Property Details

3 4 2
Morton New are delighted to present to the market this handsome village home that is being offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain. The property is well placed for the villages' amenities and is just a short walk to the primary school, public house serving food, doctor surgery and pharmacy plus the village hall. A little further is the village centre with shop and post office. We believe that the property dates to the early 1800s and was originally two cottages, which were historically converted into one main residence. This wonderful property has been a very much loved home for the last thirty seven years and benefits from nearly all windows being uPVC double glazed and oil fired central heating via radiators. This charming home offers well proportioned flexible room usage and although comfortable as is, there is plenty of scope to enhance. It is imperative that a viewing takes place so that the full potential of this property may be recognised.
