Property Details

1 1 1
A charming one bedroom semi detached double fronted character cottage in need of updating and maintenance, enjoying a picturesque location close to a most beautiful church and within walking distance to all the village's amenities. The cottage has been in the same family for many years and was converted from a former farm building. This delightful home benefits from uPVC double glazing with an attractive Georgian style bar and has electric heating. There is plenty of scope to further enhance by replacing kitchen units and the bathroom suite as well as decorating to one's own taste. A viewing is vital to really appreciate this lovely stone cottage - both inside and outside and also its environment.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of a useful entrance porch, inner hall, double aspect sitting room and the kitchen with view over the garden. On the first floor there is the bathroom and double bedroom, which boasts a double aspect. Outside there is a good sized partly walled rear garden with good privacy and enjoying a sunny aspect.
