A rare opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed thatched cottage at the heart of this popular Staffordshire village. Having been sympathetically updated to cater for the modern day needs of a growing family this delightful home perfectly blends the inherent historic charm of the building with a few, more contemporary, stylish twists. Occupying a substantial plot on one of Kings Bromley's premier roads and surrounded by stunning gardens this generous home offers family accommodation over two floors. The first floor offers four bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom all connected by the most attractive oak gallery landing and staircase. The ground floor boasts a spacious dining hallway, living room, kitchen diner with Aga, utility and ground floor shower room. All displaying the most wonderful array of ceiling beams, exposed brickwork and floors including flagstone, cobble, quarry tile and solid oak. The real treat lies externally with the most delightfully manicured gardens to the fore, side and rear with further benefits including private driveway parking for a number of cars, detached double garage with office/studio above and the 'all important' John Taylor catchment area.

The grounds surrounding the property could not be more impressive having benefited from years of attention being lavished upon them.

The fore garden is equally as attractive sitting behind manicured hedging and a quaint picket fence with flourishing climbing roses and wisteria.

WHY WE LOVE THIS HOUSE...
It was carefully renovated about 20 years ago at which time all of the original features were enhanced. We love the feeling of being part of history but at the same time we don't have to suffer many of the issues that you would normally encounter with a house that is over 300 years old. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter and is blessed with a sizeable garden and because the house is located in a quiet part of the village we are able to enjoy the feeling of being in the countryside.
