Property Details

4 2 2
Boasting over 1450 sq ft (134 sq m) of living accommodation is this wonderful refurbished character cottage enjoying some delightful rural views from the top floor and lying within easy reach of local facilities, the town centre and mainline train station. We believe that the property dates to the 1850's and formed part of an old coaching inn, which has in the last five years undergone a sympathetic refurbishment creating a stylish and contemporary home that will certainly meet the approval of many potential buyers. Work carried out includes, a new kitchen roof, new central heating system, new flooring and Oak doors throughout, as well as new soft closing kitchen units from 'Howens' and a modern shower room suite plus internal and external decorating and landscaping the outside space. The cottage also benefits from uPVC double glazing with some windows having a leaded light inlay. This home MUST be viewed as the front facade certainly masks what lies beyond the front door.
