Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming semi-detached cottage which has been extended, sitting in a plot of approximately one third of an acre (sts) and includes outbuildings to the front. The Old Smithy dates back to the 19th century and in recent years has been sympathetically updated to retain many of the original features. The house itself offers a porch entrance, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, downstairs cloakroom, three bedrooms and first floor shower room. The outbuilding, which was formally the smithy, offers garage and workshop and formerly had planning granted for conversion to an annexe.

The exterior includes a large front garden alongside the shingle driveway with plenty of parking and turning space for vehicles. The rear garden has a lawn and patio to the immediate rear, vegetable patches, greenhouse, shed and pond. There are field views coupled with a good deal of privacy.

Fireplaces with wood-burners in both reception rooms coupled with central heating & double glazing make this a warm and cosy cottage, whilst the extensions and outbuildings offer a surprising amount of practicality. A really lovely home in a quiet rural village. Available with no onward chain.
