We believe that the oldest part of the cottage dates back to the 17th century and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller for the last four years. During this time a great deal of effort has gone into creating a stylish yet characterful home that will certainly meet the approval of many potential buyers. The cottage has benefited from a new electrical consumer unit with new power/USB points, many rooms now have recessed ceiling lights and there is external lighting to the courtyard and outbuildings . The property also has a new sash window to bedroom two, new shower, screen and heated towel rail and replacement carpet in the hall, sitting room, stairs and landing plus a new back door allowing plenty of natural light to the kitchen. The rest of the cottage enjoys an abundance of natural light throughout the day. Internally the property retains character features, such as sash windows, original style doors, cottage style windows and a fireplace with Bresummer beam and wood burner. This charming cottage must be viewed to appreciate its ability to satisfy many buyers needs.
