A charming cottage enjoying some character features, partial rural views to the rear and boasting a convenient location close to a local shop, schools, doctor's surgery as well as the Nature Reserve. The town centre is also within walking distance as is the mainline train station with service to London, Waterloo. We believe that the cottage dates the 1870's and has been a cherished home to our sellers for nearly six years. During this time it has been improved with some new flooring, new doors and new bathroom suite as well as being redecorated. The garden has also been landscaped for ease of maintenance. The cottage retains character features such as window seats, wonderful fireplace in the master bedrooms and we have been informed there is the original flagstone flooring beneath the laminate flooring on the ground floor. To cater to modern day expectations, the cottage has uPVC double glazing with an attractive Georgian bar to nearly all the windows and electric radiators that may be plugged in separately, as required. This lovely cottage must be viewed and would make a great first time home, investment or as a lock up and leave UK base.
