Property Description

A beautiful chocolate box cottage, reputed to be one of the oldest in the village, that has been fully renovated to an impeccable standard in recent years to create what is now a wonderfully atmospheric and character packed home. Ivy Cottage is a gorgeous stone build detached cottage that sits behind an attractive stone wall in the middle of Congresbury. Subject to a sympathetic restoration project by our current owners over the past decade, it is now a most appealing character home finished with the finest attention to detail. Approaching the property through an arched timber door that leads you into the stunning cottage garden, you get an immediate sense of how much love and care has gone into to this much cherished property. The beautiful flower packed garden with its abundance of mature trees (including an apple tree and magnolia tree), shrubs and borders, with a super al-fresco dining terrace and pretty stone pathways give a wonderful impression. Entering the cottage through the handy storm porch, you continue into a superb reception dining room, which features a handsome stone inglenook with cast iron woodburner, and attractive Oak staircase that rises to the first floor. All the woodwork, which includes the doors, skirting and architraves have been waxed to add practicality and a rich traditional feel and contrasts superbly with stylish natural stone floor. Off the dining/hallway a door leads through to a sweet home office or a room which would also make a perfect wine store. The sitting room is another immensely attractive room with a cosy and warm ambience. Taking centre stage is a cast iron woodburning stove that acts as a lovely focal point with its Oak overmantel, as well as a fitted bookcase. To the opposite side of the dining/hallway lies the kitchen, another traditional affair with cream shaker style units, complete with integrated appliances and modern range cooker (gas top, electric ovens), with a dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer built in. The kitchen units are complimented by an attractive stone effect splashback and the stylish natural stone floor that continues from the dining room, and uniforms the two rooms perfectly. Completing the ground floor accommodation are two luxurious family bathrooms, one with shower and the other with stylish roll top bath. On the first floor are the two double bedrooms (one with built in wardrobes), both packed with character and with light and airy vaulted ceilings and one with south facing windows. As previously mentioned, the south facing garden is an absolute delight and a has lovely sunny aspect. To the rear is a stone-faced tandem double car garage which benefits from a new roof and electric up and over door. There is also a separate power source that could potentially accommodate the installation of a charging point for an electric car if desired.


From the offices of Debbie Fortune Estate agents continue into the direction of the village passing The Plough public house on your left hand side. Opposite the shops you will find Ivy Cottage where you can park in front of the garage. Alternatively park on the shopping precinct car park and cross the road. ///gaps.depravity.saloons

Our vendor says... We have enjoyed living in this lovely cottage over the past 10 years, while renovating it to a high standard, designed to retain its character. It is a warm and comfortable home; we have many happy memories of our time spent here.

We have noticed... This beautiful character cottage is not only packed with features and charm but also has a stunning south facing garden and a garage, a rare commodity for a several centuries old family house. A truly delightful home.
