Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Mistletoe Cottage is a Grade II Listed thatched property with character in abundance, linked by a reception hall to a modern extension. The property provides comfortable accommodation which includes sitting room with a wood burner, family room, kitchen, dining room and an impressive garden room which takes full advantage of the lovely view to the rear. Also on the ground floor is a utility room, boot room and a ground floor shower room. On the first floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom with a large separate shower cubicle. Sometimes older properties have limited storage and wardrobe space but this is certainly not the case with Mistletoe Cottage. The property has an oil fired central heating system to radiators and the majority of the windows are double glazed. Former stables provide useful storage and there is also a single garage.

Viewing is highly recommended.
