In the beautiful black and white borough of Pembridge
The main entrance into the cottage (via a couple of steps) is into a large sitting room. Furnished in light and airy colours, there are plenty of armchairs and a sofa together with a dining table and chairs. There is a digital TV and internet access. Leaflets and an information booklet is provided, as well as some reference books and maps.
The house has gas central heating but there is also a wood burner in the sitting room (a basket of logs is supplied) to sit in front of on those not so balmy days!
Up one small step is a hand-made bespoke kitchen, which is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, double oven electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. It also has lots of lovely French cookware and many other utensils for the keen cook.
Through the kitchen and down a couple of steps, is a lovely sunny conservatory overlooking the garden. It has a very useful large cupboard for coats and boots. There is also a small table for a tête-à-tête breakfast, as well as a sofa and other chairs.
A door from the conservatory leads out into the garden which has been designed to be useful as well as pretty. Within the garden is an area with a table and chairs for outdoor dining, as well as a range of relaxing chairs to enable you to sit in the sunshine. A renovated summerhouse means that even in damp weather visitors can enjoy the open air.
Also, outside in a little alleyway, between the parking and the conservatory, is a small shelter – ideal for storing bicycles.
From the sitting room, original stairs (which are therefore a bit wonky) lead up to a large landing. Here you will find a bookshelf filled with novels and games, as well as a desk. Internet is provided (if unfortunately, you need to do some work) together with a large comfy armchair for peace and quiet!
Off the landing is a fully renovated bathroom with a bath and shower, as well as plenty of shelving to store your belongings. Towels are provided.
The double bedroom is warm and cosy and has a large chest of drawers and two bedsides, as a well as a digital TV. (The wardrobe for this room is on the landing).
The twin room (accessed through a low door) is light, airy and spacious. It has a large wardrobe with a huge supply of hangers as well as small chest of drawers and a bedside table. There is also a comfy sofa and a digital TV in this room.
Due to the historic nature of the house there are some uneven floors and steps. It is consequently unsuitable for the infirm.
Three steps lead up to the front door. A gate has been installed to give added protection for pets and children from the road outside.
A step leads into the kitchen from the sitting room and there are 3 steps down from the kitchen into the conservatory.
The stairs are very old and consequently a little uneven but there are banisters supplied on both sides. Upstairs there is a low beam in the landing area.
The bedroom door into the twin room is very low.
All rooms have good ceiling heights.
Outside there are steps up to the dining space in the garden. These are wide and relatively shallow.
The property is non-smoking.
