Property Description

Full description

A charming, comfortable and good sized attached cottage offering 3/4 bedroom accommodation and a large garden in a delightful central village setting enhanced by Southerly country views.

Description 
Believed to date from the early-mid Victorian era, the property is embellished with flint, brick and tile hung elevations under slate roofs incorporating a two storey rear extension, which captures the outlook over the Southerly facing garden, the adjoining field and gently rolling countryside beyond. Being one of a dissimilar adjoining pair, the cottage has a wealth of character features. Higher ceilings upstairs, stripped natural and contemporary pine internal doors, several picture rails, deep skirting boards and moulded architraves, and two fireplaces are to name a few. This resplendent cottage has remained in the same family ownership since the first half of the 20th century and now has the benefit of an oil heating system with radiators and individual thermostatic controls to the bedrooms, uPVC double glazing with majority fanlights and security window locks, and uPVC finish to the main facia boards.

Location
