Dipton Mill Cottage is a delightful stone built cottage which is situated in an elevated riverside setting. The property has been significantly extended from the original house over the years and is now a substantial and attractive home, combining both contemporary and period features throughout.
The front door leads into the main entrance vestibule, with boiler cupboard and door leading through to the flagged reception hall; a light space with French doors to the outside, stairs to the first floor, understairs WC and double doors into the drawing room. The charming drawing room has a delightful inglenook fireplace and views over the garden.
The reception hall also provides access to the stunning kitchen, which is fitted with a combination of maple and metal fronted units with granite worktops, breakfast bar, central island, AGA, electric oven and hob, space for an American style fridge freezer and underfloor heating throughout. The kitchen has an open plan aspect through to the garden room and dining areas, both of which provide a great space for entertaining. The open plan design continues through with a snug located off the kitchen offering a comfortable area to sit with double doors to the courtyard at the front of the property and a wood burning stove. The rear hall gives access to the utility room with a range of units, sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. The rear hall, with storage cupboards, has external access to the gardens, parking area and is used as the main entrance by the current owners.
Stairs from the reception hall lead to the first floor landing and bedroom accommodation. The master bedroom suite enjoys dual aspect over the gardens, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with storage, walk in shower, wash-hand basin and WC. The guest bedroom is a charming room, also benefiting from fitted wardrobes, with beamed ceiling and en-suite shower room comprising shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. Four further bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes, complete the bedroom accommodation along with a family bathroom comprising bath, shower, wash-hand basin and WC. The bathroom and en-suites all benefit from underfloor heating.
Dipton Mill Cottage is approached by a private timber-gated driveway, which leads to the detached
double-plus garage. The garage is currently configured with a workshop space and temperature controlled wine store on the ground floor. To first floor, the garage comprises a studio living area with separate kitchen/utility room and shower room with WC; all of which would lend itself to annex accommodation.
The cottage is set within extensive private grounds. Tiered lawns and a raised stone-flagged terrace which surrounds the property on two sides give a variety of areas to sit and entertain. The grounds are nestled in surrounding woodland to the North and West and include the picturesque West Dipton Burn.
