Property Summary

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE GARDEN – but the house is pretty gorgeous too!
Cape Cottage is a very desirable detached home which is located on a private lane in Gilcrux and offers four bedrooms, three reception rooms and a stylish and comprehensively fitted kitchen. We love the way the master bedroom opens out directly onto the garden which is both elevated and very private and has been beautifully landscaped and planted over the years with an abundance of perennials, trees and flowers. A perfect place to enjoy the morning sunshine while having your breakfast! Internally the house can only be described as charming and characterful having been perfectly maintained over the years and in keeping with the age and style of the property – the wood-burning stove in the sitting room certainly adding to the ambience. It truly is a perfect home if you’re looking for something detached, with character and good outside space and ample parking – and Gilcrux is a delightful village with a great community spirit, all of which is centered around the pub and village hall.

About this property

“Gilcrux is a village with tremendous charm and community spirit, and we will leave with mixed feelings to see more of our family in other parts of England. We have felt more at home here than anywhere else and will miss it dreadfully. It is rare to find a small settlement with such thriving social activity through the village hall and pub, and we even have a part-time Post Office. All this will be difficult to replicate when we move.”
