Littlegate Cottage is a beautiful two bedroom home on the edge of the village of Askett. Dating back to 1888 it has been extensively and sensitively renovated retaining many original features including exposed beams throughout and taking advantage of modern additions such as double glazed replacement windows to the front of the property.

This beautiful home provides ample accommodation arranged over two floors. The property is entered through a glazed porch into the dining room which leads through an opening into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of solid oak units, integrated appliances including a fridge and space for a range style gas cooker as well as a walk in pantry with space for a freezer. Both the kitchen and dining room have Fired Earth Floor tiles and wall tiles in the kitchen. The large living room boasts beautiful exposed beams as well as an Inglenook fireplace with an open log burning fire and a solid oak floor. There is a useful additional reception room which could be used as a study, snug, or even an additional ground floor bedroom.

The garden is accessed via a stable door through an inner lobby from the dining room. There is also access to the utility room which has plumbing for two washing machines and a vented tumble dryer as well as a downstairs WC. The utility also has underfloor heating.

The first floor has two large double bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams as well as solid wooden floors and with views of the front garden. There is a bathroom with free standing roll top bath with shower fitting. The bathroom has been finished to a very high standard and is part tiled with Fired Earth wall tiles whilst still retaining the original wall beams.

The property is entered at the front through a gated access from the road. There is ample parking for several cars on the gravelled driveway as well as a front lawn and a cobbled pathway from a separate gate leading to the front door. There is access to the private rear garden at the side of the house as well as to a large double garage outbuilding. The rear garden is fully enclosed on all sides by fencing and mature hedging and has an area laid to lawn, mature shrubs and a decked seating area as well as a useful garden shed. There is an additional patio area which can be accessed from the snug as well as a sunny area at the bottom of the garden for further seating.
