Full description

A completely unique opportunity to acquire a distinctive Grade II listed cottage which forms part of the historic village of Bersham and occupies an idyllic riverside position.

The subject of an impressive scheme of sympathetic renovation works by the present owners, the cottage today provides beautifully presented living space with all the modern conveniences associated with 21st century living - with no loss of the property's inherent character.

Externally the cottage is approached across a long driveway providing ample off road parking for several vehicles.

Worthy of particular note are the mature garden areas which incorporate good sized sections of lawn which are fringed with established borders containing flowering plants, shrubbery and trees. There is a pleasant paved patio providing ample space for outdoor dining/entertaining with a pleasant outlook across the Clywedog River.
