Situated in the rural hamlet of East Pennard, Yew Tree House and The Studio Cottage, offer an almost unique opportunity to purchase two independent dwellings, held under the same title with the benefit of traditional outbuildings, gardens and paddock, totalling 1.10 acres. The properties will be offered with vacant possession upon completion, providing two very different dwellings affording a great degree of character and charm. Yew Tree House, typically offers spacious accommodation with high ceilings, a farmhouse kitchen and views from the first floor bedrooms. Studio Cottage provides a bedroom/snug on the ground floor, alongside a kitchen and bathroom. The signature room however, is the superb former studio (25’ x 15’), flooding the first floor with light, now utilised as an open plan living room. The outbuildings provide further potential for workshop/conversion, subject to any necessary consents, but also simply providing excellent storage capacity. Alongside the
cottage gardens, there is a secluded paddock, which used to host a grass tennis court at the top, enjoying far reaching views over the adjoining countryside.
The driveway sweeps up from the roadside, opening onto a large yard with ample parking and turning space. Here there are several wooden and block outbuildings.Formal gardens adjoin both Yew Tree House and the cottage. There is a large former kitchen garden. A path then extends from here to a secluded paddock. As you reach the paddock and continue up where it levels out (formerly a lawn tennis court), quite superb rural views can be enjoyed.
