Fine & Country are delighted to introduce ‘The Spinney’, coming onto the market for the first time in 27 years. This charming character home is set in approximately 1 acre of meticulously maintained grounds and full of flora and fauna.

The cottage, a harmonious blend of original mid-18th century charm, features thick oak beams, cob walls, and lattice windows framing views of the expansive gardens. The property also includes several outbuildings, including a barn and veranda constructed primarily from reclaimed materials.

A timber porch frames a glass frontage and handcrafted oak door, leading to a cloakroom with stone flooring and ample storage. A substantial pine door opens into the entrance hallway, where Australian rosewood flooring and bespoke pine doors with custom hardware create an atmosphere of refined elegance.

The dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room features exposed beams and a generous dining area. The bespoke kitchen, crafted by renowned local carpenter David Hutchings, boasts traditional solid wood carpentry, granite surfaces, and a double butler sink. Vaulted ceilings and skylights flood the space with natural light, highlighting views of the gardens. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, Smeg oven & hob, fridge/freezer, and a two-stove gas AGA. Feature pine doors lead to a walk-in pantry, a custom laundry room, and a boot room with rear garden access.

Australian rosewood flooring extends into the dining room, where a deep-set inglenook fireplace with a log burner serves as the focal point. This dual-aspect room, featuring bespoke pine shutters, offers access to the ‘L’-shaped loggia/garden room, with double glazed windows and parliament-hinged doors opening to the patio and gardens. The sitting room, with an inviting inglenook fireplace and log burner, exudes historical charm, highlighted by the original entrance door leading to the rear porch and gardens. The versatile games room includes custom bookcases and connects to a vaulted office space with an adjacent shower room.

The first floor features ample ceiling height, some vaulted, enhancing the spaciousness and light in all five bedrooms. The master bedroom overlooks the front and rear gardens and includes a walk-in dressing room and en-suite with a Victorian suite and clawfoot bath. The remaining bedrooms are tastefully decorated and serviced by two stylish bathrooms.
