Property Description

The Property

1 Church Lane is a charming, ex-Sandringham Estate house, dating back to c. 1910.  The red brick,semi-detached cottage, looks out across the rolling countryside beyond and is situated on a very quiet back lane in the popular village of Sedgeford.  The pretty village church is opposite with easy access to public footpaths to walk.

The cottage retains lots of original period features, including fire places and the charming staircase hidden behind a door in the dining room.  Downstairs there is a sitting room to the front of the cottage with an open fire, dining room with a wood burning stove and a large kitchen and downstairs wet room.  The property was extended around 13 years ago to create the current kitchen and wet room.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms arranged off a small landing.  The master bedroom looks out to the rear of the cottage and has a pretty feature fireplace and the other two bedrooms look out to the front; one is a single bedroom and the other a double.

1 Church Lane has been a much loved family home for in excess of 20 years and there is great scope to add your own stamp to the cottage and to make some cosmetic improvements.


Church Lane is a very quiet lane tucked away, well back from the main road that runs through the village.  The cottage is one of a pair of stand alone semi-detached cottages, opposite the entrance to the pretty churchyard.

The large garden is to the side of the cottage and wraps around to the rear.  It is a pretty garden with lovely views out to the countryside, with a patio next to the back door with plenty of space for outside dining in the warmer months.

The current owners park opposite the cottage on a strip of common land off the road.  There is scope though to create a parking area in the front of the garden if desired.
