Dating back to the 1830s, this historic whitewashed brick cottage was once used as accommodation for the servants of the adjoining property and retains many traditional features such as dark wooden beams, beautiful fireplaces, paneled doors traditional woods and a paved courtyard.
Extended over the years, the property has surprisingly spacious accommodation with its four double bedrooms, a generous but comfortable living room, as well as a dining room and a veranda offering plenty of flexible space, perfect for a growing family.
Over the past 20 years the current owners have made a series of upgrades and in the last year they have updated the mudroom and family bathroom and installed an impressive wood burning stove in the beautiful fireplace from the living room.
The accommodation is well laid out over three floors and comprises an entrance hall leading to a dining room, a family lounge and a lovely kitchen, as well as a veranda overlooking the rear garden on the ground floor.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom, while from the first floor landing a further staircase goes up to the second floor to provide access to two further double bedrooms.
Opening a blue door from the road you are greeted by a private gated courtyard to the front of the house with stone paving and a fabulous brick wood fired pizza oven.
This provides a secluded sun trap in the morning and benefits from a range of cottage plantings including mature hydrangea, a range of perennials, fragrant jasmine and climbing roses.
The courtyard provides access to a log shed and the cottage’s blue front door with attractive glazed paneling.
The fully enclosed rear garden provides a charming cottage style setting with a range of seating areas and a range of well established flowering plants.
From the patio doors to the veranda there is a circular paved terrace with a trickling water feature and a gravelled area beyond has stepping stones that wind down to a lawn and past an old flagstone terrace which winds down basking in the afternoon sun, perfect as an alternative seating spot.
Mimosa Cottage also has a driveway for one vehicle.
