Property Details

2 2 1
A delightful mid terraced character cottage, ideally located close to the heart of this popular market town and just a hop, skip and jump to some beautiful riverside and meadow land walks. We believe that the property was built in the late 1800's and has been home to our current sellers for the last five years. The cottage is now offered to the market in excellent condition with a contemporary stylish and chic presentation without the property losing its cosy old world cottage charm. Character feature include cottage style windows - some with seats under and exposed ceiling timbers. The cottage also benefits from Upvc double glazing and gas fired central heating via radiators. Viewing is essential to truly experience the ambience of this lovely home.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of light and welcoming combined entrance and dining hall, sitting room with double outlook and fireplace and kitchen with built in oven. An enclosed staircase rises to the first floor where there is a smart bathroom and separate cloakroom plus two double sized bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and boasting a dual outlook. Outside there is an enclosed southerly aspect rear garden with good privacy and providing the access to the utility room and gardeners WC.
