About the Property 
One of a pair of two cottages tucked away in a quiet position we are informed that the property is believed to be a former farm workers cottage dating back to the 1930's. The current owner has been the occupant of 2 Withy Grove Cottages for the past 34 years and in recent years continued to maintain and improve this charming home. An obvious feature is the attractive polished original floorboards throughout. Approximately five years ago the current owner added a conservatory extension to include under floor heating. The roof was re-felted and the timbers were treated with a 30 year warranty 6 years ago. The front south facing wall was re-pointed last year. One of the two timber sheds was added in July 2015. The shower in the second bedroom was refitted just two years ago. Set in a very good sized plot with gardens surrounding the cottage further improvements are possible subject to planning permission. This includes scope to extend the property.
