Nestled snugly within the countryside setting of the historic village of Great Ouseburn, discover the homely hamlet of Branton Green, and within it the quaint Georgian facade of Galtres Cottage.
Behind the delicious chocolate box cottage wrapping lies an updated 18th century country house. Come inside and let us make your acquaintance.
Follow the traditional old path up to the front door, past the established borders; a prelude to the immaculate homestead awaiting you beyond the laurel green traditional cottage front door.
Emerging into the entrance hall a handy cloakroom complete with WC is on hand across the way, while ahead the hall leads onto a roomy atrium from where the house opens out before you. Step through now to the right and discover your perfect family sitting room, cosy and homely, with an air of grandness courtesy of its imposing Georgian windows.
This room is light and spacious due to the light which pours in on two sides, an unusual feature for a cottage of this antiquity. The second of two receptions rooms, this cheerful chamber has space for a desk at the back, so why not use it as your work-from-home office? Its sunny aspect also makes it a fun family room for the children.
Follow us as we continue along to your welcoming wooden-floored dining room, a real hub of the home here at Galtres Cottage. Perfectly placed at the centre of the house, enjoy sociable evenings with family and friends gathered around the dining table - plenty of room for everyone here beneath the spot-lit ceiling - and regale your guests with laughter and fine food. This room blends traditional cottage chic with modern clean lines to ensure atmosphere and functionality come as one.
To the right lies your lounge, a lovely quiet room ideal for reading or chatting in and perfect for entertaining friends. As the autumn leaves begin to skitter by, it’s time to light the log burner, neatly housed beneath its rustic wooden mantel. A cool spring evening is enough encouragement to crackle a log or two in this atmospheric room. With views out to the glorious greenery at the front, take a break from typing to look up as the summer swallows start to line up on the telegraph wire outside, looking like musical notes on a score. Idyllic!
Of course the benefit of two reception rooms means you can enjoy family and formality, with the children enjoying one space for games and toys and the larger room retaining an adults-only atmosphere. The choice is yours…
Continue on with us into the kitchen breakfast room. Light and airy courtesy of the multiple windows, this room rings with the laughter of the convivial cook. Family will naturally congregate around the central island whilst you are busy preparing a delicious parmesan spring chicken with roasted asparagus, so enjoy the chatter and patter of footsteps whilst you fricassee away!
Double doors lead out from here onto your sunny south facing patio, perfect for enjoying morning coffee and croissants as the birds provide the chorus for your day. Bliss.
Returning to your ample hallway, follow the spindle staircase up to discover your sleeping quarters. Ahead of you lies the first of your three large double bedrooms. Again, so bright due to light pouring in from two sides, this bedroom looks out to the countryside at the front. Perfect for one of the children, or guests, neutral and tasteful décor creates a calm soothing vibe here.
Next door, discover an even larger bedroom, with abundant views out over the lush countryside beyond. Space here for all your storage needs and even a comfy chair by the window to sit and read a book. Who will take ownership of this breathtaking bedroom?
Finally, we uncover the jewel at the centre of this glorious Georgian crown, your bountiful master bedroom. After a long day, this room is your sanctuary. Spacious and yet inviting and cosy, recline on a sofa by your expansive windows and drink in the delights of the verdant view that unfolds. In the morning, spritz away the sleep from your eyes in your pristine ensuite before wrapping yourself up in a fluffy towel, plucked toasty warm off the heated towel rail.
For the rest of the family, a gleaming bathroom awaits, with separate shower and bath and beaming light showering in through the window. Space for everyone to sparkle here.
Time to explore your glorious garden, come with us. South facing and perfectly private, enjoy a spot of morning sunbathing on the patio. When the heat builds and you need a break, move down to the cool shade provided by the hedges and trees of your well established, low-maintenance garden.
Beyond, the countryside rolls on, so enjoy being at one with nature. In the summer stoke up the barbecue and invite your friends over to share in the feeling of serenity that the English sunshine brings.
