The KITCHEN is galley in style and offers a range of wood fronted cupboard along with spaces for appliances and in turn leads to the generous SITTING ROOM which offers a slightly older, more characterful ambience with its large inglenook fireplace (flue currently closed off), wood beamed ceiling and three windows to the front aspect with wooden seating. FIRST FLOOR: The two staircases access both sides of the cottage providing independent options should the property be required for dual occupancy purposes. Benefitting from THREE BATH/SHOWER ROOMS as well as a separate shower cubicle the internal layout of upstairs could be altered to create various en-suite bedrooms and utilising the space that is on offer. Particularly noteworthy is the recent updating of the four piece BATHROOM suite to include large corner shower, corner bath, wash hand basin and toilet as well as the fine views afforded by the rooms located to the rear of the property across the garden to the fields and Brendon Hills in the far distance.

OUTSIDE: As previously mentioned the property is approached over its own driveway with circular turning point leading in turn to the substantial TRIPLE GARAGE the middle one of which has been partitioned off thus creating a secure storage area with light and power. Immediately to the rear of the property is a large patio area ideal for sitting out and a good size SHED and plastic oil tank.
