A fantastic opportunity to purchase a charming end of terrace cottage, which has recently been re-furbished to a high standard, boasting three good sized bedrooms, enjoying some countryside views and presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The property is situated within a short stroll to the town centre where there is a selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries and a variety of entertainment venues. Schooling for all ages is also easily accessible as are some wonderful country and riverside walks. We believe that the cottage dates to the 1700s and over the last two years has undergone a complete programme of renovation, transforming it into a stylish and contemporary home without losing its characterful appeal. The property has benefitted from total re-wiring and re-plastering, new uPVC cottage style windows, a new central heating system has been installed, the en-suite and bathroom have new suites and all new flooring has been laid. Outside, the rear roofs have been replaced as well as the guttering and the garden has been landscaped. The cottage retains many of its original character features, which include three fireplaces, deep window sills and some wood panelling. There is definitely more to this wonderful cottage than meets the eye initially and it is absolutely vital that a viewing is carried out to fully appreciate both the inside and outside of the property as well as its location.
