DESCRIPTION
Tudor Cottage is a most charming and delightful period home, dating, we believe, back to the 17th Century with later modern additions.

The property was formerly owned by Charlton Park and was bought by the current owner's parents for the grandparents who worked on the estate many years ago. This is the first time that Tudor Cottage has ever been brought to the open market. Whilst now in need of some updating, it provides a delightful detached home set in a lovely parkland setting and grounds of approximately 2.5 acres.

The accommodation comprises of entrance hall which has the early signs of the exposed beams to walls, a modern double aspect sitting room and a charming and characterful separate dining room with inglenook fireplace and exposed beams to walls.

The good size kitchen/breakfast room, now in need of updating, has a range of matching base and wall units and laminate tile flooring. There is also a separate boot and wet room to the ground floor.

To the first floor there are more signs of the 17th Century with exposed beams. There are also four good size bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en suite shower room along with a family bathroom.
