Alder Cottage and its neighbour, Oak Cottage, have been created within the walls of the original farm buildings that were already located here. We’ve retained the building’s external stonework, quirky layout and some original beams and added feature windows, including numerous overhead Velux windows. Alder Cottage has c. 2,118 sq. ft. of accommodation and is a completely unique property that strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern. It’s entered via its landscaped garden, with a footpath and steps providing access from the separate garage and driveway.
From the front door, the entrance hall leads directly to the expansive, open plan living area that forms the heart of the home and encompasses an island kitchen and dining area, with double doors leading to a separate living room. The star of the kitchen is the desirable La CornuFé 1908 stove by French heritage brand La Cornue, in its signature Provence Blue shade with chrome trims. The kitchen can be personalised with quartz work surfaces, door fronts, handles and tiling to match. There is also a separate TV room/play room and combined WC and utility on the ground floor, as well as a large storage area that’s accessible via the entrance hall. Double doors open onto the garden from the living room. The garden has been paved and landscaped to create a beautiful courtyard. Attractive tiered planting includes scented and edible herbs and fruits, while traditional dry stone wall boundaries complement Alder Cottage’s natural stone exteriors. Original features have been retained that add character and nod to the building’s history, including the barn-style archway at the rear of the cottage that has been glazed to create a stunning feature window, and the natural wooden beams in the living room.
Upstairs the master suite makes the most of the building’s original layout, with an enviable walk-in wardrobe/dressing room that leads from the bedroom to the en suite shower room. Part of another original feature, the glazed archway which was once the building’s entrance, also graces another of the bedrooms. In total there are two double and two single bedrooms and a family bathroom.
