Property Description

Full description

BRIEF DESCRIPTION 1 Rock Cottages is very much built amongst the landscape, set upon a natural rock and featuring an established rock garden to the front with a collection of shrubs, which lies adjacent to the private driveway to the property, offering off-road parking comfortably for two small vehicles. The property is approached on foot by a stepped pathway, which in part is shared by the neighbouring properties but breaks off into a private stairway to the front door of the home. True to its roots as a cottage, the home offers much character and charm with features such as picture rails, exposed timber flooring and ceiling beams, as well as a roaring open fire to the sitting room. The living accommodation comprises: Entrance hall with solid oak flooring and a staircase off to the first floor accommodation where there are two bedrooms, with the principal bedroom offering a dual aspect with a most pleasant view towards the Welsh Hills from the side aspect. From the second bedroom there is access to the loft area by a pull-down ladder and this provides a good facility for storage. Completing the accommodation on this level is a bathroom fitted with a four piece suite with a contemporary yet classical finish, with a roll top bath with ball and claw feet in addition to a separate shower cubicle. Returning to the ground floor, the property offers a sitting room with a continuation of the solid oak flooring from the entrance hall and features an exposed brick open fireplace. The dining kitchen features a bespoke range of Shaker style wooden units with granite effect roll top work surfaces with a utility cupboard off and there is also a cupboard housing the 'Worcester' gas central heating boiler. Benefiting from an extension to the home, the property boasts a garden room which offers a light and airy feel aided by a plethora of glazed units upon a brick base with a vaulted ceiling with 'Velux' windows and offers external access to both sides of the room. This really does welcome in the rear garden to the home which itself is of a low maintenance nature, laid to pebbles with raised brick edged borders containing mature plants within a part wall and timber fence enclosed garden.
