DESCRIPTION: This lovely property was formed out of two farm cottages which were joined together. The present owners who have lived here for nearly twenty years have carried out an extensive renovation project including the alteration of the outbuildings to provide a lovely sitting room. The kitchen has been completely redeveloped including the provision of a oil fired Aga and there is also a five ringed calor gas range with electric oven. The bathroom and en-suite shower room have been completely refitted, windows have been updated and the garden has been landscaped. Many of the original features of the property still remains such as open fireplaces, the Welsh Dresser in the breakfast room and the attractive brick and flint exterior of the property.
