If you are looking for a spacious countryside family home in a delightful village and with panoramic views then look no further. Mulberry Cottage sits in an elevated position with grounds extending to almost ½ acre providing simply stunning views of the Monkton Combe valley. The property is approached through wrought iron gate and stone wall surrounding the front garden. The garden is laid to lawn and you pass delightful apple and mulberry trees via a concrete path to the entrance. Once inside you are greeted by a spacious hallway with stairs to the first floor and access to the lounge, open-plan kitchen diner and cloakroom. The kitchen dining area has recently been opened up by the current owners and now provides a magnificent family hub to the house with access to the sun room sitting area too. The kitchen units are faced in birch and are topped with solid beech and granite work surfaces. A breakfast bar provides lovely views through a window to the side aspect and the kitchen is given a sense of space with a vaulted ceiling. The dining area is of a good size and could accommodate a large dining table and chairs for those extended family gatherings. The sun room is an absolute delight with large dual aspect windows providing stunning views of the surrounding gardens and countryside and sliding glazed doors providing access to the decked garden seating area. Through the dining room you have access to the comfort of the large lounge, again with dual aspect windows and feature Bath stone fireplace. The first floor landing provides access to all bedrooms, bathroom and loft which has a loft ladder, is partially boarded and deep insulated. The feature bedroom here is bedroom two which is situated to the rear aspect providing glorious countryside views through stone mullion windows. Again a vaulted ceiling provides a real sense of space and the Velux window lets the light flood into the room. The master bedroom is a very good size and provides built-in wardrobes. Bedroom three is a good size double room with bedroom four being a single in size and currently used as a study with lovely views across the garden and beyond.
Externally to the side aspect of the property is a decked seating area which can be accessed from the sun room and makes a great spot for entertaining during those summer evenings. The extensive gardens provide established shrubs, beds and fruit trees with a veritable small orchard of pear, apple, cherry and plum trees in stock. The rolling and landscaped lawns extend to a seating area in the far corner which provides the most lovely and tranquil views of the surrounding valley and countryside. To the front of the property is a garage, car-port and two further off-street parking spaces.
