We are delighted to offer for sale this perfectly formed three bedroom character country cottage, parts of which were once the village forge. The property has been refurbished to a high standard by the current owners since they purchased it in 2010.

There is a storm porch to the front of the property giving access to the hallway. There is a dual aspect living room with French doors leading to the rear garden, wooden flooring, log burner and shuttered windows. In the middle of the property there is a spacious hallway ideal as a playroom or study and a ground floor cloakroom and stairs rising to the first floor.

At the other end of the property you will find the lovely kitchen/dining room, again with log burner, slate flooring, dual aspect windows and stable door leading to the large rear porch and patio area.

To the side of the property there is a larger than average garage/workshop with double doors at the front and courtesy door at the rear and windows overlooking the garden. This doubles as a very useful utility/laundry and there is side pedestrian access to the large level rear garden with an east and southerly aspect. There is a large outbuilding divided into two areas ideal as stores or the potential for home office/studio/hobbies room and potential to extend subject to planning.
