Enchanting Entrance

Wisteria vines, climbing roses and clematis surround the entrance, awaiting their turn to bloom, promising an additional layer of beauty and fragrance as you enter this picture-perfect cottage.

A glazed door brings you into a wide and welcoming hallway. The staircase ahead invites you upstairs, but first turn left into a bright and spacious lounge.

Flooded with light, courtesy of the large sash and French windows, and carpeted throughout in neutral tones, this spacious lounge is the perfect place to relax.

On warmer evenings, open the French windows that overlook the cottage garden and take in the summer air that is filled with the scent of honeysuckle and lilac. Take a spot on the large, cushioned window seat to watch the wildlife in the rear garden or relax in the pages of your favourite book.

In winter, light the wood-burning stove, inset in its handsome stone surroundings to curl up against the flames for a movie or games night with the family. With so much space and comfort, the room is flexible and adaptable to any occasion.

Effortless Entertaining

Flow through to the large open-plan kitchen-diner, where Fired Earth limestone tiles stretch out underfoot, providing both a practical and beautiful flooring for the space.

Ideal for hosting large dinner-parties or family meals, the spacious dining area is the ideal place to entertain. A glazed door opens to the paved patio leading to the garden and curved seating area, perfect to wander outside with a drink or snack in hand.

On summer evenings, take marshmallows out to warm on the firepit, before returning to the dining room to indulge in a decadent dessert!

Make your way into the cosy country kitchen, fully updated in 2013, where the oil-fired AGA radiates a warm heat beneath a handsome wooden mantel. Bespoke wooden cabinetry lines the walls above and below the granite worktops, offering plenty of storage space and other appliances include an integrated fridge and dishwasher.
Discover a pantry just outside the kitchen, ready to keep all food and items neatly organised, along with additional room for a fridge and freezer under the worktop. An additional door provides access out to the covered driveway and garage, making for a handy entrance point to the home when returning from adventures outdoors with canine companions.

Returning to the entrance hall, pass the convenient large cloakroom and step up into the snug. A wood-burning stoves sits in the stone fireplace, ready to be lit in the wintertime. Bespoke cabinetry offers additional storage, and the large windows display the wonderful front garden and fill the room in light.

Two more bedrooms can be found along the landing, both are bright and airy, and perfect places to rest and relax.

Gardens and Grounds

Both front and rear gardens to Wayside Cottage are filled with as much personality and charm as the home itself.

To the front, a cottage style garden is filled with lush foliage. With something for all seasons, from snowdrops to daffodils to tulips, with geraniums, forget-me-nots and the apple and lilac trees, it will never fail to be something to admire.

Step across the York stone slabs to the bench that catches the morning sun and sit for a while with a coffee as you watch the wildlife dance amongst the flowers. Wisteria wends itself around the door, along with honeysuckle, lilac, and a climbing rose, framing the charming entrance to the home and providing a wonderful display of scent and colour in the summer months.

A cobblestone driveway to the side of the home offers parking with a carport providing shelter and leading to the large garage. Fitted with power, store all gardening and sporting equipment safely away from the elements. Additionally, there is a storeroom located just off the garage for extra storage. A door from the garage leads into the back garden, emerging into the patio area with a bespoke curved stone seating area, perfect for entertaining guests. An ideal place for a firepit, gather around friends and family for nights of watching the flames and enjoying in conversation.

Steps lead up to an immaculate lawn, surrounded by mature plants and trees. Make your way into the summerhouse and take a seat inside, sheltered, and private, it offers the chance to enjoy the garden whatever the weather.

In summer months, catch the last of the sun on the patio area and dine alfresco, as you take in the haven of the garden that is peaceful, private, and filled with wonder.
