White Cottage, 122 Tiddington Road, is a pretty, detached family home with beautifully stocked gardens. Built in 1953, the property offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors and offers a buyer an opportunity to put their own stamp on the property.
The front door opens into a welcoming entrance hallway with tiled flooring, staircase rising to the first floor and a guest cloakroom. The dining room is open to the hallway and a perfect entertaining space. The drawing room has a front aspect, windows to two sides, wooden flooring, a Baxi fireplace and double doors open into a further reception room. The ground floor accommodation flows very well and is ideal for family living.
At the rear of the property, a large open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room has tiled flooring and lovely views over the garden, with sliding doors opening on to the garden. There is space for a large dining table, and a separate seating area focuses around the gas burner. Located off the kitchen is a large utility with pantry off and back door to the garden. The tandem garage can be accessed from the utility, offering plenty of space for a workshop area and a car, plus an inspection pit.
Upstairs, the principal bedroom is generous in size with a front-to-back aspect, built-in cupboards and a good-sized en suite shower room with dual basins and a large walk-in shower. Bedroom two is bright and spacious with a rear aspect and walk-in wardrobe. There are two further double bedrooms with built-in storage and a family bathroom. A separate WC is located next to the family bathroom.
Outside, the gardens are a particularly special feature of the property. Special care and attention have gone into the design, planting and upkeep of the gardens. The house sits set back from the road behind a manicured foregarden, and there is plenty of parking on the gravelled driveway in front of the house. The rear garden is south-easterly facing and a great size, featuring a summer house, separate shed and a greenhouse. A gravel pathway leads through the garden and lawned areas through an array of established trees and well-stocked beds. A large terrace stretches the width of the house, and there is gated access around the side of the property.
