A rare chance to purchase a charming semi detached cottage with three bedrooms, two reception rooms and situated in the popular Peacemarsh area of the town. The cottage enjoys close proximity to some beautiful country and riverside walks and is within reach of facilities. Nearby is a Co-op store, hairdressers, fish and chip shop and public house, which serves food. Also within waking distance is a doctor and dentist surgery, pharmacy and pre-school as well as a primary school. The town centre and mainline rail station ae both a little further on.

The property dates to the 1730s, possibly a farm workers' home in years gone by and has benefitted from a historic rear extension in the 1970s. For the last thirty years it has been a much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller who has maintained and improved the cottage to a good standard. It now offers the opportunity for the next owner to add their own personal touches to create a home in their own taste and style. The cottage has a perfect blend of old world charm and modern comfort with some delightful character features and conforming to today's expectation has uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating from a boiler that is about four years old and to help reduce costs, there are solar panels for water heating.

Boasting two good sized reception rooms, that could be interchanged, if desired, and fitted with a quaint bathroom suite, this cottage offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for you to call home. In the loft there is a unique feature- one of the beams is a full tree trunk - adding a touch of rustic charm to the property's history. Outside, there is a large garage with power and door to the delightful mature gardens where you can unwind and enjoy the outdoors.

This cottage presents a wonderful opportunity to get a foot on the housing ladder for the first-time or equally a fabulous home those looking to downsize to special home with a lot of potential.
