Thought to date from the 1950's, and originally part of the adjacent Hankerton Priory, Priory Cottage is believed to have been the gardeners cottage. It has since been substantially extended and now provides excellent family accommodation set in a mature garden extending to about a quarter of an acre. Over the last 14 years, the current owners have remodelled the accommodation with new internal doors, including oak double doors in a number of areas, installed wardrobes and recently refitted the family bathroom and en suite shower. The previous conservatory has been upgraded to a garden room and there is potential to build a garage or car barn on the drive, which provides ample parking. The plot extends to 0.25 of an acre.
The oak front door leads into a porch with windows either side. A further door leads into the hall which has an under stair cupboard and a second corner cupboard housing the consumer unit and electricity meter. On the right is the dual aspect sitting room which has a fireplace with a log burning stove and built-in cupboards and shelves either side. Double doors lead to the garden room at the rear, which has access to the garden and the the large dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room. this has a range of units including a Rangemaster cooker and an island/breakfast bar. There are double doors onto the side patio and further double doors leading to the snug. This has a fireplace with cupboards and shelves either side plus double doors into the conservatory. Off the kitchen is a utility room with the oil boiler and a cloakroom off. On the first floor is an L shaped landing with the airing cupboard housing the pressurised hot water cylinder. There is an access hatch to the main loft which is boarded with a ladder and light. There is a secondary hatch to the newer roof space as well. The dual aspect master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and an newly refitted en suite shower. The family bathroom has a free standing bath and a large shower enclosure. There are four further bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, one of which is dual aspect and currently used as a home office.
A five bar gate leads to a gravelled drive with ample parking. Mature hedges enclosed the garden affording excellent privacy. Adjoining the house is an L shaped slate terrace. The gardens are laid to lawn, with well stocked borders, numerous trees, vegetable beds and a greenhouse. There is a large garden shed, a log store and the screened oil tank.
Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. The oil boiler in the utility room supplies central heating and hot water. Council Tax Band E - £2,565.52 payable for 2023/24. EPC rating Band E - 52.
