Property Details

A fabulous chance to purchase a delightful end of terraced character home with four good sized bedrooms, extending to approximately 1400 sq ft/ 130 sq m of living space and boasting some wonderful views over countryside in the distance. The cottage lies within easy reach of local facilities, including a Coop, hairdressers and public house, with the train station and town centre a little further on. We believe that the property dates to the 1850s, forming part of an old coaching inn and was converted to residential dwellings around the early 1900s. The property has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for nearly twenty seven years. During this time the cottage has been extremely well maintained and updated benefiting from uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating from a combination boiler. The cottage retains character features, which include cottage style windows - some with deep sills, exposed timbers and floorboards, fireplaces and a cellar. This lovely, comfortable home will certainly meet the approval of many potential buyers and MUST be viewed to truly appreciate just what it has to offer the next lucky owner. Please note that there is no off road parking.
