Keepers Cottage occupies an enviable position in this quiet private road, its origins date back to the mid 19th century when it was a Gamekeepers Cottage. It was purchased by the current owners nearly 30 years ago who undertook a major programme of restoration and extension, adding a new two storey extension in keeping with the original, it was also completely re roofed and tailor made double glazed windows were fitted throughout. The result is a fine modern home suited to a growing family.

The property is approached by a neat gravel driveway which opens out to provide a large area for parking in front of the house, further parking to the rear is available in a purpose built garage block. From the main entrance door is access to a spacious reception hall with feature fireplace, a delightful sitting room is located to one side with a brick open fireplace and double aspect windows. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room with medium Oak units and concealed lighting over, gas fired AGA oven in a brick surround, separate electric combination oven, dishwasher, larder fridge and a polished terracotta tiled floor. The breakfast area can seat 10 people and has access on to the front garden. Double doors leads to an attractive, glazed internal walkway which links to the dining room, study and main drawing room, the latter has a feature brick fireplace and triple aspect windows with views over gardens. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and cloakroom.
On the first floor is a master bedroom suite with walk in dressing room and large en suite bathroom, additional eaves storage and double wardrobe.
