Flexible family living are the bywords for this unique property, which has been substantially extended and updated to create the current fantastic living accommodation.
Bolton Fold Cottage, in Alston Lane, boasts imposing floor-to-ceiling bay windows to the front, with Iroko hardwood windows throughout and many other attractive features – all set within a beautiful lawned garden area at the back with a raised stone lined pond, decked areas, greenhouse, a vegetable patch and established espaliered fruit trees.
There is also ample parking for several vehicles with gated access to a gravelled driveway to the side of the property.
The cottage is entered through a tiled vestibule to the hallway, where the staircase to the first floor is fitted with an oak bookcase underneath.
Then there is a second kitchen/utility room, five reception rooms (including those for music and games), an open plan and high quality fitted kitchen and rear porch.
On the first floor the galleried landing is currently used as an office, there is an inner landing, four double bedrooms, a shower room and a master suite with dressing area and five piece en suite facilities. The lounge has a bay window looking out to the front and the multi fuel stove in this room is double-sided to the sitting room, where the bay window also has a front aspect. The wood floored dining room’s bay window again looks to the front and from here the feature oak staircase goes up to the first floor.
The kitchen is a beautiful, well thought out modern area with wall and base units and granite worktops. There are pull-out larder
cupboards, plus space for an American-style fridge freezer and range cooker. The sink unit has a mixer tap and the central island with breakfast bar is set on tiled flooring.
On the first floor, the galleried landing-cum-study’s double glazed bay window has views across the countryside and there is access to a boarded loft via a pull-down ladder. The main bedroom of the four is the master suite with open views to the front of the cottage, a very useful dressing area and a five piece en suite bathroom with its bath having a mixer tap over, a low level WC, wash hand basin set on a hand carved base, a bidet and double shower cubicle, plus a wall-mounted heated towel rail and feature glass panelling.
