The Property

A much improved charming cottage, which is believed to date back to around 1754. Over the past few years it has been the subject of a complete, yet sympathetic, re-modernisation with the inclusion of Solar and Photo-voltaic panels, making this not only an attractive and comfortable home, but also an economic and eco friendly one.

The pretty front door opens to an entrance porch, which in turn leads to a delightful sitting room with an inglenook fireplace; housing a large multi-fuel burner with back boiler and bressumer beam over. Oak flooring extends through to the family room where an oak bookcase creates an attractive and useful partition with door to a cloakroom/wc and stairs to the first floor. The kitchen and breakfast room are well laid out with bespoke oak fitted units including pull out space saving shelving, Zodiac Quartz worktops with inset sink and mixer tap, integrated Neff dishwasher, John Lewis washing machine, large American style fridge/freezer plus Everhot Range Style Cooker.

Upstairs the galleried landing gives access to three bedrooms all benefitting from built-in wardrobe/cupboards with the master bedroom having a fully glazed double door opening to a wonderful bijou seating area with lovely open views. There is also a spacious family bathroom with free standing slipper bath, walk-in shower cubicle and Victoriana style wash hand basin and wc.
