Secretly tucked away behind a private gravelled driveway just off Ridley Lane in a pretty semi-rural hamlet of Mawdesley, Godwit Cottage is a truly delightful three bedroom character home with charming secret garden and detached garden room / artist studio to rear.

The property is hidden from the road making a closer inspection absolutely essential and reveals a beautiful cottage interior that has been recently refurbished throughout to an incredibly high standard perfectly blending a lovely contemporary finish with an abundance of period character features.

The comfortable and spacious layout affords in excess of 1400 SQ.FT of tastefully appointed living accommodation making it much larger than most modern four bedroom detached houses with an additional 144 SQ.FT in the artist studio. This detached building has a rendered finish and has been built to a high standard out of bricks with insulated pitch tiled roof. Named Morland House this building is utterly charming and suitable for any number of purposes notably it makes a delightful summer house or even a cosy guest bedroom that includes its own wood burning stove.

Warmed by gas central heating with the added benefit of low maintenance upvc double glazing this is a practical, well laid out home that comprises of a reception porch that opens into a really impressive large, comfortable lounge with dining area. Beamed ceilings and an open fire with wood burner make striking focal points. A second reception located directly off the kitchen features another fireplace with a cosy wood burning stove making this room perfect as a snug. The extended and recently upgraded kitchen is also a nice space with bespoke fitted cupboards, a Velux roof light that fills the space with light plus there is a very useful utility room and rear porch perfect for storing your coats and shoes. The upper floor is home to three really nice bedrooms with a lovely, light master bedroom suite with dual aspect windows and its own en-suite shower room. A large family bathroom with feature freestanding bath tub and separate shower cubical serves the need of the other bedrooms. Both bathrooms have been updated recently with the whole house freshly decorated and benefiting from rustic oak ledged internal doors and new high quality flooring throughout.

The rear garden is another real highlight, being well kept, private and enclosed with the added benefit of the studio.

Mawdesley Village is a lovely place to live, rural yet accessible, there are first class primary schools, local village shops, a good selection of country pubs, farm shops and the excellent Cedar Farm craft village & tea rooms.
