The Property

This pretty semi-detached period cottage is thought to date from the early 19th Century and has been sympathetically extended to the eastern side. It offers deceptively spacious accommodation, with potential to enlarge the kitchen into either the hall or garage, subject to obtaining the necessary consent. The south facing cottage garden lies mainly to the front of the cottage and there are UPVC double glazed windows throughout.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a hall with slate flooring that continues into the kitchen. To the left there is a good sized sitting/dining room with an open fireplace incorporating a former bread oven. There are three south facing windows and a borrowed light window to the hall. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units with a Stoves range cooker, space for an upright fridge freezer and a dishwasher. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. On the first floor, from the split-level landing are three good sized bedrooms with pine floorboards and a second bathroom, again with a shower over the bath.


Twin gates lead to driveway parking for two cars in front of the garage. To the left the garden has a mature plum tree, various shrubs and a lawn. There are vegetable beds and a shed, with a pedestrian gate onto the lane. A door at the back of the garage leads to a gravelled area at the rear of the cottage where the oil tank and gas bottles for the cooker are located.
