the well-proportioned and most adaptable accommodation, as detailed in the accompanying floor plan, incorporates a wealth of charm and character. This fabulous home of unrelenting quality is served by oil fired central heating, private drainage and benefits from secondary glazed windows. An accompanied viewing appointment is highly recommended to appreciate the fabulous accommodation and highly individual setting of this fine country home, that is ideal for an active family or downsizer.
Agents Note: Please be advised that the septic tank that is in situ requires replacing. The present owners propose to replace the existing system with a Klargester or the equivalent within the front garden of the cottage, however this will be done once the vendors have consulted fully with the incoming purchaser.
