Recently modernized to a very high standard, May Cottage is located on the edge of the popular village of Barton St. David. It is a detached Victorian house with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and is set in approx quarter of an acre.
May Cottage has been recently renovated to a high standard throughout with some very attractive features including shutters on the windows, oak flooring, wood burner, french doors to the garden, and two good bathrooms, one with a free standing bath and large walk in shower.
On the ground floor, there is a snug room with a modern wood burner set into the chimney stack and the sitting room is generously proportioned with direct access to the garden via two sets of double doors. The kitchen offers modern units, attractive wooden worktops, an ‘island’ and a charming timber ‘stable door’. The open plan kitchen, dining and snug room give the house a feeling of spaciousness and light. There is also a generously sized and well fitted boot/utility room, a walk in larder and cloakroom.
On the first floor there is a very attractive galleried landing with views over the lawns behind the house and to the fields beyond. There are four good sized double bedrooms all with great views, one with en suite bathroom plus another good sized family bathroom.
Outside at the front of the property there is a large gravelled driveway with space for plenty of cars. To the rear of the property is a good sized garden with a rose bed, flower beds, large area of lawn and vegetable area, plus a pretty terrace with pergola.
There is a large outbuilding that is currently used for storage but could potentially be converted into a very good office/ studio.
