Is this your dream home? A converted  shippon that has been loved and cared for by the current vendors...a high specification finish has been achieved throughout with many wonderful period features. You are about to fall head over heels for this one!

Take A 'Pinch Me' Moment

As you drive along Bolton Road, passing the green rolling fields, note Higher Close Cottage is set back tucked away behind mature trees and conifers, timber gates open to welcome you in and catch the first glimpse of your grounds. The moment the gates close behind, you lock away the world and find yourself in your very own sanctuary...

The large sweeping drive allows the whole family to park with ease or open up the garage to allow the safe parking of your car for the night. Step out and head towards the front door beckoning you in, turn your key, you’ve arrived home.

Step Inside

Step inside the entrance vestibule, pop your shoes and coat off, this home is nudging you to relax. 

Before entering the hallway you'll discover a door to your right leading to the sitting room, fabulous bi-folding doors lead out to one of the flagged patio areas, perfect to let a cool breeze in through those warm summer months!

Back through the vestibule and take the door to the welcoming entrance hallway, you'll notice the engineered oak flooring underfoot which runs through a number of rooms along with cosy carpets. 

The first door ahead greets you into the heart of your home. The open plan kitchen-diner-family room with underfloor heating running under the tiles in the kitchen. 

The traditional country style dove grey kitchen includes built in Neff double oven with a warming plate below, beautiful grey Quartz worktops with a built in sink unit. Integrated tall fridge and a dishwasher for the clean up afterwards keeping this pristine kitchen clean. Take a seat at your breakfast island with the family…enjoy your coffee together before you go your separate ways for the day. Your hob is built into the island with a contemporary ceiling extractor above, this open plan space is the perfect spot to entertain family and friends…such a sociable space! Two sets of French doors give access to the rear garden patio and will bring the outside in during those summer months. A door from the kitchen leads to a spacious utility room, this of course is in keeping with the kitchen decor with it's matching cabinetry and is sure to keep the family home neat and tidy. Very handy if you have just taken advantage of a long dog walk in the surrounding countryside and your pooch needs a quick rinse off! Tuck your coats and shoes away in the cloak cupboard, appliance storage, and plumbing for your washer and dryer. A personal door from the utility gives access to the double garage. Opposite the utility room a door leads to a study with fitted book shelves and window to the front.

From the kitchen be drawn towards the flickering log burning stove of the lounge set in a wonderful stone fireplace…imagine enjoying your favourite tipple watching the fire roaring away…bliss! Two large sets of windows provide stunning views over the immaculate gardens and open countryside.

Two further double rooms with those scenic views give five fantastic bedrooms. Each room harmonises with the next, in both its decor and layout throughout. For added peace and quiet all exterior windows benefit from double glazing, perfect for those stormy winter months. A beautiful family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.
