Property Details

3 1 1
A wonderful chance to purchase a pretty mid terraced cottage offering flexible accommodation with two/three good sized bedrooms, enjoying some countryside views and ideally placed with easy access to the town and the mainline railway station. The property is believed to have originally been a railway workers cottage, dating to the 1870s and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last three and half years. During this time it has been very well maintained and improved with the installation of a wood burner, the kitchen has been re-vamped and solid wood work surfaces added and new carpeting laid. Outside, the garden has also benefited from some landscaping, which has increased the overall usable space. The cottage also has uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and parking. This lovely home combines old world charm with contemporary living and must be viewed to truly appreciate not only the internal and external space but also the surroundings, which is close to amenities and some fabulous country and riverside walks.
