Nestled in the heart of Minstead village, just a short walk from the Village Hall, community shop, local pub,
church and surrounding forest, is this charming detached cottage which is around 200 years old.
The epitome of countryside chic with original features throughout, the home has been beautifully maintained and offers the comforts of modern living with an abundance of character.
The heart of the home arguably lies within the open plan kitchen/dining room, well-equipped with bespoke shaker style units, solid wood work surfaces, a Leisure Roma range cooker and butler sink.
Part of the original cottage, the living room is the perfect space to relax and unwind in the cooler weather, with a feature inset woodburning stove. From here, double doors lead to an additional reception room, currently utilised as a home office/reading room.
Completing the ground floor is a tranquil garden room, awash with natural light and an outlook onto the courtyard garden.
Stairs rise to the first floor, where there are three double bedrooms and recently renovated family bathroom where a free standing roll-top bath and waterfall shower offer a touch of luxury.
The principal bedroom is a true haven with a stunning vaulted ceiling, feature wooden beams, en-suite shower room and built-in storage.
Outside, an attractive front garden bordered by picket fencing provides an abundance of curb appeal and to the rear, a low-maintenance courtyard offers an idyllic space for entertaining and alfresco dining in the warmer months.
