Features Of The Property - The property has been successfully extended from its origins as a blacksmith's forge and carpentry shop. The result of this is an extremely comfortable family home with an adjoining cottage. The current vendor has afforded considerable time and resources with great attention to detail and the use of high quality materials and finishes to enhance the property considerably. The property successfully combines charm and character associated with the original structures but incorporates modern facilities such as a fitted kitchen and bathroom suite.

The sitting room also has a fireplace with woodburning stove and double patio doors leading to the garden. Stairs to the first floor lead to a gallery bedroom, master bedroom and two additional bedrooms with a family bathroom that has a free standing bath, corner shower, bidet, wall hung basin and low flush WC.
