Duck Island House and Duck Island Cottage benefit from wonderful, landscaped courtyard style private gardens, extensive parking and a detached double garage, are just a few features of this simply stunning home that offers flexible accommodation for a family in addition to rental/holiday home income potential.

Duck Island House & Duck Island Cottage have been a true labour of love for the sellers over the last decade. They have sympathetically and tastefully re-modelled and extended the property, successfully creating both an exceptional family home, with adjoining cottage that has been used as a relaxed holiday let, which could potentially generate an income of around £25,000 a year. As it is also under separate council tax, the option of letting with an AST (assured shorthold tenancy) is possible.

The main house and the cottage are still connected by a secure door, and if you so wished, could become one very large family home.

The main house comprises three well-proportioned bedrooms, two boasting part-vaulted and beamed ceilings. The master suite has its own dressing room and private 5-piece en-suite bath/shower room with underfloor heating and ball and clawfoot slipper bath. The remaining bedrooms have the use of a fabulous 4-piece family bath/shower room. The character of this home carries through here too, with another ball and clawfoot bath and high level wc.

From the front door and entrance hall you walk through to a wonderful cosy snug with wood panelled and beamed walls, beamed ceilings, an inglenook fireplace and log burner. A latch style door then takes you into a breath-taking, open plan vaulted living room. This incredible space is a clever fusion of character, exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings with inglenook fireplace and log burner. This blends seamlessly with the extension which has a modern lantern style skylight and casement doors that open out into the gardens.

The L-shaped kitchen/dining/day room has also been designed to be in keeping with an older style house, but also planned to make the very use of the space on offer. There are stylish two-tone, shaker style units with contrasting oaks/marble/quartz worktops and metro tiled splashbacks, a butler style sink, oven, hob and AGA. This free flowing space has hard wearing limestone style flooring that extends round to the breakfast/sitting area which also has another inglenook recess. Like the main living space, the kitchen/dining/day room also opens out into the garden.

The remainder of the ground floor comprises a very useful utility room/wc, also benefitting from fitted units, a butler style sink and solid oak worktops.

Duck Island Cottage is attached to the house with an interconnecting door, but also has its own courtyard garden and private entrance. It has recently been used as an Air BnB on a fairly casual basis, potentially generating around £25,000 a year. There is further potential here if needed, but as it is liable for separate council tax, it can also be rented out on an assure shorthold tenancy basis.

The cottage is utterly charming and has been renovated to similar high standards as the main house.

You enter via your own front door and walk into an partly open plan sitting room and kitchen. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully fitted in a range of on trend, sage coloured units with contrasting worktops, metro tiled splashbacks and beamed ceilings. Behind a dresser unit is the interconnecting door. The sitting room enjoys a dual-aspect and has a wonderful cosy feel to it.

The first floor lies host to two double bedrooms serviced by a large modern shower room.

This magnificent home further benefits from gas central heating, bespoke oak double glazed windows and PV solar panels (owned not leased)


The part-walled and enclosed rear gardens have also been sympathetically landscaped and are ideal for alfresco dining/entertaining. There are various secluded seating areas, a pizza oven and brick-built BBQ, stocked and mature flower beds and borders and a very useful insulated workshop/studio/home office (power and light). Located to the rear of the plot is a large, detached double garage with remotely operated up and over door and additional door from the rear into the garden. Adjacent to the garage are a set of double timber gates that provide additional parking for boats/trailer etc. Plenty of additional parking is provided too.
