Hares Cottage is a well-presented family home offering light-filled flexible accommodation. The amenities of modern living are cleverly combined with retained character features, including an 1869 datestone, leaded glazing and some exposed beams. Shottenden is a sought after location being quiet and peaceful with excellent road and rail networks nearby.
The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall and briefly comprises a generous dual aspect sitting room with part-vaulted ceiling, wooden floor and French doors to the garden, a spacious dual aspect reception with feature fireplace with woodburning stove and French doors to the garden. There is also a well-proportioned study and a large front aspect dining room with exposed brick wall and feature chequerboard tiled floor. The dining room opens into the kitchen with a range of wall and floor units and modern integrated appliances.
On the first floor the property offers a spacious front aspect master bedroom with a dressing area and large en suite shower room and an additional bedroom with its own dressing room. There are two further well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate walk-in shower.
There is space and potential to create a self-contained annexe where the sitting room is currently located, subject to any necessary consents.
The property is approached over a private driveway giving access to the two integral garages, bordered by a well-maintained front garden with areas of level lawn and feature topiary.
The remaining gardens to the side and rear of the property are laid mainly to level lawn with mature shrubs, a garden pond and a paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
From all angles the garden enjoys far-reaching views over neighbouring countryside.
