Property Details

2 1 1
A charming cottage with one double and one single bedroom, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and situated in a tranquil and little known area of the town . The cottage is just a short stroll to the town's high street and close to some wonderful country and river side walks. This delightful home is believed to date to the 19th century and at some point formed part of the post office sorting office, which was converted in the late 1990s. Over the last eight years or so our seller has maintained the property to a very good standard and improved it with the creation of a very useful downstairs cloakroom. Nearly all the windows have been replaced with new uPVC double glazed sash windows, the double doors to the courtyard have been replaced and new carpeting laid to the stairs and first floor rooms. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating to radiators. This hidden gem must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer and how it would meet many potential buyers needs, from those looking for their first home, easy to maintain home in retirement or a lock up and leave UK base. However, whatever the need is, this cottage will definitely make someone a lovely home.
