Occupying a peaceful position on Lower Kingsdown Road, with the most breath-takingly beautiful views over the Bybrook Valley and countryside beyond, Vine Cottage is an exquisite three-bedroom characterful home that is presented to an incredibly high standard, has the most magnificent and magical large garden with sublime views, and an unusual benefit of this cottage is that it has the welcome addition of a spacious garage.
As you arrive on Lower Kingsdown Road and park on-street in front of the garage, a path on the right-hand side leads you down to the gorgeous garden and to Vine Cottage itself.
Internally, the accommodation is arranged over three floors.
You are greeted straight into the conservatory which is where the current owners spend much of their time, enjoying the views overlooking the garden and scenery beyond. From here, it then leads through to the spacious sitting/dining room that boasts a delightful fireplace which houses a working wood burning stove, and the stylish modern kitchen is at the back of the home.
On the first floor you have the master bedroom that offers fitted wardrobe space and a charming window seat to take in the glorious view, bedroom three, and the smart family bathroom that has both a bath and a separate shower cubicle.
On the final floor, is the wonderfully light and airy bedroom two which has a dual aspect, fitted storage space, and it makes for a wonderful guest room.
Outside, the west-facing garden is the pièce de résistance and is perfect for those who have green fingers! It has been completely, lovingly transformed over the years by the current owners and has been cleverly designed in such a way that each section of garden is like a separate outdoor room. At the top of the garden there is a level section of striped lawn that is surrounded by blossoming borders of colourful plants and at this elevation, the view over the Bybrook Valley is superb. Various pathways then wind down to the rest of the garden - there are wildflower borders for wildlife, raised beds for growing fruit and veg, rockeries, and numerous places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. There is also a summerhouse with decking to watch the sunsets in the evenings, a large workshop with windows looking out over the landscape, and the single garage is also great for external storage. This garden simply must be viewed to appreciate its uniqueness and beauty.
The property benefits from gas central heating, mains drainage, and it is Council Tax Band B and EPC rating D. There is also electric under floor heating in the conservatory.
