Property Details

3 4 2

A charming character cottage offering spacious, flexible accommodation with three double sized bedrooms, enjoying a central position in this sought after village and boasting some delightful countryside views. We believe that the cottage dates to the mid 1700s and once formed three separate cottages that were combined into one home during the 1930/40s. The property has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last nineteen years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with the addition of a conservatory/family room with underfloor heating making it a usable room for the whole year, the kitchen has benefited from an update and has a mixture of granite and solid oak work surfaces, the utility has recently had new units fitted and an en-suite bathroom has been created. The front reception room lends itself to many uses - great for business with its own entrance and cloakroom, it could easily be the fourth bedroom or form a small annexe for a dependent relative. The cottage also has the advantage of uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and retains character features. These include fireplaces with wood burning stoves, some wood panelled walls and exposed timbers. The property has to be viewed to really appreciate what it offers, not just the accommodation but the ambience as well.
