A delightful mid terraced character cottage with two good sized bedrooms and ideally situated in the sought after Penny Street, which is just a short stroll to the centre of this popular market town and close to some wonderful country and riverside walks. We believe that the cottage dates to the 18th century and has been a loved home to our seller for about four years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with the addition of fitted wardrobes to bedroom one and replacement windows and door to the front of the cottage. This charming cottage, just oozes charm with original features that include a stone inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam, Tudor elm plank and muntin wall, exposed stone work, exposed ceiling beams and floor boards. Catering for modern day needs the cottage has economy 7 electric heating, uPVC double glazing and a good sized garden plus some lovely views from bedroom two.
