Kentmere Cottage is a unique and substantial family home extending to an impressive 2300 sqft offering annex potential and an innovative stylish interior. Having been improved and updated by the current owner the property affords versatile and flexible living accommodation which can be adapted to suit a wide variety of needs. Vaulted ceilings, elegant bathroom suites and careful consideration to clever storage space make this an interesting home that can accommodate the largest of families, dual occupancy or possible income potential through sub letting. Discreetly tucked away at the end of a private lane within the popular village of West Wellow this lovely home occupies a large plot of over ¼ acre and offers scope to become two separate dwellings having been granted planning consent to do so.


The front door to the principal residence opens into an entrance hall that benefits from a wealth of recessed storage. Tiled flooring with underfloor heating flows into the spacious kitchen living room which enjoys a triple aspect and is light and bright with a host of stylish eye and base level kitchen cabinets with a combination of granite and wood worksurfaces. A stainless steel 1 ½ bowl sink and drainer benefits from ample workspace to each side. Integrated appliances include a four ring gas hob with extractor hood and built in double oven. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs and clever use of storage. A utility room hosts a drying area, storage, plumbing for appliances and airing space as well as a small sink. The inner hallway is impressive and sizeable enjoying a vaulted landing with skylights and exposed beams affording much natural light and ample storage. Oak flooring flows into a useful study and double doors open into the elegant sitting room which hosts twin double doors to the garden and a lovely triple aspect. Steps from the hallway lead to the bathroom which comprises a contemporary white suite with sunken bath and stylish glass brick screening. Further doors open into to the possible self contained area where there is a family room, second kitchen and two further bedrooms.

The vaulted landing is a real feature of the home and serves access to four bedrooms. The master bedroom has been cleverly arranged and once again is vaulted with exposed beams and skylights and oak flooring. The use of storage is excellent and discreet with concealed drawers and cupboard space as well as ample wardrobes and shelving. Steps lead to an ensuite bathroom that comprises a modern white suite and sunken bath with shower over. Bedroom four is currently utilised as a study and bedroom with built in storage, cupboards and desk space. Bedrooms two and three are twin rooms, both with eaves storage space.


A coach house in and out driveway provides a delightful approach to the house as well as parking and turning areas. There is a high degree of privacy and seclusion afforded via mature hedgerow and a host of specimen shrubs. There is a feature lawn studded with trees and shrubs as well as a useful timber store. The gravel driveway extends to the side of the house culminating in the garage with metal up and over door. A flagstone pathway with side gate leads to the well maintained rear garden which is predominantly lawned with feature flower and shrub borders. Its southerly facing aspect is best taken advantage from the flagstone patio adjacent to the sitting room and small deck adjoining. There is a productive vegetable plot with greenhouse and steps lead to a shingled area including a well constructed barn and workshop.
