This charming, part thatched and tiled cottage is believed to date back to 1890 and has cob walls, with 1980s extensions of rendered and colour-washed cavity construction. There is oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazing, and the thatched was replaced in 2012, since when the property has been refurbished and modernised. The majority of the ground floor has solid oak floors, and an electrical inspection was carried out in May 2019.
The deceptively spacious, flexible accommodation includes a gabled entrance porch, a reception hall and a charming, dual aspect sitting room (with high vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and A-frames and 3 deep window sills). There is an attractive, modern kitchen/dining/utility room with an excellent range of units, Belfast sink, solid oak worktops, space for electric range cooker (available by separate negotiation), extractor hood, space for upright fridge-freezer, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, space for tumble dryer, Grant oil fired boiler and airing cupboard housing a pressurised hot water cylinder. The long hallway has French doors to the garden. Also on the ground floor are 2 dual aspect bedrooms, one of which has a feature panelled wall, a beamed ceiling and an under stairs cupboard, and a modern bathroom with bath (with shower and screen above), wash basin and WC. From the reception hall an oak staircase leads to the first floor. The dual aspect master bedroom has an excellent range of built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room with a shower, wash basin and WC.
Hazelwood has off road parking for at least 4 vehicles. The raised front garden has a picket fence boundary and is arranged as a cottage garden, well stocked with shrubs. A side gate leads to the side and rear gardens. The kitchen garden has raised beds, exterior water tap, oil storage tank, and a southerly facing raised sun deck with outstanding country views. There is also a timber home office with lighting and power points. A private gravelled courtyard provides a pleasant seating area.
