If you appreciate the timeless charms of a Grade II cottage, you will feel at home whether you step through the front door or via the beautiful back garden. In fact you may already have fallen in love at first sight. Let your senses be gratified as you may feel this house gently enveloping you through the cosy interior. The kitchen is a long room full of character connecting what would have been the front entrance and one of the current access to the rear garden. Both dining room and living room make dual use of the central chimney by offering a log burner on one side and a fireplace on the other. The original exposed beams throughout do contribute to the warm feeling.
The quaint and quintessential staircase is narrow and steep but it has kept the present occupants young and fit despite the many happy years looking after The Maltings House. Yours efforts will be well rewarded as you will discover a very spacious Landing and two large double bedrooms. Knowing that you live in an historical building is a great feeling and this home has been very much loved and cared for.
Situated on a corner plot, this charming Period Cottage is part of a group of Grade listed buildings: The Chesnuts, Clock House, Clock House Cottage, Maltings, No 2 Maltings Cottages St Andrews and The Six Bells Public House form a group. (The Chesnuts is a building of local interest). The south facing garden is a little heaven maintained with love and pride over the years, nicely sheltered from the side road but adjacent to the equally beautiful “Clock House” garden. You will find a greenhouse and a double garage. You will discover plenty of resting spots to admire the various fruit trees, shrubs and flowers while listening to the many birds singing. Your eyes will also be drawn back to the rear facade of the Maltings house and will probably make you wonder of its past history.
