Springfield occupies a tranquil position at the head of aprivate lane where there are just a few privately owned historic residences. Weunderstand Springfield and the adjacent cottage date back 250-300 years andwere once the coach houses to St Margaret’s Priory, which were then convertedin the 1950’s into residential. My clients have resided at the cottage for 28years and during that time have sympathetically extended and renovated thistruly magical place. The accommodation is deceptively spacious and extremelyflexible oozing character throughout its 1600 sq ft. The two main reception roomsare generous in proportions, with the main sitting room having glorious highceilings and centring on an open fireplace. A staircase gives access to twodouble bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room. A third bedroom is situatedon the ground floor and is currently utilised as a study.A particular selling feature of the property are thegardens; they are truly idyllic extending to quarter of an acre and having beenlovingly landscaped by my clients who have created ‘rooms’ within the gardenwith various gorgeous seating areas to follow the sun. The beautiful gardenshave mature planting and a variety of trees with well stocked beds. Nestledaway is a substantial detached outhouse, believe to have been built in the 20’sas the original wash house to St Margaret’s Priory, now consisting of tworooms, one with a kitchenette and a shower room offering numerous conversionpossibilities.The property is approached via a long private driveway.Double gates and driveway to the side of the cottage leads down the garden tothe detached workshop/car port. The cottage also benefits from an additional twoparking spaces to the front.
