DESCRIPTION Norley Cottage is a Grade II Listed period semi-detached house situated down a rural lane on the outskirts of the village of Tormarton with excellent access to road networks to the M4, Bristol and Bath. Surrounded by fields and farmland, the property enjoys an excellent 360-degree outlook over the countryside whilst being within walking distance to the village centre. Originally three alms-houses dating back to the 1870s then later split into two dwellings, the cottage is constructed of ashlar limestone beneath a welsh slate roof and boasts an array of charm and character both internally and externally with the front façade displaying the prominent ogee-headed mould windows. The current owners have lovingly restored and refurbished the cottage to a very high standard and thoughtfully retained much of its original Victorian gothic character.
The accommodation extends in all 1,688 sq.ft. arranged over two floors with the ground floor comprising three reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room around a central hallway. The dining room features a wood burning stove whilst the living room in particular displays the original stone fireplace with original grate and rear ogee-headed opening mirroring the windows. Off the kitchen there is a useful utility room with rear access. The kitchen was beautifully refitted just last year with double Belfast sink, integral dishwasher, fridge, oven and oil-fired modern Rayburn. Completing the ground floor, there is a downstairs WC off the hallway. Upstairs, there are four good-sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom enjoys rear views over the adjoining fields towards the village and features full-wall fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is fitted with a stylish roll-top bath.
Norley Cottage is set within a large 0.28 acre plot backing onto fields with the principal garden area arranged to the west of the cottage laid mostly to lawn bound by beech hedging with a delightful timber decked seating area. There is a further front lawn and rear patio immediately off the utility room. A good-sized driveway provides private parking for numerous vehicles accessed through a five-bar timber double gate. The double garage is an excellent addition to the cottage benefitting from a home office above. Internally, the garage has been split to create an extra secure store room.
