Good things don’t come in small packages...great things do.
Light, bright and brimming with rustic features and chocolate-box-cottage charm, this home
emanates warmth and welcome.
Welcome to Ivy Cottage, on Park Row.
Festooned to one side in ivy, the sign for Park Row sits beneath the illumination of a
traditional Victorian-style lamp.

Inside, light streams through the lattice-glazed panel and into the dainty porch, through a
partially-glazed internal door into the lounge.
Step through into the cosy living room. Whitewashed walls create an open and bright feel,
whilst plush grey carpet underfoot adds warmth. The atmospheric wood-burning stove, set
on a stone plinth is perfect for chilly winter nights.
Ornate sconce and pendant lighting aids the natural light which streams in through the front
window, creating a sunny and cheerful space.
Tucked away in an alcove to the right of the chimney breast, a television point is evident
above a built-in cupboard, its whitewashed wooden door harmonising with its crisp
Surprisingly spacious, there is plenty of room for two sofas, a sideboard and more in here.
Note the finer details that set this home apart; the chrome sockets and switches. Stylish
design and high-class finish are epitomised at Ivy Cottage.
Continue ahead into the kitchen, where immediately to the left, beneath the stairs, a dainty
dining area seats two perfectly (with space for more should you wish to entertain).
Cleverly designed, this is an open-feel and at once cosy dining area, with light filtering down

use of space.
To the right, grey, metro-style splashback tiles top the creamy counters, as the wrought-iron
motif that embodies Ivy Cottage is continued in the elegant handles to the above and below
cupboards, in which so much storage can be discovered.
Beneath the window is a stainless-steel sink, with a Neff electric oven and gas hob central to
the kitchen units.
A stable door leads outside to an impeccable walled-garden.
Take the open-tread staircase, dressed in a wrought-iron spindled bannister, up to the first

the bedroom clutter-free.
Space for your double bed and even an additional set of drawers in this welcoming
Refresh and relax in the crisp, contemporary bathroom next door.
Gleaming white metro tiles rise up above the fitted vanity unit that houses the wash basin
and WC, topped in a contrasting glossy jet black.
A deep-set window is centrally located, spilling light down to illuminate the patterns on the
Moroccan-style floor vinyl.
To the right, a shower surrounded by gleaming glass is on hand to help rinse away the
weight of the day’s work.
Admire the shape of the ceiling, the angles reflected in the mirror – perfectly cut to fit -
which once again accentuates the attention to detail found in the immaculate presentation
of Ivy Cottage.
Take the next door along to discover a second beautifully decorated bedroom.
Currently employed as a study, this bedroom is private and peaceful, overlooking the rear

a desk sits next to a built-in cupboard.
Dressed in plush grey carpet, this is a versatile and thoughtfully-designed room.
Outside, the garden is a harmony of texture, making so much of the space to hand.
Directly outside the stable-door, a gravelled patio hosts an architecturally arranged
collection of potted plants, with a stone step leading to a varnished gate.
Ahead, a slate grey section of decking steps up to a neat handkerchief of artificial lawn,
flanked on the left by a border of planting, and to the right by a wooden section of seating
atop a stone wall.
Vines trail over the cream-painted walls, with outdoor festoon lighting adding a touch of
romance for summer evenings.
At the end of this brilliantly-designed garden, is a contemporary grey shed in exquisite
condition, ideal for storage or even as a cosy summer house to catch a spot of shade.
