Property Details

3 2 1
A delightful detached stone cottage with three generously sized bedrooms and enjoying a good location on the edge of the village but within an easy walk to facilities and close to some fabulous countryside walks. We believe that the cottage dates to around 1880 and has been the very much loved and enjoyed family home to our sellers for the last twelve years. During this time it has been very well maintained and improved with a reconfiguration to extend the kitchen, which also benefits from replacement units. The ceilings have been redone and timbers have been exposed bringing the character back into the property. The fireplace has also been rejuvenated and a wood burner fitted. The bathroom suite has been replaced as well as new double glazed windows in a cottage style have been installed. This charming home must be viewed to really appreciate what it has to offer the next lucky owner. The cottage makes a great first time home or family home and equally as a retreat from a hectic city life. However, it will certainly tick many other requirements. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to purchase this wonderful home.
