Property Details

3 2 2
A charming detached stone cottage with one and half acres, enjoying a rural setting on the outskirts of the popular village of Hazelbury Bryan. The property occupies a lane side position with plenty of privacy but is not in isolation and would make an ideal home for another family who enjoy an active outside life or there is the potential for a small holding and a taste of the good life!! We believe that the property is over two hundred years old and has been a very much loved family home to our seller for in excess of twenty years. The cottage benefits from oil fired central heating and offers comfortable living with the option to further enhance, if needed. A viewing is vital to truly appreciate this special home and its surroundings.
