Description - Twyn-Cott is a charming and substantial Grade II listed terraced house built in a traditional style with an attractive front facade incorporating Cotswold stone mullion windows with drip moulds above under a deep pitched and tiled roof with gabled dormer windows. The cottage has a similar and attractive appearance to the rear with the back door set within heavy stone quoins with an arched reveal above.
Twyn-Cott retains much of its original period character. The front door leads to the sitting room with open fireplace with a door and winding staircase leading to the first floor. The kitchen and dining room are situated in the middle of the cottage and with a further sitting room and cloakroom at the far end. On the first floor there are three bedrooms all with beamed ceilings and painted mullion windows. The bathroom is on the first floor. The staircase continues to the second floor where there is a magnificent principal attic room (20'2" x 11'3") which would make a superb master bedroom with a door leading to a further Attic Room (13'4" x 10'9") which lends itself to forming an extremely comfortable ensuite bathroom and dressing room.
There is a covered side access approached from a door from the street and leading to the rear garden, which is a particular feature of the property. The garden has been beautifully maintained over the years and is principally laid to lawn with flower and herbaceous borders and flanked to the side and rear by the outbuildings and to the other side by timber fencing, evergreen and variegated hedging.
Twyn-Cott has been a greatly loved and beautifully maintained home for many years and now lends itself for modernisation and improvement.
