Property Details

2 2 1
A delightful end of terrace character cottage with two double bedrooms, enjoying a lane side position with field views to the front and boasting a most attractively landscaped rear garden. The cottage is within walking distance of local amenities, which include a public house - The White Lion, garage with convenience store and a primary school. We believe that the cottage dates to the 1860s - was formerly part of the village's police house and has been a very much loved home to our seller for nearly nineteen years. During this time it has been well maintained benefiting from uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating. The cottage offers nicely proportioned bright accommodation that will certainly meet the approval of many potential buyers and it is vital to view this home to really appreciate what it has to offer not just inside but the wonderful garden and its surroundings.
