A charming Grade II Listed family home in the heart of the desirable village of Upper Basildon. Major renovations have taken place with only the final touches now required.
Tree Cottage is a superb timber framed Grade II listed family house, of late 17th Century origins. Many of the attractive beamed features are visible throughout the property including an original bread oven in the corner of the north gable. The current owners have recently extended and renovated the property to create a fantastic, modern, open plan spacious kitchen/diner with seating area, family/tv room, a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and an extra guest bedroom. The new extension benefits from a bank of large windows including two sets of french doors which allows the light to flood into the house. The french doors open up onto a terrace which overlooks the garden. As you enter Tree Cottage via the front door you step into the Music Room which leads onto the Drawing Room through to the Kitchen/Dining Room and into the Family Room. A study, set off the Kitchen and Music room features an original fireplace and has access back into the kitchen. By the back door adjacent to the kitchen, there is a fully fitted versatile utility room accessible from the Kitchen and along with a downstairs WC finishing off the downstairs accommodation. On the first floor there is the new bright south facing master bedroom with a potential ensuite bathroom and four further bedrooms down the hall and a large family bathroom including shower and bath.
The cottage is set at the front of the property facing south east onto the street. It is surrrouded by a large garden to the back and both sides of the house. The garden is mainly laid to lawn but has a beautiful cluster of trees at the bottom of the garden giving the property a real sense of privacy. The cottage has off street parking with planning permission for a garage. There are two storage sheds at the end of the garden and a detached artist’s studio. The weatherboarded stand alone studio was built in the 1930s for the artist Gilbert Spencer with floor to ceiling windows facing south and west.
