A rare opportunity to purchase a piece of English Heritage with this fabulous Grade II listed property dating to the late 18th century, boasting in excess of 2000 square feet (196 sq. m) of space and presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain. The property enjoys a quiet situation, close to the church and just a few steps to the town centre as well as being within easy reach of some wonderful country and riverside walks. This delightful home, which at one point was two residences, provides comfortable living with the choice of updating to current trends, as and when required and exudes character with many original features. There are plenty of exposed upright timbers plus ceiling beams, in particular, there is at least one beam of a whole tree trunk - an amazing bit of history - if only it could talk! There are fireplaces and exposed stone walls plus a fabulous bay window overlooking the street. In addition, the front windows are original sash windows that benefit from secondary glazing. The property has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home for over thirty years and has been well cared for and maintained during this time. A viewing is absolutely vital to really appreciate what this lovely cottage has to offer as the frontage certainly conceals the size of the interior well and also the outside space. An early viewing is urged to avoid missing out on the chance to be the next owner.
