Wisteria cottage is an exceptionally pretty cottage with a wealth of period features. Parts of the cottage date back to the 16th century and it has had several additions and refurbishments over the years including a modern kitchen, family bathroom and en-suite shower room, resulting in a very characterful cottage that is suitable for modern living.
The period features include flagstone floors, an impressive inglenook fireplace, a solid oak stable door into the garden, exposed stone walls, original windows with restored shutters, traditional spiral staircase, Victorian fireplace, and window seats.
The stylish open plan kitchen/dining room comprises a range of wall and base units with wooden tops, a Belfast sink and the worktop extends around to provide a useful breakfast bar area and works to separate the kitchen from the dining area which has exposed stone walls and bi-folding doors into the garden.
On the first floor there are three good size double bedrooms and a spacious landing. The master bedroom has an en-suite with shower, loo, sink and wooden flooring. The family bathroom is situated on the ground floor and includes a full length bath, double shower and is completely tiled.
The house is side-on to the road and has an off road parking area which leads towards the property with the main area of the garden tucked away behind a hedge. It is mainly laid to lawn with borders surrounding and is enclosed by timber fencing and stone walls. The bifold doors in the kitchen lead to a very private terraced area.
Wisteria Cottage is situated in the centre of the village of Butleigh which is surrounded by rural countryside, farmland and wooded hills. This popular village has a thriving shop and post office, an excellent pub, primary school and nursery and a very active cricket club.
