Welcome to Ramsay Cottage.
This charming village property was previously the houses for the stable lads at the Manor House and subsequently converted into one house. Having been built predominantly of stone with rendered southern elevation under a slate tiled roof and with later additions the cottage has retained considerable character reminiscent of a bygone age and requiring some work to reach its full potential.
In true cottage-style, Ramsay Cottage is best approached from the garden to the rear: an ENTRANCE CANOPY PORCH and stable-style door leads through to the welcoming ENTRANCE HALL with exposed timber beam, staircase rising and with cupboard under, feature alcove and doors to the reception rooms. The almost square SITTING ROOM is a delightful room: a fitted window seat ensures enjoyment of the views over the garden, the fields, and the gently undulating countryside beyond. Particularly appealing is the brick, open fireplace rising to ceiling height, with shelved display alcove to one side, and beamed ceiling adding still further to the character. The DINING ROOM boasts a similar south-westerly aspect, having a further ceiling beam, and the former fireplace with bressummer beam; there is a feature alcove and display shelving, whilst a delightful curved wall leads to the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM: particularly light and airy having a dual aspect and with Velux roof window to the vaulted ceiling. There is an array of fitted base and wall mounted cupboards and drawers, with work surfaces, together with an electric hob and double oven. A stable-style door leads outside. From the entrance hall a door leads to the REAR PORCH / CONSERVATORY and doors to outside and the courtyard; alternatively to the CLOAKROOM with wash hand basin, WC and plumbing for a washing machine. There is also access to the separate BOILER ROOM with the Boulter oil fired boiler. A further door leads from the porch to the BOOT ROOM / UTILITY.
On the first floor are three bedrooms and the bathroom; the landing having exposed timber beam and an aspect to the courtyard. The MASTER BEDROOM enjoys a double aspect with some outstanding rural views. Vanity unit with period ‘McDowall Steven & Co’ china wash hand basin, reputably to have been ‘recovered’ from London during the blitz. On a practical note there is access to the loft. BEDROOM TWO is also a double, once again having a dual aspect, vanity unit with wash hand basin and the addition of a built-in wardrobe. BEDROOM THREE is a single bedroom affording good views; it also stores the airing cupboard with a pre-lagged cylinder with immersion. Completing the accommodation is the BATHROOM with wash hand basin, low level WC, and bath with shower over.
To the fore of the Cottage approached over a shared drive is the COURTYARD and parking area for three cars. Also located here is the Oil Storage tank and a greenhouse. The parking area extends to the GARAGE, and the adjacent FORMER STABLE, now workshop with stable door and boarded loft storage, both benefiting from power and light. The garden is approached from the cottage alternatively access to the side of the residence. This pretty garden is largely arranged to lawn with shaped border well stocked with a variety of established trees and shrubs providing an abundance of colour. There is old TOOL SHED with adjoining LOG STORE and small garden pond. From this SOUTH-WESTERLY FACING GARDEN are magnificent uninterrupted views over the adjoining farmland to the undulating countryside beyond. In addition, there is a seating area providing an ideal spot for entertaining or simply enjoying the garden and those views.
