Stylish country cottage
The Retreat has been reinvented from rustic house into a pretty, heritage-hued oasis with all the cottage trimmings you could dream of - roaring fire, exposed beams, cottage garden with views of open countryside. This is a home that lives up to its name.
The cottage has a bucolic feel: it’s nestled along a quiet country lane in the lovely village of Snitterfield. Park the car and wander down the gravel path to the picture perfect house. The moment you are inside you relax. There is a calmness and warmth that makes you want to snuggle on a big squidgy armchair in front of the log burner.
Where the large sitting room has the country vibe the kitchen is bang up to date - it’s like walking from House & Garden magazine into the pages of Living Ect. The kitchen was installed a few years ago and is immaculate. There is a big dining space and a modern cooking area that has been cleverly designed to make the most of every inch. You will be happy to do the washing up as the view out to the back garden is gorgeous (although there is a dishwasher!)
The garden was landscaped to create three areas - the patio off the kitchen door is perfect for a Sunday cup of tea or a glass of something colder in the summer. There is plenty of space for a table and outdoor sofas. The lawned area is great for children to run about on or dogs to relax under a tree. At the bottom of the garden is where the magic always happens and it is certainly the case at The Retreat. A modern garden room has been installed with a patio at the front, bifold doors opening into a large space with a window looking out to stunning views. Will it be a studio, home office, gym or just somewhere to retreat to after a long day?
