Property Details

3 2 1
A most wonderful chance to purchase a delightful terraced character cottage with three double sized bedrooms and accommodation arranged over three floors. The cottage is located in a quiet area - just a short walk to the town centre, which caters well for everyday needs. We believe that the cottage pre-dates 1865 and was built in the old allotment grounds to home silk workers. During its lifetime it also been home to the town carrier - Mr Hooper, who would have used his horse and cart to take people to the various local towns. However, it has been a very much loved home to our seller for the last five years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with new electrical consumer unit, new combination gas fired central heating boiler and new stylish kitchen units. In addition, the master bedroom has had fitted wardrobes installed and most rooms have been redecorated, whilst outside the garden has been imaginatively landscaped. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing with some windows boasting a Georgian style bar. A viewing is imperative to truly appreciate both the inside and outside space as well as its location, which is close to the town and some fabulous walks.
