Property Details

3 2 1
A charming end of terraced stone cottage with two/three double sized bedrooms, situated in the popular Bay area of the town and backing onto fields. The property is just a short walk to local facilities, which include a Coop, hairdressers and fish and chip shop. The town itself is a little further on, as is the mainline train station. We believe that the cottage dates to the 1800s and over the last three years has been greatly improved and extended to provide fabulous ground floor accommodation that will certainly hit the spot for many potential buyers. The single storey extension provides a large open plan living space with view over the garden and has the potential to create additional rooms on the first floor - (planning permission has already been granted), two small rooms of the existing cottage have been knocked into one bright and spacious space but still retains its cosy feel and two multi fuel burners have been installed. The property also benefits from a new heating system, new kitchen units and bathroom suite as well as uPVC double glazing. This delightful home does need to be viewed to really appreciate the size, layout and ambience plus the external space.
