Having been built in 1828 by Wellington's Fox Brothers for use as a tannery and rope works, this characterful 4 bedroom cottage has been lovingly revived over the last 44 years by the current vendors and served as a fantastic family home in that time. Having undergone a complete refurbishment programme, as well as being substantially extended over the years, the property still retains many charming cottage style features whilst providing generous accommodation throughout to include a large kitchen/diner, 2 reception rooms, downstairs bathroom, cloakroom and 4 bedrooms serviced by a useful shower room. The outside of this property provides a truly unique selling point having the benefit of a large garage with workbench to the rear and parking space in front as well as large southerly facing front gardens and a low maintenance garden to the rear, perfect for sitting out and entertaining. A viewing comes highly recommended to truly appreciate all this delightful property has to offer.

ACCOMMODATION: Commencing from the front door into the PORCH which provides ample hanging space for coats which in turn leads through into the first of the two reception rooms, currently used as a DINING ROOM but could be used to fit the needs of any incoming purchaser. The SITTING ROOM is located adjacent to the dining room and features a focal sandstone fireplace with attractive log effect gas fire whilst a front facing window provides ample natural light. Located to the rear of the property the KITCHEN/DINER is situated within part of the rear extension and has been fitted with a range of solid oak base and wall units offset by a rustic tiled work surface incorporating a Franke stainless steel sink, space for a freestanding cooker and space and plumbing for an under counter dishwasher. Ample space is provided at the far end to accommodate a dining room table, perfect for a growing family, whilst a door from here leads out onto the rear garden. Also located within the rear extension is the convenient downstairs BATHROOM which has been fitted with a panel bath with electric shower over and separate W.C. Access can also be gained into the airing cupboard and useful storage cupboard.

Stairs from the first reception room rise to the first floor which provides access to all 4 bedrooms, 3 of which benefit from the use of built in wardrobes and bedroom 4 being a good sized single or perfect home office. Servicing all bedrooms is the useful SHOWER ROOM which has been recently re-fitted with a shower cubicle, W.C. and wash hand basin.
