Book A Viewing



Nestled in the centre of the picturesque village of Broughton, is this stunning architect designed home, recently renovated and beautifully presented, offering a large and versatile family and village home. Cob House was designed in the 1980’s including the conversion of a C17th chalk walled stable, from where it gets its name and has remained a family home since. The house has many charming features including original timber beams and exposed brick walls.
The house is approached from Payne’s Lane, via the main door to the front, leading to the entrance hall with WC. To the right of the hall, a door opens into the first reception room, an informal family room off of which is the fantastic kitchen and breakfast room, overlooking the garden. The kitchen has direct access to the garden via double doors. Off the kitchen is a separate utility/laundry room which gives access to the garden and outdoor stores.
The ground floor spaces flow extremely well with the main reception spaces located to the left of the entrance hall. Period double doors lead into the long dining room with its feature brick and timber wall and lovely garden aspect. The dining room also has double doors onto the terraced area of the garden. The bright double height staircase at the end of the dining room leads to the upstairs bedrooms and sitting space. Through the dining room is the large drawing room, with an open brick fireplace and views to the garden. This is a lovely room with an abundance of character and period features and provides excellent entertaining space. Beyond this is the large conservatory with clerestory windows and glass walls to the garden and pond. This space with its feature hand dug well and original timber pump, is a wonderful bright room providing additional entertaining or family space and again gives access to the garden through double doors.
To the left, from the first floor landing, are the double aspect master bedroom and the guest room overlooking the garden. Both rooms feature period timber beams. There is also a large family bathroom with polished plaster walls, roll top bath and separate shower. To the right of the landing is the double height upstairs sitting room with views to the garden, perfect for relaxing or as a children’s playroom. Opening off this space are three further bedrooms and a shower room.
Outside the gardens are a delightful feature with a selection of shrubs, mature trees and specimen plants. The garden has an area of lawn, a brick terrace adjacent to the house perfect for outdoor eating, and a series of tiered brick terraces planted with shrubs, trees and surrounded by a listed chalk wall topped with thatch. The terraces lead to an additional section of the garden, previously used as a vegetable garden and greenhouse. This provides direct access to the double garage at the rear of the property with floored storage above. Direct access to the garden is also obtained from the front of the property via a gravel path to the side gate.
The garden also features a unique two storey building with utility space and storage below. A brick staircase leads to a light room with windows to the garden. This room, with its en-suite shower room is perfect as a bedroom for guests or for use as a home office.
