A charming detached period cottage situated amongst rural surroundings. Good size plot with attractive gardens, garage, carport and ample parking. The property also benefits from an attached paddock with seperate road access.

Sunnybank is a lovely double fronted period cottage which dates back to the early 1800's and has been extended and well-maintained by the current owner over the last 27 years. This charming property benefits from period features, along with all the modern comforts you would expect. Pleasantly situated on a plot which totals approx. 0.52 acres, made up of formal gardens, a vegetable plot, attached paddock, a smaller enclosed paddock and in addition there are kennels with a dry run all positioned within the heart of the hamlet of Fordgate.

The spacious and flexible accommodation is arranged over two floors and briefly comprises; a front door opens into a welcoming hallway with oak staircase rising to the first floor, two useful storage cupboards and doors to all ground floor rooms. To the front elevation are the living room and dining room. Both rooms are well-proportioned and the living room has an attractive fireplace with wood burner, whilst the dining room has French doors opening out onto the patio. To the rear of the ground floor is a well-fitted double aspect kitchen/diner with a good range of modern wall and base units, along with a built-in oven and hob. There is a wet room which was re-fitted in 2017 and an additional WC. A good size boot room with a range of storage cupboards and door leading out to the veranda, completes the ground floor.

On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms, all with views over the gardens and fields beyond. Bedroom 2 has the benefit on an ensuite with corner bath. A third bathroom and walk-in airing cupboard can be found at the end of the landing and completes the first floor.

Outside, the beautiful gardens are a particular feature of the property and the whole plot extends to just over half an acre. Immediately adjoining the property is a covered veranda which provides a perfect space for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. To the rear, the garden is laid to lawn and overlooks farmland. A range of timber outbuildings are ideal for storage and a summer house is a perfect place to enjoy the garden. The remainder of the garden is separated into individual areas, including a vegetable garden and flower beds with an abundance of shrubs and plants. The generous sized attached paddock which is the ideal space for a pony paddock or small holding can be entered through double gates and is surrounded by a variety of mature trees including a lovely Willow. The paddock could also have many further uses subject to any necessary planning permission.

Sunnybank offers ample parking on a gravel driveway and there is an attached garage with power and light, plus a double carport.

An early viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate this charming village home and sizeable plot.
