The Property: Flackley Ash Cottage is an individual detached residence understood to have been extensively renovated in the 1970s presenting brick and weather-boarded elevations set with replacement UPVC, double glazed windows set beneath a pitched and hipped tiled roof.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors with features including the sitting room with inglenook fireplace housing woodburning stove and double aspect to front and rear.

Arranged over the first floor landing are three bedrooms incorporating two double rooms and one single room. Bedroom one has fitted wardrobes, bedroom two has built in wardrobes and enjoys fine countryside views. The bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite.
Scope exists to extend the existing accommodation. We understand that permission was granted for a two storey extension which has subsequently lapsed.
Gardens and Grounds: Flackley Ash Cottage is approached over the farm driveway over which, we are informed by the seller, the cottage enjoys a right of way, with a responsibility of one third of contributions for maintenance (to be verified). A concrete driveway provides parking for three cars leading up to an attached single garage fitted with double wooden doors, power and light.
Lawned gardens run predominantly to two sides incorporating heated, above ground swimming pool by Homewood Leisure with surrounding decked area, enjoying an elevated position with fine views and a children’s timber swing and slide. Beyond the fenced garden is a timber outbuilding, overall 9.50m x 9.20m, set predominantly on a concrete base incorporating loose box, tack room and hay and wood store areas. The paddocks continue to run out, undulating, with an area of mixed broadleaf woodland. The whole adjoins farmland and in all extends to approximately 6 acres.
