Here is our top pick for the week:

Four-bedroom detached and renovated cottage with a walled garden, in Overleigh, Street, offered for sale by Holland and Odam.

This beautifully-presented detached cottage with walled garden and garage has recently undergone an extensive renovation project that is tastefully appointed to exceptional standards and resides within a desirable conservation area.

Improvements have been successfully carried out with great attention to detail and a dedication to ensuring authenticity throughout.

Situated in the highly sought-after Overleigh conservation area, this original stonemasons detached cottage is beautifully presented while overlooking the Overleigh Trust allotments and arboretum.

With great attention to detail and a dedication to ensuring authenticity throughout, “Salt Pot” cottage retains its original character while being sympathetically modernised.

Beneath an attractive storm porch a beautiful hand-made oak front door welcomes you to the property and leads through into the hallway.

Stairs ascend to the first floor and oak doors lead off to the sitting room, kitchen/diner and cloakroom.

Oak floor flows through the ground floor, while the generously proportioned and wool carpeted sitting room features a dual aspect and a Blue Lias stone fireplace with multi-fuel log burner.

The kitchen is a fantastic open space - perfect for families and sociable cooks alike, with a dining space for a large table and chairs, and fitted with a stunning bespoke solid wood country kitchen with oak worktops, double Belfast sink, freestanding pantry and island.

A custom hand-made oak stable door opens into the beautiful landscaped garden featuring an established Wisteria-trailed pergola and Indian slate patio - perfect for alfresco summer dining and entertaining.

On the first floor, matching oak doors lead off to the three double bedrooms, a fourth single bedroom, family bathroom and airing cupboard.

The principle master bedroom is wonderfully proportioned and also features a window seat and view across the allotments and arboretum - a view also enjoyed by another of the double bedrooms.

The large family bathroom has been stylishly appointed to an exceptional standard with a freestanding bath, large walk-in shower, freestanding washbasin and a beautiful slate tiled floor.

Retained by the original stone boundary wall, the property sits neatly in its plot, a delightful walled garden lies to the rear of the property and is beautifully landscaped with an Indian slate patio area under a pergola with climbing Wisteria, lawn with stone chipping paths leading around to a growing area with fruit trees and oak sleeper raised beds full of bee loving shrubs.

A driveway at the side of the property provides ample off-road parking and leads up to the large single detached stone built garage with power, light and pedestrian door into the garden.
